I’ve tried to write this post a million and one times, but no words can capture how truly wonderful it was to meet this Canadian babe – You can just see it on my face! What you can’t see are the photos I’ve buried in the trash – aka the ones in which I’m guffawing in the background with uncontrollable delight. If you ask my sister, she’ll let you know I blanked on everything I wanted to say the moment Estee greeted me “hello”. I’ll admit it, guys, I’m a lame-o. I’d probably fangirl over the city mayor if I had the chance to (and by probably, I mean I already have…). In my defense, his last name sounds like the word ‘burger’… but I digest – I mean, digress.
If you don’t know who she is, Estée is a beauty/lifestyle YouTuber and blogger. She recently released her lifestyle book ‘Bloom’ and was back in her hometown of Waterloo 2 weeks ago to meet up with us viewers for a book singing. So exciting!
I’ve been watching her since my high school days so she has a special place in my heart; it’s her genuine, down to earth persona I’ve always been drawn to from the start. I was grinning so hard my cheeks started to hurt during those few minutes on stage. Palms sweating, hands gripped tight against the book, I felt like the floor fell out from under me when one of the women told me to head onstage. I remember the only thing running through my head was “BUT I’M NOT READY!!!” as I clumsily pushed one leg past the other up the small, black stairs.
Turns out she is exactly how she is in her videos – super sweet and absolutely flawless. I was genuinely confused as to how one person can look so amazing in a crowd of well-dressed youngsters but she managed to do it!
Although I haven’t finished the book yet (I started last night and was halfway down by the time I closed my eyes!) I’m already in love. Super excited to write a review about it and share all the feels with you guys. Ahhh!
Has anyone else picked up Bloom? Which YouTubers would you love to meet? I’d love to know!
