My Top 13 Beauty Au Natural Moments of 2010

I have been compiling a list of the wonderful things that have happened this year and it seems like a large majority of them revolve around my blog and Bare Escentuals so I wanted to post my list here to share with my amazing and loyal friends and readers.

I also wanted to share that Bare Escentuals just posted their Top 10 Facebook Moments on their Facebook page and they also sent out an email of their 10 BARE facts of 2010.  Top 2010 Moments are popping up everywhere.  I just spotted one on True Blood's Facebook page too!

Here are my top Beauty Au Natural moments for 2010!

  1. In April 2010, I finally attended a Bare Escentuals Getaway event.  I had watched friends online attend these since I joined online forums in 2003 and finally this year I could afford to go! This was momentous for me, not just because of Bare Escentuals and meeting all my fabulous friends in person but it really signified how far I had come in my life.  I flew on a plane for the first time as an adult, I went to the west coast for the first time ever, I drank mimosas with Leslie Blodgett and the "Angels" who attended the event on the patio of the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco Presidential Suite!
    Not only was this event a completely amazing trip to San Francisco but it fell on my birthday weekend and what a fabulous way to turn 33! I blogged all about this event and posted about it on Twitter.  This is how @Leslie_BE and I started tweeting back and forth and she read my blog! 
  2. I was personally invited by Leslie Blodgett to meet her and Alison from BE for lunch in NYC along with a select group of fellow BE customers who won the chance to attend.  We had lunch at Carmines and then visited the Bare Escentuals Time Square boutique which feels like my home away from home in NYC now.  I love you guys! I also made some fantastic friends who I have kept in touch with.
  3. I got a shout out from @BareEscentuals on Twitter with a #FF which is Follow Fridays, a suggestion to follow that person on twitter that is posted on Friday. 
  4. My blog gained popularity and now has a facebook fan page because friends wanted me to post updates and reminders and facebook.  I thought it was easier to keep it all in one place and I am not sure my guys friends from high school really want to read about the latest BE kit LOL   Today, I am so proud to say that I have 83 public followers on blogger and 338 fans on facebook.
  5. 100% Pure was so excited that I blogged about their products that they sent me free mascaras to review! 
  6. Lather commented on my Top Choice for All Natural Body Scrub where I talked about their awesome Bamboo Lemongrass Foaming Body Scrub. They also added me to their list of Beauty Bloggers on their Twitter page.
  7. LUSH thanked me for doing a great review of some of their products and sent me some new product info to share in my blog. 
  8. Badger thanked me for reviewing their products and posted the link to my review on their facebook page. 
  9. Attending multiple BE Events and having people come up to me to meet me &/or take a picture with me.  Still feels kind of weird but it is also a lot of fun.  Best reaction to this was when it happened during my makeunder with Bravon and he told me I was a celebrity!
  10. After a little persuasion from various BE friends, I attended the BE Events in NYC and Smith Haven NY in October 2010.  I brought my mom to her first BE events and we had the most fabulous time.  We spent time with my BE friends, we got makeunders, we shopped out hearts out and felt beautiful.  
  11. On October 13, 2010, I got a makeunder with Bravon Pascua at the Smith Haven event.  This needed it's own entry here because it was amazing.  I learned so much and just adore Bravon.  I blogged all about it and shared his BE wisdom with all my readers. (OMG I just googled Bravon's name and my blog entry is one of the top search results!)
  12. I planned 2 of my own mini-BE events in NYC and Albany NY which were a lot of fun and well attended.   The NYC event was in August and the Albany event was in November.  Nothing will ever beat spending time with and meeting the wonderful friends I have made through Bare Escentuals and my blog!

  13. On November 9, 2010, Leslie Blodgett called me personally to tell me that she was going to use my High Shine tube technique, "Shake Tap & Swirl" on the air on QVC the following weekend.  She also asked me to send her other tips for the Perfect Gift Collection which was going to be the TSV when she was on the air so I emailed her my ideas. She not only used my High Shine tube technique on the air on QVC during 4 presentations but she gave me a personal shout out 3 times! "Heather from NY"  All 3 recordings are still on my DVR at home in high def.  My BF is transferring them onto our computers for me so we can finally clear the DVR LOL
