Hey Stars! As promised I’m sharing a recap of my partnership with Dollar General as a blogger ambassador for A Day Of Beauty! A Day of Beauty took place August 8th, 2015 in Downtown Nashville at the Music City Center. I attended as a blogger ambassador for Dollar General and was able to socialize & meet customers, as well as speak to brand representatives from various top beauty brands about their offerings at Dollar General stores. DG allowed me to do some blogger outreach and put together a crew of some of Nashville’s best lifestyle/beauty bloggers, who helped generate lots of buzz and attendance. We had an awesome turnout!
A Day Of Beauty – 2015
During the event, which was very much like a beauty trade show, bloggers and the general public were able to move from table to table meeting with representatives from major brands such as L.A. Colors, Garnier, African Pride, Creme of Nature, ORS, Maybelline, Kiss Products, Luster, Cantu, Smooth n Shine, Curly Kids and Dollar General.
I had the opportunity to get insider information about the new product offerings and see demos on how to use products for specific beauty needs. Talking to the brand reps was great because it gave me a chance to make some new connections, talk about my blog and learn more about each brand and some of their future projects and events.
I’m telling you, Dollar General really spoiled their customers and brand ambassadors. If you were in the Nashville area and missed this year’s festivities, you truly missed out on a great beauty event, and everything was FREE. You definitely won’t want to miss this next year.
There was a live performance by Chante Moore, which was awesssoooome!! She performed a few of her hits and she still has it, her voice is phenomenal! By the way, I also had the pleasure of meeting her the night before at our meet and greet dinner. She has such a fun personality. She’s also the face on the debut cover of BeautyCents Magazine. You can get your FREE copy of Beauty Cents starting August 24th in select Dollar General stores nationwide.
A Day Of Beauty – Blogger Ambassadors
Check out my photo booth time with some of my fellow bloggers…we had a ball! Hey blogger boo’s!
This is what happens when you try to fit 4 grown women onto a tiny photo booth bench. Not to mention my big hair took up a lot of space lol.
I think Creme of Nature had one of the best photo booths. Part of the big draw was their cupcakes and free metallic jewelry tattoos, which was a big hit.
A Day Of Beauty – Beauty Swag
Here’s a spread of all of the products I got from the various brands. People were very eager to give you free stuff and explain how to best use the products. The brand representatives were very friendly and knowledgeable about the products. No matter what table I visited, they were all very attentive and took their time answering consumer questions and demonstrating how to use products. As you can see below, I have plenty of beauty items to test/try. These should keep me busy for a while.
Also Celebrity Stylist Larry Sims was there doing live hair demos and Maybelline had their celebrity make up artist on hand beating faces.
I’m really looking forward to more beauty events hosted by Dollar General and I hope to see you there! Be sure to check out the new product offerings in stores and grab your copy of BeautyCents to save even more on your essentials. Until next time Stars,
