IMATS tag!

Saw this awesome tag here, and couldn't stop myself! IMATS here I come!

1. Which IMATS are you attending?
IMATS Sydney 2011, and I am beyond excited for it! I'm going as part of the Australian Beauty Bloggers Weekend, where I will spend time with other beauty bloggers and shop up a storm at IMATS.

2. Have you ever been to IMATS before?
No, it's my first time at a trade show and my first visit to Sydney!

3. How are you getting there? 
Flying up there, which I am nervous about as I don't like flying. I've travelled quite a bit, but never could get used to the feeling of losing control.

4. Are you bringing anyone along?
Chris and I were originally planning a weekend away for the event, but now I am leaving him on his lonesome at home and heading there with Melissa, and am meeting the other blogger ladies there.

5. Is there anything else in the IMATS host city that you want to see?
Anything and everything! First time there and I'll hopefully have Friday to explore, so feel free to throw any suggestions at me!

6. What days will you be in the city that IMATS is in? 
 I will be there from early Friday to late Sunday, if flights go as planned.

7. Who do you want to meet?
I can't wait to meet inspiring artists, and learn new techniques to play around with. I'm also looking forward to spending time with Melissa, and soaking up the awesomeness that is Australian beauty bloggers!

8. What companies exhibits are you most excited to see?
Ben Nye looks to be great, and quite different to anything I've ever seen before. 

9. What products are you looking for?
I'm yet to write a formal shopping list (gasp!) but I know that I want to peruse MUFA, MAC, Inglot and pick up some Royal and Langnickel brushes. I know I will just end up picking up things that catch my eye though, but that is just how it goes.

10. How much do you plan to spend?
Hopefully not too much, but I have put away a few hundred to spend there. I have a feeling I'll be lugging a tonne of brushes back with me...and Inglot

11. What do you want to get out of IMATS?
I'm going to change this question to "What do you want to get out of ABBW"
I want to lose some of the shyness that holds me back in life, and converse with the blogging ladies I admire.  I want to soak up every minute of beauty natter whether it be from the professionals or the bloggers, and not feel strange about comparing lipgloss attributes in detail. It's completely normal folks! And, of course, I want to enjoy the access to brands I wouldn't otherwise, and take home some goodies to keep the holiday fun going.
Will I see you at IMATS? Tell me now and I'll have worked up the courage to say hi by September!
Or, if overseas, tell me what IMATS was like for you!?
I tag all of my lovely readers!

  1. OMG hun i love this tag. I cant wait. Im about to go to work :(. But im so doing this tag when i get home.

    Can't wait

  2. Isn't it awesome! I'm getting so excited!

  3. Great tag, Emma! I think I'll do this too (maybe change it to ABBW or something) :P

  4. Can't wait to see what you come back with!!

  5. oooh love it.
    Will do and have up tomorrow!

  6. @Tine I loved doing it, and yes ABBW would make much more sense as a title =)

    @Vita I am looking forward to it, should be lots of fun hauling!

    @Lexi can't wait to see it!

  7. I have to say this is a delight to see. We are so excited that you are excited for ABBW. I can pretty much say that all your hopes for ABBW will come true because that is exactly why we are putting on this event.

    Shyness is something we all have to combat when it comes to meeting new people. You will not be alone and everyone will be in the same shoes. This will be a fun weekend and we will make sure of it.

  8. @Kimmi, thank you so much for your comment! I was so excited for IMATS alone, but ABBW promises to be an experience like no other! Am beyond excited now, this will be great for overcoming shyness, I feel so lucky to be involved=)

  9. If you have time you should go to the Botanical Gardens.
    I didn't have time to go when I was in Sydney, but I really wanted to, and heard that they are beautiful :)

  10. Squee! You're going too! I'm sooo excited and cannot wait. Can't believe it's nearly a month away! I'll do this tag for next Friday's post. :)

  11. @Candi- I'll keep that in mind, thanks babes x

    @BBB It's going to be so incredible! It doesn't feel real yet... It's so close! Can't wait to see your post on this =)

  12. Yay!! You're gonna be attending ABBW too :) Can't wait!! And Ben Nye DOES seem interesting eh?!?!


  13. I am indeed Deerest! It's getting so close, and yes Ben Nye looks promising, my purse is cringing already x
