So I'm not actually from near Bournemouth, but I don't live too far away, so it was super lovely to be involved with the Bournemouth Bloggers meet-up that happened last Saturday. It's always the way that you never take as many photos as you'd have hoped at these things, and I took none of the first bit when we were chilling with food and getting competitive with the quiz (I was in a team with Faye and Rosie..'The Quizzie Rascals' oh yerrrr) - I was obviously having far too much of a good time. The goody bags that Hannah had organised were absolutely unreal! There were gifts from Next, John Frieda, Lush, Beauxoxo, The Bohemian Collective, Jimmy's Iced Coffee and more, and the detailing of what was in the bags and how they were personalised was a lovely touch - it was like Christmas and birthday all at once!

When the burly rugby started kicking off, we headed into town to have a wander before our demo session at Benefit, where we were all shown the new Fine One One product on the market which I really liked, and were also told about some new products hitting the shelves soon - a few new palettes and a fab sounding concealer is coming to counters soon!

Personally, I find I know quite a few bloggers well from the blogging community. I enjoy getting an insight to peoples lives when I read blogs daily and half of the bloggers I know and chat to already feel like friends, and meetups are the best way to get everyone together and finally sit down in person and have a chat. I met some of my favs who I've wanted to meet for aaages, and also some people I'd never heard of before, so it's a win win situation.

Thank you very much to Hannah for taking the time to organise the whole thing! It was a blast and I'm looking forward to the next meetup on the cards - big love to all the lovely girls (and guy!) at the event!
