Soton Meetup - May 2014

14 comments



This post is a very overdue post and I'm really not sure why it's taken me so long to post it! Back in May I attend a bloggers meetup in Southampton organised by Alice and Amy, I must say they did an amazing job because I had a fab day!

At around 1, 22 of us met up at Orange Rooms in Southampton, which led to drinks and chatting in the sun, the weather really helped the day! After getting to know each other a bit we went upstairs to the area where we would be eating! I sat with Tori, Marina and Gemma, it was lovely to get to know other local bloggers who actually know what you're talking about as my friends are oblivious to the blogging world!
Soon after we went upstairs, the food arrived! It was amazing, if you're ever in Southampton go to the Orange Rooms to eat, it all looked and smelt delicious! I had the Nacho Chicken Wrap and it's definitely a favourite of mine now. After the food there was a raffle with various prizes, and then goody bags were handed out, I was shocked at the amount of stuff that could be put into a bag, they were jam packed!


The goody bags were full of products from range of different companies:
Little Forest Soap
Metique
Argan Dew
Pillbox Chemists
Batiste
Tea Pigs
Metcalfes Skinny
Lush Cosmetics
The Body Shop - Southampton
NSPA
Benefit Cosmetics
Manuka Doctor
Oh!Organics
Miners Cosmetics
Beauty UK
Lylia Rose
Oloves
Decleor
Topshop - Southampton
E.L.F Cosmetics
I was so excited to try everything in the goody bags, and I really haven't been disappointed! There will be lots of reviews to follow this post! 
Overall, it was a really nice day and I don't think it could've been any better which made me feel better about blogger events as this was my first one! Everyone was so lovely and I really enjoyed getting to know people. Thanks for a fab day everyone!
