pays to wake up early on the weekend

I skipped my Saturday morning run with my dad so I could go to the Nordstrom Cosmetics Trend Show in downtown Seattle. (I didn't feel too guilty because it was raining/snowing anyway!)

This was my second time attending this event. It's bad because I'm always a sucker for makeovers and new products!

I may not know what I'm going to do with it, but I'm still gonna buy it.

Anysomuchforbeingarecessionista, the Trend Show is basically a fashion show for makeup. During the show, they also have several drawings for random prizes...

I wasn't expecting to win anything. In fact, I was in the middle of digging in my bag when my name was suddenly announced. I'm pretty sure my hand just flew up and I just yelled "ME!" (Think Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde when she found out she got the final internship spot... Ha! )

And I won what I felt was the best prize - a Chanel cosmetics gift bag! Other prizes were simply creams and lotions and mascaras. This is what was included in mine:

  • a full size Ombre Essentielle eyeshadow in safari (gorg gray color)
  • a full size Rouge Hydrabase lipstick in aura (sheer pink color)
  • a deluxe sample of Precision Beaute Initiale Eye cream
  • a deluxe sample fo Chanel No 5
  • and a sample of Chanel No 5 fluid body gel
Even the lovelies sitting in front of me turned around to say how jealous they were!
