Sometimes it seems as though all the blogger action is going on in London, doesn't it? It's always nice to get an opportunity to go to an event that's locally based, so I jumped at the chance to head down to the #swbloggersmeet, which was held last weekend in Exeter and organised by Liza from Glam Beautys and Kerry from Lived with Love.
I headed down to the event with the very lovely Amy from Amy Loves and we spent the whole journey nattering about cosmetics and blogging and all things girly. At Exeter station we met up with Tasha from Elsie Delilah and Emily from Pretty Please and we headed off to find the venue together. All three girls are such, such lovely ladies and it was an absolute pleasure spending the day with them. All of their blogs are 100% worth a read so do stop by and check them out! Emily was recording her first vlog throughout the day, so that was pretty exciting, look out for my mug popping up in it every now and then!
The event itself was held in a gorgeous little cocktail bar in Exeter and we had the whole upstairs to ourselves, which was a really nice touch. Lush were there with their Christmas collection and we spent a while sniffing everything in sight and running up pretty big wishlists! I took a catalogue with me and have promptly circled almost everything in there...oops.
It was such a refreshing change to be in a room of fifty or so girls and have every single one supporting the other with no trace of jealousy or bitchiness. Go girls!
As if the event itself wasn't enough we were even given amazing goodie bags to go away with, which were stuffed with a mixture of luxe samples and full sized products that I cannot wait to get stuck into - so do look out for reviews of some of these coming soon.
I want to say a huge thank you to Kerry and Liza for organising such a brilliant day - it was lovely to meet so many bloggers I've been chatting to and following for so long. Roll on the next one!
