If you follow me on any of my social media accounts you'll know that last month I made my way to another Soton Bloggers event! I've been to two before, and they're definitely my favourite events to go to. I love meeting local bloggers, and seeing all the friends I've made over the past year or so through blogging. The event was held at Revolution Southampton, the area was a good size for all 40 or so bloggers and the brands that attended. I ran into a few of the bloggers attending outside, and we headed upstairs to the Stoli Bar together.

Before I started to mingle with the other bloggers there, I grabbed a cocktail, I can't remember what I had but it was very fruity! We were greeted with cakes from Love Cake and ice cream from Judes, I didn't grab a cake as I wasn't feeling anything too sweet, but I have to admit the Salted Caramel Ice Cream from Judes is some of the best ice cream I've ever tasted. That's coming from someone who used to make ice cream so it's pretty incredible to be honest.

After catching up with everyone and grabbing a few more cocktails, I explored the venue a bit more and discovered more about Hairfinity, Espa and Out Come The Wolves. Espa were giving skin consultations out so that was my first stop, I know nothing about my skin really so it's nice to be told what kind of products I should be using to help my skin and keep it healthy. Hairfinity had a competition to see who could do the fastest blindfolded hair braid, and with 5 minutes to spare I entered it, and I won! The goody box I won looks incredible and I can't wait to start using everything.

The event included an amazing raffle, and we raised £350 for the Epilepsy Society, a charity close to the hearts of many. There were some fab prizes including a polaroid camera, a box of Benefit goodies, a Clinique Skincare set, and many more. I didn't think I was going to win anything, but they pulled out one last prize and I won that, which was two silver tickets for London Fashion Weekend, I am so excited for that. 

Overall I had an amazing day. Thankyou to Alice and Amy for organising, and all the brands that attended the event and participated by providing amazing goody bags. The goody bags were so good that I decided to do a separate post on them to give detail on all the brands that contributed. I met so many new bloggers to add to all the local bloggers I already know.

Have you been to any blog meetups, did you enjoy yourself?
