Good Morning !
As most of you know on Saturday it was the Greek Beauty Bloggers Meeting, i was super excited to meet up with some girls that i talked to via internet all this time and of course there is nothing better about sitting drinking some tea with a group of girls you share the same interest with - Beauty Blogging. (oh and Greek :p ).
I was up at 7 o'clock in the morning getting ready to take my English Proficiency exam and preparing my bag for the rest of the day. Due to the fact i dont live in Thessaloniki, as soon as i finished my exam i immediately went to Thessaloniki to try and get some shopping therapy fitted into the schedule.
I went to Cosmos the shopping center in Thessaloniki, the shops were great but one thing i noticed was a lot of empty racks and im sure it wasnt because people have been buying a lot because lets face it we have an economical crisis going on. I saw Korres store and i was ready to bow down in front! What stopped me ?! Probably the fact i would have been kicked out ...
Korres store was really nice all white interior inside and lots of shelves with their products on. I straight away jumped to the makeup kits that Korres has brought out . I was disappointed with some , i mean they seemed to bring me the idea that most of the products were things that maybe were not selling well. I was ready to buy the brush set as well but found that the hairs had fallen out in the packet (not a good sign) and that the handle of the brush was damaged. In the end i got the khaki set which i recommend because its really nice and worth it .
The set has :
Green Eyeshadow (Dark Green , perfect for smokey)
Green/ Gold Eyeliner (perfect for lining the bottom of your eyes with)
Pink Lipgloss (a color that suits everyone)
Sample of a perfume (who doesnt love samples)
We then rushed off to Garcon which was were we were meeting up with the other girls. I got there 5.50 walked inside the guy working there stopped me and asked me if i was looking for someone. I explained a group of girls, we have a meeting he said he had not seen any . Decided to go back outside and wait incase for when everyone arrives ... 6.00 and nothing. A part of me got so anxious i was in the wrong place and a part of me told me go inside and check cause the waiter could be blind. Went inside upstairs and finally found everyone sat around a couple of tables - i loved that feeling of relief !!
All the girls were so sweet! What i really liked about the event was the commitment in some people ... Some people had travelled all the way from Athens just to come meet us which i was so grateful about . Thats commitment. I loved Loreal , the two girls were so nice and kind making sure they spoke with every single one of us. Loreal also had this fantastic game they made us play were we put our hand in the box and picked out an item to keep !! I loved it , please do it again :) .
Flomar and Loisoir/ Oxette were also present at the meeting giving us goody bags, discounts and prize draws which well done by the way to the girls who won !! The beauty bloggers themselves , there were so many of us there i never got a chance to speak with most of them. Next time i need more time people !! I just loved getting to know everyone better, loved it !! Words cant describe how much of a good time i had and how beautiful all the girls are not just outside but within as well .
Here are some of the goodie bags i got which again i would like to say thank you for .
Enjoy and please if you are one of the girls that was at the meeting do contact me via facebook or twitter , im trying to find you all !!
Oh and if theres ever a meeting near you , do go.
