IMATS [extremely picture heavy]

what's up y'all?!? this here is HEAVY w/ pictures from saturday. i was debating on going to IMATS and whether or not i should go saturday or sunday. i wanted to go on sunday cause i knew it would be less crowded but then i thought EVERYONE is going to be there saturday. my boy gave me that extra push to go since i started backing out. IM SO GLAD I WENT!!!
i took a few pictures since i'm a dunce at times. i carry a camera and tend to forget i have it. i was just going GA-GA all over the makeup. WOW!
ready?!? lets go...

i wasn't able to take pictures of all the (contest) entries. too many people around.
this one was cool.

i'm talking about an hour or more!!

i was really digging this one. the design on her are people or bodies..
i'm sure you get what i mean.

XPPINKXX
yes! i met her! omg.. don't hate me pam for sharing this::
i recognized her face right away!! but i thought she would be much taller! i told her that but i felt so bad. pam you were stunning and just lovely.
man her posse looked so intimidating cause they were all BEAUTIFUL!
correct me if i am wrong, but i noticed some of the gals had DSK necklaces!
i just loved how pam talks. =D

yes, PURSEBUZZ. you know, she is much more gorgeous in person. i mean it.
her voice was much more calming and different than in her videos. now this is my opinion here. i speak for myself.
she was so sweet in recommending what booths to visit since she asked about the kind of makeup i like as far as colors/look.

MAKEUPGEEKTV! wow, i honestly didn't know she was going to be there yet i am a subscriber. lol.
i was so nervous but i got to talk to her for a bit and her company (i forgot if she said she was w/ a friend or relative. that's how nervous i was). but i did talk to her company too.


i was really looking forward to meeting MACNC40 and yeah!! it's PETRILUDE! when i saw suzy i was all shaking. lol.. i know they are regular people but i am a super shy person at first. i mean they are the people i watch on the net.. to me it's sort of celeb status in our own weird way. haha.
so yeah, i was totally comfortable around josh. i talked with him for a bit. really easy to talk with.


i was so surprised to see KUUIPO1207! i totally did not know how to approach her! i was scared, lol. not in a bad way AGAIN my shyness issue. she is just so sweet, she remembered me from twitter cause of some convo we had over twitter about special k cereal. lol. i was SO HAPPY to have met her!


now this girl here, FAFINETTEX3.. she walked in to the exhibit right when i was getting my wrist band! man she walks FAST! i tried to catch up to her (i was telling her this myself) and was going to say HEY AUBREY but didn't cause she'd think WTH?!? lol. she said i should have. idk.. haha. but i ran into her later. we chat for a bit. at this point i was overwhelmed.. i was shaking. ugh!! i'm weird i know.. but..


ALLTHATGLITTERS21 was there with Aubrey. Blair aka Juicystar07 was behind Elle but i was in the zone i left her out! IM SO MEAN!!! i'm sorry i was so so nervous. i was talking to elle and stopped for a minute and i said god im so nervous i think i could cry. lol. i must say talking to elle almost felt like her and i already knew each other cause i really had fun talkin with her. easy to talk to. beautiful personality. look it man im CHEESIN' it big here!
oh yeah, IM IN ELLES YOUTUBE VIDEO!
thank you elle for inviting me to say a few in your video.


i was riding solo when i got to pasadena but later lauren aka QUEENOFBLENDING gets there with her daughter.
p.s. this is for that ONE person who said that i didn't know her at all! LMAO!
so yeah, i was in lauren's ENTOURAGE *so she said* and well we went exploring and walking around. wow, she got stopped so many times by her subbies. i had fun seeing others getting nervous with her. i was like MAN IS THAT HOW I GET with the OTHER GURUS?!


hey now it's ENKORE! at this point i'm not smiling all that big cause my feet were killing me!!
it was so great to have met him!



it seemed that when lauren met/ran into pursebuzz,enkore,temptalia (which i forgot to take pic with! WTF?!)..this gal here, HERROYALPOSHNESS, was with them and well they seemed to know her. i was like ???
but i got to talk to her and well she is such a doll! she was so shy it was cute. let me add BRAVE for flying solo from the UK just to come for IMATs. my hero there!
i'm so glad i got to meet you and exchanged info. i definitely can't wait to keep in touch with you.


every guru that i met were so wonderful but my highlight was ITSJUDYTIME!
i was jumping for joy inside! cool thing, i wasn't the only one nervous.. she was too so i was told.
wow!! she was also another girl who was easy to talk to. wow, sweetest girl ever! she was with her friend, aka her entourage hehe. i really had fun chatting with her. wow, i'm still in that AMAZED zone.


i witnessed a guru meeting another guru. it was so awesome and cute. i swear.. lauren, judy, judy's friend and i ended up talking away. i loved it.

finally i got to meet ANHADOESMAKEUP for the very first time.
you and lauren are like partners in makeup crime. haha. i kid.
yeah, she is even more gorgeous in person. sweet girl. yeah, i was also nervous with her.
i really want anha at my shoot.. i aleady let her know. =D

so there it is. for me, it was such a wonderful and amazing experience that i know i will truly carry with me forever. it was overwhelming for me cause there was so much going on.. the booths, the crowd, the gurus!!! it was all too much but i took it in... absorbed it all. i wasn't going to cry but yeah i was shaking cause of my damn shyness and getting all nervous.
i saw familiar faces but wasn't sure where i have seen them from.
i missed the opportunity of meeting or taking pictures with five people (blogger/guru) including Linda from MYPRETTYPINKBOX and Bryani aka STATUSMODE.
i am ready for next year. will you be there?
