Last Sunday I attended an event hosted by Stephanie and Elaine of Blush Pretty, called the Blush Pretty Beauty Board. The Beauty Board is an annual event where for a ticket price of $35, beauty lovers have a chance to try out products first hand while speaking to companies (and sometimes even the owners!). The event was held at the beautiful Loft 404 and I could have easily moved right in as it looked like an apartment from a movie/t.v. show!
I was invited to Beauty Board by Steph from Fun Size Beauty who was super super nice and easy to talk to. We even showed up wearing almost identical dresses! While there I spotted A LOT of local bloggers I recognized from online. We met up with Michelle from Cherise Cheeks, Beatrice Trang, and Samantha from Gemstone Beauty who were all equally nice :)

Below are just some of the many booths at the event. I'm very sorry for the lack of pictures as it was really hard to get clear pictures of the booths :(
The brands in attendance were:
A Paper Story Kona Kare Blistop Montagne Jeunesse Cheeky Monkey MIYU Teas & Beauty Consonant naYme Crawford Street Paper + Cloth Dot &Lil Pelle Beauty Ella's Botanicals Pure + Simple Real Techniques Featherband Revolution Organics Kaia Splat Impress Nails Sweet Leaf Bath Co.
The event ran from 2:00-6:00 pm and Beatrice, Michelle, Samantha, Steph, and I stayed until the very end to get the most of the experience. There were raffle prizes to be won (Samantha won 3 times!) and I can NOT mention the food as it was absolutely amazing. The catering was done by Some Guys Culinary Co. and my favourites included pigs in blankets with cheese on top and the amazing veggies and dip. Mancarons also provided the best macarrons I've ever tasted.
I did make a few purchases and recevied an extremely generous goodie bag. I will leave these things for another post. Thanks again to Steph for inviting me and to Stephanie and Elaine from Blush Pretty for hosting such a fun event :)
