I can not express the excitment I felt the day I got my invite to the #Lashgang birthday party. It was surreal. I had only just gotten over the fact I was a member.
For those of you that dont know the Lash Gang is the proud child of Nouveau Lashes (if you dont know who they are you’re living under a rock!), a group of beautiful and talented women from all backgrounds and professions.
I was literally jumping up and down with excitement on the weeks working up to the event. I had never been to a brand event before so it was even more special to me. I had even been nominated for the #Lashgang Awards in 2 categories, it was really a dream. We werent allowed to invite anyone outside the Gang so I decided to reach out to the other members on Twitter (chatty Kathy). Make thing less daunting.
I spoke to some really sweet and friendly women before hand, so approchable and easy to talk to; The Beauty Kingdom, Aminali_Mua , poawong1 and natters101 (these girls are literally blogger goals definately check them out!).
I choose to go High School Musical meets Glee with my outfit and Makeup and obviously a pair of Nouvesu Lashes in Volume Style 1 to complete the look (literally to die for).
Enroute to the benue I ran into some of the girls on the platform and we walked over together, where we were greeted by more Lash gang members and a photo booth!! Photo booths are bloggers heaven which meant I was in there first. I live for photo booths.
After getting our fill of the booth, we headed downstair to a spread which was literally picture heaven. The cute vintage cups adorned with cupcakes and sandwiches had me in a photography, snapchat and instastory twist. It was to beautiful to eat.
Before we could tuck into the goodies we played party games which brought me back to my childhood; pass the parcel filled with Nouveau and Emj goodies, followed by pinata which I never played before. After the poor unicorn was beheaded we indulged in it goodies, filled with a combo of sweets and lashes and then it was time for lunch.
Having picked up several sandwiches I was greeted by a huge screen with my face on it, playing my Halloween Tutorial!! Safe to say I was deeply touched, its a whole different sensation when your work is valued.
We engaged in some social banter after lunch, more photos with balloons and the beautful Beth and Em. Getting to hang out with Roxanne (The Beauty Kingdom) and Pao was the highlight of the day.
The awards were next, sadly it wasnt my year but being nominated was in itself special glorious.
It was time to go home! But no birthday party would be complete without goodie bags, filled with a cloth #lashgang bag, lashgang mirror, lashes (obvs) and an emj beauty bag and more. Score!!
I am still reeling from Saturday and want to say a massive Thank you to Beth, Em and Scott for being such amazing hosts and for giving me the honour of being a member of a group which is literally squad goals.
Till next time! Alway Know You’re Beautiful #AKYB
