Shropshire Blogger Meet

On Friday night after work, I made the trek up to Shropshire to see Kirsty from Just A Little Bit Ginger and attend the Shropshire Blogger Meet on Saturday. It took me over 4 hours to get there because of the bank holiday weekend and road works going on. What a nightmare!

It was completely worth it though obviously! I got to see Kirsty again but I also met some other lovely bloggers on the Saturday. We arrived at the Two Henrys Pub half an hour early so we could set up! We had one table for the raffle and Sarah’s Stella and Dot pieces, and one table for the popcorn and the buffet.

For the first hour we networked and waited for everyone to arrive. Then we sat down and had a talk by a Smashbox representative which was great. I learnt a lot and we got a little primer sample to try but I think I lost mine. I also want their new contour sticks, they are amazing!

We then enjoyed a lovely buffet and chatted some more. Then Kirsty did her raffle, it was definitely the best raffle I have ever seen so I bought 10 tickets and my name ended up being pulled out 5 times! £10 well spent I think. Of course I didn’t take 5 prizes as that would simply be greedy, plus Kirsty put a cap on how many you could win at 2. I chose the Dusty Girls gift set which was beautifully packaged in a  tin bucket which had 3 of their products in and the other one I chose was a set of 3 The Library of Fragrance colognes! I will be doing separate posts on these, plus I won another fragrance on The Library of Fragrance’s Instagram so I will pop that in there too. It was a very lucky weekend for me!

The raffle of course sparked more conversation as everyone was looking at what each other won! There were some really great prizes, Kirsty did so well.

We also had a couple more speakers, Sarah from Everything You Don’t Need To Know About Sarah spoke about her Stella and Dot pieces and the great parties you can have. I loved that all the pieces were so versatile and you can wear their pieces in so many ways. I also fell in love with one of their clutch bags, so I might have to order one!!

The second speaker was Chelsea from Loving Life In Wellies who is a full time blogger and gave us some of her top blogging tips! I’m going to keep those to myself though but I’m sure Chelsea will help you out if you give her a shout.

It was only my second meet up but it was such a great few hours and Kirsty did an amazing job organising and hosting it! She’s already made plans for a West Midlands Blogger Meet which I cannot wait for! I’m her voluntary assistant! I’m going to be trekking half way up the country for it!

I can’t recommend going to blogger meets enough, you meet so many like minded people and I’ve made some really great friends out of it. Next stop, Centerparcs!
