The Importance of Building Your Confidence
Well, we all met up in town, and went for a wander round the shops, then some of the bloggers carried on shopping whilst others (including myself) went for a drink in Burger King. It was lovely though just to have a sit down and have a chat with people I normally only talk to through the power of the internet. I am a very shy person and suffer with my nerves and so it takes a lot of courage for me to go ahead and meet people I have never met before. But it just shows how things are so much easier than you at first think, and how in your head you think you can't do something when in reality if you face your fears head on, they are smaller than you could ever think. By overcoming my fears, I made new friends and developed my confidence in speaking to people I had hardly met before.
At 4pm we headed to Lush and I decided to buy more bath bombs for my little boy who loves watching them swirl around the bath and see the different colours they change into. Then, I did a little more damage to my bank balance in The Body Shop and at 6pm we went to Pizza Hut, where we all sat down, ate some lovely food, and we had a talk with Becky from Harlequin Cosmetics, showing us all of her home made shower gels, and body lotions and she spoke about how all the ingredients used are all natural and no nasty chemicals are added. I purchased a body lotion and it smells lovely. I cant wait to purchase more from that range, you should definitely check Harlequin Cosmetics out.
I was so shocked and lucky because the goody bags (there were 2!!!!) that Jess and Katrina had got for us were rammed to the top with lots of different things. I loved everything in there, and now I will post some photos of the different things we received.
You know how I love to change my nail polish all the time, so false nails are always great to receive. The nail art set is amazing to receive as I'm not very adventurous with my nails and maybe this will push me to be a little more daring, and bring out my artistic side (if I have one)
MUA is always a brand I need to look into more, as I don't tend to buy much of their make up so, to get a primer, eye crayon, blush and a lip crayon is lovely as I can try them all out, and review them all for you. They are very inexpensive and so would be a fantastic bonus if I find that the pigmentation and staying power is good.
Don't you think we received some great things? I know I do and I am eternally grateful for Jess and Katrina inviting me to tag along. See, if I hadn't gone along, I would not have made so many new and lovely friends, it is so important to to try and step outside your comfort zone sometimes.
Till next time,
