Well if you haven’t heard already there was a FABULOUS Toronto Beauty Bloggers (TBB) meetup held on Sunday March 27th, 2011 at the Loki Salon provided by Kavita hosted by the fabulous Farah of Faces by Farah .
This was my first EVER meetup with TBB and I have to admit – I was nervous and intimidated! I remember before buying my ticket email Farah and asking her if it was ok for me to attend since I wasn’t a makeup artist and my blog was very new. Farah with her virtual open arms told me to come so I did!
Boy am I glad I did! By fluke I met Farah at another event the week before but other than that I didn’t know anyone at the event and was having trouble getting everyone’s names and twitter handles straight LOL!
Here are a few photos then I’ll post what I learned from the meetup.
First up, some pictures of the beautiful venue (because I got there early 😛 )
Now on to some pictures of bloggers!

Overloaded with pictures? Sorry!!!
Ok so here’s what I learned:
1) Beauty Bloggers are NOT scary. They are amazing and so super friendly and welcoming
2) I need business cards LOL – this should have been a no brainer for me but I’m pretty new to the blogging world and never even THOUGHT about carrying business cards for my two blogs.
3) I’m better with twitter handles than I am with names…but now that I have put twitter handles WITH names to FACES I think I will be able to remember in the future (but please don’t test me)
4) TBB meet ups are AMAZING! And even though I didn’t know ONE person there, it was really cool because I still felt like I belonged 🙂
Some people I didn’t get pictures of THIS time but I will for sure next time that I wanted to say “hi” to:
Jenn of Spiced Beauty
who KNEW who I was before I introduced myself…talk about flattered!
Jill of Batting a Lash
with whom I tweet with a lot about Avon stuff 😉
Lena of Listen to Lena
who was so full of energy and loved my name LOL!
Fiona of the Product War series that I JUST discovered…it was fun hanging with you!
And of course I can’t wait to get to know MANY of the other ladies I tweet with but didn’t get a chance to chat with on Sunday 🙂
Well that’s it from me, I’m looking forward to being more a part of the TBB community and of course looking forward to the next meet up.
