In my preparation for The Australian Beauty Blogger Weekend (ABBW) the weekend just gone, I booked in a few “must/absolutely/will die if they see me in this state” beauty appointments. A spray tan and an eyebrow shape of course – the two quickest ways to looking polished and ready for any big event where you will be photographed a lot. A lady of beauty can’t be surrounded by 84 other beauty bloggers looking like a ghost with bushy brows now can she?!
I made a trip to Lush Spray Tanning & Beauty at Albion after a few recommendations (my Mum has been there and so has Bec at Perfectly Smooth).
I decided to go with the Velocity Tan by Vani-T (rapid tan) as I wanted to be able to wash it off that night, I was catching an early flight the next day to Sydney and I didn’t want to stink the other passengers out. My other reason was that I wanted a natural looking tan (look for formulas that have a green base) that was going to make me look like I just stepped off the beach in the Maldives.
Velocity Tan by Vani-T is the world’s first RAPID Tan with Certified Organic DHA & Quad Bronzing Technology. Vani-T Liquid Sun’s internationally renowned luscious natural and organic based formula is now available to wash and wear in as little as 1 hour (1 hour – light tan, 2 hours – medium tan, 3 – 4 hours – dark tan). Wash off after the desired development time and the colour keeps developing. No waiting for hours for your tan to develop, tan remnants on your sheets, or an excuse for not going to the gym!
So my excitement pants are well and truly on, some might say I’m getting a camel’s toe from them being on so high. Ewwww. I know I know. Sorry to make you vom in your mouth a lil.
So why the excitement wedgie (front and back) you ask? Well my pretties, I Miss Hip & Haute am off to IMATS in Sydney as part of the BIGGEST AND BESTEST BEAUTY BLOGGER WEEKEND IN THE WORLD (well Australia at least) titled The ABBW (Australian Beauty Blogger Weekend).
If you are a beauty blogger, I’m pretty sure you would already know about this weekend, but if you’re not familiar go check out www.theabbw.com to see what all the fuss is about.
In a nutshell, The ABBW is:
The Australian Beauty Bloggers Weekend (ABBW) is a first of its kind event for Australian beauty bloggers. Bringing together Australian beauty bloggers from around the country, the ABBW is a two day event that will include the International Make-Up Artists Trade Show (IMATS), social events and much more.
The ABBW is a unique opportunity for bloggers to meet, greet, network and partake in some fantastic events. It’s also an exceptional opportunity for companies to promote and publicise their products to a dedicated and passionate group of bloggers, all of whom are singularly united in their aim to look stunning at all times.
So this weekend (EEEEEEE only 3 more sleeps) I will be jetting off to Sydney to partake, and boy will it be the most epic weekend ever. Part of the ABBW weekend is a visit to the International Make-Up Artists Trade Show (IMATS) and there has been a tag floating around about IMATS. I was tagged by the lovely Dana from Blushfully.
So here are the questions!
