On Saturday I went to the #NottsMeetSep14 hosted by Gemma and Leah, who have been organising this meet up for the last six months. It's been exciting getting little updates. It honestly came by really quick and all the hard work really payed off.
I'm splitting this into two posts, one about the day and another about the gift/goody bag which we got at the end of the day, I don't usually do that in case people see it as bragging but I just thought the bag was thoughtfully put together and there a re brands/products in there that I think a few of you would like!!
I forgot to take my camera on the day so photos of the event were taken on my phone.
The event was held at Sobar, a relatively new alcohol free bar in Nottingham. The majority of the bloggers were from Nottingham or local, I always find these things strange, sometimes I've spoken to some of the bloggers online or met them before but on the day you always (well I do) tend to stay with the first people you see/go up to and not really mingle, I think that's mainly due to shyness on my part. So sorry if I didn't say Hi! We had our own little reserved area, where we could enjoy our food. I opted for the Mozzarella and sun-dried tomato salad with a side of Garlic bread, which was yummy, I LOVE sun dried tomatoes. The tables were decorated with up-cycled coke can flowers, which me and and many other bloggers loved and now want to attempt to make our own.
Suzie gave us a little bag filled with information about Xenca and their products as well as very kindly gifting each blogger their choice of their favourite make up product. I opted for the eyeshadow in Mink, I love natural colours so this one was perfect for me, although it was a hard choice choosing! After the chat was over, we took part in a raffle and given our 'goody bags' but more on that tomorrow! It was really such a lovely day so a BIG thank you to Leah and Gemma for organising it, Suzie for coming to talk to us and Sober for having us!
