Last Saturday I went to my second bloggers hangout event and this time it was even more special than the last – The Bloggers Hangout were celebrating their 3rd birthday – so as you can imagine I was so excited to see what they had in store for us!
What I love most about these events is meeting bloggers that I talk to on Twitter, it just makes the blogging thing seem a little more real lol.
Anyway, Laura from LauraLivingLife and I headed to the venue held in a small gallery in Charing Cross. We could spot it a mile off… bloggers, nice vibes, plus with the weather being so nice and London Pride taking place, it was definitely looking to be a chilled and friendly atmosphere.
Once we got in we were greeted with so many brands, a little overwhelmed (and flushed) we decided to start from downstairs and work our way up.
The first thing we set our eyes on was food… more specifically sweets!
Oh Crumbs! offered a range of lovely marshmallows, that I literally wolfed down as I was feeling a bit heady from the night before (why do i do this to myself?)
Next was Pink Parcel. I’ve heard of this brand before, but never really known what it offered, except the obvious (a monthly subscription that comes in time for your monthly period), however, it’s so much more than what it says on the tin… or the parcel 😎
Pink Parcel gives us ladies a chance to indulge and somewhat enjoy our monthly cycles, with cool treats that they put inside each box. Each parcel contains tea to help with cramps, a sweet treat to indulge in when the cravings come, a range of beauty products and of course pads and tampons.
Pink Parcel, also gave us the chance to make our own personalised box too – check mine out!
That was it for downstairs, so we made our way all the way up (if you know, you know!)
Regenerate greeted us first and honestly was the brand I was most pleased about coming into contact with.
When I was younger I was obsessed with my teeth, I just wanted them to be straight and clean, which is why I longed for braces and brushed them 3 times a day (I was such a nerd). Now, I know it probably wasn’t the most sensible thing to do, as too much brushing can wear away enamel, promoting sensitivity, which is something I suffer with now.
Luckily for me Regenerate is a toothpaste that repairs enamel, reversing damaging effects.
Sold in Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Boots and many more beauty retailers I knew the was a brand I could trust (as well as doing my own research).
Regenerate was kind enough to give us two treats – one Enamel Science Advanced Toothpaste & an Enamel Science Boosting Serum Kit, which should be used one a month.
I’ve only used the toothpaste once so far, so cannot give a in depth review, but I’m pleased with how it left me feeling so far… have you tried these products?
The venue was boiling and my makeup was literally sliding off my face, so I was parched. Luckily there was a cool drinks brand called Cocktail Mania, serving alcoholic slushies (not that I needed anymore alcohol) – let me tell you their Mango Crazy was lush – check them out, they’re based in Old Kent Road and do everything from slushies to milkshakes, looking to be a great summer hangout spot!
Mingling in a bit further, I found the cutest store – Sass and Belle. I must be the only person who has never heard of this brand before, but it’s right up my street. They sell ‘the little things in life’ – cups, frames, notebooks..just those little pretty things, you and I could never say no to. Plus they have a store in Clapham Common which is literally 30 mins away – they can add another customer to their fan base!
The Blogger Hangout Summer event/ 3rd birthday was a blast, and I had a good time with my girl laura even though I was hanging and my feet were burning lol – who told me to wear heels?!
If you went to The Bloggers Hangout, let me know how you found it, and your most favourite brand discovery x
