My First Time at Generation Beauty NYC

When was the last time you did something for the first time? 

I really love that question because I think it pushes you out of your comfort zone to do and explore something new! When I received the email invitation to attend Generation Beauty NYC for free, I knew I had to go. Generation Beauty is one of the biggest annual events in the beauty/YouTube community, and I've never been, so it was a no-brainer, I immediately rsvp'd and got acquired my tickets. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend the Creator Day event and Cocktail Party where I could have hung out with some big YouTubers. Now I know to make it a point to attend those days if I do get invited again next year.

The event itself was pretty chill. I went in by myself since I wasn't able to get my husband a ticket. All it really was was me falling in line at beauty brands' booths to either buy, or grab the freebie they were giving away. I wasn't really "fangirling" on the big YouTubers that were scheduled for a meet and greet that day so for me, the event was legit chill and almost boring. Next year, I'm going to have to bring some friends with me to make the event more enjoyable. What made the whole trip worth it is the swag bag that I got right before I left the event.


Shirt - Ascend Apparel
Distressed Denim Shorts - Romwe
Grey Long-sleeve Shirt - Target
White Sneakers - Adidas NMD R1
Sunnies - Covry Carina Black 

I was at the event for a solid 3 hours, and right after that, I spent the rest of the day walking the streets of New York with my husband. Of course, we took some photos, but since we didn't really have much time to explore the city, we didn't get to take "touristy" shots. All I got were the OOTD photos you just saw. :) I vlogged our short trip to NYC and you can watch it down below! Please don't forget to give it a like and subscribe to my channel! 

When Jorge and I got home that night, I of course checked out what I got in my SwagBag and holy guacamole, THEY GAVE AWAY SO MANY PRODUCTS! I was shocked! No wonder the bag was heavy! I was so happy, like a little kid on Christmas day, and I couldn't help but feel extremely blessed and grateful. I filmed a GenBeauty haul where I show you everything that I got so watch out for it soon!

I'm so excited to play around with all these goodies, and please let me know which ones you would like me to feature here on the blog or my YouTube channel! I would love to hear your suggestions!

Thank you so much Ipsy and Generation Beauty for allowing me to attend for free. ❤️
