After an amazing make-over experience at Sephora, I was checking my social media and realized my favorite blogger, Erika Fox ( AKA Retro Flame, who you guys see me talk about all the time) had tweeted me and I had been tagged in something on instagram. I went to investigate further and it turns out that I won her epic cosmetics giveaway! I couldn’t believe it! I usually don’t win giveaways, so I was so excited! So she asked me to send her my information, so she could get everything sent out. Long story short, we decided to meet up in the city and grab coffee together!
Today I had the pleasure of meeting my absolute favorite blogger @retroflame ! She was so lovely and I feel so lucky I got to meet her! We grabbed coffee together and she handed me some amazing goodies! I won her recent giveaway! What a great way to start off the day 😊 #bloggers #retrosgiveaway #retroflame
After a few subways rides, I am finally on the beautiful Upper East side, as I walk along the streets I am expecting to see Blair Waldorf walking past with Serena in tow. I have no such luck and head to my destination. Usually, I am never late but of course today…I am running about 10 minutes late.
I step into Petite Shell and I see a girl with beautiful red hair, “Erika?” I ask. She looks over at me and smiles. I take a spot right next to her and we started to chat like we were long lost friends. She’s lovely and the conversation flowed naturally, we talked all about Ireland and New York. Some of the differences between fashion and soon enough we were chatting about everything under the sun.I see a massive pink bag as I make myself comfortable and I soon realize it is full of the giveaway items! I didn’t quite realize how much I won until I transferred the products to my massive bag. She mentioned how excited she was for me to check everything out.
It was truly a great experience, yes I am excited that I won the giveaway. However, I was more excited that I got to spend time with the woman behind my favorite blog. She gave me some great advice for the future and I am looking forward to seeing what kinds of adventures she goes on next.
