ABIA Awards 2011

After a few days off work with friends and family, I'm feeling refreshed and excited to take on part two of 2011!

What a great year I have had so far, and last night proved that my brides are happy too!

I atttended the 2011 ABIA Awards, for the Queensland Bridal Industry with my partner Michael. It was such a great night, and a chance for us to celebrate my last 3 years in business. It was a great feeling to be surrounded by all the other industry professionals who have been voted the best in their field.

After being nominated as a finalist for both the hair and makeup categories I felt extremely proud. The hair and makeup industry is SOOOO competitive with new talent coming through the ranks every year. But for me the awards are not about where I placed in accordance to the next makeup or hair stylist, it's about making my brides happy on the most important day of their life. I'm not going to lie, of course it would have been fabulous to win- but that would be for me.

I am so happy with my results that reflect lots of hard work in doing everything my team and I can, to make all of our brides feel as beautiful as they possibly can on the most important day of their lives!

Both of these earned me a silver rating and a huge smile!!
Thanks again to all of my brides who took the time to rate my services, I really apprecaite the fantastic ratings you have given me!
