Manchester was graced with yet another fabulous blogger event on Thursday evening- it seems us Northerners are really getting our turn lately! This time I met the gorgeous Megan (what's new pussy catt?) and Danielle (A Blog From Blackpool) and her friend Stacey and we made our way to the Walrus Canteen & Lounge in the Northern Quarter for the VIP Blogger Northern Mid-Summer Meet. We were signed in and then shown down to the funky, dimly-lit basement where it was bloggers and brands galore! Admittedly it ended up being a little cramped and stuffy with so many of us packed in to such a little space, but equipped with a glass of rosé wine and plenty of cupcakes I was a content little blogger.
There were lots of little stalls set up with brands showcasing their products, including Moroccanoil, Burts Bees and Benefit. Nails Inc. were also there offering complimentary manicures using their soon-to-be-released gel effect nail polishes and some gorgeous glitters which unfortunately I didn't get a chance to try, but I did manage to get a sweep of Benefit's new Rockaeteur blush across my cheeks. There were also lots of fashion items on display around the room, and it was difficult not to go crazy and fall in love when faced with so many pieces by Jeffrey Campbell, Senso and Cambridge Satchel Company, but it all ended when my eyes met the Grafea leather rucksacks. Just look at that lavender one. And the white one. And the yellow. <3
Unfortunately, I had to leave the event before I had chance to see any of the L'Oreal, Benefit or Evo demonstrations that were being given, but upon our departure we were handed the most amazing goodie bag! A huge thank you goes out to all the brands who contributed, I don't know where to start with all the products- I am currently painting my nails in Seche's Snapdragon in between typing paragraphs!
So, yet another wonderful event ticked off in my diary; it has definitely been a busy couple of months! As always it was lovely to catch up with my blogging friends as well as meet some pretty new faces. Thank you to Look Fantastic, All Sole, My Bag and the lovely ladies at The Hut Group for all the hard work they put in to planning the event!
