Jodie and I 'ummmmeddd' and 'ahhhhhed' about attending Beautycon BUT once we saw that one of our favourite YouTube Bloggers was attending all the way from the US of A there was no doubting that we needed to get tickets ASAP!
After a week or two of discussing outfits and things we wanted to buy when attending Beautycon, the beloved arrived! We awoke around , prepped and primed our faces and hair, jumped in the car and headed into London. We arrived safely at Westfield in Shepherds Bush (thanks to Jodie’s safe driving skills), used our phones for direction to the Olympia (there is no way I would/could survive without my phone to direct me in every journey I take) and finally we arrived! It was time to make our BIG entrance to HEAVEN………
We were then brought swiftly back down to earth with a crash when we realised it wasn’t all we thought it was going to be! It kills me writing this but it was kinda a bit of a let down!
There weren’t that many stalls and after taking time to walk around the few that were there, we found out that most of them weren’t even selling anything. I LOVE a good freebie but when I had planned on buying lots of things (much to Josh’s dismay) from NYX, it was slightly frustrating. When we arrived to look around, we were informed that there was nothing for sale and we just had to take a selfie and tag them in order to get a free product!! And this was how most of the stalls were!!
Jodie and I just decided to make the most of the free photo booths hahaha! Who doesn’t love a photo booth!!
Then in comes Carli Bybel to save the day!!! Luckily eagle-eye Jodie spotted Carli and Brett, so we ran over to join the queue to meet her; thank goodness we were there quite quickly as once we joined the queue everyone realised she was there so the queue just kept growing!!! Carli was so lovely and I wish we could have had the chance to just sit down with a hot choccie and have a long chat but we had impatient girls waiting for their turn to take a selfie so we had to be quick! Haha!! Of course we took a selfie with Brett as well; we just didn’t want him to feel left out ;) Right Jodz!! ;)
After that, we just walked around again, listening to some panels they had with other Bloggers - one panel included Sam Chapman which was cool to see and listen to her!!By then, we were pretty much done, so we took more photos and then we just headed back to the car to drive home!!I am unsure whether I would go back again as it felt like more of a blogger convention and lots of young girls screaming at their favourite bloggers instead of a make up convention which is what we thought it would have been!!
