Meeting That’s Heart at Benefit Philippines – Where I Went
Happy Monday! Today I am finally posting my day when I met Heart. It took me quite a long time to edit but I have been working on the whole thing non-stop. I’ve wanted to do this post since I got home that day but I wanted everything to be up together nd now they finally are and I can share it with you guys. It was quite exciting for me and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. You can read on and see the pictures or just watch my vlog of the day below.
I can’t believe its almost a month tomorrow. The back story of this is Heart planned a meetup with Benefit Cosmetics Philippines at a branch that is very close to where I live and a branch I go to all the time and get all my Benefit products from and the staff is so friendly when I go there. So before dance class that Wednesday before the meetup I entered the contest (which is still on my Instagram if you want to see my entry) I didn’t expect to win VIP tickets but the next day I was tagged in one of their photos and ended up winning. I still until this day can’t believe and whenever I look at that entry it still amazes me. I got to bring a friend which I as going to take Lynn who you know is my cousin who goes to a lot of beauty events with me but sadly the day before she left and I had no one to go with. I still wanted to go so while I was texting a blogger friend I decided to just ask her and hoped she would come. She agreed and we were both so happy and to meet for the first time. Shayne has a fabulous blog Queen of All You See, and amazing photography and is the nicest person in the world and you should check out her blog. We met up that Saturday in front of Benefit and went in together.
The VIP meetup started at 1pm and Heart came in and the emotion of seeing her in person and not on the screen was super overwhelming. It is so surreal and I still can’t believe I got to hug her and talk to her. There was a little program and a Q and A section and I was so nervous to ask her anything but maybe I will get the courage next time. After that we all waited in line and got to go up for a few minutes and meet her and since we all got VIP passes we had a private session with her. I was so scared to vlog but I did it and I got a few clips of us together. I wish I got more but carrying a huge camera was really hard too. After getting to meet her we ended up lingering at the shop for a bit and I got a picture with Arnold. I guess i forgot to mention he was there too and I was so shy to go up and ask but I saw he was standing there and he was so nice and said he’d love a picture with me. Now after that was done we both had a few cupcakes and got a goody bag form Benefit which if you watch my vlog you can see what’s inside but I will have a post of my first impressions of what I got on Friday. We left Benefit and went to have lunch and Shayne and I had lunch with another blog friend Genzel who I met up before and is super nice as well and has a blog and her version of the day vlogged as well.
That is a very special edition of Where I Went and still can’t get over it. I want to relive the day over and over again and if I could pick a day I would pick that one. Everything was so fun and I am so thankful I got to meet Heart, Arnold and her mom was so cute. I am such a big fan and getting to hug her and tell her how much I love her videos was something special. I have a Get Ready With Me on this day going up hopefully within this week but it is the biggest project I am tackling so editing it all together has been a fun challenge. I hoped you enjoyed reading this because I certainly enjoyed doing this and putting it altogether. I hope you watch my vlog and let me know if you’d like to see more of me on camera. Thank you again to Benefit Cosmetics Philippines and their team for organizing the day and being such great people since they are always hosting such fun events and being a fantastic place to buy makeup. Thank you also to Heart and her family for doing a meetup for her fans because I’m sure everyone enjoyed it. Please check out Shayne’s blog and tell her I said hi and sent you over if you go on over there. Hope you didn’t mind this long rambling post but I had so much to say and I think I am done now. I hope you come back Friday to see my First Impressions of the goody bag and maybe the GRWM video on my channel.
