It was a pretty glummy, rainy Monday evening but stepping into The Red Carpet Room
was a complete change of atmosphere. Miss Yvonne Kai of HeyDoYou
, was ever the gracious host, friendly and inviting – definitely someone I look forward to getting to know more about as she's also a lovely entrepreneur who successfully utilized social media and blogging to her advantage!
I digress so on with the Spring Trend Report. Everything was glammed up and pretty, with all the jewellery boutiques set up and showcasing their wares. There were plenty of lovely hardware and feathers, I think I should have gotten one of Oh Dina Hair Fascinations's creations. Looking back on these photos, I remember how cute they look and so much more magnificent in person. I had such a good time trying on a few of them with @ValTorontoGal, a new professional on the scene, a representative of KristianWard.com covering hot new events in the city. I'm really glad to have met her because I was starting to feel out of place, and had a very natural and infectious energy which made the evening for me.
My favourite aspects of attending events like this is the social and personal interactions. I'm definitely shy and constantly in awe of the amazing talent that Toronto has that I'm instantly in fangirl mode when I do attend events. I also enjoy being part of the experience instead of blogging about them from an outsider view. As shy as I am, I'm glad I still try because I did enjoy meeting Yvonne and Valerie.
Do you think that because someone blogs, it instantly makes them an outgoing, social butterfly? Do you blog and still feel shy? Stew on that for a bit.
Much love and sprinkle hearts,
