#SotonMeetup


On Saturday I hopped onto a train and headed off to the #sotonmeetup. I'd been to two before (read about them HERE), both hosted by the lovely Alice & Amy, so I knew I was in for a treat. The event was held in the beautifully refurbished Revolution, a noticeably less orange venue from the previous two meet ups haha.

I quickly abandoned my diet, helping myself to the FREE Jude's Ice Cream, Cake Cetera Cake Pops and Love Cake Cupcakes (calories don't count if you eat them in a different town right?). We were also treat to appearances from Hairfinity, Out Come the Wolves and Espa (a blogger favourite), who gave us all a mini skin consultation and free samples!

Alice & Amy even set up a selfie station, gave out generous goodie bags and hosted an amazing Raffle. Prizes included London Fashion Week tickets, £50 West Quay vouchers and a pink Instax Mini! We managed to raise a whopping £350 for the Epilepsy Society, which I know Alice & Amy are chuffed about. 
I loved catching up with Sophie from the last event, and Sam who I met at the LUSH Basingstoke event last month. The afternoon flew by and I got to meet lots of lovely new bloggers including Hannah from Floral Inspired Life and Kristina. It was a fab opportunity to talk to people who love doing what I do, nattering away about cameras, beauty and #bbloggerproblems.
Even though we all went away with matching forehead bruises from hitting our heads on the low lights, it was such a fun event! My personal highlights were meeting one of my favourite bloggers, Kirstie (who was wearing the most uh-mazing midi skirt) and winning a gorgeous, handmade floral crown by Prairie Charms.
Huge thank you to Alice & Amy for hosting yet another amazing meet up - be sure to follow @sotonbloggers for info on future events!
