Hey everyone! This weeks theme is Waiting.
I did quite a bit of waiting this weekend. On Sunday I went to the Urban Decay Birthday Bash at Metrotown in Vancouver, Canada. They were having a four day event to celebrate the one year anniversary of their store opening. Each day, the first 100 customers in line would receive a gift card loaded with a mystery amount of up to $500 value. So of course, I had to go early to make sure I could get in on that!
I really wasn’t sure what to expect with how busy it would be and how early to go. The mall didn’t open until 11 am that day, so I went to line up for 8 am. I definitely didn’t want to go earlier than that, I am not a morning person. When my sister-in-law and I arrived, there were about 12 people who had arrived before us. I can’t even imagine what time they arrived. We had brought folding chars to sit on while we waited, but a security guard told us we were “not allowed to sit” while we waited. Not only could we not sit on our chairs, you weren’t even allowed to sit on the floor, which is totally ridiculous. Anyways, we got over it and the wait of 3 hours didn’t even feel like it took that long.
In the end I didn’t end up winning a huge gift card, but I did get $10 off my purchase and a free full-sized eyeshadow, just for lining up early.
If you want to know more about this Urban Decay Birthday Bash event, what other freebies I got and what I purchased, stay tuned because I will be writing a full post on it in the next week.
