A couple nights ago I was honored to attend the #aboutlashnight NYC Blogger Meetup with none other than the Queen B of Bloggers herself Marianna Hewitt of LifeWithMe.com. If you’ve never seen her stuff it’s actually really cool to check out, she has amazing tips on beauty, fashion, etc. But she was hosting a blogger meet up here in NYC at the Dop Dop Salon in Soho and I was lucky enough to attend the event. It was sponsored by Allure Magazine and Revitalash Cosmetics.
When you first walk in, you get 2 cards that you turn in later to get your Swag Bag on your way out. Then you head downstairs to the main event. They had tray passed champagne, and hors d’oeuvres, as well as a DJ playing music. There were tons of people there, lots of bloggers and followers, industry professionals, and lots and lots of glam everywhere. People busted out their Chanel and Louis Vuitton, & for myself, I brought my YSL =)
Some really cool parts of the event was that they had stuff to do, they had 2 make up artists that gave everyone make overs by Revitalash Cosmestics. You got to choose between 3 different looks and based on what you chose, your look would be used with different products. They gave you samples for that look and then you got to keep whatever was used on you. For my look I went for the “Full Glam”…I mean go glam or go home right?! So I got the Revitalash Tinted Brow Gel, Volumizing Primer, Volumizing Primer, and Defining Liner.
You guys…I met Marianna Hewitt!
After you get your make over done, you hop on over to Marianna herself at the photo booth done by MirMir who had two amazing dudes getting everyone to party and use the booth. You can see the full gallery on the site for the event on their website. There was a long line to see her but thankfully you get your make up done beforehand so that you’re camera ready!
Meeting Mariana was pretty awesome. During Poshfest people were super sweet coming up to me telling me that they’ve read my blog and how grateful they are, and so for me, this was being on the other side of the table. If you guys have noticed, I’ve done a complete makeover on my blog, & this was all due to Marianna! FYI there are 2 emotions I absolutely hate: 1. Being nervous, & 2: Suspense. I was both of those right before I met her, so I was a mess. I hope you guys don’t feel that was towards me when you meet me!
One thing that I thought was pretty awesome, was that she stayed the entire time. When she said she was going to be there from 6-8, she was there from 6-8. THAT my friends is someone who is down to earth, she didn’t show up and make an “appearance”. Plus she was chatting with everyone and it was so casual, it wasn’t like a classroom style panel interview, just very low key. She met and took photos with everyone, even multiple times, heard everyone’s stories. She really is the real deal! She’ll be having another event in November guys, so please make sure to follow her Instagram!
The swag bag was full of Revitalash products. We got a full size Regenesis Shampoo & Conditioner, with a Revitalash Eyelash Conditioner. I don’t know about you, but I had no idea that my lashes needed conditioning, but now I do! Can’t wait to try all of these products and do a review. I love coming to these events and meeting new people and other bloggers.
One thing I wish to do next time is talk to more people. I was in line to do the makeover and didn’t really get to socialize too much, so I would like to meet more people and see what other bloggers are blogging about. Other than that I had a great time. The event was successful and perfect in timing, 2 hours is a great amount of time to get through all the stations and chat with people. If I were you, I would get there early and line up, so you can have time for all the stations and mingle.
Thanks for reading guys! To get the real time updates, follow me on Snapchat & Instagram to see all the fun stuff live!
