My Lipgloss Was Popping | IMATS

Monday, January 20, 2014

I survived my third year of IMATS LA! I also survived my bumpy plan ride back to San Francisco, so hello from my bed in my apartment in the bay *waving emoji*. Before we dive into Saturday, Friday night I went to YouTube Space with my parentals and we got a little tour and went for "happy hour" which is in quotes because I don't think it was an open bar, the food was bad, and it was just a lot of people drinking beer. We got there looked around and didn't know what to do, so after walking around aimlessly in circles for a little bit, we decided to hop on a tour, hop on meaning wait for a new walking tour to begin. The tour was cool, it wasn't as big as I thought it was, but I mean if i had over 10k YouTube subscribers you best believe I would film there! There was also a dog walking around and I still don't understand. Based on the amount of YouTube I watch you would think I would know at leat one or to people. Nope. Nada. I literally didn't recognize anyone. There were some cute guys though, but of course by the time I realized they were cute I didn't get to see their name tag/YouTube channel/talk to them. Sad day. We then went to dinner in Santa Monica and ate some yummy yummy food.

And now, Saturday. This was my third year ,woo! and my first year actually waiting in the line outside. I also went by myself *preface*. First year, my mom said her foot hurt and we couldn't stand so we got escorted to the front. Okay. Second year I went with Rachel and by them time we got there, we just walked in. This year, I got there around the same time I did last year, and the line wrapped around the convention center. Oh well, the line moved quickly. Once I got inside I knew the first thing I wanted to do was go to Sigma because 30%, no shipping, and I needed brushes. I made friends in line, the hour long line, and then we adventured IMATS together. Yay friends! I also got stuck in a corner because that is how crowded it was. Like I couldn't move. Ugh.
After I was done with my shopping, I looked up and basically ran to this beauty right here. Her name is Taylor and her youtube is BeeIsforBeeauty, because her last name is Bee. Is that not the cutest thing ever? Anyways I have been watching her videos for forever and I just walked up to her and hugged her. It isn't as creepy as it sounds because I had been tweeting her but still. Sorry, Taylor, I was just overwhelmed with excitement. She is so sweet, and stunning and she is traveling and going on this huge journey and I can't wait to see where it all takes her!

After we chatted it up, I walked around with my (new) friends some more and then ran into Sarah from sarahbelle93x, who might as well be J. Crew's one and only model, and caught up with her! After walking around a little more, my hunger got the best of me and it was time for tacos, I mean lunch.  
On my way over to Yard House, I saw the one and only Kandee Johnson. Just standing there, talking to a few people. What? Like why wasn't she swarmed? She's Kandee Johnson. SHE WAS SO NICE. I can't even explain how nice she is. She was running late to a judging contest, so we selfied (pretty sure that isn't a word, but work with me here). It was great.

Nicole. Guerriero. That's all. I wanted to wait in line to actually meet her, but this picture will have to suffice. *Crying emoji, heart eyes emoji*

I did some shopping, not too bad of damage, just some new (much needed) brushes, blushes, and some NYX lip goodies. 
IMATS is also supposedly a really great opportunity for new profile pictures and blog icons?...
