The #NottsBBMeet!

I'm sure you've seen plenty of posts on it already but in case you didn't know, Saturday was the Nottingham Beauty Blogger Meetup! It was the first time that I'd ever been to a blogger meetup and I was super nervous - but everyone was so so friendly that I don't know what I was worried for! I traveled down on the train with the lovely Charlotte from littlemisschickas and Gemma from Button's Blog - such amazing people by the way, check them out if you haven't already!! - and met up with the rest of the bloggers in Nottingham town centre.
Sophia had it all planned down to a T and made sure - with the help of Aiimee, Jessie and Sophie (I think that's everyone!?) - that we were all okay and that we got everywhere on time. The day consisted of shopping in Nottingham city centre and also a trip to Kiehl's for champagne, cupcakes and a skin consultation! I'd never actually had a skin consultation so it was really interesting to find out exactly what my skin type was (normal-combination, thanks to super dry cheeks and a slightly oilier t-zone!) and also to have a try of some of Kiehl's products. I now reaaaaalllllllyyyyyyyyyyy want their Midnight Recovery Concentrate!

After a long day shopping (and with our bank balances being considerably lighter!) we headed up to TGI Friday's for the meal. As with the day, Sophia has planned everything to perfection and we were all greeted with absolutely MASSIVE gift bags full or products as well as a separate Liz Earle good bag too! I was particularly excited for the Liz Earle products as I've been after their Cleanse and Polish for a long time now! All of the brands that were involved have been so so generous and I can't wait to try all of the products out!
Sophia had also taken the time out of her day to make us all little nail polish bottle and lipstick biscuits which were so yummy that I completely forgot to photograph them - she really is a lady of many talents! Everything about the meals was super personalised which was a lovely touch - she gave us our own little place cards and wrote us all a thank you card which she put in the press packs that she had put together to go with our gift bags. I don't know how much time that must have taken her to do but I'm so grateful of the time and effort she put into making the even a success, and I know everyone else is too!

As well as all of the amazing things that I've mentioned so far, there were also giveaways during the meals where our place cards were put into a bowl and picked out at random to win a lovely variety of products. I was lucky enough to win this lovely Rosehip Face Lifting Serum from Lulu & Boo which I've used every night since getting it, and have well and truly fallen in love with it!
Since getting home I've been able to have a good rummage through the goody bags and here are a few products which I am particularly excited about! I'd already mentioned before that I was super excited about trying out the Liz Earle products at last, but I'm also astounded at what amazing brands were lovely enough to get involved. I've been on the hunt for a shampoo and conditioner to love and I've heard so many positive things about Neal & Wolf so I'm really excited to give their Daily Ritual Cleansing Shampoo a try. And a full-sized bottle of Benefit's Porefessional?! There were definitely a few squeaks when people pulled that out of their bag!

Anyway, I'm sure you've seen enough #NottsBBMeet posts to last you a lifetime so I'll save you having to read any more. It was so lovely to meet everyone and I feel like I've made some really good friends that I'll hopefully stay in touch with! Thanks again to Sophia and everyone else who helped organise it - you've all done an amazing job and I can't wait to see you all again soon!
