BEAUTYCON NYC 2015

This past Saturday, my sister  + I had the opportunity to go to BeautyCon in New York City! Neither of us had ever been before, but since it was right in our backyard, we jumped at the chance to attend. It was quite the experience – so many people, so many YouTubers, bloggers + celebrities, lots of freebies, great panels, and a ton of new products + beauty apps to try! I don’t feel the need to share a full play-by-play of the day, but I wanted to share some of the fun pictures that we snapped!

        I hope that you get a lot of hits. I am still figuring it out but I know you can’t promote yourself. Someone else offered to post one of mine on there so I promised I would make an account and do the same for others. I will randomly be posting on there from different blogs. Yours will be one of them if you don’t care. 🙂
