The Bloggers Hangout - Bloggers Fashion Week Event 2016

Hey all! Apologies for the lack of posts :( I have been feeling so unmotivated to blog recently but I am getting out of that mentality and hopefully I will get back in to it! This post is to tell you about The Bloggers Hangout : Bloggers Fashion Week Event I attended last Momday. I have been to a Bloggers Hangout Event on my jack jones before so this time it was really lovely to go along with some of the lovely ladies I have met through blogging! (LauralivingLife, ShannonKara and RianneMitchell - check their blogs out!). It was lovely to also run into a few bloggers that I speak to on Twitter and Instagram..!


There were lots of bloggers in attendance and so many brands... I didn't really know where to turn. From attending one of these events before, I knew that this could quickly become a bit overwhelming!  There is always a danger of trying to go to every stand which can quickly become very tiring...also with so many brands it is hard to really interact with other bloggers. One of the reasons I am glad I went with the girls! There were lots of brands showcasing their products and also some brands offering treatments and hair services- some I had heard of before, some I hadn't. There was also a fashion show during the event with brands showcasing their designs...



I was lucky to have been gifted some lovely products from a select few of the brands in attendance!*


Skin care: 

Weleda - I am excited to try the skin food by Weleda because Queen Victoria Beckham uses it.. *welp*.. and we know how much I LOVE her! The cream is meant to be for dry skin and I am going to try it out as a night cream. Word on the street is that Adele and Rihanna use this too.. #justsaying

PurePotions - this brand produces all natural, Vegan skin care products, I am looking forward to trying the scar oil mostly!

Nails:

SensatioNail- I already have the Sensational gel nail kit and it is great if you don't want to spend a fortune on getting your nails done at the salon. The ladies at SensatioNail were super lovely and they gifted me with their new Polish to Gel transformer that will change any existing nail polish you have into a gel polish! I am excited to try this with my fave nail polish: OPI Dulce de Leche!

ThumbsUp- I was looking on when people were having these nail wraps applied on the day and it looked so easy to do! I don't know if it will be that easy when I try it out but I really like the different prints available.

Other products:

Kenneth Turner: This brand has a range of products that includes, hand lotions, room sprays and candles. Their stand smelt amazing! I am a fan of fresh smelling scents so anything cotton/linen and light florals and I am involved! The Celebration room cologne smells amazing!

Curl Company : I was drawn to this stand because their advertising featured women of colour with natural curls! I literally never try new hair products.. Shea Moisture works for me and I am terrified of trying something else but I will definitely give this a go and let you know how I find it!

Berry White : This is an organic drinks brand... The sample I tasted was lovely.

Lab2: You may have seen the Lab2 brushes in some of my posts - these were my go to before I turned to Morphe brushes- they are super soft, affordable and cruelty free! The brand have now bought out a few beauty blenders. I recently tore my Real Techniques blending sponge so it will be great to try this one out.

Codes! 

Magnitone where on hand demonstrating their facial brush.. omg guys... the brushes are ridiculously soft and since Monday I have found out that these brushes are a blogger favourite. I think I may have to invest in one! Magnitone provided us with a code for anyone who is interested in purchasing one: if you put BUZZOFF into their coupon code section you get £20 of any Magnitone product!

Kenneth Turner also provided us with a code... BLOG20 gets you 20% off any Kenneth Turner product.



* All products mentioned are PR samples that were gifted to me at the event by these brands. None of these brands asked me, coerced me or paid me to write about their items ;) I was required to write about the event by the Bloggers Hangout.
