Makeover Expo

The Makeover Expo was brilliant. So glad I went. I met up with Jadey and her mum (sorry Jadey, I've forgotten your mum's name) who are both heaps of fun.

First off we went to a seminar on how to dress with style. The woman had some interesting stuff to say, including using Jadey to demonstrate how to draw attention to your boobs! Well maybe it wasn't quite like that.

Then we went around all the exhibitors. It didn't look like a lot but there was heaps to keep us interested and lots of freebies. My favourite giveaway bag was from the dentists - it had a tube of toothpaste, a dental floss business card and a disposable camera!

I found out heaps about dentistry - eg. it's expensive and about tummy tucks - not as expensive as I thought. I also had my nails buffed so they are nice and shiny instead of covered in half-chipped polish like they usually are. We entered about a thousand competitions so the junk email will be coming in heavy for the next few weeks!

We had lunch (and a much needed coffee) then watched the pole dancing demonstration. Later, I had a chat to the pole dancing girls about the hen's night I'm organising. In an amazing synchronisitic moment, just after I left the hen-to-be sent me a text asking if I thought pole dancing would be fun for the hen's night. Freaky.

Got some photos before we left - us with our loot. I still haven't finished my camera but I'll post them eventually.

I love free stuff, even if it is just junk mail!
Glad you had a good time, can't wait to see the photos.
Have a great week.

WOW hope they have that expo here. I will be there like a shot. What a fun afternoon. I especially like the opportunity to have an 'expert' help explain how to dress to highlight certain features. Wonder if I could do that for my elbows ;D

sounds like fun,I'm hanging out for the photos
regarding the dentist, i did hear that some people who have the dental insurance just get one crown or something done each year, and so then it is not so expensive. other friends of mine have had to put things on the credit card and resign themselves to paying off slowly. i think we all need to have a few major teeth repairs by a certain point. nobody really told me to expect that so it does come as a bit of a surprise, but i hope the repairs keep the teeth going for a few decades.

I need to know more about the tummy tucks...were they very expensive? never know one might come in handy one day. Glad you had a good day. I have never heard of a makeover expo.
