Life throws you curve balls sometimes. Sometimes you get rear ended, sometimes significant others dip out of your life for unexpected reasons, and sometimes you get photobombed by Demi Lovato in a banana costume– variability is a part of life. I feel like the term “curve ball” typically has a negative connotation, but in this sense, it was a surprise of the most inspiring {and random} type. My friends and I were invited to attend the Demi World Tour concert at The Amway Arena last Monday, and not only that– we were given the opportunity to meet her, as well. Normally, I’m not the concert-going type; I like personal space, and I’m very rarely impressed with live performances. Demi is- to put it in plain English– phenomenal. From her efforts in Africa to her passion for promoting Eating Disorder Awareness to her awe-inspiring vocals, I’m enamored with her, and I couldn’t have asked for a better evening with my girlfriends.

 

In order to avoid a disorganized array of worthwhile coverage, I couldn’t think of a better way to categorize my night than with the 8 major life lessons I learned from my time with Demi and The Radiant Collection.

 

 

Since Demi teamed up with The Radiant Collection for the second time to help inspire young women to wear what they want, whenever they want, and with the utmost confidence, I couldn’t arrive at The Amway in anything less than fabulous. This outfit represents my sense of style to the T. It’s feminine, flirty, yet conservative, and that’s how 99% of my friends and family would describe my fashion sense. Winning.

Tampax even promoted my outfit, as well as all of our other tweets with the hashtag #BeRadiant, on their large TV screen. I almost had a heart att-a-a-a-a-a-ack. Too cool!

As I briefly mentioned before, Demi teamed up with The Radiant Collection, the official tour sponsor, for the second time to give young women style inspiration and fashion tips. Through their rock star collaboration, attendees were given an opportunity to shop in The Radiant Demi-Inspired Closet, featuring Demi’s famous red VMA dress, showcase their stellar senses of style by snapping pictures in the Selfie Station, pose in the Radiant Style Booth, and receive free Radiant samples, coupons, and information. We literally could’ve spent all year playing around in their displays. Photographic evidence below.

 

My mama has always told me that confidence radiates both inner and outer beauty, and ain’t that the truth? Demi, an established advocate for Eating Disorder Awareness and the promotion of healthy lifestyles, openly discusses her battle with body image issues and her long road to recovery, and she has since become, in my opinion, the definition of walking radiance. She is confident, she is gorgeous, and she is such an amazing role model for young women. She also looks great as a cardboard cut-out.

Tampax has always been my favorite in feminine products, but when you’re surrounded by thousands of colorful sample boxes provided in the Be Radiant Style Booth, your affinity for their products only grows stronger. Plus, along with the samples came free-flowing information and tonssssof coupons, so I’ll be saving mad cash for months.

Hands down, my favorite display at the Demi World Tour, aside from the concert itself of course, was their Radiant Demi-Inspired Closet, which featured a collection of Demi’s favorite outfits, as well as her downright stunning red VMA gown. Literally, I was in fashion blogger heaven.

Seriously, though… nobody looks stupid when they’re having fun, and the Radiant Style Booth was the perfect place to do it. My friends and I had an absolute ball joking around, taking adorable bff pics, and showcasing our inner divas in this booth.

I knew beforehand that we’d get to meet Demi, but I had no idea she’d be photobombing my friends and me in — yes— a banana costume. When we first arrived at The Amway, we were surreptitiously escorted to “test out” the photo booth. Notice the difference in background? Ya, well… Demi was waiting behind the curtain, ready for the hilarity to ensue.

We also got to take a normal picture with her, too. Honestly, I can’t decide which one I like better. She goes down as one of the coolest people I’ve ever met, and I can’t encourage y’all enough to enter the Be Radiant Sweepstakes (details here) for a chance to meet her, too, as well as experience VIP access at one of her upcoming shows. Literally, she rocks… both musically and personally. Lovatic for life!

To give everyone the chance to join the fun on tour, and maybe even spot themselves in one of these hilarious photo booth videos like me, fans can enter the Be Radiant Sweepstakes from September 10th through October 10th. The Be Radiant Sweepstakes offers fans the chance to win a VIP experience to attend Demi’s Brooklyn show in style, receiving a two-night trip to New York for one lucky winner and three friends, limo service, four front-row concert tickets, a meet-and-greet with Demi, and a year supply of Tampax Radiant and Always Radiant Infinity. Can I go again?!

 

The only word that comes to mind when reminiscing about the Demi World Tour is… phenomenal. My besties and I were literally jamming out h.a.r.d.c.o.r.e. to MKTO, Christina Perry, and Becky G, but when Demi hit the stage, we transitioned into full-blown fan girl mode. I’m in my mid-20s, and this was the best concert I’ve been to in a looong time. We danced to Heart Attack, cried at Nightingale, and belted our hearts out to Let It Go. Not only is she a great performer, but her passion for inspiring her audience through sharing personal trials and tribulations, in addition to her philanthropic efforts in Africa, is truly palpable. For me, music is all about how you make your listeners feel; gifted performers have the ability to infiltrate the hearts and souls of others and evoke emotion. Demi Lovato does that effortlessly.

It took me a long time to realize that confidence comes from how I feel and not from what others think or say about me. I always feel my best, wearing what I want. That’s why I’m excited to team up with The Radiant Collection again to encourage young women to love who they are and feel confident to express themselves all month long.”- Demi Lovato

Amen, lady. You rock, and I’m forever a fan. From the bottom of my heart, thank you to The Radiant Collection for providing me with the opportunity of a lifetime and reaffirming the power of passion in my life. I’m more devoted than ever to continue shedding light on the personal maelstrom invoked by body dysmorphia, as well as continue inspiring change through Junior League in my capacity as a MAGIC (Mentoring Adolescent Girls to Inspire Change) mentor. If you’re suffering, tell someone; help is available, and you already have more support than you’ll ever know.
So what are you waiting for?! Post your #BeRadiant selfies now!
