I feel like I should provide some feedback on the PR/Blogger Meet Up that happened on Tuesday night. But first, I want to talk about the awesome pants I wore. So awesome.
It is insane how many compliments I got on my pants. They really are gorgeous though. The label is I Am and I got them from a local boutique called That Shop Everyone Talks About. They stock lots of local emerging designers and always have interesting pieces and cool jewellery (there is a knuckle duster ring I have my eye on). Anyway, as everyone keeps telling me, printed pants are in and these have a really flattering cut so I’m feeling pretty proud of myself right now.

As for the PR/Blogger event, it went really well. Speaking in front of 100+ people is incredibly nerve-wracking and I was sweating like a pumpkin on Halloween beforehand. The feedback was all really positive though, and hopefully we gave all the beauty and fashion PRs a bit of insight into why we blog and how to best communicate with bloggers.
If you’re a blogger, I highly recommend you jump on over to iBlogFashion.com and download the first issue of iBlogBeauty – it’s worth reading through my article on what PRs think because there are lots of great insights from some of Sydney’s leading beauty PRs. And if you’re a newbie to the beauty blogging scene, my inbox is always open if you have any questions! Our community isn’t regulated like it is in the States, so it’s up to us to self-regulate with disclosure and honesty policies. Being recognised as a serious and credible medium is an uphill battle, but if we all work together and sing from the same songbook (preferably something with 80s power ballads in it, cos I like belting a good 80sPB) then it benefits everyone.
Whoa. Too much serious business for a Friday. We need to break this up with some light relief. I have just the thing…
Have a good weekend!! And Happy Halloween if you’re that way inclined.
