Yesterday Essence/Catrice Slovenia organized beauty blogger event in our capital – Ljubljana. To be honest, I’m not even sure if we ever has such an even is Slovenia before. At least not beauty blogger only event.
I didn’t know until the very end if I would be able to attend as it was organized so soon after I had my little girl, but everything clicked into the place and I was able to attend this event. And I must say that I would be extremely sad if I missed it. Everything was beautifully organized – great choice of place (Design Hotel bar), nicely spread out Catrice and Essence stands, pillows + even cakes had Essence logo on them and crepe flowers also housed their products. Classy and with great promotion/socializing balance.
I loved the way brand was presented in short and to the point presentation made by Cosnova PR manager and Slovenian brand manager. No to mention that director of our distributing company was there to great us. It’s no wonder we loved the whole thing.
I’m sure most would say that the highlight was the fact that we could take with us all the products we wanted, but to me that would be meh if everything else was not perfect (or at least as close to it as possible). Don’t get me wrong – I think it’s wonderful and generous gesture, but interacting with fellow bloggers and people behind the brand in beautiful setting had more impact on me. Oh, yeah – and being one of the firs to see the Christmas edition was . And speaking of products – I tried to limit myself only to those that I was sure I would really try out … and I still got more than I planned to. One blogger said I should try one thing, Essence PR I need other … I was interested in “gel set”, but decided that I’ll buy one later on if fellow bloggers like it – like a lot.
Meeting other beauty bloggers was definitively one of the highlights of Essence event. All of them are lovely and interesting as their blogs, so it was a real honor to meet you girls. BTW – I expect fantastic and prompt swatches of Christmas topper. Before I go to that stand, all 4 were gone. :D
Big thank you to all of the organizers – I had lovely time! I must admit that I did miss my little one, but it was still nice to exchange dippers&co for cosmetics and chat for a few hours.
Now I want to hear how many of you noticed that Catrice stand was designed to look like beauty table? I kind of missed the “leg” part.
