Sephora's Skincare IQ event AMAZING

So this weekend I'm glad that I am lazy about reading things fully or I would have missed out on an amazing event because the flyer said it was not happening at my store, but when I got there it most definitely was.

Sephora is slowly in the process of adding to all its stores a Skincare IQ machine. I think they are pretty nifty. You give it some information about your skin and it give you what it thinks it the best products. If you find products you like you can print out a little sheet that tells you all about it to take home. I printed out a few of the products I had demostrated on me and plan to purchase some of them and own a few already.

So I had my skincare specialist Brooke sit me down and we talked. I told her the summer sun has been drying out my skin something awful and then I was worried about the flakiness from that. So she decided to use Bliss Triple C Oxygen Mask. Now I love Oxygen Masks and one of these days I will write out a whole comparison and the different brands because I've tried so many. But for now I'll talk about this one. It made my face tingle I loved it. I love the feeling it is so weird and fun.

Brooke used quite a few products on me during my session with her, here is the group of them together.

So now on to the other part about what she gave me for going.. The Gift bag.. it's like OMG AMAZING. I mean seriously so awesome. I love animal print and its red leopard print. (If you don't know my obsession with makeup bags, you'll see soon enough a post is coming about them and to share my makeup bag collection. So here are some pictures of the stuff I got.

So the Giftbag came with the cute Makeup bag

Murad Line Tamer 0.1 Fl. OZ/3.0 mL

Kate Somerville Quench Oil Free 7.5mL/.25 Fl. OZ

Algenist Firming and Lifting Cream 0.5 Fl. OZ/15 mL

Fredericks of Hollywood Fun and Fabulous Event

I went to Fredericks of Hollywoods Fun and Fabulous Event at my local store. I was torn between being happy and sad. The invite said first 25 got a free pair of panties so I took my mother ( I take her to a lot of events, she really enjoys them and it gives us some time to see each other, my boyfriend choose to sit this one out. Sadly my other friends were working or going to stores closer to home since I live like on the other side of the world from most of my friends.) But the reason I was torn was 3 people were there at the 6pm start, that made me excited because I got my free item, but sad for the store I know they are trying to improve there image. ( Fredericks if you are reading this.. doing a nice event and then shafting people a few days later is not the way to make you seem more desirable then Victoria's Secret).

The staff was very sweet and nice. I was super happy with the sales they had. I got a 20% coupon for going and used that against a 75% off sale and got 2 pieces of clothing for crazy cheap.

They choose to let us choose between lipglosses and nail polishes instead of giving us panties because they said they were out of the panties. I was excited because I had never tried any of the nail polish so that is what I ended up getting. My mother choose the same and ended up giving me hers. Yay.

Here's a picture of the 2 things I bought and a free thing of mints they gave me

Here's a picture of the neat nail polishes they gave us. Overall it was worth going.

I've always loved Fredericks but I've been sad with the changes they have made over the years to their selection of clothing and lingerie. I have been equally sad with the way customers are treated in the few I shop in, as well as them running promotions and then not ever having the items in store, or flat out telling me "That's a discountined item, we are just trying to get rid of, so of course we don't have any left." The day a promotion for free underwear starts. So here's to hoping this event was the beginning of a new leaf for them, they might be seeing more of my money, if not Victoria's Secret Pink and I are BFF's :D <3

Old Navy Bluesology event

I am lucky enough to live in southern california were a lot of events in the fashion and beauty world happen, not as many as say New York or Europe but we surely get our fair share of them. I was lucky enough to be invited to a invitation only night pre party for the opening of Old Navy's 4 day pop up shop Bluesology in Hollywood. I primarily went because I wanted something to do and I like the jeans and my mother really wanted to go.

So my mother, boyfriend (who I can't begin to tell you how good of a sport he is with going to girly events with me, and taking pictures and not having to bad of a time) and I piled into his car and made the 2 hour drive to Hollywood in traffic worrying on my part that we would miss the event because we were running behind. I knew that Luke Perry was going to be there and I didn't want to miss the photo opp. I wasn't too big of a fan of the show when it aired, but let me tell you I am now a fan of Luke Perry, but more on that later.

We got there and the crowd was mostly beautiful tall women, I swear it looked like a model party. I felt slightly out of place being 5'3, lol. We went over and got our cards for our complimentary pair of jeans and walked around. I even got my boyfriend to take a silly picture with me at the photo booth. We both got a pair of jeans, sadly I had to stop by an Old Navy the next day to exchange them because apparently I have no idea my size, but that was super painless and easy. My boyfriend was happy with his but would have wanted them darker. My mother was super happy with her jeans, since she only owns one other pair.

So I'm standing around eating very yummy appetizers and my mother says "Look it's Luke Perry." So I grab my camera and rush over. Jennie Garth and Luke Perry both sweetly agree to take a photo with me. Luke asks to see the picture, tells me it isn't good enough and wraps his arms around me for a better picture. I was ecstatic. I have met quite a few celebrities and this was one of the friendliest warmest encounters I have had.

After getting our pictures we stuck around a bit longer and took some more pictures. If it hadn't been located so far from my home I would have gone back the next 3 days it was open. I like the pair of jeans I ended up with and the cute little boot shaped glass cups they gave us as a treat.
