I wear my heart upon my sleeve like a big deal

Last week, the Loose Button team celebrated their first anniversary by hosting a small meet and greet for some of their Influencers, and I was lucky enough to be invited! I invited my good friend Steph (in the blue dress) to join me. I'll admit that I was a bit nervous about meeting so many new people, so I was glad that they extended the invite to include a guest.

Such neat writing! I'm envious.

The first thing on the itinerary was a trip to Sephora. Once all the Influencers and their guests had arrived, we were each  handed our own little Sephora gift bags that included a handwritten card, a set of photos, and a gift card. The group headed inside, where two make-up artists gave us a small presentation on Sephora's most popular products, as well as some upcoming Spring trends.  We also got to pick one of the cards that we were given to have replicated on us by the make-up artists!  While we waited for our makeovers, we all took turns browsing the aisles, eager to spend our gift cards.

Isn't this such an amazing shot? Too bad I'm not visible!

After sharing our loot, we headed out to the Loose Button head office, conveniently located nearby, for some drinks and treats.

Way more original than having a name plate!

The red velvet cupcakes were from a local cupcake and cake boutique called The Chubby Bunny and were sooo moist.

We got a chance to meet the CMO and co-founder of Loose Button, Aditya Shah. He told us a bit about the history of Loose Button, from when the idea initially formed to how the company is run now. It was interesting to hear about so many other sample boxes that have sprung up recently! We all got a chance to mingle some more and get to know the Loose Button team a bit better.

It was a fun night, made even greater by our gracious hosts.  It was an amazing opportunity to learn more about an up and coming company, and also a great chance to network and meet some of the other Influencers who have received Luxe Boxes. A huge thank you to to Amy, Eva, and Susan for taking such great care of us and making us feel so comfortable!  I know that planning this event was hard work, but their effort and dedication showed in how seamless the transition was from one location to the next.  If this was a hint as to what's to come with the Loose Button x Dermalogica event, I'm triply excited and can't wait for a date announcement!
