Toronto Beauty Bloggers Meetup a Success!

This past Sunday the event I had been planning since December finally arrived. 25 wonderful ladies got together for brunch all in the name of beauty!

Toronto's biggest beauty bloggers and beauty company reps from as far as Montreal came together for a meet and greet. To finally be able to put faces to the blogs or company reps we talk to and read everyday was amazing. Everyone was so sweet, friendly and happy to be there which made the brunch a huge success.

It took a lot of planning and organizing and stuffing of bags but in the end I know that all the hard work paid off and was much appreciated by all the fantastic ladies that attended.

Here are some pics from the event which took place at Milestones Restaurant (amazing brunch menu btw)

The "swag bags" for each girl.

All the goodies in the swag bags!

Since I kept what was in the bags a secret for the most part the girls were excited to see what was in them.

It was one long table!

Isabel the rep from Marcelle/Annabelle cosmetics talking about her companies giveaway

The fab cupcakes (with an eyeshadow on top) provided by Nadia and We Bake in Heels.

After the giveaways the ladies surprised me with a massive thank you card signed by all, flowers and a gift certificate. I had NO idea this was coming or even noticed that they all left the table at some point to go sign the card lol.. sneaky girls!

I was so touched and felt so loved so thank you once again ladies xoxo.
Apparently im Mamma Far now ;)
