In todays blog, I decided to write about my experience at the Bloggers Ball which commenced yesterday. Organised by the beautiful Scarlett London, the Bloggers Ball is an annual event to allow bloggers to come together and celebrate the beauty of blogging, reach out to new ideas and even grab some inspiration for future blogs.
A brief overview…
I was invited by my close friend (also a blogger) Sophia, who luckily won tickets to the ball. After weeks of preparation, Sophia and I travelled from Kent to the Trading Building in London. We were buzzing with excitement and was warmly welcomed with a glass of champagne on arrival (which was very nice). Hundreds of bloggers arrived- from all different walks of life.
During the event, we were given the chance to test out new indie brands and mingle with other bloggers. It was refreshing to meet male beauty bloggers as the beauty industry is so diverse, we need men demonstrating the versatility of cosmetics to encourage a modern image to beauty and cosmetic products.
Above, are a few of products I was invited to try out…
(LEFT) MOX London– is a bath elixir/skin care company, who specialises making sweet and magical bath elixirs for all skin types.
(TOP RIGHT)- Lola’s Apothecary– a natural beauty and wellness company for deep healing and radiance. With products created in Devon and fragrances inspired by natural scents, this indie beauty brand is an example of a original and traditional English brand.
(BOTTOM RIGHT)- Johnny Loves Rosie– a premium fashion and jewellery company which creates beautiful bags and accessories too.
A few glasses of bubbly later, the event came to close and us bloggers were given a bag full of goodies (which I will cover later..). Being reasonably new to the blogging industry, and given this chance to meet new people who share the same passions as me, was incredible.
Here is a sneak peak to some of the goodies I received….
The bag contained loads of little testers; teeth whitening kits, nutrition bars, low-carrie snacks, a cocktail mixer, shortbreads, hair products and much more…
In future blogs, I will test some of these treats as I am always looking for new nutrition snacks to try.
I will try these chippea crisp puffs as I am a fan of vegetable crisps as they are perfect for late-night snacking and very low in calories and as a gym fanatic, having a balanced but nutritional diet is vital.
Another treasure I received was two miniature OGX coconut milk shampoo and conditioner. This product is so nourishing and is perfect to treat dry/dull hair. I will take these essentials on holiday as they will keep my hair looking fresh- plus they are travel size!
Another free sample I got was Janina Whitening Toothpaste Spray, I have never used teeth whitening before. However, after receiving this I will trying it out! (future blog to come)
Another great foodie treat I received were these coconut truffles from Good4U; these sweet nutritional treats are ideal to be eaten on the go or after a workout, to give you that extra boost. I will try these snacks after my next workout and let you guys know on how I got on!
Another gym essential snack that I will trying out will be these from Chirps; these high protein crisp snacks are made from free-range egg whites and contains low saturated fats- perfect for a light healthier snack.
(Let me know, if you would like to see me blog about nutritional snacks as I am excited to try out all these brands!)
I want to thank Scarlett London for an amazing event and opportunity and Sophia for the invitation.
