I hope this new week will be wonderful for all of you, and that your weekend was POPPIN’!

As for me, I feel like a new woman. I’ve been working hard on maintaining a heathy lifestyle . I also have been thinking of my goals and ways to get out of my comfort zone. With that being said, this weekend I attended my first Houston blogger event. I’m going to share with you how it went!

I’ve wanted to attend an event for a while, but I never know when they are happening. When I found out local Houston bloggers were hosting a Fall Beauty Trends Event at Topshop, I knew this would be it!

To be honest, I was nervous about going. I felt like the new girl in school, wanting to make friends and not really sure what to expect. I’ve never been someone that’s cared to fit in, but since I am so passionate about blogging, I really do want to make friends in the community. I decided that I would attend for a bit and see how it went. The thought of just walking in and out definitely crossed my mind. At the same time, I looked forward to it. I told my boyfriend about it in hopes that he would encourage me to go, as well as remind me that it’s usually easy for me to get along with others haha.

As soon as I walked in, I saw a friend of mine shopping. That helped me relax a little bit lol. 💆🏼 After lingering around and feeling like a creep, I approached one of the girls hosting the event. She was so personable and nice!  I met a few other girls and they all a made me feel reassured about my decision to attend.
(I didn’t take any photos for you guys. Sry 😅 I was so nervous I forgot haha.)

Anywho, I was hoping to meet my favorite Houston lifestyle blogger, Lauren, but she wasn’t there.

After the event, I met my friends for a GNO. 👯👯👯

We were hanging out at a spot with a really cool patio, and to my surprise I saw Lauren! I was so excited but nervous about approaching her. I think I questioned approaching her more than I would a hot guy HAHA.

Thankfully my friends are the best so they boosted me to talk her.

So I did.

And omg she was so sweeeeeet and humble!!! It was so nice to talk to someone that I have admired for a while! It felt awesome to express to her how much I love and admire her hard work, dedication and amazing content. I could tell by her expressions that she was flattered by my compliments. Not to mention, she was so encouraging and open to share her advice/insider tips! I was so happy about it. I texted my bf and bff to let them know 😂.

Don’t y’all think that’s a beautiful thing? When someone you admire is so lovely and wiling to return the support.

With that being said, I think we all have someone that we look up to or admire. It’s important to let that person know how we feel and that they’re hard work does not go unnoticed! Many times, we don’t because we are shy or may think the person will not care. But I can bet it’s a breath of fresh air and a rewarding experience to have someone actually acknowledge all that you do! Sometimes, (like in my situation) the reward you receive in return is even greater!

Tell me, who do you admire and why?

Oh and if you check out Lauren’s blog let her know I sent cha! 🙂
