This Saturday I visited my first ever blogging event – The Bloggers Festival 2017 which was an amazing opportunity to meet many bloggers and brand representatives! I had the pleasure of going with two lovely girls – Hazel and Nicci. Thank you for having me in your company!
The event was hosted by Scarlett London.. in London 😀 at the The Conrad London St James Hotel. We were warmly welcomed by this huge insta worthy balloon wall and a glass of bubbly.
The set up was beautiful, everything was well thought of.. but to be fair, I didn’t enjoy the lighting very much. I mean, we are bloggers, we take tons of photos, and I had to brighten up every single one of mine, which decreased its quality a bit. But oh well, I guess I can live with that 😀
Here are a few brands that caught my eye!
Bear Hugs Gifts:
That’s a box which you can send to your loved ones – you can customize it as well, put some chocolate, a sweet note or a little gift. It’s like flowers, just a little bit more personal!
I see sparkles and I’m sold! The next table was covered with shiny jewellery and shoes, and the two girls over there were the sweetest! They gifted me a voucher for their store and I can’t wait to use it!
Next there was the 7th Heaven promoting their face masks, and the lovely lady gave us a tote bag with maybe 15!! masks inside. Girl, you literally stocked me up for life! There are various mud masks, pore strips, and even a few for my boyfriend! I can’t wait to try them all!
Time Of The Month’s value is ‘Be Kinder To Your Vagina‘. They were promoting their eco-friendly and cruelty free pads, liners and tampons made of 100% organic cotton. They also offer monthly deliveries starting at £2.95, so you don’t run out of feminine hygine products anymore!
As that was my first blogging event, I didn’t know what to expect. I was thinking there would be some new make up and skin care brands, plenty stuff that you can touch and try for the first time… maybe do some networking with other bloggers.
What I saw was people going in groups of 2 or 3, taking photos of each other, some of them doing videos (and looking completely apathetic at the same time, like the event was some kind of torture for them). I was maybe a liiiiitle bit disappointed that there were 2 stands for candles, 2 stands for charcoal products.. maybe I was hoping for some more diversity, you know. Some brands were showing us accessories (like bags or jewellery boxes), but even if we liked them, we couldn’t purchase any at the moment. There was also a stand with pills, and magazine subscription… I mean, that’s not something the majority of bloggers would be fascinated (in my opinion).
I’m not being harsh or negative, I’m just keeping it real. I loved the brands featured above though, they absolutely deserve your attention!
On the other hand, I’m extremely happy that I’ve had the chance to meet one of my favourite bloggers in real life – Mrs. S. LDN. I was just impressed how genuine and down to earth this lady was! Scalett, our host, was also super nice and kudos to her for organizing such a big event!
I can’t wait to show you all the goodies that we’ve got in our goodbye bags! Stay tuned for my next post. Thank you for reading,
