BYS Cosmetics Girls Night Out at Hoyts Goody Bag*

BYS Cosmetics Girls Night Out at Hoyts Goody Bag - Sweetaholic Beauty

Last week, I was lucky enough to attend the premiere of Beauty and the Beast, courtesy of BYS Cosmetics. We took part in the Girls Night Out at Hoyts Cinemas. Bloggers United AU actually helped BYS Cosmetics out with the guest list - which was a lot of fun. I was at the Melbourne Central Hoyts, while the other group was at the Chadstone Hoyts. 
Spoiler alert - I cried a few times in the movie. It was amazing. But I'm here to show you the awesome goody bag provided to us from BYS Cosmetics.

The goody bag was incredibly generous and heavy. We also got a free popcorn and drink for the movie which was pretty awesome as well. There was supposed to be a second goody bag but the cinema messed up and forgot to put them out, so BYS Cosmetics are being super kind and mailing them to us instead. I was pretty stoked with these products, though, so I'm definitely not complaining.

Five Years Blogging: My Reflections

Five Years Blogging: My Reflections - Sweetaholic Beauty

It's almost hard to believe that I have now been blogging for five years. Five long years. I started my blog as a way to battle my depression and social anxiety. Well, five years on I have a successful blog - at least I consider it to be successful - and I am the proud co-founder of an amazing blogging movement, Bloggers United AU

I thought that rather than simply host a giveaway or do a generic blogiversary post, I would share some of my reflections over the past five years. These reflections can be taken as advice or dismissed, or simply enjoyed by my fellow bloggers - these reflections are mine and mine alone. As bloggers it's inevitable we share experiences, but our own reflections may differ.

Five Years Blogging: My Reflections - Sweetaholic Beauty

Five years on, I have made many friends, travelled across Australia, worked with many brands and tried many new things. Blogging has opened up an entirely new world of people, places and things to see and do. I have had so many amazing experiences, and a few not-so-great ones too. 

There is a lot of negativity surrounding the word "blogger." I have found this out the hard way. I constantly get the questions: "Do you get free stuff?" or "So you get paid to play with beauty products?" Sadly, it's not that easy. Very early on, I learnt that even when you're a blogger, nothing is for free. There is also a lot of pressure to look good on social media all the time, lead an interesting life and look amazing at every hour of the day. Yeah, nah. Not for me, sorry. I am proud to say I haven't let my love of all things dark, crazy, spooky and weird die out just because I'm a beauty blogger. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and I'm proud to be me.
