So yesterday, thanks the phenomenal organisational powers of Annette from WellnessWA, Perth girls had their first online beauty media event! Hello bloggers! It was a very welcome break from the spectre of PhD editing.
The venue was generously provided by Djurra Salon and Spa in Fremantle, which I would love to come back to for a treatment. It was a lovely space.
When we arrived at Djura, each person was treated to a relaxing massage with essential oils. I loved this! After three hours driving to get to the event (the traffic was pretty bad) it was wonderful to relax and start enjoying the day. I’d love to have this done every day.
Here is Megan from BeautyInTheSky enjoying her massage:
And Haley from PeachyClean:
As you can see, the food was stunning. Everything was fresh, beautifully prepared, and really filling. This type of catering leaves the old Subway platter for dead (which is what we would always get at my last workplace) and I will be recommending TheRawKitchen catering to everyone. Those Emma and Tom’s juices were stunning too. Must investigate further!
Below you can see Annette from WellnessWA getting the proverbial party started:
Then, of course, you can’t have a beauty event without a makeup swap! Everyone was to bring three new or barely used products for a swap at the end of the event. This is a great opportunity to try new products.
The goodie bags were absolutely phenomenal! We got two each, and they were filled with products from 30 different companies. I have no idea how Annette managed to co-ordinate (or even carry) all of these. They were seriously full!
Anita Sutton from Djurra spoke to us about what inspired her to move away from the traditional salons and spas to a more natural approach to beauty. I must say, I’ve never really thought much about ‘natural’ salons, but I like the concept. I’m so picky with what I put on my face these days, that it makes sense to find a salon that has the same mindset.
Then Naturopath Adele Plumridge spoke to us about ways to lead a healthier lifestyle. She talked about the importance of wearing a Zinc Oxide sunscreen every day, cutting back on coffee, getting enough protein in your diet, and so on.
