On Saturday, despite the snow and ice – Terri Lowe and I bundled ourselves up in our winter wears and made our way from the Antarctic (also know as Stoke) to the Birmingham Blogger Meet Up that was organised by the fabulous Gemma, Claire and Sarah.

Our army of beauty bloggers met at Starbucks at New Street station and we split up into three groups to have a wander around and do a bit of shopping – Hello Selfridges! (I’m not on a spending ban, but I managed to refrain from spending despite all of the temptations) We then headed over to a gorgeous Brazilian restaurant Rodizio Rico for some very tasty (and lethal) cocktails and mocktails for those who weren’t drinking. After some more chin wagging, we headed over for dinner at Red Peppers – home of the most handsome waiters in the world where we all got to chat some more, exchange business cards and laugh.a.lot.





Cocktails, food and cake – OHMY.
The beautiful cake extraordinaire Victoria’s Vintage surprised us all in the form of this mouth watering #bbloggers cake. Icing, sponge and buttercream = goooooooood.


With all of that demolished we picked up our amazing goodie bags courtesy of some of my favourite brands (and some new brands which I’m so excited to try!) including Macadamia hair, Jamela 24k gold Collagen Skincare, Herbalife, Neal and Wolf, Paul Mitchell, Revitalash, Rimmel, Elemis – we were well and truly spoiled!

I’m sure there will be some individual reviews of products making their way onto here soon, but one of the products that I “squee-d” about was this bad boy….


I’m about a year late to the They’re Real party, but I can’t wait to try it.
I headed home, full to the brim (and slightly tipsy) after an absolutely amazing day. It was so good to catch up with some of the ladies that I’ve met before and to also put faces to names of people I’ve spoken to on Twitter/blogs I’ve read and of course discovering brand new blogs!

Thank you so much to Gem, Claire and Sarah for organising and to the brands who sponsored the event – it was such a fun filled day but BOY did I sleep well on Saturday night.

Please take some time to check out the beautiful ladies who also attended the meetup and follow/stalk/tweet them because they’re all fabulous.
