I bought a brand new laptop (finally) but it decided to break after I used it for one day and it was two weeks old! Just my luck I suppose, it is truly a bummer and it is going to cost a bit to fix. So for now, I am using someone else’s; fortunately I have some generous people around me. Anyway back to today’s post, the only shopping festival I look forward to for the year; The Beauty Swop or Sale Beauty Expo. Last year I won best dressed and I got a prize, read all about it here: The Beauty Swop or Sale Beauty Expo – Cape Town.
This year is a tad bit different but it looks even more promising. I interviewed the founder of the expo and of the Facebook group Charnelle Avontuur, to ask her questions that have been on my mind.
1. Which brands will be present at the Beauty Swop or Sale Expo?
Charnelle: “All of the brands on the poster will be present besides Marc Anthony, Kiss and Impress and Black Opal.”
2. Will the vendors have any sales or special releases?
Charnelle: “Ofra Cosmetics and Pink Cosmetics will be launching new products at the Expo. Pink Cosmetics will have Goodie bags, giveaways and more…” (This is super exciting, I love both these brands and I have discount codes for them on my site.)
3. Why the change of venue this year?
Charnelle: “We changed the venue because we learned at our first expo last year that the venue was too small. We did not anticipate the amount of support we received. We also have more stalls available and bigger brands that came on board this year. We changed it up according to the feedback we received from attendees and plan to constantly improve on the expo. Our goal is to remain the biggest consumer beauty expo in South Africa.”
4. What will be in the goodie bags?
Charnelle: “As you know the goody bags are always kept a secret up until the day where we love to surprise out attendees. I can say though that it is super lit.”
5. Why should people attend this year?
Charnelle: “I will leave that upto you to answer as you have previously attended.”
My answer: I had so much fun at last years event; it was more than just a beauty expo. It allowed for so many beauty fanatics from the Facebook group to connect and chat about the things we love most. Imagine a Sephora store but with people you know, it’s that but better! (Yes, I have been to Sephora, lol).
