On Friday night through to currently* I was paid a visit by one of the lovely girls I met at IMATS 2012 in Sydney. We clicked straight away (despite the age difference) and had such a fun time that when she booked flights last December to come visit me this past weekend I was absolutely thrilled!

I had quite the weekend planned but a few things (mainly the weather) stopped us from following the plan however we still had a great time shopping, drinking sweet drinks at Gloria Jean’s, filming a Blindfold Makeup Challenge (to be uploaded once my Macbook is charged again), and in general catching up and chilling out and loving makeup. I had to drag poor Claire along to a church service (Christening of the newest niece was integrated in this, as my partner is her godfather) and then a very wet BBQ but I like to think she enjoyed the weekend. Or I hope so. Being the anti-social socialising type, we abused instagram filters ;-)…

Thank you so much for visiting me Claire! Can’t wait to see you again in May!

*Due to flooding and the #bigwet, Claire is stuck in Mackay still and we are hoping her flight this afternoon won’t be cancelled like her flight last night was. It was such an effort to get to and from the airport last night that at times the water was covering the car and it felt like we were going to drown. I would hate to imagine what flying in it would have been like! Fingers crossed Claire’s plane is good to go this afternoon! XX
