It's almost that time of year... Olympia Beauty is coming up on 22nd/23rd September and I have just booked my hotel stay for the night, I cannot wait to go. I've been to a fair few beauty shows over the last couple of years but I've never been to Olympia and I hear it's one of the best! I'll be going with my husband's cousin, Kirsty, who I've mentioned a few times (she is the beautician behind Lusso). We'll be staying in Covent Garden which is a tube ride away from Kensington Olympia but it means that we're central for any other shopping etc. that we want to do, I'm going to try and travel light this time unlike when I went to IMATS when I was lugging a suitcase around with me for the best part of a day!
Anyway I'm soo excited about Olympia Beauty mainly because of all the good reviews I've heard from previous years and also because the amount of exhibitors there is absolutely unreal, I have no idea how they're all going to fit in there!! The ones I'm particularly looking forward to are: Essie, CND, Inglot, Lauren's Way, Lena White, Revitalash & The Chocolate Fondue Company (NOM!)... honestly the list of exhibitors is absolutely unreal!!!
Also on Monday at least 1/2 of Pixiwoos is going to be there for the makeup competition so although I'm going to spent most of the day there on Sunday I'd really like to drop in on Monday to see at least part of the competition going on as there will be some amazing talents showcasing what they can do. There's also a body art competition and of course the 2013 Nailympics; where the best of the worlds nail talent show us what they've got.
I've been looking forward to this for months and it's finally upon us in a couple of weeks. Olympia is strictly trade only so if you do work within the beauty industry then it would be well worth getting a ticket because I think it's going to be a great day! If you see some mad woman taking as many photos as she possibly can, spending way too much money and asking way too many questions.... that's probably me!
Will I be seeing YOU at Olympia Beauty this year?
