Happy Easter & Easter Show 2013

Happy Easter friends. I hope you've all had a lovely time with your family & friends. This year my family and I celebrated a very quiet and relaxing Easter - a contrast to when I was a child and there was always a party somewhere with an Easter egg hunt. My friends and I attended the annual Sydney Royal Easter Show. We arrived after 5pm and paid only $18 for the entrance ($37.50 full price). We went on a couple of rides and the bf and I ate some greasy show food - It's a must! haha.

I'm going to be honest, I only go to the show for the show bags. As soon as we arrived there I made a beeline straight to the show bag pavilion like an over excited child. Here are the show bags that I bought and what they contained.

Cleo Show Bag

Cleo Magazine, Shop Til You Drop Magazine, NW Magazine, Pink Cosmetic Bag, Kotex Ultra Thin Liners, Kotex Nude Liners, White Glo Toothpaste, Designer Brands Lip Liner, Zip Bandz, Palmolive Shampoo & Conditioner Sample, Garnier Sample, Compeed Sample, Moccona Caramel Coffee Sample, BChill Island Cocktail Relaxation Drink, 3 x Strawberry Fields Tic Tac & Various Vouchers.
+ 1 Free x Designer Brands Liner Free With Print Out Voucher. Click here for the Cleo Show Bag voucher.

Missing: Kotex Non Wing Liners and Walk A Day In Our Shoes - Shoe Laces.

The cost of the show bag was $20. It was worth it as the magazines, bags and Kotex products more than covered the cost price.

Madison Show Bag

Madison magazine, Harper's Bazar magazine, OK magazine, Tote bag, Wallet, Sunglasses, Designer Brands liner, Nerada 10pack tea, Fantastic Delites, Kotex nude liners, 3 x McCormick spices, Lindt chocolate, Moccona caramel coffee sample, Fresh Spray deodorant, White Glo toothpaste, White King bleach tablet, Ajax multipurpose wipe sample, Compeed sample, Garnier BB cream sample, Palmers Coco Butter lotion sample, Palmolive Shampoo and Conditioner sample, Garnier Ultra lift sample, Banana Boat sunscreen sample, Dermeze soap free wash sample, 4 x Strawberry Fields Tic Tac, Ribena black current fruit drink and various vouchers.

+ 1 Free Batiste Dry Shampoo with print out voucher. Click here for the Madison Show Bag voucher.

Missing: Kotex Ultra Thin Liners.

The cost of the show bag was $20 (Originally $22). This bag was definitely worth it. The magazines, the tote, the sunglasses and cosmetics more than cover the cost price.
I wanted to get the Women's Health Magazine showbag but unfortunately it was sold out. My tips for buying showbags is to definitely make it your first stop so you don't miss out on your favourite showbags. If you're starting at the beginning of the day hire a locker to securely hold your showbags and save you from the pain (those bags get heavy) and hassle of carrying them around. If like me you're going after 5pm and you're not buying much, you can get away with carrying them with you for a short time. Wearing comfy clothes and shoes is a must so you can enjoy the show in comfort.

What are you guys doing this Easter and if you're in Sydney have you been to the show? I'd love to know how you celebrate Easter and if you got any showbags this year. Take care and have a safe Easter break.
