Melbourne Beauty Blogger Event – Saturday Oct 2nd 2010!

20 girls. 1 venue. Make up. Beauty. Spa treatments. Sweets. I’ll let you picture that for a moment.

Well guys, I don’t have to picture it because I lived it over the weekend! If you follow me on Twitter you would have noticed the non-stop excitement I had over the Melbourne Beauty Blogger Event which was held last Saturday. The event, organised by the amazing Valerie from, is designed to gather Melbourne’s beauty bloggers to meet and mingle in ‘real life’ instead of just our usual online twittering and blog commenting. I was really grateful to be invited. Thank you so much Val!

MBBE was held at Oxygen Skin Centre in Docklands, where in between mingling, offered us relaxing hand massages or crystal mud foot baths! Saturday was also my first day back to real food after my Urban Remedy juice cleanse so the Nudie Coconut Waters and the goodies from EARL Canteen tasted even more delicious. Ahh, the macaroons were simply to die for! Being a sort-of newbie to this whole blogging thing, I was totally in awe of meeting some of Australia’s best beauty bloggers. It was wonderful experience to share thoughts and ideas with other like-minded make up obsessed people! I had the most amazing time 🙂

Pictures say a 1000 words so here we go…

How cool are the top hat lights?!
We had iPad mug shots taken, which I thought was such a fun idea!

The theme of the event was pink! My fav colour 🙂 Check out the pink nails gang! That’s me at the bottom, wearing OPI’s Second Honeymoon.

The goodies from EARL Canteen. Yum yum!

Sandi from Onya Magazine sharing some inspiring words about her career journey so far and tips on how to approach editors.

Lookie lookie at all the loot we got! SIX goodie bags each guys, SIX!!!

Group shot of all the glam beauty blogging girlies!

The goodie bags contained over $2000 worth of products! Wow right?! Will I impose a beauty shopping ban? Probably not lol but I’m looking forward to trying all the products out. I foresee many, many, many product reviews coming up!

I had the most FANTABULOUS day. Sooo amazing to meet all you lovely bloggers out there. Cannot wait to catch up again soon!
