Last Saturday, October 26th, was the Adelaide Beauty Bloggers annual Convention. I missed out on being able to buy my ticket, but luckily, I was able to win one through a competition they ran.
So I got up early that morning, did my hair and makeup and headed down there. I will admit that I was shitting my pants nervous haha! I'd never been to an event like this before and I'm shy in general. But I trundled on!
We were greeted by a banner to welcome us/help us find where we needed to be.
After Guinot had finished, and we'd had a quick morning tea, we sat back down for a talk from Jaala from Love Organic Beauty. LOB are the Australian stockists of French Makeup brand Couleur Caramel, who I have briefly dabbled with in the makeup course I did, so I was keen to find out more. Jaala talked to us about sustainability and keeping makeup as natural and safe as possible. It was a very informative talk, and it opened my eyes to how much we actually put on our faces! She'd also bought some of CC's makeup to play with, and their spring collection for next year to drool over!
After the games, we were treated to a delicious vegan lunch from Adelaide based Soda Bar, Two Bit Villians. They made us tasty rolls and to go with them, we were lucky enough to get to try some of their famous homemade sodas, and they customised them for us!
After lunch, we sat back down to listen to Davroe Hair Wellness. What excites me the most about Davroe is that they are made and owned here in South Australia. They are all vegan and cruelty free, and all the products are biodegradable, and they don't build up in your hair! They showed us some of their styling products and I'm pretty sure we all fell in love with the Fibrous texture product! It smelt soooooooo good!
After Davroe, and a quick coffee break, we sat down to listen to Paul, who is a local Barrister about how to avoid being sued as a blogger. Absolutely valuable knowledge, and I was really looking forward to his talk. He answered all our questions and gave us some very good advice.
I will be posting everything on the blog eventually, I'm too busy testing it all right now!
I had such a great time, and met some really lovely people. Thanks so much to all the people that made the day happen.
Until Next Time,
