Last weekend I attended HerConference in New York City with Ulta Beauty. I was so excited to head into the city as I hadn’t visited for a few years, and HerConference was the perfect excuse to do so!
Not only was I excited to hear all of the keynote speakers and attend the classes, I was looking forward to interact with other bloggers and ladies interested in media, and of course, getting my hair and makeup done at the Ulta Beauty Bar!
During the conference, I had the pleasure of meeting Ashley and Sam from Ulta Beauty, and both of them had so much insight on beauty products and applications. Ashley told me how to get my winged eyeliner to stay on all day (something I’ve always had trouble with!) and Sam gave me some tips for working my hair texture and we chatted about my recent trip to her hometown, Chicago! Meeting these babes really made the conference special for me.
HerConference was a total wonderland of empowerment and inspiration, and I loved hearing from strong and creative women like Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez, Lisa Sugar, Troian Bellasario, Gretchen Carlson, and Aja Naomi King. In between keynote speakers, we had lunch catered by Shake Shack and Panera (yum!) and my bestie Emily and I attended classes on publishing, vlogging, and careers with social impact to name a few. By the end of the weekend, my notebook was filled with advice from entrepreneurs, media influencers, badass CEOs, authors, and movers and shakers.
Not only was HerConference a wealth of information and good vibes, I loved interacting with media influencers and brands as well. I got to take home a few lovely things from Ulta Beauty, my absolute favorite being the Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette which is full of warm, sultry shades of highlighter, blush and bronzer, all handpicked by Chrissy Teigen herself. Swoon! I also got my hands on the Urban Decay Heat palette, which has the perfect shades for making my green eyes really pop. This weekend really proved to me that Ulta Beauty truly is All Things Beauty, All in One Place™
Now that I’m home with a journal filled with notes and inspiration from HerConference, I feel like taking on the world! I would absolutely recommend the conference to anyone!
