Beautycon 2013 Recap

Hey all and Happy Mooncake Day! I know this is a terribly late post for Beautycon, but when you see the onslaught of photos, you’ll realize why. Hopefully I can still recount what we did there. Anyways, I may not go into too much details, but let the photos speak for the event as well as the vlog at the end of the post.

So first off, I didn’t really take any photos on Day 1 of Beautycon, which was Industry night at Youtube Space LA. Second day, Christen and I met up with Crystal and Janelle for yummy brunch at 26 Beach. KL unfortunately had morning meetings all day, so couldn’t join us. As you can see below, the decor and food was just too awesome not to take any photos.


Then Crystal took us to the canal just down the street from brunch–such a beautiful area!


Then it was time to head over to Beautycon’s VIP Pool Party at Roosevelt Hotel hosted by The Platform

After the pool party, it was time to try out these macaron ice cream sandwiches at MILK with KL, Christen and Janelle.


Then it was time for Beautycon whole day Saturday. The line must have spread all around the building with some folks staying in line for good 4-5 hours unfortunately. I heard some passed out due to the heat. =/ Besides the spacing and capacity limitations at Sirens Studio, the conference was spread out into several floors with various activities for each floors.

Then for our last day, Christen had to leave us in the morning as KL and I got ready to head over to her family’s fruit farm in Riverside. We got to sample different types of fruits and I was introduced to the red kinds of dragon fruits. They are definitely much sweeter than the white ones and if I wasn’t a fan of dragon fruits before, these definitely changed my mind. I have to thank KL’s relatives for sending some fruits home with me–they were gone within the week.

After the farm visit, we went straight over to YaYaLifestyle’s new restaurant, Kickin Kasian where we met up with Jenny from MisoJenny and Anne from Beautybitten, to sample some of the yummy cajun seafood goodies prior to opening week. Yaya definitely spoiled us for days and our stomach could not have walked out happier.

The girls were absolutely fascinated by the beauty app that YaYa was demonstrating. =D
