I met up with some of the other girls before the event and we had a walk around some of the stores, and then slowly made our way up to the venue. Once inside, the area where the meet was to be held, was decorated really beautifully with pink and white roses, and cupcakes that had #bhmbloggermeet spelled out on the icing.
Once all the girls arrived, Abbigayle got straight down to business and spoke to us about what she had planned for the 2 hour meet up. We were all allocated a name badge and on that badge had a symbol, e.g a ring, or a teacup, or a square. We had to one at a time, say our name and then Abbigayle asked us a certain question depending on what our symbol was. I was fine, until she said my name, and my mind went totally blank and I couldn't think of a suitable answer to the question. Duh!! Trust me, my moment of fame and I stuffed it up,lol.
Then we all got to pick our goody bags,and they were totally amazing. In there were lots of lovely things, and an fantastic binder that Abbigayle had made all herself to help us keep on track with our blogs and information sheets to fill in to keep records and things. This is a god send to me, and will totally be helpful for me in trying to promote my blog even more. We then had to instagram our picture holding the binder. Yet again, my nerves came into play and I could not take a good picture and so asked the lovely Laura, who was sat next to me, if she could help me.
"cupcakes + makeup = the perfect day"
We then could instagram the picture and the quote that Abbigayle thought was the best would win a prize. Luckily enough, we were able to eat the cakes after, and oh my days, they were delicious.
After this, we had a talk about Motives Cosmetics from the lovely Kirsty Lo, she brought some gorgeous samples for us to look at and test and one of them was an eyeshadow palette, that I totally fell in love with, and once I get enough money that will so be on my shopping list.
Then we had a tutorial from 2 girls from the Central School Of Make up, who showed us how to apply eyeliner correctly and tips and tricks to help us along the way, which was totally needed by me, as I am useless at eyeliner.
Now onto the goody bags. This part will be photo heavy, as I wanted to show the amazing things we received from the wonderful companies who helped to enable the meet to take place.
This gorgeous photo and pencil from Dottie Rocks.
The lovely people at Lush in Birmingham sent us this big bag of products. I love Lush and their products, so this was gratefully received.
You know me and my brushes, a girl can never have too many, so this brush will come in very handy.
Sampler perfumes from Colour Me Fragrances.
Thankyou so much to Abbigayle for allowing me to take part in this wonderful meet up, and to the other girls who were there for making me feel included and making the day so special, last of all a big shout out and thankyous to the companies who sent us things to be tested.
I hope you have enjoyed reading this post.
Till next time,
