#BloggersFestival: My First Blogger Event

So, on Saturday, I attended my first ever bloggers event which took place in Conrad London St. James (a really gorgeous hotel) and was organised by the lovely Scarlett from Scarlett London! I'd love to say a massive thank you to Scarlett and her team for making the day run so smoothly and for giving a blogger new to this side of the industry such an enjoyable and relaxed experience! I really would recommend any blogger who is a bit apprehensive about attending a bloggers event to do it! I had the best time and met some really great new blogger friends (which means more great content I can read) and also people you can talk about your passion with that understand it.

Honestly, I had no idea what to expect when I arrived... I signed my name off the list and headed straight for the table with champagne (of course) so I wasn't just standing on my own being awkward. There were lot's of people in groups waiting to go in but also people who had come on their own, like me, so it really was a mixture and don't let arriving on your own put you off. If anything, it forced me to approach and talk to people which is great for me because I love meeting new people!

Once we were let into the main rooms, it wasn't long before I got chatting to two lovely ladies, Rhianna and Hannah who were also new to the whole concept of 'bloggers events' and had come on their own too! We went round and met all the great brands that were showcasing their stuff together and I can honestly say I met two lovely new friends!

It was such a nice, relaxed environment and was so great to be able to mingle and chat to people with the same interest as me. It was so nice to be able to talk to people that blogged as well because they just understood it. I've never really spoken in person to a fellow blogger so that was really refreshing!

There were some really great brands there and it was so nice to be able to chat with their representatives to see how we could work together to allow you to get the most out of their products. Some of my favourites, which I am planning to go into more detail about at a later date, were:

I am absolutely obsessed with the gorgeous jewellery boxes and storage from Stackers!

Something I really love about their products is the colours. Oh my, the colours are all so beautiful. They've stuck to neutral tones with lots of nudes, blushes, greys and (of course) white marble which are all colours I love. They were kind enough to gift me the Grey Cone Jewellery Peak which sits so perfectly in my white and grey room (eek, I love it so much!) 

I will be doing a more in-depth post about why I love Stackers so much so keep your eyes peeled for that one!

Of course, as soon as I saw Trilogy were there I knew I had to go and speak to them. As I'm sure you're well aware, I suffer from acne, eczema and dry skin and can only really use 100% natural ingredients on my skin. This is why Triology is so great because they are 100% natural!

I have written about how I use natural oils before and I'm really excited to review some of Trilogy's products so you can hear more about how they work with my problem skin.

I really did have such a great time at the Bloggers Festival and I am definitely going to be going to more events by Scarlett because I thoroughly enjoyed myself  meeting new people that shared some of my passions. If you're interested in going along to the next event, make sure to follow Scarlett on Twitter as that's where she posts updates!

I can't wait for the next one!
