Brighton Blogger Meetup

On Saturday I popped down to Brighton for the day for a meetup organised by the lovely Laura from Lola and Behold.

20 bloggers all congregated at the Globe pub just off Brighton Seafront. We all had a good natter, and Laura had prepared some name badges, which for someone as rubbish with names as me was a total godsend!

We had a fab demonstration from Lush who showed us how they make one of their fresh face masks. We were all given a pot to try out at home, which I'm looking forward to as it will be the first one I've tried. Nail Girls also popped in briefly as they had kindly chosen us all a nail polish  based on our blogs. Mine was a gorgeous light blue which I can't wait to try out.

 After the Globe we headed off to My Salon Looks - a new salon at the Hove end of Brighton. We were shown two demonstrations - the first was a type of balayage colouring using tissues, and then a Shu Uemera treatment. It was really interesting to see how both of these worked - the tissue dye left an amazing effect on the hair and the Shu Uemera experience looked like a really luxurious pampering to have as part of your hair cut.

As we were getting ready to leave the salon, we were all surprised with a gift - either a pair of straighteners or a hairdryer. I was given a luxury hairdryer that contains a small amount of argan oil that blows over your hair as you dry it. It was such a shock and a wonderful treat and I can't thank the salon enough!

 After the salon, we hit the shops in Brighton. I headed off with a couple of the girls to Montezumas to pick up some chocolate (seriously, you need to go there if you visit Brighton) and we hit Jo Malone for a good sniffing session.

The day finished off with a lovely Italian meal, which was the perfect time for a cheeky gin, and a chance to have one final chat before we all headed off home.

Laura also prepared some amazing goody bags with the help of lots of brands - they contained a Birchbox, Bodhi, Green People, Weleda, Batiste, Nourish skincare, Helen E, Washi cloths, Angelica nails, Mavala, to name just a few.
