Olympia Beauty Show





How amazing are these.. I didn't get a chance to picture the Essie stand and didn't purchase any nail polishes from them (as I have over 100 already) but wish I had now!

  

  
These are too adorable! I ended up picking the Ladybird and the Dragonfly ones. I wish I'd got the Bumblebees too now *obsessed*. I heard they'll be bringing out some of these babies with paw print designs at the start of 2012.. shhh. 












Can we all see Richard Ward at the end? (squeals) 

Excuse all the photos but with my press badge I thought it was only right to walk around with my Canon 600D looking like the proper 'press'. I even got approached by one guy asking me to take photos of his products for him, in return for 'good business'. Obviously I refused and ran the hell away from the crazy man! I was quite proud of my Press badge so ended up keeping the badge on until I reached Truro station as I couldn't bare to take it off. It's the first real event I've been to so I definitely strutted my stuff.

I was going to post a photo of all the freebies I was given, and all the things I had bought but I think I'll save that for some other time. I did however pick up SO many products which will keep my reviewing 'agenda' busy for a few months/years! As you can see there were so many great companies at the show which I took advantage of, I just couldn't believe the queues at OPI. Who knew OPI were so famous?! ;)

After having a good old look around I headed up to the Beauty Arena for the Best In Beauty seminar hosted by the amazing Helena Biggs. THE Richard Ward was on the panel, which just stunned me. He was absolutely hilarious- who'd have thought he could be so funny? I was sat right on the front row of James Read and after tweeting him he said I should've said hi.. I feel I've missed out on an opportunity there girls! Kidding of course..
I'm so glad I got the chance to go to Olympia Beauty, sometimes it's great when your mum owns a beauty salon as you get to go to the shows! I think I'm permanently scarred by the amount of nail polish I saw and didn't buy though, but I told myself I already have 100+ nail polishes and don't need anymore.

Just a quick shout out, the lovely Louise from Sprinkle Of Glitter gave me a mega amazing shout out in her latest video! Check it out?
