Here it is:

Generation Beauty Toronto 2017 – The Goody Bag

I found out from reading some other blogs that one booth I know for certain was untruthful with us. We were there on day 1 and asked what was going on, and they said they just gave out their items. Day 2 I came back with my other friend (early) and asked what they had for sale and the same lady said they had “oh skincare and sprays” well another blogger purchased a lot of things they  don’t sell here in my country, and they were giving away full eye shadows if you sat for a sprinkle of highlighter! I’m angry. And hurt. Was I too much trouble? I reached out to the coordinator I was dealing with, but I don’t know if I should let the company know, too. Where is the line?

There was another company that day who, when my friend and I rolled up to the empty booth, the four workers grabbed my wheelchair pusher and left me sitting there. They thoroughly ignored me for a good three minutes. It felt like longer, but giving someone the stink eye for two full minutes should render a reaction.

I do understand mistakes happen. There could be a simple explanation. I can’t seem to come up with one. Especially since this blogger had her loot arranged by day and it was close to the end of day 2 that she went. I don’t want to go in ranting either, my style is a quick explanation with how it makes me feel, and why this was a problematic interaction.

What would you do?

Should I leave it with the coordinator or say something? Are the situations different?


And goddamn, if another person puts their hands on their knees to squat down and talk to me all cutesy, I may not be able to contain myself. 😨

I should be sleeping.
