Happy HUMP DAY lovelies! 

ThroughBeautyEyes.Com is finally back from that hiatus of mine! I was busy preparing for my Chartered Accountant Program Audit Exam and have been busy with events since then. I am still trying to recover from my lack of rest/sleep since last Tuesday and its still not happenin' and will not be until the long weekend! 

I have also just attended the inaugural Australian Beauty Bloggers Weekend 2011 that was founded and organised by Jacie from You've Got Nail and Kimmi from The Plastic Diaries.

The event was beyond amazing albeit a tad too full on - it was great to finally put faces together with twitter/blog and meet the Aussies bloggies! 

I am still trying to "recover" from the massive weekend and my room is still in its "hurricane-struck" state. Hence, just a couple of photos (which isn't that sufficient IMO) to illustrate what an awesome weekend it has been. More detailed posts will be coming up soon! (No empty promises this time! ;D)

Goodies bags I received from Day 01, except for the IMATS bag which was my mini haul :) 
I got a muscle ache from carrying all these goodies bags the next day and I had to get picked up because the sponsors were THAT generous that it was impossible to lug it home via public transport! 

@Beauty Blogger Gala 2011 organized by the Maxted Thomas PR, which was absolutely mindblowing. More on that later! :)

Dana,Kylie,Tammerly, Yours truly.

Our failed attempt is trying to look like Lady Gaga but looks more like an Asian peace sign pose instead, me thinks.

 Bahar Etminan from RESCU_ which probably gave the best speech during the weekend! It was simply inspiring! 

Yes, I went a little crazy at INGLOT

I hope you enjoy this little sneak peak to IMATS/Australian Beauty Bloggers Weekend 2011 of mine, definitely more to come! I am just about to reply to all comments and emails after work today, my apologies to those who haven't heard back from me in the past 2-3 weeks! 

Did you attend IMATS/ ABBW2011? Did you enjoy it?

So glad to have met you at ABBW!! I didn't get to go crazy at IMATS but then I think my very heavy luggage wouldn't have survived had I done so anyways!
