I stopped writing about blogger events for some time because I felt it looked very “showy”. Sometimes, when the stars are aligned, and the makeup gods deem me worthy, I feel super lucky to be invited to multiple events in a day/week/month, I simply don’t get around to writing about them fast enough. If you like to follow these events, be sure to follow my InstaStories (@voxielle) where I typically take snapshots of the food, makeup, venue and pretty props!
However, this is an exception. I was so thrilled (and grateful!) to have been invited to Dave Lackie’s famous beauty dinners in Toronto. This time, we’re talking about Guerlain – It was truly a #GuerlainLover kind of night. I wanted to share a few pictures because I think it was one of the most notable blogging events I’ve been to! It’s one of those events that ranks up there (along with attending Dave’s Cityline tapings in Toronto twice!) as being the highlight of an incredible blogging journey!
By the way, if you are not following Dave on his blog, twitter account, or newsletter, you’re really missing out! He shares some of the best beauty pro tips (along with Nina of course, who you’ll get to know really well!) there are tons of celebrity interviews he does that will make you appreciate the beauty industry that much more, and gives away tons of beauty items across those platforms too! That’s not even the best part – Dave is honestly one of the most humble and down-to-earth person you’ll meet! He’s got the most kickass team too – shoutout to Beth and Cookie, who runs an amazing behind-the-scenes show!
My Guerlain Story
I have quite a sentimental attachment to Guerlain – a story that I particularly feel very close to my heart is that I chose the Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation for my graduation portrait and convocation ceremony. Sure, it’s not my wedding but it came as close to considering how much of a milestone it was! I remembered buying it from Sephora during the VIB sale several years ago and had the proudest feeling that I was officially an adult. It’s a brand that’s truly near and dear to my heart!
Here are some pictures from the event! I hope you enjoyed them as much as I do – I’ll be sure to share some snippets and reviews of the products we go!
