Sunday saw me heading up to London with my blogging partner in crime, aka my little sister Ashleigh.
We were heading to The Danubius Hotel Regents Park for the #BigBloggerExpo organised by LDNmeetup’s Lauren and Abi. Once again the girls outdid themselves and arranged another fab blogging event.
The premis of this event was to meet with brands whilst making connections for future collaboration opportunities and to meet and chat with other bloggers. There was also a fundraising element to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation. One of my favourite things about LDNmeetup is they like to give back. In fact this weekend several bloggers are volunteering at Race for Life Hyde Park providing essential support in the running of the event.
When we arrived we were signed in and each given a stamp card with all the brands we would be meeting listed. We then were free to collect the stamps from each brand and would recieve a goody bag if we filled our card. I think this is a great idea as it means you don’t accidentally miss out on meeting any of the brands. I’m also a kid at heart and liked collecting the stamps. It reminded me of the merit stamps your teacher would give for good work at school.
The event was sponsored by some excellent brands including Jewellerybox.co.uk, a London based online company specialising in real jewellery at costume jewellery prices. They have some super cute designs that arrive beautifully gift packages.
Bouroughbox, another sponsor, are an exciting company that offer a monthly subscription service delivering artisan food products straight to your door. This is one for foodies as there are so many exciting and unique brands included. I’m desperate to sign up but sadly can’t afford it at the moment. (Fingers crossed I get the job I’m interviewing for next week, then I might be able to)
So many exciting brands were exhibiting on the day, too many to feature in one blog post. They included Dr Paw Paw, Living Proof, Heaven skincare, Westlab, Instant Effects, Bonnie Boo Gifts and many many more.
All the brands were very generous and gifted us with lots of samples to try so do keep your eye out for my reviews that will follow over the next couple of weeks.
For now though I will leave you with some pictures of the event.
Don’t forget to look out for the upcoming product reviews.
