#sephorasquad Launch Party in L.A.

I spent the last few days in L.A. to attend the Sephora Squad Launch Party!  The trip was a total whirlwind, but it was an incredible experience!


Of course the first thing I did upon arriving was make a quick trip to the Mothership!  I was able to resist buying anything since the sale starts next week, but I swatched and sampled to my heart's content:


I stayed at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, rumored to be haunted by Marilyn Monroe, which made the trip feel even more glamourous!


P.S.  I approve of their choice of toiletries in the guest rooms!;) 


The venue for the launch party was the Sephora Studio in Hollywood, which was decorated with the cutest details, perfect for photo opps!


There were cocktails and mocktails, small bites and desserts circulating, but I was too excited to eat!




I stink at small talk, so I decided not to indulge my introversion and jumped in to meet my fellow Squad members and the team who made this all possible.  Everyone was really nice!  I just wish I had taken more pics with the other squad members, but there is always next time!


I was starstruck to meet Nabela and Cax, as they are two of the most inspirational and beautiful women I follow on social media - I quickly discovered they are also very down-to-earth and super sweet!


I also got to chat with @JeffreyBD and @MyieshaBD (a.k.a. Sephora Royalty) 🙂 :



Me with Erick Glam and Ohemaa Bonsu:


Me with Maryam Remias:


Kevin Ninh (my daughter was so jealous of me at this moment!):


Me with Ciera Jewel, Kali and Stung_by_Samantha:


Sorry, I can't hear you over the volume of my hair! 😉 


Group Pics that I borrowed from Christine Le's IG - Unfortunately you can't really see me from this angle - I'm in the back on the left next to Ryan Potter


Sharing our Beauty Truths:


Overall, the night was a truly magical experience and I am so happy that I got to meet so many amazing people - I cannot wait until I get to see the Squad again!


Several of us grabbed a quick drink at the hotel after the party:


Ciera Jewel, Kali, Christine Le, Sarah Bryant, Me, Stung_by_Samantha, Josseline Flores, Ashley Quiroz and Alexis Martinez

Me with Erick and Samantha:


I was also blown away by the amazing Swag Bag they gave us at the event!  I am so appreciative of the chance to try everything!!!!

***How amazing is the tote bag?:

15. Atelier Pacific Lime Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume: Besides the tote, this is my favorite part of the bag because of the custom sleeve😍.
16. Hourglass Veil Transluscent Setting Powder: Such an amazing powder!
17. Glow Recipe Pineapple C-Bright Serum: I almost bought this at the Hollywood Sephora store the other day, but decided to wait for the sale
