Beauty Expo Melbourne 2017- Round Up

Last weekend (March 25th & 26th) I attended Beauty Expo Melbourne, this is it’s first year under that title, it was formally called Salon Melbourne.

I attended as media to watch some of the sessions on offer in the different Hubs, learn about some new and exciting brands (and network with a few) and visit some old favourites.

This will be a quick round up of Beauty Expo Melbourne, but I will explore some of the brands further in separate posts in coming weeks, but more on that a little later.

After watching a couple of the Makeup sessions at the Makeup Hub, I walked around the exhibition floor a little more. During this time I networked with a few of the brand owners.

Day 2- Beauty Expo Melbourne

On the second day of the Expo I didn’t stay as long because I had already visited most of the booths on the first day. I did however stay for a couple of the sessions at the Makeup Hub once again.

After I watched Michael Huxley at the Makeup Hub, it was time for Building Your Bridal Business with Rae Morris. I am not a makeup artist, let alone a wedding MUA, but it was an interesting session and I got some great makeup application tips from it.

I was excited to meet Rae at her booth afterwards and get my copy of her Makeup Masterclass book signed and a photo with her.

Over all I enjoyed my time at Beauty Expo Melbourne 2017! I would love to attend again next year.

Some of the brands that interested me and will be featured over the next few weeks: Pure Nut, Divine skincare, SNS Nails, Cuccio Pro and Young Nails (SlickPour)




*Beauty Expo Melbourne is a Trade only event and is not open to the general public, I attended as Media.

My Favourite Christmas Movies

I love Christmas movies and while they put some great ones on TV, they often replay the same ones. There are also too many commercial breaks!

If you have finished all your Christmas shopping and wrapping your gifts, why not put your feet up before the Christmas day prep. begins and have a movie marathon.

My favourite Christmas Movies

chistmas moviesElf, $6.98 at JB Hi-Fi | The Search for Santa Paws | Love Actually, $12.98 from JB Hi-Fi | Disney’s A Christmas Carol (animated) | Miracle on 34th Street (1947 & 1994 movies), 2 DVDs for $12.98 from JB Hi-fi

If you don’t want to buy Christmas movies on DVD, Netflix also have many great ones also!

Netflix Christmas movies
