The ABBW: A quick overview

So, currently I am sitting on my living room floor feeling slightly overwhelmed after taking photos of all my goodies and cataloguing business cards given to me by the lovely bloggers I met at the Australian Beauty Bloggers Weekend. I feel like I now have enough material to write about for several years and I have no idea where to start!
Firstly, a huge thank you to the lovely Jacie and Kimmi from You've Got Nail and The Plastic Diaries for organising the whole weekend. It was absolutely amazing and you ladies deserve all the credit :)
Being my very first blogging event, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. However all the bloggers at the event made me feel extremely welcome and I am looking forward to meeting up with some of them again soon.

This weekend was also my very first trip to the International Make-Up Artist Trade Show! It was brilliant to have so many different brands in the one place and be able to speak with representatives about their products.

Goodness knows I never expected to have to lug this many bags home!

Also thank you to the wonderful sponsors of the ABBW who were so very generous and I just don't know where to start with all of these lovely goodies! 
But as this is a nail polish blog, here is a sneak peek of all the polishes that came home with me.

Excepting the Illamasqua polishes which I purchased from IMATS, these were all provided by the sponsors of the event.
Did anyone else make it to IMATS on the weekend? I'd love to know your thoughts!

Hi Julia! I was at ABBW too, but I don't think we ever got a chance to meet! I had a ball at IMATS, wished it was a bit bigger, but then again my expectations were set against the LA version which isn't probably that fair. Nice to meet you online :)

Hey Celina, I do think that I saw you wandering around, but I was feeling a shy.... I will definitely come and say hi if we are both lucky enough to go again next year :)

That haul looks great! I wish I was there but I couldn't be in two places at once. *sigh*

I would have loved to have met you Vita :) Maybe next year? I hope you had a good time in Queensland!!
