Today's post is all about the NWmeet blogger event I attended in Liverpool at the end of April. This event was set up by the fabulous Katy from thelilacscrapbook.com with proceeds going towards Mind.
Now for those who know me, you'll know that going to new places and "socialising" with humans does make me slightly nervous, OK a lot nervous. It's more to do with driving to new places, the anxiety of finding somewhere to park (please tell me I'm not the only one who worries over parking?) and the initial 'will they like me?' etc etc
So on that surprisingly nice day (looked like rain but Liverpool was sunny) I set off on my road trip. On arriving in Liverpool I met up with the lovely Danielle and Emma who were my guides to ameriesko an American-esque coffee bar.
The event was in the downstairs meeting room and was set up with comfy chairs, tables and around the room Katy had set up the raffle prizes and some drinks.
I was excited to meet some of my favourite people (Katy, Jemma, Olivia and Caitlin) to meeting new friends (Lydia, Laren, Tamzin, Rachel, Danielle and Emma) and some I really wish I'd chatted to in person as we've become friends on Twitter (I'd like to think lol) Sarah I'm looking at you ;)
It was really nice to put faces and Twitter names to all the people I've followed and have a conversation with some really lovely ladies.
After some time having a good old gab and butting into everyone's conversations with 'Hi I'm Bex' lol. Katy then got up to welcome everyone and talk about the raffle and that a lady from Weleda will be doing a demonstration soon.
The weleda talk was very informative and I'm very intrigued by skin food as a primer. So watch this space!
Sadly the day had to end and we were given a huge goodie bag which as you can see from my pictures was full of some fabulous products! The brands were very generous :)
Oh I was also lucky enough to win a raffle prize which is this cute necklace from Beetle Cherry made by the talented Claire Munday and I love how some of the proceeds go towards helping animals in the wild. You can check the website out here.
Oh I've also made an unboxing video which you can watch here :)
I had a fabulous time and I'd like to thank Katy for all her hard work and to the brands for being so generous!
