With IMATS (the international makeup artist trade show) coming up this weekend I am getting kind of over excited....I'm pretty sure this will be the last year I'm going to be able to do this ^^ Anyway I noticed this Tag on Chocolate & Lipstick & I thought it would be a super fun way to get pumped for IMATS ^^

1. Which IMATS are you attending?
London 2014 IMATS that's coming up this weekend. I'm going on the Saturday - a.k.a. the best day to go when everyone is there & none of the stalls have started to run out of stock.
2. Have you ever been to IMATS before?

I went to IMATS last year - the post about it is here - & had an amazing time but I was really too shy to talk to anyone. Plus I was still in my manual chair so I struggled to get around so I had to get my mum's help getting around a lot of the time.
3. How are you getting there?

My mum is driving me down on the day of means getting up at stupid o'clock in the morning & putting on my makeup, also at stupid o'clock in the morning. It was the way we did it last year & it worked just fine. It meant I could sleep in my own bed so I was as rested as possible which I wouldn't be if I stayed at a hotel. Plus it saves money & all that stuff....
4. Are you bringing anyone along?

My mum is obviously driving me down & coming for support in case I spazz or collapse or w/e. My brother is also coming along this year because he's interested in the SFX & prosthetic makeup & there's only so many photos of it I can take for him ^^
5. Is there anything else in the IMATS host city that you want to see?

There is so much I still want to see in London, I've been to London less than 10 times ever so I obviously haven't seen everything. However this visit is purely about going to IMATS, I'll save exploring for when I visit my brother at uni (he's going to be studying in Wimbledon from September).
6. What days will you be in the city that IMATS is in?

Just Saturday.
7. Who do you want to meet?

Last year I saw KlairedeLys & was too shy to speak to her, same for all the bloggers/youtubers I saw. This time I would like to actually speak to them & properly chat to Nicky's Beauty Quest this time. I was again too shy to properly chat last time.
8. What company’s exhibits are you most excited to see?

I'm really excited to see the Sugarpill stand, partly just to see the beautiful makeup they'll be wearing. I'm also really interested to see the London College of Fashion stand & spend money at the Love Makeup, Hakuhodo, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics & PAM stands. The last two partly because the ppl running the stands were so nice last time ^^
9. What products are you looking for?

I'm trying not to plan too carefully but I want to get a blush brush, at least one of the Makeup Forever Cream Blushers, a few more Hakuhodo Brushes, a few lip liners & the new tarred & feathered lip product from OCC. Okay so maybe I am planning...I would like to get a few spontaneous purchases though.
10. How much do you plan to spend?

More than I'm going to admit to ANYONE but lets just say I have saved at lot of money...
11. What do you want to get out of IMATS?

Makeup? Also learning about makeup & chat &...I don't know..... The experience. Last year's IMATS was one of the best things I've ever done & the experience really pushed me to keep doing things despite the M.E.

I am so excited to go to IMATS this year with my electric wheelchair. Weirdly having the independence I get from my electric chair I know I am going to be so much more confident....I just hope that I'll remember that on the day lol

I tag anyone who is going to IMATS this year or any other year & I hope that if you're going on Saturday you'll stop me & say hi ^^

  4. I really wanted to go to IMATS this year but no-one that wanted to come was free! I was diagnosed with ME just over a year ago and have just started to use a wheelchair so would definitely need someone to help me get around. Maybe next year :) x


    1. I hope you get to go next year :) I'll hopefully see you there.
