06.09.2014 Bluewater Meet Up

Hello there;

On the 5th September I made a long drive down south (3 hours 30 mins away) to go meet a few girls. Sounds silly right? HA you are wrong. I had the most amazing weekend. When I arrived at my hotel, checked in and dumped my bags in my room, I hot footed it to the ever so grand Bluewater shopping centre in Dartford. I met Julie after work and we went for a cheeky Nandos and a wander about the centre. The day after myself and Julie met at 12 and set up Browns in Bluewater. Brown is an absolutely stunning restaurant. I was so impressed with how the room looked and how friendly the staff were. Defiantly check it out if you are in Bluewater. The food is amazing!

Browns had already set the table for us, we just had to do the decorating.

Goodie bags!
All the girls were going to be coming between 1 and 2. Personally I was so nervous but so excited at the same time. Julie had organised such an lovely event and I hoped everyone was going to be as impressed as me! 

After everyone getting to know each other, a few drinks later we ordered some food.

These chips were so filling! Really yummy though.
Everyone taking photos of their food :')
The food looked so amazing, very reasonable priced for the amount that you got and it was so well presented. We all chowed down in-between chats about blogging, make up and just general chit chat. The atmosphere was amazing, everyone was talking and getting on so well. It was amazing hearing every ones "blog stories", how they started and how long they had been blogging. Sharing experiences is the best way to learn I think so I was taking it all on board.

The only person I didn't get a photo of is the stunning Chelsey, as she had to go back to work. I will link every ones blogs and you tubes below.

At 4pm, I left the meet as I had to get back home. Which I managed to do in just under 3 hours. The motorway should defiantly be 80mph... I was so worried about my drive home, as I had a panic attack in my car the evening before the meet day. But all the well wishes from the girls at the meet helped me and the drive was sooo easy. Now here's comes the impressive bit. I didn't look in my goodie bag until I got home! I know I'm proud of myself too.


I LOVE how orange the bag is. So pleased I got this one. I know you don't care about the bag and want to know whats inside. Hold your horses. I need to do a quick sorry. These next two photos are rubbish. The battery on my camera was dying so I had to do two quick snaps, and they are both a little out of focus.... Forgive me please?



So many goodies and samples. I am SO impressed with these bags. I have nothing to compare them too obviously but if I ever get another one. Boy they have some competition. Can't wait to start trying out all the products and samples! 

I would just like to take this moment to say a massive thank you to Julie. She kinda planned this around my holiday off work so I could make it down and I am so grateful for that. I had the most amazing time. It was fantastic meeting you, you was so welcoming and friendly. I am very proud of what you achieved in such a short time.
