Last Monday, I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the Bloggers Hangout LFW Beauty Bar in Shoreditch. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was excited to attend my first blogging event in London. The upstairs of Beach Blanket Babylon was filled with brands and bloggers, with City Swish (pictured above) giving massages in the middle of the room! I didn’t have one myself, but it looked really relaxing.
The well-known gel nail brand Sensationail were there, telling us all about their products and letting bloggers try them out. We each got given a Sensationail starter set to take home and review, which I can’t wait to try! They are launching a sister brand called L.A.B.² for makeup brushes, and I got given a lovely set to review.
My favourite gift from the event is definitely my Pink Parcel! They’re a new company that deliver monthly boxes for your period containing tampons / pads (whichever you prefer) of your usual brand, some tea, some chocolate, and some other lovely things like makeup to make you feel better during your time of the month. I definitely want to sign up to this service, and the first box is only £7.95. Even my mum wants to join!
I’d never heard of Shea Moisture products before, but they sound ideal for me! I mentioned previously that I try to use natural, paraben/sulfate-free hair products for my curls, so I was so excited to try out the product they gave me! The coconut and hibiscus curl enhancing smoothie smells amazing, I’ll do a full review soon.
Despite being incredibly nervous about attending alone and not knowing anyone there, I did have a good time! I met some lovely people, particularly the ladies at Shea Moisture, and got lots of samples to try. I had planned to film a university room tour for my YouTube channel, but my room is filled with beauty products at the moment! I’ll review everything ASAP, and thank-you to Bloggers Hangout for organising the event!
