Smoky Eye by Shimmer and Spice

If you were paying attention on my InstaStories you’ll know that I had my makeup done by Kristyn at Shimmer and Spice  (but in case you missed it, hint hint it’s on the left) and you were probably wondering why the hell I had on such fancy makeup for a Monday – well I am finally here to share with you the Philly Blogger Event I attended and how I ended up dashing off with such a smoky look. The event was hosted by Lauren Priori in her new jewellery space in Rittenhouse Square for a number of Greater Philadelphia bloggers – for the most part I would say fashion bloggers as the outfits in the room were all on ten. A fellow blogger Carly reached out me and asked if I was interested in attending the event and once I saw the custom engagement rings on Lauren’s page I knew I had to see her work in person. The afternoon was so much more than just jewellery with rosé, dessert and a makeup tutorial we kept busy.

Makeup by Shimmer and Spice

Don’t ask me how I was roped into being the demonstratation for the smoky eye look when I can hold all the makeup I own in one hand (while except my lipstick collection) but nonetheless it happened and it looked great! I was so impressed with the outcome and felt like I should have been going on a date or getting more engagement photos instead of hanging out with Kendall that night. Regardless, it was a great afternoon and a really good opportunity to meet fellow bloggers in the area – unfortunately I had to dash out early due to a previous commitment and missed the group photos but they all look great!

Yes Way Rose

Instagram is a really crazy platform because now with InstaStories I feel like I can really get to know my followers and am so happy to connect with other bloggers and actually get to meet them in person and not only behind a screen. Cheers to Monday and cute swag bags now pass the rosé!
