Last Sunday I got to go to an event I had been looking forward for ages, my first ever blogger meet! I was so excited to meet people who like me were stupidly into make up and skin care, clothes and nosing into other's lives.
We had a raffle which had amazing goodies such as a Gel Nail Kit worth £150.00 and lots of lovely bath products. I won a Balance Me Radiance Face Mask which I can't wait to try out. We headed to Pizza Express for lunch (about time too I was starving) and I had dough balls, a sloppy Giuseppe Leggara Pizza and raspberry sorbet. It was eaten way to quickly. I loved how it was so normal for us all to have our phones out at the table, taking pictures and sharing our favourite blogs and twitter names for a later date. Most people find it weird I take pictures of everything all the time!
Being one of Mia's most oldest and uh hum best friend (who organised the whole event btw) I got a sneak peek at some things that went into the goody bags so knew the rest of the girls would not be disappointed. They were amazing we had brands that have a huge following (Champney's & Benefit anyone?) along with brands that are new to me such as Kiss Air Candles. My sample draw is overflowing and I can't wait to get stuck in. Rather than do a post on everything I got I am going to test them all out and write a mini review series. I will write a small review based on some of the samples given as I feel I won't have enough product to give it a real in-depth review.
After paying for lunch we had a mooch around Topshop and Superdrug before hot chocolates in Costa. It quickly turned to 17:30 and we headed to Lush for our private party. Sophie, Martin & Maddie were our hosts and took us around the whole shop giving us an in depth insight into almost all the products as well as sharing their personal favourites with us. So many products have special little stories that are really important to how the brand progressed from a little family run because. I really felt like the guys were so passionate about their jobs and loved working for Lush which is really nice to see. I always find the staff so helpful and knowledgable about the products they are selling.I may have got a few too many purchases so will do a little haul post for you. We all said our goodbyes and I headed home to eat my cupcake and a cup of tea. It was so lovely to meet so many other bloggers. It's nice to have a large group all with shared interests! I had the best day and feel like I made some new friends which is always a nice feeling!
Here's a list of all the lovely girls that attended so make sure you check out their blogs; you may find a new favourite!
