COME ALONG WITH ME: The #NWbloggersmeetup

Happy Monday!

The North West Bloggers MeetUp has been arranged for the past month or so and with twenty-something of us all talking very excitedly about it on Facebook, the day came around pretty quickly. I will warn you now; this is going to be a long post!

I met up with Asbeena, Bethan, Holly, Tasha, Emma and Hannah at Central Perk (the Friends cafe) in Bold Street on Saturday morning for a quick bite to eat and drink as well as a catch up. I’ve known a couple of the girls for a few months now but it was really lovely to meet Holly and Hannah for the first time.

Kabinett very kindly allowed us to have the venue from 12:30pm to 3pm for our meetup and despite not having fantastic lighting (we are bloggers after all), it was really chic and quirky. Everyone felt really relaxed within moments and I hear the bartender was quite hilarious. Not only did we have an incredible venue, all set up and waiting for us but we also had delicious cupcakes from HelloAndIndulge

I sat with a lovely bunch of girls throughout the day (most of the links are above) but I also had a great chat with Sophie whose photographs are insanely good!

Upon our arrival at the venue, we were given goodie bags from Utility as well as big goodie bags (which were kindly provided by Wild Thang. I can’t even begin to describe how much we were given from companies – thank you seems like nothing compared to what they’ve sent us all. I did want to showcase everything but due to their being a crazy amount, I’ve decided to focus on what I’m really looking forward to using and there will be some blog posts. I’ve also tried to link as many of the companies as possible.

In order to give you all the best insight to the goodies, I’ve split them into categories so it makes it easier for you and easier for me to take pictures, I’m not gonna lie..

GlamGlow weren’t part of our goodie bags but they did give out individual ones if we wanted to have a chat with Natalie about fake tan and as you can see from above, I’ve got a couple of samplers of concealer so I’m 100% going to try out the fair golden one soon.

I hope you enjoyed this post. We raised Β£80 with the raffle which will be split between Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre and Claire House Children’s Hospice.

If you’d like to follow any of the other bloggers who attended – just simply search #nwbloggersmeetup on Twitter as majority of us have been tweeting. I’ll be reviewing some of the products in the upcoming weeks!
