The Los Angeles Brewing Company in Downtown Los Angeles hosted our VIP Reception and #LALLBLOG Conference Kick-off. With the second level reserved exclusively for our event, the ambiance felt intimate, friendly, welcoming and may I add, glamorous?!
I was immediately greeted by tons of flashes that definitely caught me by surprise (hope I did not look too surprised in the photos!) later to be greeted by the beautiful Illsay and Ana Lydia. Such wonderful ladies, both with such great attitude and energy.
Milani Cosmetics were definitely present at this event, not only were they meeting with several girls from the collective for possible opportunities with the brand and had a beauty exposition with plenty of their beauty products, but they were also giving us mini makeovers! Jason Sanchez and his assistant Nina were wonderful. She was quick to answer any questions I had regarding their products and Jason gave me the JLo glow I had always wanted, plus some makeup tips I will treasure forever! Did I mention we got headshots too? Yes, but that's not all, we had complimentary red and white wine, beer and some delicious hors d'oeuvres (the stuffed mushrooms were my favorite!)
This was my first time attending any type of bloggers event and the only familiar face in the room was my friend Candy from Curves Ahead. As the collective group we are, we wasted no time getting to know the other girls. Carolina from Nina On the Moon, is such a beauty...and her outfit? Wow! Top bun, strong printed shoulder top, pencil skirt and killer wedges...gorgeous! Daily was amazing with her natural curly hair and Margo looking sexy with her Fancy Steps heels.
The experience only made me more anxious for what was to come. I left the reception with a smile on my face and my Milani swag bag. I was a happy chika!
