Helloooo everyone!

As you know from last week I went to the amazing #BloggersFestival, organised by Scarlett London with the help of Search Laboratory and Want Her Dress. Of course with meeting loads of brands, you get to be kindly gifted with a few goodies – and some prizes if you’re lucky – to get to know products better and broaden your beauty/fashion horizons.

Lugging home two pretty full bags, I thought it would be necessary to share with you all the kindly gifted treats from this wonderful event (and I also really needed to unpack all the bags out my room!)

Now I was very lucky to win the Crosley Keepsake Turntable and four records thanks to Urban Outfitters, and so far it’s been a great piece to play with – there were some issues with the turntable platter, but thanks to some tutorials I got it fixed; more on that another time though. I have two favourite records so far: Awake by Tycho and World Psychedelic Classics 3: Love’s a Real Thing – definitely felt like I was abroad with this record!

I also won the Murad Prize which contained their Refreshing Cleanser, Blackhead and Pore Clearing Duo and Balancing Moisturiser with Broad Spectrum SPF15 PA++. I am so excited to trial these as I love a good, deep cleaning mask and anything that keeps oil and spots at bay.

The lovely girls at Search Laboratory provided a great goody bag with a link to their SEO advice and some little sugary treats – including my fave childhood lollipops! I also picked up a pen or two because you always need pens, and I’m always leaving them around the house for notes and lists galore.

In our main event bag from Scarlett, we were kindly treated to an Anti-Ageing Facial Oil and Hydrating Firming Serum from Green People – which is full of loads of natural ingredients including Chamomile, Seaweed, Avocado and Rosehip, a Triple Core Lipstick in Dazzling Plum from THE ONE by Oriflame which is yet to be released, a Celluence Phase Two Concentrated Body Cream, and a small bottle of Blue Nun White Wine – just for when the weekend arrives 😉

From the stands, Quiz Clothing provided a bag containing a preview of their new collection, a pretty dress biscuit, pen and 10% off any purchases through the app, whilst Lee Stafford gave us the My Big Fat Silky Smoother Brush with Extra Oomfness to make our blow-dries even bigger – anything that gives me some body is good in my books!

From Very.co.uk, we received a lovely canvas bag with a £10 Gift Voucher, a bracelet or necklace, and a copy of the Very magazine with OK! – so generous and their new season partywear and SS15 planned collection just looks insane. Some of my favourite pieces came from Minimum Fashion and ECCO, with a gorgeous small leather pouch purse from ECCO and a brand slogan tank from Minimum inside each blogger bag for us to enjoy, whilst Want Her Dress and Izabelle Hammon shared their products including a detailed size guide for dressing to your shape and nails wraps to experiment with, and Bee Good supplied each blogger with a nourishing and natural Honey and Vanilla Lip Balm which I absolutely love love love! I need to stock up on more pronto.

The amount of treats and goodies each brand put forward is amazing; all are of course worth a bit of dolla so it was lovely that everyone who attended was able to sample them for free. As for the prizes I won, I have to thank Scarlett and Urban Outtfitter‘s teams for picking me out the hat for that – totally made my day!

I seriously cannot wait to attend more blog events, and to hopefully meet up with more lovely bloggers in the future.

Are you a fan of any of these brands? What blog events have you been to? Are you a record player enthusiast?

Lots of Love,
