It’s Monday morning so I thought I’d come up with a light and easy post today…

Many thanks to the generous sponsors at ABBW 2011.

A girl-friend (not a beauty blogger) suggested that I sell some products to make money.  And I repelled in horror at this suggestion.  Beauty bloggers should know that you NEVER EVER sell anything a brand gives you for review.  I wouldn’t dream of it.  And I would also like to point out that I wouldn’t even know how to do it.  I am clearly old-fashioned as I never go on ebay and I rarely go online shopping.  Obviously, I cannot use everything there and that is why I will be giving love packages to friends, in exchange for reviews for the blog.  (Speaking of which, I have one coming up soon…)

And these are my purchases in Sydney…


At IMATS, I bought Ben Nye Coral Red Blusher ($10), 2 x OCC Lip Tars (2 x $14), Beauty Pod Airbrush FX Sponge ($10) and a Royal & Langnickel Bent Eyeliner Brush ($4).  Total spend at $52.

As mentioned in my ABBW post, I had dodgy sushi and diarrhoea was spurting out of me so my Husband was thoughtful and bought me Gastro-Stop.  While I was at ABBW enjoying myself, the Husband wandered around Sydney on his lonesome and bought me all the Hello Kitty cutesy goodies – UNO cards, make-up bag, keyring and stickers.  As you all know from my haul on Wednesday, I love Hello Kitty!  And I love my Husband!!

I also sneaked in a pair of pale pink Wittner shoes – perfect for Summer.

We stayed on in Sydney another night after ABBW, but the next morning I woke up feeling like I had the biggest hangover in town, hence the ibuprofen to get rid of the headache.  Anyway, we met other beauty bloggers who stayed on another night as well – Jeneara, Celeste and Stacey.  And we were all going to the same place – Adriano Zumbo in Balmain – so we jumped on a water taxi together.

And after they left, Hubby and I enjoyed eating our way around Sydney whilst meeting friends along the way.  Did I tell you I lived in Sydney for 6 months before moving to Melbourne?  I love Sydney!!!

Enjoy the rest of your week and I’ll speak to you all tomorrow.
