On Saturday I attended my first blogger meet-up in ages! I’ve been in and out of the blogging world for the last year or so, butfeel like I’m back in it now, with a head full of post ideas and trying not to forget about the twitter chats! Katy and Sam are two of the loveliest bloggers (Katy and I went the zoo together about 10 years a go don’t you know!) and they did amazingly well with this event. Not only did I leave with arms full of goodies (good work girls), but I left feeling 100% blessed that I had spent a Saturday afternoon in a gorgeous location with some amazing bloggers. I never thought when starting this over two years a go I’d have met anyone through blogging, let alone too many people to count!
I loved how I had never met anyone at the event before as I was thrown out of my comfort zone. Loads of us met at the station and I was so glad as I don’t think I’d have got to the venue without their help! We weren’t told where the event was, just given a list of directions, which was definitely a good ice breaker for us all! The Secret Warehouse is amazing – it looks like a disused warehouse from the outside, but inside it was gorgeous. Home to MUA’s, hair dressers and nail artists as well as make-up academies, Scouse Bird Probs herself and thai massage classes The Secret Warehouse is an amazing place I’d definitely look to when wanting any of the above. It also has a meditation suite and a studio you can book into to film and edit videos, as after all we know how important video blogs are!
There were some amazing prizes in the raffle, with all money (over £100 raised!) going to The Recovery Bag Project, which is such a worthy cause. It was lovely to see that everyone won a prize as when people won two they were giving their ticket to someone who hadn’t won. I managed to get an Oribe set with a shampoo, conditioner and masque. Having looked on Space NK the shampoo alone is £36 so looking forward to trying out all three products!
With plenty of cake, popcorn, chocolate and black water (big talking point) to go around we were all content watching a really interesting demonstration by Lush Liverpool. I even went to the Lush store in Liverpool once the event had finished and treated myself. We then had a talk from the lovely people from This Material Culture who make really cute, quirky jewellery. My favourite was definitely the Pizza necklace!
After lots of chats, laughs, photos, food and sitting in the rooftop garden I said my goodbyes and headed for the station, feeling so happy I was part of the event, but also made up for Katy and Sam who had spend months planning and organising it! Well done girls. X
