Perth Online Beauty Media #POBM

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:

After the massages, it was time for some food. As much as I love eating well, I’ve never actually tried ‘raw food’ as such, and this was my first opportunity to do so.

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!

We also got to take home some fantastic Aveda products courtesy of Aveda and Djura. I’ve never actually tried anything from Aveda, so I’m looking forward to trying these out.

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.

Then it was time for more pedicures provided by the team at Djurra, and lots more chat. This is the point at which we started to investigate the goodie bags, hence the smiles in the photos below.

Here I am with Anissa from BeautifullyGlossy (left) and Suzanne from Don’tTheyKnowWhoIAm? (right).

At the end of the day we did our makeup swap, and went home with even *more* products to try.

Even better, Anissa and Hannah won fantastic prizes from Endota spa (which Annette tells me is opening in the city soon) and I’m looking forward to posts from both of them on their prizes!

It was a great day, and I thank Annette and all the sponsors for their generosity!

  1. I was following the POBM tweets yesterday and figured you Perth beauty bloggers were having some sort of event, but couldn’t figure out for the life of me what POBM stood for XD

    It looks like it was such a great event! I’d kill for a massage and some raw macaroons right now. And OMG IT’S SUZANNE 😀

  2. Dempeaux says:

    @SilhouetteScreams And now you know! 😉 OMG I’d love that massage again right about now. Soooo relaxing. And the food! I’m bowled over by how tasty ‘raw food’ is. AND OMG yes! Suzanne! ;D

  3. Haley says:

    Such a great day! Loved all of the beauty tips-we have such a wonderful beauty community in Perth, we’re so lucky!!! You have to try Samudra in Dunsborough for Raw food too-it’s fab!

  4. ki. says:

  8. Dempeaux says:

  9. Dempeaux says:

  13. Jessica says:

    Wow! I am so disappointed I couldn’t be there, it looks & sounds like you all had an incredible time! x

  14. Dempeaux says:

  16. Dempeaux says:

    @Stacey Turns out we all exist! 😉 It was a great day 🙂

  17. Li Wen says:

    Emma and Tom juices are delicious! The cafe in my office building (where I get lunch most days) recently started stocking them, and I’m hooked.

  18. Dempeaux says:

    @Li Wen I did not expect you to say that, but I’m glad you did! Me too! They’re so nice, and I’m usually not a huge fruit juice fan. I prefer whole fruit rather than juice as a rule, but these are fantastic! 🙂

  19. Oh wow! It looks like a fabulous time was had by all 😀
