I love a blogger meet up, I love bloggers, I love chatting, I love mingling, so they’re the perfect event for me! A few weeks ago, the lovely Laura of Lola and Behold, organised a blogger meet up in Brighton, held at the Globe pub (78 Middle Street). Laura was the first blogger I actually met IRL, a few years ago at a boutique opening in Brighton, and I also attended the very first meet up she organised, back in April 2013, which was super lovely. The 2016 version was also super lovely and it was really great to catch up with some old and familiar friendly faces, as well as meet some lovely new ones too. At the event, there were representatives from a few brands, including Homage, Snact and Pure Potions. I probably didn’t get to chat to the representatives as much as I should have because I was nattering at a gazillion MPH, however Laura organised a really nice, easy (non cringe) ice breaker activity which was a great way to quickly get to know a lot of the people in the room.
As well as the Twitter comps running throughout the afternoon, Laura also organised a really great raffle, with prizes donated by a couple of different brands. The proceeds of the raffle were going towards the Grassroots Suicide Prevention charity; a really important charity as there’s always more that can be done to raise awareness, of which £100 was raised at the event, which is AMAZING.
We also left the event with an amazing goody bag, featuring products from Anatomicals, Bee Good, Bio Oil, Body Fantasies, Chill*, Collagen Drinks, Estechoc, Funkin Cocktails, Green People, Homage, Metcalfes Skinny, Minty Coco, MooGoo, Pure Potions, Snact, Stigu, Tasty Little Numbers, Ufit and Wick Hove. And if you fancy 20% off of Chroma Stationery, used the code ‘BLGGER2’.
It was also super lovely to catch up with the usual babes, Lauren, Laura, Lilla, Rosie, Pippa, Hannah and her sister Beth, as well as finally meet Georgia, Alice, Katie, Holly, Sam and everyone else (sorry, awful with names..)
Have you ever been to a Blogger meet up before? This year I REALLY want to organise a Berkshire one in Reading, ahh!
