Bloggers Boutique!

Today I attended the fabulous Blogger's Boutique event! I was invited aaaaages ago, and only just realised on Thursday that it was today! It was such a rush going shopping for an outfit, and the Zara dress I had my heart set on was sold out :( but I made it in the end and made do with this neon number! I met up with the lovely Drea beforehand, and after tripping over in our heels about 10 times, facing the disastrous wind which definitely wanted me to flash everyone, chasing my hat down the road and walking the complete wrong way, we finally found our way to the incredible Drift Bar in London. It was tough but we made it!

We were greeted by the lovely Shope and Shore and it was pretty empty when we arrived, but we swiftly got ourselves to the bar! I had to make do with a vodka lemonade because I couldn't afford the cocktails! (or in other words I refused to pay £7/8 for one drink, sorry Drift Bar but your prices are ridiculous!).

After sitting down chatting for a little bit the talks started pretty much straight away, there were several companies talking about their products including Motel, Internacionale, Myface Cosmetics, Lauren's Way and Filthy Gorgeous which were really interesting. I especially loved seeing exclusive new clothes Motel will be releasing soon. I have my heart set on a pair of white floral jeans and with the free £20 voucher everybody got, as soon as I can buy them I will!

It was reeeeeally weird seeing the faces behind lots of the blogs I read, but so nice to meet them in person! There were quite a few girlies that recognised me and it was so lovely to meet some of my followers (i'm so bad with remembering names but I have photos of them!!). I met... Alice, MantensoLiv, Addie, Risa, Yvonne, and quite a few more but I forgot their links! If I met you please comment below! :) 

One of the best parts of the day was the goodie bags! The girls definitely put a LOT of effort in getting them together, they were absolutely jam packed with beauty products! We got stuff from Lauren's Way fake tan, HD brows, Famous cosmetics, false eyelashes, nail polishes, Witch stick and concealer, a bikini waxing kit, spray tan in a can, face mask, earrings, lots of random bits of make-up and best of all... A £20 voucher for Motel Rocks! It is the most fabulous goodie bag I have ever received!

Aaaaaand you won't believe it... I WON IN THE RAFFLE! Everyone who went was automatically entered, and I only went and won a bag of Benefit make-up didn't I?! I DIED!!! Literally, I wanted to scream, I never win anything. And Benefit is my all time favourite make-up brand. I still can't believe it. YAY! Someone else's name was actually pulled out the bag before mine, but by the time they did the raffle half of the people had left, otherwise someone else would have won. It was fate, me and Benefit were meant to be!! :)

So a big big thank you and congrats to Shore, Shope and Amy for organising such a fabulous event, I will definitely be attending any future events they may plan! Now for the photos...
