It's been a hectic week to say the least, filled with absolutely crazy amounts of uni work, lots of interest in my blog from exciting people, and winning tickets to the Handpicked Media Gets Social tomorrow which I am extremely excited for! I'm going with Annabel, meeting up with Jemma who I met yesterday, and hopefully Charlotte too! Cant wait to have a bit of a natter, take full advantage of the free breakfast (!!!) and hopefully learn lots from all the guest speakers. I'm wearing the same thing as I wore yesterday (mega tramp) so I will post an OOTD up tomorrow, dont judge, I have a student budget to work with!
Yesterday I had a great time at the London Christmas Bloggers Meet Up, organised by the beautiful Law and Emma. It was held in a gorgeous pub just off Regents Street which I'm definitely going to take my housemates too as it was so nicely decorated and had a lovely festive feel. It was a great afternoon filled with gossiping with Annabel and Mary, aswell as some talks from really interesting girls. First was Sarah from Lush, who talked us through the new Christmas range and gave us the chance to smell and sample all the new bits (its delicious!). Second was Maggie Angus Jewellery, and third, Wired Jewellery who showed some of their beautiful ranges and explained the best ways to start your own mini businesses, which I found particularly interesting due to my phonecases.
Unfortunately I am a massive doofus and took my camera but not my memory card so couldnt take any photos, but when Annabel has uploaded hers I will steal them all and update this!
The cherry on top of a great day was the amazing goody bags filled with Lush, Maggie Angus, Wired Jewellery and some makeup bits from Very, which we got to take home!
Leaf bracelet - Bang On Vintage
Chalkboard Ring - Wired Jewellery
Mechanics Ring - Wired Jewellery
Wolf Ring - Maggie Angus
I'll do a specific Lush post once I've tested them all out. I'm particularly excited to use all of these as I've never used anything from Lush before as I've always been a bit intimidated by the shops as the smells are so overwhelming! But Sarah's talk yesterday has really inspired me to give it a go!
Finally, my giveaway finishes at midnight tonight! Dont miss your chance to win a handmade customised phonecase to your design :)
Dont forget my giveaway! :)
