Hello everyone! On Saturday I went into town to attend the Birmingham Blogger Meet Up which was organised by the lovely Jess from Dungarees and Donuts and co-hosted by Char from Charlotte Writes, thank you both very much! This is quite a long post, so I’ve put in a page break!
The day started off with us all meeting by the Bull outside the Bullring at 2. I got there early but lucky so had Zoe, so we got chatting! We headed into Selfridges, and had a look around the Illamasqua and MAC counters. A group of us then went to Starbucks and to sit on the steps outside the church as it was a nice sunny day! The other group went shopping. We then headed to Boots to have a look at the 3 for 2, before heading to Lush at 4!
In Lush, a few bloggers helped to make a face mask, Lush’s best selling Catastrophe Cosmetic. I was amazed to see how it was made! Then we were given a few freebies and went for a little look around the shop.
We then headed over to Ming Moon (to the VIP room!) where we had a talk from Chris and Kirsty about Motives Cosmetics. Afterwards, we got to chat and eat! I had such an authentic Chinese meal of chips…haha! We were given wine also, so I enjoyed a glass of Rosé.
While we were at Ming Moon, goody bags were given out that Jess had organised and put together which must have taken absolutely ages! In the goody bag, I got Propercorn, Green People samples along with a Make-up Remover, a sample from Organic Young, a Neal & Wolf Shampoo and Conditioner sample, a Superdrug Face Mask, Dylon Navy Blue Fabric Dye, Nair Facial Wax Strips, nSpa Body Polish, Benefit They’re Real Mini, B.Radiant Micellar Water and Rejuvenating Serum, a Nanshy Precise Bent Eyeliner Brush, Busy Bee Candles Magic Beanz in Baby Powder, GOSH Nail Polish in Denim Delight, MUA Blush in Candyfloss and finally MUA Lipstick in Pouty Pink.
We were also given goody bags in Lush, with a full size Angels on Bare Skin, full size Ocean Salt, and a Sunnyside Bubble Bar. They also gave us a pot with the face mask that had been made earlier to take home and have a pamper!
I also picked some of my own bits up from Lush, because, I couldn’t help myself. I picked up the Golden Egg Ballistic, which looks absolutely gorgeous, and the Fluffy Egg Ballistic which smells like Snow Fairy! I also picked up Bubblegum Lip Scrub – I used the Mint Julips one years ago but hated the taste, so I thought I’d try this one out.
I had such an amazing time meeting so many new people and making tons of new friends. Thank you again to Jess for sorting all of this out for us! I was so nervous at first to be attending but I went for it anyway and had so much fun.
