As you may of already seen from other excited bloggers last Saturday was the #Southwestbloggersmeet up! I was so excited when i got the invite earlier this year and although i suffer with rather bad anxiety and travel sickness i thought screw it and jumped at the chance seem as it wasn't that far from me. I originally planned for the Mr to take me up but four hours is a long time for a man who doesn't like shopping to waste so i decided to go up by train, which I'm glad of as the views of the country and sea side was beautiful.
Once there my shyness kicked in big time and annoyingly because of it i didn't mingle as much as i wanted to or should have, although with that said all the ladies i spoke to where so nice and i even met three bloggers from where i live which really shocked me. I'm sorry to those who i didn't speak to or get much time to speak to i wasn't being rude haha i just get stupidly shy and anxious.
At the event there was Exeter's LUSH gals who where really lovely and where even doing arm massages with the snow fairy massage bars, so of course i had one and it was lovely haha. My favourite product they had their though was the winter garden Christmas gift set as it had a rose jam shower gel, ro's argan body conditioner, helping hands cream and a bar of sultana of soap. There was also teeth whitening there by Pearlys which again i tried and my teeth felt amazing, can not wait to try out their other products and finally get a gleaming white smile. After a few cocktails and a lot of chatting about beauty, blogs and everything in between the raffle was held and a lot of lovely gals won some amazing prizes. We then got our goodie bags and i can not express how amazing they where,bright pink and full of wonderful product's that i can't wait to try and share.
Even though i regret not mingling more I'm very proud of myself for going, as silly as that may sound, those who suffer from anxiety will understand how travelling and entering a room full of people you don't know can be rather scary. Now that I've broke the ice i can't wait for the next one and i shall certainly make an effort to talk to a lot more people. I also want to say a massive thank you to Liza who blogs over at Glambeautys and Kerry from Livedwithlove who organised this wonderful meet up and made it well worth going, you both did a fantastic job.
Have you been to a blog meet up before?
