Life has been pretty hectic! All the rush and excitement about the Asiana Bridal Show built up for a whole month, it finally arrived and went so quickly. For a ten hour show, it involved a mass load of preparation, but I got through with the help of some lovely people.

Besides the crazy snowfall, the turnout was exceptional with lots of brides looking to book for their big day and wanting something different; that's where my stand gets stampeded upon. The shows always give me great exposure because it's not the conventional, standard make-up you see. I had so many people (female and male), coming up to myself and my team expressing how refreshing it is to see make-up that is not caked on. And as usual, I had many models and artists from other stands watching from around corner, 'What's going on over there?'. Oh well, I'm used to it now, been standing out from the crowd since I was young, no exception now! But this time, I stand out in a good way, not with those geeky NHS glasses mum used to get me, thanks for that Momma Bear!

Well the show went great all in all, and I must say an absolute huge thank you to the following people:

Creator Number 1: My mum; even through her pains and chronic fatigue, she still pushes through and helps me out with every show. Mum you're the greatest!

Creator Number 2: My dad; coming along to help me out, making sure I'm thinking business minded (the Asian way) and giving us many laughs along the way.

Sibling 1: My sister; keeping me focused and positive, and always up for being my model. She is the greatest spokesperson in the world, no B.S. she tells the truth and that's it!

Sibling 2; My brother; the muscles in the family. Doing the hard job that my weak arms cannot take on!

The friend; Ranj; thank you for helping set up, needed the extra help and it was much appreciated.

Cousin 1; Tanu; always willing to help me out whenever I need, thank you for coming out in the terrible weather!!

Cousin 2; Kavita; wasn't sure to put friend or cousin down as you exceed the expectations of both definations!

Kyle's Collection; Mal, Nisha and Rav; once again thank you for the gorgeous jewellery, it is the best around and I would recommend every bride wear Kyle's on their wedding day! Can't beat their quality and range of products!


Rina Roberts Bridal Wear; Rina; thank you for the amazing dress, everyone was sure turning heads at the outfit! Couldn't have made that impact without you!

The Model Friend; Mona; thank you for coming all the way from Leeds to help out! Was great seeing you again, and best line of the whole day:
Monday 6th Feb 2012 @ 1 a.m., still awake after the show, Mona says 'Ahh it (the Airbrushing) looks even better now, people should see it now! I don't want to take it off!'
