Part 1: What really happens at our PRIMPED David Jones Look Book Events (and a sneak inside the legendary goodie bag)
Mon, 10 October 2011 12:41PM
So, this year was my first time hosting our PRIMPED David Jones Look Book events and without sounding too boastful, I had an absolute ball. I’m pretty sure all the Primpettes that attended had a cracker of a time too, but seeing as though seats to the events each year are numbered, I wanted to share with you all the fun and games that we got up to over the month.
To kick things off, we had a handful (well, just over a handful to be exact) of experts from all different areas, like skincare, sun-care, makeup, hair, body-care and nails, that travelled around the different states and stores with me to share their smartest, most useful, money-can’t-buy tips with our guests (stay tuned, because I’ll be sharing those tips with you later this week).
Here’s a shot of the gang and I from an event.
From left to right: Amy from Aussie skincare brand Invisible Zinc, the always-bubbly Emma from everyone’s favourite body range, Burt’s Bees, next to Justin from eco-minded haircare brand, Prive, who is standing next to the super-healthy, super kind, Paula from skincare company, Comvita. Then, on the flipside of moi, we have smoky-eye expert, Laurel, from Rimmel London and last but not least, cheeky Karon from nail powerhouse OPI. (Missing from the shot is Makeup Maestro, Michael Brown from Lancome, who you can check out in action over here)
Apart from the obvious: getting to hang out and present with a bunch of beauty know-it-alls, the real hook for me was being given the opportunity to (finally!) meet you guys. I’ve got to say, I was blown away at how committed and excited all our Primpettes and their + 1′s were. And the best bit? We had a heap of beauty bloggers show up at each event which meant I got to learn a whole lot from you ladies, starting with this list of Aussie-based beauty bloggers that you all need to make friends with, STAT.
5 Very Excellent Beauty Bloggers (in no particular order), that loved the Look Book events and that I just know you’re going to love, too.
And here’s a shot of the legendary goodie bad that we all want so badly…

Do you have a beauty blog that we need to know about?
Did you blog about our PRIMPED Look Book events? If you did, make sure you flick me the link and I’ll add it to the list.
What do you think of the goodie bag? Pretty impressive, huh?
