Today I have Post Blogging Conference Depression (PBCD). To be honest, it came on the minute the plane hit the tarmac last night as I returned home from Nuffnang’s Blogopolis.
Symptoms presented thus far include:
1. Forgetting that I have children.
2. Forgetting that children need to be woken and driven to school.
3. Remembering that room service will not bring breakfast.
4. An overwhelming compulsion to stare at the #nnb2011 Twitter stream.
5. An overwhelming compulsion to read each and every blog post about #nnb2011.
6. A desire to join the blog roll of Blogopolis blogs posts being written.
Hence, my joining the fray this afternoon with this offering.
Melbourne, where was your cold winter weather? I really came prepared and found you weren’t as cold as you told me you would be. Thankfully I’d planned my outfits around layers and was just able to leave six of them off.
Here are some of the bits and pieces from my wardrobe that made the cut and 20kg baggage allowance. The gorgeous and talented official #nnb2011 photographer Danimezza took a full-length photo of me from the actual conference day.
You know that Twitter is my first social media love, don’t you? Well, I was feeling that love big time on Saturday throughout the conference. Thanks to everyone who posted fantastic Tweets throughout the two masterclasses I was involved with. Your cheques are in the mail.
Here are some of the ones that I’m getting framed for the
pool lady room.
OMG. I really have shied away from a red lip because of being on the wrong side of 40 but no more. Napoleon Perdis, you are a genius. Well, we all knew that, but seriously, if I ever have the chance to meet you, it’s this red lip I’ll be kissing you with. I was already a massive fan of Aphrodite but that Greek Goddess has been kicked off my makeup shelf for Lady in Red Lip Gloss ($30).
Lady in Red is the perfect balance colourwise of orange-pink tones I need in a red. It goes on super easy. Even in a dark club with just an iPhone as a mirror. At first it feels and looks like a gloss but it settles in with the finish of a lipstick. And one that will survive a pre-Blogopolis event drink … or four.
Best of all, lips are not left lacking in moisture, which I’m told is thanks to the fusion of argan oil (apparently it’s not just for hair) and cherry extract.
It’s available from today at Napoleon Perdis concept stores, David Jones and selected pharmacies and salons. If this red isn’t right for you, try the other two lip glosses out today – Undercover Red and Front Row Red and tell me what you think.
I’ll be blogging more on Saturday about what I spoke about at Blogopolis. In the meantime, the most comprehensive reporting of what went down at the conference can be found over at The Blog Stylist. I finally got to meet Bree, even though it felt like we’d known each other forever. She is one amazing and knowledgeable blogger. Massive. Girl. Crush.
Did you go to Blogopolis? Have you got PBCD today? Do you have a cure?
