So, I had the opportunity of going to the Blogger preview show Saturday (June 16).
I was invited by http://www.makeupbyrachelo.com/
Esthetician, beauty blogger and good friend. I had already bought my ticket for the show for Monday, so I was in shock that I had a chance to go twice.
When we walked, in MUA James Vincent was on stage speaking. I didn't recognize him at first but I new he looked very familiar. Then I remembered, I new him from some YouTube videos I recently watched. He was very funny and very knowledgeable.
On top of me just being happy to be there. I almost fell off my chair when I saw what was in the goodie bag that was given. "yes....goodie bag". Me being the makeup lover I am.......I wanted to run around in circles screaming and jumping up and down. But, I didn't want to embarrass myself....or Rachel. Lol. So I kept my cool to make sure I'm invited back. 😉

I met one of my favorite teaching MUA's, Jennifer James. OMG!! I was so excited to meet her. If your not familiar with Jen James. You should google her and find out more about her. She is known for making your brows perfect. When I went to meet her. I introduced myself and I was super shocked she new me. Me "hiiii, nice to meet you. My name is Ladwina". Jen "Ladwina Holmes?" Me "yes!!!". Jen "Oh my Gosh, Huge Hug". It's so nice to meet you" Me, uuuurrrrr?????? WHAT???? I was done. That was pretty damn shocking to me. I was too done. I can not wait until Monday. I'm sure I'll meet more MUA I'm a fan if. And I can't wait.
