Northern Blogger Meetup

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice weekend, yesterday I went to the Northern Blogger Meetup in Sheffield at Eten Cafe it was absolutely amazing and I wanted to say a huge thank you to Kathryn from The Kats Paws, Catherine from Counter Pretty, Kirstie from Short Lashes and Tori from Dolly Birds and Bows for organising such a wonderful event.
The event was held at Eden Cafe in Sheffield near the Cathedral, I had never been to this cafe but it was really nice and the staff were really friendly, I just had a drink but other people's food looked so delicious.

Even though I have been to a couple events I still get really nervous and anxious about meeting new people but I really enjoyed getting to know other bloggers they were so friendly and lovely, who knew there was quite a few Sheffield bloggers like myself. 

Lush came by and gave us an informative talk on the history, suppliers and charities they donate to. They brought bath bombs with water so we could have a little demonstration and the room then smelt so heavenly from them. We each got a little goodie bag and mine include a Sex Bomb Bath Bomb, Blousey Shampoo and an Eye Cream. The people from Lush were really passionate about it and kept us well informed.

Benefit also came by to give us a chat, we were informed on how the brand first started in San Francisco by the sisters and then became a No1 best selling brand in the UK. Who knew Benetint first started for exotic dancers to put on their nipples, there's a weird and wonderful fact for you. Then Kitty demonstrated a step by step makeup guide with Benefit products and was very informative. We also learnt about eyebrow mapping. We then got a sneak peek into the Christmas Collections which was exciting and it looks amazing. The people from Benefit were extremely passionate too and love working for them. We also got a little goodie bag of the They’re Real Mascara and They’re Real Push Up Liner in full size, the They're Real Mascara has been a favourite of mine for a while so I'm glad to have it again and I'm excited to try the liner.

Leanne from LEM Blog showcased her nail polishes all these shades looked gorgeous, I didn't buy any but I know quite a few bloggers did so I'm sure you will be able to check their blogs out to see the nail polishes.

We then got to take away these amazing goodie bags filled with alsorts that I am so grateful for and can't wait to try. 

A big thank you again to all the organisers, they put so much time and effort into this event and it was fantastic. I had amazing time and I am so happy I was able to attend and hopefully get to see you all at future events.
