Event - Birmingham Blogger Meet April #brumbloggermeet

2:07:00 pm

I love it when meet ups and events are somewhere I have never been before with people I have never met before as it helps me to explore new places and meet new people, but the comfort of a meet up being close to home with people you have met before is so lovely, especially when you have been super busy and are very tired.  With all this in mind attending the Brum Blogger Meet was a delight.  Sara from Pretty in Pink, Hayley from Strangeness and Charm and Chloe from Unwritten Hollywood all did a fantastic job of organising a really fun day!

Hayley, Sara and Chloe!
 We started the day in the usual meeting place, Starbucks where we all had a little catch up which was lovely as I dont see all the local based bloggers as much as I would like to.  After all meeting at Starbucks Charl from Ginger Girl Says, Amy from PYT and Charlotte from Lil Miss Chickas went a little wander to Greggs in the sunshine because we had all forgotten to eat in the morning and were really hungry.

We then made our way to Selfridges for a guided tour around the ladies wear department, I was glad to see a new Primark ladieswear concession as I can't stand the Primark in Birmingham as its always a mess and cues out the door, so from now on I will definitely be checking out Selfridges first.  I also seen the most beautiful white and black polka dot dress that I need in my summer wardrobe!

Finishing the day in Bar Room Bar was a treat, cold cocktails were just what I needed after a day walking around the city.  Unfortunately the waiter assigned to our table was extremely rude and not very helpful but there was far to many things going on for that to be a problem!

Talks from Shani from John Lewis, Wendy from Benefit Cosmetics and Elijah from Bodhi were very interesting and it was great to hear of exciting new launches from all three speakers.  Wendy has some treats in store for us Birmingham based bloggers so make sure you keep your eyes open for news from Benefit.

 Elijah from Bodhi is just amazing, he is so lovely, I really enjoyed speaking to him as his products have changed my life, and its always lovely when someone recognises you from a twitter picture!  This was a really enjoyable part of the day and something I have never seen at a meet up I have been to.

Throughout the day we were given little quiz sheets to fill in to be entered into a draw to win some amazing prizes and guess what....

I won the amazing ENRAPTURE JUMBO WAVER!

We all had a really good day, I love seeing all the bloggers based locally they are all such babes!  We were all treated to
lovely jam packed goodie bags which I will be posting separately about due to the massive number of items inside!

Lucky Ladies we are!

Lots of Love
