Hey Girls :)

I am just wondering if there any Geeks living in Oz or who have lived there in the past? I am moving to Perth in August and slightly nervous about finding a job in a salon there or even if my qualifications (HND) will be recognised, and if the brands are completely different. I currently use Fake Bake, Shellac, Dermalogica but wondering if these will be widely available over there? I have contacted Biosculpture in Australia to ask about training dates as I was told it is pretty big over there - I trained in NSI gel and acrylic and have never been happy with the products which has left me not confident at all doing enhancements, hoping BioSculpture will be the system for me. All my kits and products have already been packed ready to be shipped on 12 June so I am feeling slightly lost and missing doing my treatments, as are all my family and friends! If there are any Ozzy Geeks, particularly Western Australia, I would love to hear from you x

We (me and my family) stayed in mandurah when we first landed! It is lovely there. But we moved NOR and love it. I came back to do a makeup course in London, met my boyfriend and ended up staying. Sponsored him so now he can come back with me! Yay.

Are you girls going over alone or with partners/family?

Have you been to Perth before? I think it's beautiful!
