PhamExpo Weekend!! Haul Preview and more!

I had such an amazing time at PHAMExpo last weekend! I plan on sharing it all on my blog, and showing you all the great makeup I picked up, but I thought I would give you all a little preview post. 

 I got in to L.A. on Friday afternoon around 3pm and checked into my hotel. This is my room I had at the Sheraton. I really like staying at the Sheraton because it's literally right next to the Pasadena Convention Center so I can just walk right out the door and into the Center. I wish the hotel would renovate though because everything is so old, it's just a bit dated. They have great service though.

 After I checked in I ordered some room service because I hadn't eaten all day! The turkey, bacon, and avocado club was delicious!

 Since I was there early I decided to go out and walk around. There's a lot of shops and stuff around there. When I walked out front I saw there was a band playing outside, not sure who they were but I was watching them perform lol. Next thing I know someone was asking me if I could take their picture and it was these lovely ladies here. I met GlamDollAloha and Lissaandbeauty and they were both in town for PHAMExpo. I believe they had plans on meeting but it was their first time meeting in person. After we got to talking we hung out the rest of the night together.

This was completely unexpected for me. I'm a very shy person so meeting new people can be hard for me. I always feel awkward and uncomfortable around new people, but it was not like that with them. We all got along so well. It was never awkward or uncomfortable. These were the sweetest girls I've met in a long time. We all had a great time. :)
We were all happy to get our VIP badges and wristbands! And we all had bright nails!

We ended the night with some dessert at Mi Piace. Lissa treated us she was so sweet!

And here it is my preview of many, many reviews and swatches to come! I bought a ton of stuff but I saved money for this so it's ok! Click on the image to enlarge! :) 

I got some Lime Crime, OCC, Violent Lips, Mehron, BDellium Tools, Ben Nye, Bon Bliss, Inglot, and so much more! I've been photographing everything and testing things out for review. If there's anything you'd like to hear about first let me know. 

Make sure you check out my friends YouTube channels http://www.youtube.com/user/GlamDollAloha  http://www.youtube.com/user/lissaandbeauty , I also met http://www.youtube.com/user/KairiYi on Saturday and she was super sweet as well.

I had such a great time all weekend! PHAMExpo was much smaller than IMATS and I loved being able to shop and talk to the exhibitors without long lines but I do want it to grow and be successful so we get a PHAMExpo every year lol! It was this best makeup show experience I've had thus far. Meeting all these gorgeous ladies made the weekend that much more fun! PHAMExpo was amazing and I already can't wait until next years show!

I have a post with pics from the show coming up next!
