Nottingham Blogger Meet

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to grab myself a space to attend the Nottingham blogger meet, hosted by Leah and Gemma. It was held at a bar/restaurant called Sobar that sells delicious food and non-alcoholic drinks – clever name huh? Once we had all arrived, chatted and had full bellies, we made our way upstairs to the function room. There we received a great talk from Suzie from Xenca, and then we were let loose to try out all the products!

Once the talk had finished and our hands looked like mini rainbows, Suzie then kindly let us choose a full size eyeshadow/lipstick or lipgloss to take home which was so generous of her. The raffle then took place – sadly I didn’t win anything, but I did get a goodie bag from the day which had so many amazing products inside!

and what would a blogger meet be without a group photo?!

Blogger meets really do bring like-minded people together, and compared to the last meet I attended in Nottingham (which seems like so long ago), I knew considerably more people this time which was lovely and I felt much less shy. Hopefully I’ll get to meet all these charming bloggers again soon!
