Hey! Last weekend I attend the #NottsBloggerMeet hosted by the lovely Becka and Sophie. I can't thank them enough for such a great, well organised day.
We all met up in Zizzi's for a spot of lunch (I had possibly the world's largest pizza!), and the tables were all set out lovely with cute cupcake boxes with handmade biscuits inside!
During lunch also had a couple of brands visiting us. The first was Harlequin Cosmetics and Becky told us all about her small family run business of handmade soaps, lip balms, body butters etc while we were smelling the wondrous goods (my favourite was the Citrus Burst shower gel) and made sure we all left with samples to try! The other brand visiting was Charmed Ivy, who set out a selection of their handmade jewellery for us to admire and/or purchase.
After lunch, we all set off shopping (with our giant goodie bags in tow), and boy was there some shopping done! I picked up a bumble and bumble hair mask to try out, a new Seventeen pencil sharpener (my previous 7-8 year old one finally broke), a Models Own nail corrector pen and Barry M Nail Art Pen in Boots 3 for 2, and a gorgeous blue tote bag from New Look. I've also included some other recent purchases I've made: La Roche Posay skincare purchases, La Tentacion de Nina perfume and new spring jumpers, because the arrival of the new season doesn't mean the weather is miraculously better!
The contents of our large goodie bags! (So large we had to cheekily ask Space NK for large bags, because the originals were all splitting!)
What have you been up to/buying recently?
