Look Fantastic & My Bag #midsummermeet

Hello!

I hope you've all had a good start to the week and enjoyed your weekend!

Last Thursday I got the pleasure of going to the #midsummermeet which was put together by a lovely blogger called Hannah, Look Fantastic and My Bag. It was a lovely evening full of some very well know brands as well as a few I had never come across before. It's always nice to be introduced to new brands and get to find out a little bit more about the more well known ones.

The event took place in Walrus Cafe Bar in the Manchester Northern Quarter. I traveled on my own and had a little bit of trouble finding the location of the event. Thank God that smart phones now have Google Maps and GPS, haha! When I finally arrived I was welcomed by some lovely girls helping out at the event and shown to the private room of the Walrus Cafe Bar were the event was taking place. I was also given a free drink token which was a lovely start to the event.

The room was full of all loads of brands including Benefit, Burt's Bees, Nails Inc, MaroccanOil, Evo, L'oreal and Show just to name a few. We got the chance to look at each brand as we pleased and talk to the people who worked for the brand. They were all very lovely and gave out loads of info about their brand. Benefit were giving out free makeovers and Nails Inc were also doing nails, as well as showing off some of their new collections and the new gel nail polish line! Unfortunately I had come to the event with a full face of makeup so didn't have a Benefit makeover however I did get to try their upcoming blush Rockateur and can't wait to get my hands on it! L'oreal talked through their new steam straightener and MaroccanOil talked about their collection and were doing hair consultations. Their were also talks from some of the other brands attending the event which was lovely! It was also so lovely to catch up with some of the bloggers I had met at the North Meet Up and meet some new bloggers too.




Sorry about the not so great pictures! I decided to take my bridge camera rather than my SLR for ease of traveling but had completely forgot how to use it because it had been so long!

To end the event we were all given a goody bag which I didn't expect at all. It contained so many lovely brands and a few which I had never heard of so I'm looking forward to trying them out. I'm particually excited to try the Nails Inc Gel Polish, Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Lip Cream and MaroccanOil which were all included in the bag! Benefit also gave out a little goodie bag and mine contained one of their cream eyeshadows in the shade RSVP which is really pretty!
 

My outfit for the night including a leather look skirt and over sized tee (both featured in my last haul) teams with my denim jacket and vans for a casual look. I also wore a lovely gold statement necklace just to jazz it up a bit!

Were you at the #midsummermeet? What events have you been to recently?
