NYC for GenBeauty 2017

If you read my previous post, by now you know that I'm catching up on old blog posts I never got around to writing.

Next up on the list is NYC for GenBeauty 2017. GenBeauty was also in September (about two weeks after MIA Festival). This post is going to be shorter and less detailed than my previous GenBeauty post because I took less pictures and didn't take the pictures of the products from my goodie bag (sorry). This was my second year going to the event and I had  high expectations after 2016's event. I'm not quite sure what it was but for some reason I didn't enjoy it as much as the year before. All that aside- I went with my girl and it was her birthday weekend so we had a blast.

This last event was a little different from 2016's. Instead of 2 goodie bags (one each day),  they only gave 1 bag during check in on Day 1. The popular vendor booths were extremely crowded and making a line to redeem your free product took over an hour and a half. Actually, I think wemade one line for 2 hours! After that we were pretty much over the waiting and decided to walk around, take pictures and get what we could from the less crowded booths.

Later that night we went to Vandal for my friend's birthday dinner. The food was good and the restaurant was perfect for photos. Every room had a different theme and art by well known artists.

A few more pictures from the trip, some of these I've already posted on IG

And now for the best part.. The food:

Milk Cereal Soft Serve from Milk Bar
made with milk, cornflakes, brown sugar and a pinch of salt.
