Bloggers Night Out | Dearest Lou

Bloggers Night Out

Gentri and I (and my pretty rosy lip makeover)
My blogger friend Gentri Lee threw together an amazing blogger meetup in order to help spread the word about her new Esthetics Business in Draper. She offered to do either an eye, contour, or lip makeover and offer some helpful advice. I decided to go to the party bare lipped and have her work her magic on me (;

She was very busy throughout the night doing our makeup and running the event but she did an amazing job, I don't think I could have been in her shoes! On top of free makeovers there were prizes, treats, and lots of socializing. I met a lot of local bloggers and everyone was so sweet and complimenting, I can't wait to go check out the new blogs I didn't immediately recognize (;

There were enough prizes for everyone to leave with something I won a gorgeous yellow statement necklace from Cheerfully Charmed and a pair of earrings from her mama's new etsy shop Pixie Pie (products will be added sometime later this week).

Here are some pictures I took throughout the evening:
The dessert bar.. yum

Necklaces from Cheerfully Charmed, I won the yellow set, score!
