It was twenty degrees outside on  a dark night in New York City.
A line formed outside of a virtually unmarked building.
What was going on?


 (They stamped our hands.  It looks like "icky" more than "lucky" but in hindsight, 
that's actually appropriate!
 We were freezing our butts off and absolutely starving!)

After waiting for a REALLY long time, with restlessness increasing around us on line, we finally got in.
And it was AMAZING.
Clothes everywhere.  Jewelry to the ceiling.  Rich people buying stuff all around us!

 Honestly, the sight of all those gorgeous, high-end, beautiful clothes was a little too much for my poor heart to bear.
But even though we couldn't buy it, we could touch it!
And believe me, they all felt goooood.

 (How gorgeous are these colors?!
Some vintage brand.

We quickly found a mini pink carpet, and the stars began to file down the line.

First, Susan Lucci! 

Then, Abigail Breslin!
(Was she always this blonde?!) 

Since we had a DSLR, the other photographers kind of made way for us, and we started to get some pretty close pictures.

Yay for impersonating real paparazzi?

Stephanie March!
(And unnamed lady below)

(Do any of you know these people above and below?  
We just took pictures for good measure. Haha)


(All the make-up artists in the Maybelline makeover section FREAKED.)

I'd say Chels and Coco are pretty cunning.
We found the best spot to stay, and basically made it our home for almost an hour.
The best place: next to the waiter's exit from the kitchen!
First dibs on free food.  Boo-yah.

Fried chicken in pastry shells served with Rum and Coke in a mini coke bottle.
(Yes, a bottle!  A bunch of them shattered on the floor a bunch of times.
I know, people just go so crazy for free food.  Unlike us.  Wink.)

Smoked salmon and wasabi caviar on rye toast.  
Cut in the shape of a little pig!
With a black sesame seed for an eye!
How genius is this? 

Mmm.  Freakin' mini grilled cheese sandwiches.
(Notice how the bread was not just a square, it looked like a real slice of bread!
But miniature!)  

Not completely sure what the heck this is.  Vegetable lasagna served on a basil leaf, maybe?
If it was, Coco was definitely happy after this picture.
The last layer on the lasagna was crunchy 
(probably fried. our health teachers would not be happy.)
and delicious!
We definitely took seconds of it.

Meatball with a swirl of spaghetti and a drop of sauce on top!
(Behind the scenes: Coco dropped her meatball on the camera while taking this picture.
Good times!)

Cucumber cup with lobster and something green on top!

The lovely people at the Maybelline station gave us absolutely free, absolutely wonderful
They matched our colors (Fit Me 230 for Chels)
and then let us choose one more thing to make over.

We did lips and skin! 

After we got fancy, we stumbled upon DRINKS AND DESSERT!

Free soda!
There was water, and Sprite, and Diet Coke, but we got to the second floor pretty late
(we spent a looong time outside of the waiters' entrance)
so this was all we could find, drink-wise (that wasn't alcohol!)

Cotton candy on a stick!

 Apple crumb something and a mini milkshake (with a mini mini cookie on the rim)!
The crumb was so good - Coco had, like, 10 of them.
And the milkshake was so good, Chels took home the glass it came in. 


 Mini ice cream sandwich on a stick!
