Bridal Expo


This past weekend, the boy and I worked my first bridal expo booth. It was very exciting to say the least! Of course going into it I had the nerves and dreaded all sorts of things, like "What if no one comes to my booth?", "What if people think makeup isn't that important?", "What if my booth isn't VaVaVoom enough for them?". Well, I got over all my fears super fast. It seemed like once those doors opened people flooded in and headed straight for my table. I couldn't believe it! I met tons of different people, answered yearning questions about my job, and above all had the biggest smile on my face:). My wonderful bf was such a big help as well. It was so nice to have some extra support there for when I was questioning myself and needed to be brought back down to earth. Oh and did I mention he offered to go?? Such a keeper that one is :).

I'm so thrilled that everything went as well as it did this past weekend. Sometimes I find that I doubt this job way more than I should, but I think that's normal and keeps me grounded. And right when I start to doubt everything this makeup world entails, a "Rock Star" moment happens and I love my job even more and know that this is exactly what I'm supposed to be doing. It really proves the saying of "follow your dreams", and that's exactly what I did and I honestly couldn't be happier.
