The recent Glamour Affair event in Sydney was absolutely amazing!
What is Glamour Affair? I hear you ask! Glamour Affair was founded by Erin from 3B's blog (Baby, Beauty & Beyond) and writer/youtuber Melissa from Melissa Bubbles: Beauty, Fashion & Life.

Glamour Affair organises blogger exclusive events that bring brands and PRs together in a casual environment perfect for socialising, and Glamour Affair definitely achieved these aims at their recent Sydney event.
The event was held at Beachside Dojo upstairs in Daniel San restaurant at Sydney's iconic Manly Beach. You couldn't ask for a more picturesque location.

After some initial socialising with the 30 bloggers/vloggers present we were ushered to tables laden with goodie bags to listen to the brand presentations.
Have you ever seen more goodie bags than this in one location!!!!! We all walked away with 5 goodie bags each from the many generous brand sponsors! Warning: Loads of new product reviews coming up over the next few months!

Here's a photo of the combined contents of all the goodie bags I received! It was quite hard fitting it all into the one photo! I think I will be reviewing products from this photo for months! So much trialing of products and reviewing to be done!!! Love it!

The first presentation was by celebrity makeup artist Shella Martin. Shella emphasised the importance of skincare, especially exfoliation and moisturising, for flawless makeup application. She demonstrated how Nuxe, Bioderma & Uriage derma-skincare products are the perfect complement to her makeup kit. Keep an eye out on my blog over the coming weeks for a more detailed post regarding some of these products!

Sammy from Boe Beauty & Boe Professional, together with gorgeous Jordy Cannon, informed us about Boe Beauty and Boe Professional. Boe Beauty is an affordable budget cosmetics brand exclusive to Big W. They do not test on animals but maintain affordable pricing of $2 an item! Boe have also recently released their Boe Professional range of products. The products in this Professional range start from $4.95 upwards. A detailed review of Boe products to follow! Spoiler alert: I can't believe how good these products are for such a cheap price!!!!
Unfortunately my photo of Sammy and Jordy chopped their heads off! How did I do that??? So I have used a photo taken by Gery from Margarita Lipstick Beauty and Lifestyle Blog. Gery has also written a review of this event. You can check it out here.

Gine & Aisling, the lovely ladies from Lush, next gave us the most deliciously scented demonstration of how to make mermaid water! They then helped relax us all by providing us with Lush massage bars and having us pair up to give the person next to us a totally relaxing and blissfully scented arm massage.
We also got to sample the Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub and Lush R & B Hair Moisturiser. Once again, keep an eye on my blog over the next couple of weeks for a more detailed review of these Lush products plus a couple of other Lush products we received in our Glamour Affair goodie bags!

Yong Li then introduced the premium Enbacci skin care brand and products to us, wearing an eye-catching Louis Vuitton dress. Unfortunately I was too busy admiring her outfit and listening to her spiel to take a photo!
In conclusion, as you can see from the above, the Glamour Affair Sydney event was absolutely amazing! I want to say a massive thank you to Melissa and Erin from Glamour Affair for all the hard work they put into making this event the success it was and for inviting me along to attend!
To all the bloggers and vloggers pictured below who attended this event, I loved meeting you! You were all so gorgeous and lovely and welcoming. I wish I could have chatted to more of you but hopefully we will bump into each other sooner rather than later at another event! Fingers crossed!
