A couple Saturdays ago I attended a blogger event at Aveda in City Creek. For those of you unfamiliar with Aveda, it's a company that manufactures and distributes skin care, cosmetics, perfume, and hair care products. They also train students in cosmetology and esthiology at the Aveda Institutes.
Now what sets Aveda apart from other beauty product companies is that 90% of their essential oils and 89% of their raw herbal ingredients in their products are certified organic. Even their packaging is made from recycled product! Talk about a company that takes "Going Green" seriously! The products we were there to review comes from their new Fall make up line: Heart Lands. To demonstrate the products, the adorable Gentri (from Gentri Lee) gave the already gorgeous Nikki (from Fashions on the Fly) a makeover using the products from the new line. The end result was a fabulous look--perfect for the upcoming Fall season! My favorite is the lipstick she used--it had a dark purple tint which I think is a fun change from the bright red lipstick that most Summer looks have! I might go back and get one for myself real soon! [see pictures below]
I'm still new to the blogosphere so one of my favorite parts of blogger events is meeting new people and getting to know others better! A new friend I made this time was Jessi (from Haircut and General Attitude). She is just as sweet in real life as she is on her blog!
Now for some exciting news!
I've got a few things in the works for you guys:
On Monday, I will be guest posting on Nikki's blog while she is away on vacation! I'll be sharing my Five Fall Favorites so be sure to swing by to check that out!
Also, I've got some great collaborations and giveaways coming up this week! I'm collaborating with a group of gorgeous bloggers to bring you a collection of Back-To-School outfits. Also, Jessica (from North Carolina Grown) and I are putting together a giveaway sponsored by Our World Boutique.
I've also got a couple more giveaways that you'll just have to wait to find out!
Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for all these upcoming collabs and giveaways!
I'm so excited I can hardly stand it.
