Bristol Blogger Meetup (#bbmeet) Pt 1 - The Day

Saturday was the day of the Bristol Blogger Meetup, organised by myself and the fabulous Alessia from Whispers from Angels. It was so surreal that after months and months of planning it finally arrived - it felt like it was never going to! It's safe to say that Alessia and I were nervous wrecks in the run up to the meetup!!

So many lovely and talented bloggers came along to the meetup and were a mix of fashion and beauty bloggers. It was so nice to meet everyone, although I flapped and flustered around a bit so I didn't quite get to talk to everyone as much as I'd have liked, or take as many photos as I'd have liked!

The day started in Frankie and Benny's in Cabot Circus, which gave everyone a chance to meet and chat while having a drink and a bite to eat. I have to mention the waitress allocated to our tables - she was absolutely fabulous! Before eating we kicked off the event with a giveaway to win two N-Spa beauty boxes, each containing a cleansing gel, hot cloth polish, serum and day cream. Alessia and I had brought along the list of attendees, so we put a number next to each name and the waitress randomly picked two numbers. Congratulations again to Jade and Roxy for winning!

Once the plates had been cleared away lots of the girls set about exchanging business cards and blog links, which was great. We then handed out our treats for the girls - a goody bag! I will do a separate post on the goody bag itself but you can peek at what's inside below.


Then we set about to do what we bloggers do best - SHOP! We all split up to do this as there were so many of us. Me and the gorgeous ladies I was with (Clair, Poppy, Becky, Carly and JJ) headed to New Look, Topshop, Superdrug, Boots, Lush and Debenhams. In Lush, Poppy was treated to some hand pampering, which resulted in quite a few of us buying the King of Skin Body Butter after feeling Poppy's super soft hand!! The sales assistant also generously gave us all a sample of Ro's Argan Oil Body Conditioner. 


After shopping quite a few of us met back up in Starbucks for a coffee, chat and to share what we had bought. The day went so quickly, but I enjoyed every single minute of it!

Me and Alessia!
Thank you to Roxy for letting me use this picture!

Thank you so much to everyone who came along! I'd also like to say thank you to:

- Alessia for being the most wonderful co-host and organiser!
- Frankie and Benny's for the fab customer service.
- Everyone involved in creating the goody bag (I'll list them separately in the second post).
- My boyfriend for putting up with me in the run up to the event!!

I'm so sorry if I've forgotten anyone!

Let's all do it again one day?

    1. The best place is probably Twitter and through other bloggers. There is a Twitter account for South West bloggers @SWBloggers, which I would recommend following :-) xx
