ORIGINALLY POSTED APRIL 2014:
I wanted to do a post on my first visit to IMATS (International Make-Up Artist Trade Show), and the awesome time I had in New York! I had been to NYC before, but only for short periods of time and had never really had much time to explore. My boyfriend, Bryan, went with me, and we had a couple of days to tour the city before the show. The first thing I learned while exploring New York…WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES!!! I thought the ones I wore on my first day walking around were comfy, but turns out they were a big mistake since I got blisters all over my feet within a few hours! Oh well! I certainly wasn’t going to let that ruin my trip, so I just had to toughen up! All the fun we had walking around was worth it. On our first day there we rode the subway to Brooklyn, and had pizza at the famous and very delicious Grimaldi’s. Afterwards we walked back over the Brooklyn Bridge, and enjoyed the amazing city views. That evening we had pizza again, but this time it was chocolate pizza (yum) at Max Brenner’s!! Amazing day!
