Forgot to upload these pictures from my last blog post about the Nuffnang’s Talent Bloggers Program launch.
With the friendliest make up blogger ever, Superkawaiimama. I super love her. Her vintage fashion styling and make up is immaculate!
With my favourite girls from Nuffnang – Ida and Vanessa. Look at how happy they are when they see me. #laughsevilly
On a side note, check out the crazy studded boots Vanessa wore to the launch. I DIY studded mine too, but compared to hers.. mine looked like nothing. Check out my DIY studding tutorial here.

Nuffnang Talent Bloggers Program has officially launched!
11 other bloggers and myself were chosen to become a part of the pilot program! Basically the Talent Program will now focus on educating all bloggers to become better and stay motivated!! Nuffnang Australia will be organising more educational master classes and resources for bloggers all over Australia! :)
The master classes will focus on a range of topics important to blogging, such as social media strategy, building a brand around your blog, working with brands, SEO, website management, and more. Talent bloggers will also be given the opportunity to sit on discussion panels with some of the world’s most popular international bloggers, sharing knowledge and applying the skill sets to Australian blogs. – Nuffnang blog
I’m super duper excited about becoming a part of this team!! See the photoshoot we had at the launch party in Melbourne!
With the rest of my fellow Australian bloggers

World’s Longest Catwalk #WLC? Seriously?
WORLD’S LONGEST CATWALK.
Last week, ECCO shoes held an event at Darling Harbour, Sydney, to beat the world’s longest catwalk record of 2.7km in Turkey. They invited bloggers, competition winners (from their facebook) and some others from the media to model their shoes!!
I was lucky enough to be invited! I’d never tried ECCO shoes prior to this soley because I’ve always been a big fan of “uncomfortable” shoes truly believing that looks & comfort just do not go together. Think about those amazing Christian Louboutins!!! #mindsidetracks
For those who have not been introduced to ECCO shoesbefore, they are known for their lightness, comfort and flexibility. I have flat feet so it’s typically extremely hard to find comfortable shoes. They either scrape the back of my heels, or pinch either ends of my toes. But the shoes that I modelled for Ecco.. did do not any of these!!! I was essentially walking on cushions!!!!!
I wore these loafers during the whole catwalk are called KAYLOR.
Rich leather ladies moccasin with a contemporary nautical look
Absorbent and extremely breathable leather lining for all-day freshness
Comfort foam cushioning supports the foot for easy wear
Slim, highly flexible cemented rubber sole enhances stability
Here I am with some of the other models. There were 39 of us altogether and we walked a total of 2.812 kms each!!! Some of us were even in wedges and heels!!!!

With the super gorgeous and friendly Cecylia
Mia Freedman, author and writer of MammaMia hosted the event! She’s such an amazing speaker and David Thompson from Record Setter came to measure the distance of the catwalk and award ECCO shoes for their new record! I can’t seem to find the video that was made on the day, but here are some photos! You can also see the rest of the photos here.
You are read more about the World’s Longest Catwalk here.
After the long walk, half of us walked over to Black by ezard to indulge in a mouthwatering feast.
Blueberry & Lemon Tart
I’ll be back with the video real soon!!
Did anyone manage to catch the show on Saturday morning? Let me know if you did!

On Sunday morning at about 9am, Jeanice randomly sms’ me and we decide to head over to the Sydney International Beauty & Spa Expo 2012!!
I’ve received plenty of emails about it, but I didn’t think it would interest me because I didn’t realise there would be so many cosmetics, brushes and skincare stalls there! I thought there would mainly be “body treatments” and “hair treatments”, etc.
Anyhow, I rocked up and found that it was three halls!! That’s even bigger than IMATS and just about the same size as the Fashion expo I went to this year!!!
My media registration card. I love taking photos of these passes that have “Chaigyaru” or “Blogger” on them!! Makes me feel like a real blogger #blushes
OPI polishes for $10. Everyone was crowding around that stand!!! Does anyone know it’s $12 at Bankstown?
Jean & I posing at this huge make up mirror. Really reminds me of my Conair light up mirror that I use for my make up every morning!!!
I kind of feel like I’m sitting here and presenting at a talk show. I wish I could host my own talk show one day!!! #dreamsbig
Red Woolen Cardigan is from Endless Wardrobe
This brand “Eye of Horus” really caught my eye because the way they set up their store was really unique!!! They made the whole stall Egyptian themed and even had bollywood dancers dancing around their stall!!!!
In the middle of the expo, they had a catwalk too!! Damn those girls are so lean and tall!!! #fitnessmotivation
There were quite a few asian beauty stores too!! This one was one of the “korean” ones so there were “Scandal” (korean brand) nail polishes for about $4!!! Look at the amount of nail polishes on these stands!! That’s just from one stall!!!
The one thing that Jeanice was really really excited about is Minx nails!!! Apparently she can’t find them anywhere!! We were going to do a demo, but didn’t bother because the line was too long!!
Butter London also had a stall. Jeanice bought some of the shades I recommended on my review video on Butter London!
If you missed out, check out the list of exhibitors that were there at the event!
Using front camera of iphone so it was really shxt quality. Apple, you really need to consider the quality of your front camera!!!!
I only ended up making a few purchases because I have far too many beauty products (for my own good). I purchased a pink tweezer from Tweezerman for $16, some nail glitter gel for $4, sterling silver studs for sensitive ears for $13 and some tanning mousse and mitts from Techno Tan for $20.
If you missed out, I highly suggest you to go next year!! Or.. IMATS coming up this year – usually it’s in September! More info on the Sydney International Beauty & Spa expo here and IMATS here.

I can’t believe it’s been a year since the first Nuffnang Blogopolis in Melbourne. I still remember last year so clearly.. when everything.. was so different. I had blonde hair.. I loved my pink Zara blazer.. it was one of my first times going to Melbourne.. and from there.. everything has changed so much..
This year.. I have grown up so much.. I have learnt so much from people who truly care for me.. from people who really love me for who I am.
This year.. I had the opportunity to speak infront of 250 bloggers at Sofitel Hotel, Sydney. Amazing venue, btw. Look at the ceiling… #justsaying
It still amazes me that time passes so quickly. It still amazes me that I’ve owned this blog for over 3 years and it still amazes me that my readers continue to grow by the day. It amazes me that I’ve been a “blogger” for almost 10 years (since I was 14 years old) and that I have grown up so much since then.
Thank you Nuffnang for growing the blogging community.. for letting each one of us have the opportunity to grow our blogs and showing us off proudly to the world…
