Last Tuesday my long time friend fellow blogger Kim of Makeup by Kim Porter hosted our very first blogging event. It was a great success! We had an amazing time with our readers, fellow bloggers, family, friends, and sponsors.

Our guests were able to enjoy a candy and popcorn buffet from Huey’s Chueys Candy Boutique, express manicures sponsored by Diosa Nails and Shic Beauty Salon, wine and cocktails sponsored by Zico Coconut Water, hors d’oeuvres by Chef Shani of Chef 71ATe and Taste Buds. Shopping was provided by Natty Boutique and Kim provided beauty makeovers while I provided styling advice on upcoming trends and dressing for your body type.

We also held two giveaways sponsored by Fly Credentials and Elleina D. Accessories

All guests went home with great gift bags as well!

Overall it was a great success and a great event. I would like to thank everyone who came out to support and all of those who made this event possible. Special thanks to Melissa of O So Chic, Rob, Camilla, David, Ian, Lloyd, Chanell, Mia, and Krystyna for their help with making sure the event ran smoothly. We really appreciate it! Check out some photos from the event.

As I posted before, there were many companies that were scheduled to be at IMATS. It was hard for me not to purchase something from each table. Many notable brands were represented and of course they lived up to their name. Places like Inglot, Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Stila, LA Splash Cosmetics were packed with an insane amount of people. The Inglot line was almost wrapped around the room. They had the largest station and the most customers because they were offering 30% off.

First up we have OCC- Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.
