Welsh Blogger Event

Last weekend I headed to Cardiff with my friend Laura to attend the Welsh blogger event which was held in the Angel Hotel.  Laura and I worked together and soon discovered our love of all things beauty and have had each other to discuss blogging dilemma's!

The Welsh Blogger Event was organised by Ffion (a south wales blog) and Charlotte (Rose Above the Thorns).  Laura found this event on Twitter and as neither of us had been to a blogger event before we decided to go together.

I had no idea what to wear as I hadn't been to a blogger event before, I didn't want to be too overdressed or look under dressed.  SO after much deliberation I came up with this outfit and makeup look, below.

When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by the lovely girls who organised the event and were giving a glass of Prosecco and some yummy canapes.  We spent the afternoon sipping prosecco, meeting the other bloggers and chatting with companies who had set up stalls.




Beauty Crowd had provided goody bags for us all and Hanne Jenkins, the Cardiff store manager, came and gave us an exciting talk on the company and some of the products we were receiving in our bags.  Here's what I got in my goody bag:







I am in LOVE with the Milani blush, it is the prettiest blusher I have ever used!!

I had such a lovely time at the blogger event and met some lovely blogging gals, I cannot wait for the next get together!
