Garnier Dark Spot Event!

Wednesday night I was invited to attend a Garnier Blogger Event, I had no idea what it was about when I first received the email. I enjoy meeting fellow bloggers but I also get a little nervous since I'm not very good at initiating conversations with people I'm not familiar with and the 'omg I don't know anyone'. But turns out I was worried for no reason, everyone there was so friendly like unbelievably friendly lol
As soon as I walked in, I saw this little guy. His name is Bolt, a baby Dalmatian. Sounds kinda lame but I've never seen a real life Dalmatian before lol I was so excited, jumped in at the first chance to get a photo with him. This little guy has so much energy, kept jumping around and biting everything. He was even poking his nose up my dress lol!!
The event was to talk about the new dark spot corrector and BB cream. We each got a box to take home to try. I will be trying it soonish and write up a reviews on it. I tested out the new bb cream for combination skin and so far it appears to be pretty good, goes on matte compared to the original one where it was dewy looking.
I met The Maid Up Maiden. We follow each others blogs and twitter but never met in person, she is such a lovely girl! If you haven't checked out her blog, you should definitely do so!

We got a puppy soft toy to take home, they have personalised name tags on them! He's going to be my bloggy mascot from now on. A big thank you to the peeps at Garnier and Louisa from Brand Meets Blog for organising.

Now to help this socially awkward blogger =)
Give me some tips on how you strike up conversations with people you have never met before? 
I'm finding it harder and harder these days, I'm always stuck in my little bubble.

  1. You are so lucky! I wish I had an invite :) Striking up conversations is easy when it in an event like this. You could start off with a smile and talk about how cute the dog is or how excited you are about trying the products. Also it helps that you have some context and ask the others how long they have been blogging etc. :)

  2. Hi Kerker Jasmine has some great ideas:). I also find it is easy to ask questions about the person. People love to talk about themselves. So I ask them about their other job, their family life, are they originally from Melbourne...
    Looks like you had fun:)
