On Saturday 19th July, me and Jess hosted a blogger meet up in Birmingham. We had planned it for ages and were so excited for it to happen! All of us girls met up outside the Bullring – it was raining horribly which I thought would put a bit of a downer on the day, which it didn’t and I was so glad! This was quite a bit smaller than the first meet up I attended so I felt it was easier to get to know people. Thanks to everyone that came. I hope you enjoyed your day, I really enjoyed mine! It was lovely to meet everyone! Every single person that came was so lovely, and everyone got along really well.
We split into two groups to go shopping to make it a bit easier, and we all met up at Lush where we had a demonstration of the ‘Granny Takes a Dip’ bath bomb – it looks amazing in the water. The woman at Lush described it as a Supernova! Afterwards, some of us went to The Body Shop and Boots to have a look around.
We then went down to Pizza Hut, where me and Jess laid the goody bags out on everyone’s seats.Everyone came in, we chatted, enjoyed some Boomf marshmallows then ordered our food and drink, fizzy drinks with a shot of flavour, the part that everyone seemed to love! I kept refilling my glass with Vanilla Pepsi Max…yum! For my meal I had Chicken Bites and Garlic Bread, so the photo of pizza is actually Chloe’s pizza! Afterwards, everyone was stuffed we decided to pass on dessert and just carried on chatting away and getting to know each other. Yipsy Macarons also bought some macaroons along, which must have been a hit as they were all polished off, along with the marshmallows after we’d eaten our meal.
Becky also did a talk about her company, Harlequin Cosmetics, and we got to smell the products – my favourite was the Dolly Pink shower gel! She bought some sample sizes for everyone to buy and I bought the hand cream, which smells AMAZING and I can’t wait to use it.This is an example of our goody bags, which I am so grateful for all the companies involved for providing! The tote bags were provided by Lipcote and The Blogger Programme (who printed our hashtag on especially). Our goody bags in the end were worth over a huge £200 – totally unexpected, I was ever so pleased with them.
