Hello Cupakes. I’ve been MIA for a bit due to school. However I’ve had this “Get Ready With Me’ video sitting, and finally had time to edit and upload. School will be done in two weeks and I plan on working on loads of content. Hopefully I can schedule some stuff before the next semester rolls around. In the meantime I’ll leave you with my video. Hope you guys enjoy it. Check back soon, I’m hoping to host a giveaway before Christmas if time allows it.
What kind of videos would you like to see? Suggestions are always welcomed.
Today I headed to North Jersey with my friend Katy for the Latina Media: Beauty, Hair and Health Expo. This was the first year for the expo and overall ok. The location was great, right off the main highway, and plenty of parking. Milani cosmetics was there and I enjoyed their exhibit. So many beautiful matte lip colors (which I’m all about right now), but I’ll get into matte lipsticks in a different blog. One thing is for sure the panel I attended was amazing.
The panel was about real Latina beauty and included Massiel “Mankofit” Arias, and Dascha Polanco (Dayanara from OITNB), among others. Even if you’re not a Latina this panel was just full of positivity and self love. I encourage everyone to watch at least of it. I made a video which is kinda long, but worth watching. Of course I couldn’t record the whole panel or my video would be over a hour long.
All the ladies looked amazing and were just so real and positive. I left there feeling so inspired. I know I’ll be attending next year’s expo and expect it will be bigger and better.
As of right now I don’t have any conventions set except for NYCC in October. If you know of anything coming up in the NJ/NY area let me know. I’m into loads if different things and attend all types of different conventions/expos. What did you do this weekend? What’s your favorite convention to attend?
Till next time loves. As always comments are welcomed. Xoxo
Hello dolls. So last week I was contacted by Sephora and invited to a VIB event they were holding for Bumble and Bumble products at a salon. Bumble and Bumble is a line of hair products that I have been curious about so I immediately signed up. They were nice enough to let me bring a friend so I invited Katy.
So on Sunday me and Katy headed out to Moments Salon & Spa in Mount Laurel, NJ for the event. We were greeted by a lovely gal who checked us in and told us to head on in. They had a few stations set up to try out some Smashbox lip and check colors, some of the Bumble and Bumble products and mini facials with Ole Henriksen products. We were given mimosas and began to look around.
We decided to do the mini facials and I’m so happy we did. The products the gentleman used felt so good and refreshing. I will be picking up their wipes along with their Truth Serum. The serum is applied under your moisturizer and is suppose to be a collagen booster.
We were done just in time for the first raffle. Who could believe Katy was the first winner! She won a complete set of Ole Henriksen products. I was so excited. Then my name was called next! I could t believe it. I won a Smashbox best sellers try it kit, along with a full sized bottle of Smashbox Photo Finish primer which I love.
We were then taken to the back of the salon where we each had a stylist waiting for us. The stylist were lovely gals and very knowledgable. They styled our hair with Bumble and Bumble products and gave us some recommendations. My stylist put some curls in my hair but sadly I forgot to take a picture.
We hung around for a bit longer before leaving, but not without a swag bag. The bag was filled with Bumble and Bumble products, including a full sized bottle of Surf Infusion spray that doesn’t hit shelves till next month sometime. There was also two Smashbox lip samples and a $10 Sephora gift card. The bag itself is pretty cute and I can see myself using it in the future on a shopping trip.
It was a lovely day and I enjoyed the pampering. I haven’t used any of the products yet on my hair but will do so soon. I might write a review about them, let me know if it’s something you would like to read about. I wasn’t sure what to expect since I’ve never been to something like this. I have to say they did a great job organizing it and we enjoyed ourselves a lot. What are your go to hair and face products?
