I got an email from someone the other day. It was from Nikki, and she invited all Surabaya beauty bloggers to join the The Grand Palace 1st Birthday Celebration at Grand City Mall, Surabaya. I was super duper excited to read that email! Wow that was my very first official invitation as a beauty blogger >.< Thank You Nikki for inviting us!
The Grand Palace is a department store, just like Sogo or Metro I think, and they provide so many high-end brands there, from head to toe, national and international products. For the beauty section there are Kose, Shiseido, Frais Monde, Revlon, Max Factor, etc. The famous The History Of Woo skincare line from Korea also has a tenant there, wow~
So here is the invitation that I got :
And the rundown…
I must admit that I came up pretty late, because of doing the makeup and stuffs >.< When I came by, the first fashion show was almost ended. But the time I spent doing my makeup was really worth it la, even though I was a little nervous because everyone was putting a very simple makeup! Gee \(>o<”\) (/”>o<)/ But they said that I was cute and looked grown up, qiqiqi *get slapped
Here's a group photo of Surabaya Beauty Bloggers anyway ♥

Here’s my FOTD by the way. Too bad I didn’t take any single picture of my OOTD, and all these FOTD pictures were taken in my house since I had no courage to camwhore at public gee ._.
Wonder why my skin looks much better than the last time it does? Thanks to the bb cream and Innisfree Green Tea Sleeping Pack, the review is coming soon! \(>ᴗ<)/

Stupid smile ever! LOL I look so ugly here, weird face ughh >-<
The celebration really was exciting and great. There were makeup demonstrations, fashion shows, talkshow, also band and cosplay competitions too. I’m not interested much in fashion shows, but well the models are cool! Beside, the outfits they’re bringing are great too eh; from High Couture Fashions to Casual and Sportswear. Some sneak peek of the fashion shows:
Revlon and Kose were doing some makeup demos too, and Frais Monde was holding a talkshow with a doctor from Yemima Beauty Center. Unfortunately I watched only the Kose demo and Frais Monde talkshow that I was picked not so long after the Revlon demo started! Aww ._.
The Kose makeup demo is featuring this pretty woman, meet Ms.Ira please. Oh and you guys know, Kose is a Japanese brand for makeup and skincare products. My mom and my grandma use their skincare product as well, and ssst, their products also helped me a lot in recovering my skin. On the other post, coming soon okay! Back to the demo; the theme of the day was “Glamour”, which can be used anytime and anywhere, also is friendly for day or night look. The total look was all using the Kose’s latest series, Cosmenience. Those pretty color…I want them all!!!
The makeup artist applying the mascara for Ms.Ira. Well I was actually focusing on the eye makeup LOL
After the Kose demo, we decided to take a little walk around. The Grand Palace surely was giving some nice discounts for beauty products and the other stuffs as well, but I’m saving for mega online shopping so yeah….next time maybe? *cries
Ce Yennyca, Ce Shasha, Ce Hana and Lala went home very soon after, so there were only me, Ce Pricillia and Ce Shelvi left. LOL they’re all big sisters for me\(>ᴗ<)-c< ˟_˟) We were going back to the atrium to attend a talkshow with Frais Monde and Dr.Eva Liang from Yemima Beauty Center as the representative from Frais Monde. (Dr.Eva is very beautiful, tbh!)
The topic was about pregnancy and stretch mark problem, slimming programs, to sensitive skin problem. LOL I was on the right show! She was very informative too about Frais Monde products that were meant for teenager and sensitive skin. After some few questions from the MC for Dr.Eva, he asked if the audiences might have any questions for the doctor.
And there, I asked a question, and received this product as well >.< Thank You Frais Monde and Yemima Beauty Center, also Grand City for the talkshow! *bow down* this product was for sensitive skin aaaand how lucky I was to get that at the talkshow! This product worth $25 anyway, ssssst!
By the way I have reviewed this product here, and will update it in a month after the result is really visible ♥
So once again I really wanted to thank Nikki, for inviting me, and Grand City, as well to Frais Monde, Kose and the other brands that were supporting this event, much thank you because I really had a great time! Thank you for the event and for this goodie bag, here’s a sneak peek of what’s inside the bag *drum rolls
