This is a belated post as the Sheffield bloggers meet was not the Saturday that's just gone but the one before,
Rachel, Caroline and me organised it, more credit goes to these two girls tough since they pulled out
most of the stops and the arranged amazing goody bags we got.
I helped by designing the bloggers gift tags which I know you all loved, and I also turned up early to meet Rachel and help both Rachel & Caroline to set up.
I also want to credit Georgina for her amazing photography and for providing the following photo's
As soon as we got to Hamburger Co we set up before the other bloggers arrived and filled all the goodie bags, the staff at hamburger co offered us refreshments straight away and were so helpful,
I wasn't aware of what was going in the goody bags but when I checked later, there was so many goodies that I can't wait to use.
It was a really successful event and the lovely people at Hamburger Co let us have half of the restaurant as well as a free meal, which I thought was so generous of a company, the food was amazing, they did so many different burgers and there was enough on the menu to cater for everyone's taste.
I will definitely be going to the one in Manchester when it opens as that's the nearest one to me.
It was nice to put a few faces to the blogs I follow, and I enjoyed meeting lots of new people, I wish I had talked to a few more of you girls though - I do regret that - maybe at the next meet up if we arrange another one :)
- The girls who came -
Halfway through the meet up we had a few prizes to gives out that had been kindly donated by a few companies.
I couldn't believe my ears when Rachel read my name out, I'd only gone an won the Paul Mitchell hair products hamper - I also won a lush bar too but thought since I won one prize I thought it would be nice to give someone else the opportunity,
We all had a good chat and had plenty of time for photo's and a good catch up and chat with the other bloggers,
We were the first group, Rachel, Gina, Stacey, Kery's, & Claire were in our group with me,
I really enjoyed the talk as I don't tend to go in LUSH a lot, let alone feel confident enough to speak to the ladies who work in there who were so helpful.
I do feel now that if I went into the shop I could actually ask for advice on their products.
When we first got there we were given some "LUSH FUN" you can use FUN in the bath or to wash your hair or body, as well as being able to mould it in shapes which was particularly fun, we made little animals out of ours and I was pleased to see some in our goodie bags we got from there.
We were then shown to Lush's Emotional Brilliance make up range, a few girls had a go of the colour wheel they have where you have to close your eyes then when you open them, pick the first three colours your attracted to and match them up with the colours they had in there range "I thought that was a great idea and a good way to interact with the customers" they had some gorgeous colours in there range in the form of lip colours, eye-shadows and eyeliners.
We were then showed to the "emotional brilliance " skin care range which featured colour supplements, skin tints, powder and the mascara range,
I found this stand particularly interesting as I've been wanting to try more natural products, I was so happy when I found I had a colour supplement and a emotional brilliance powder in my LUSH goodie bags - review upcoming - its been amazing for my skin.
We were also shown the raw ingredients that go into there products which was really interesting to see,
I wanted to say a big thank you to the girls at the Sheffield LUSH store for all there help and the activities they arranged, they were absolutely lovely and I learnt quite a bit more about the brand than I did know.
After our talk at Lush, a few of us girls headed up to Primark for a shop but it was really busy and I think we were a little tired out from our day already, I did manage to pick up a cute blue aztec print dress and some pink sandals to add to my holiday wardrobe.
We got the train back at about 7ish and had a good chat on the way back,
When I got back I had a good look at all the goodies I had in my bag, I have so many thing I am looking forward to trying.
I also opened my Paul Mitchell prize and was really surprised what was in there, there were lots of gorgeous hair care products I know I will use all of, I almost bought the Tea Tree shampoo & Conditioner range earlier that week from my salon too.
So thank you very much Paul Mitchell for giving away that lovely prize,
I also want to say thank you to Bastiste, Benefit, BlanX, DCH, Elemis, Hamburger Co, Jamelia Skincare, LUSH Meadowhall & Sheffield, Regenovex, Tea Pigs, The Body Shop and Witch Skincare for providing all the goodies in the goodie bags and spoiling us.
I can't wait for the next event, I had such an amazing day and loved meeting new people and adding new blogs to my reading list.
