So where to start! Massive thanks to the lovely Scarlett London for managing to pull off such a fantastic blogging event!
I am still very new to the whole blogging game and this event was my second blogging event and to say I was nervous would be a definite understatement! The day started off with me manically running around London trying to get my bearings (I’m often in London but still find tubes so freaking confusing!) I was stressing out about what I was going to wear and not getting lost etc etc.
Luckily a lovely group of bloggers organised Pizza Express before the event which was so what I needed. Going to a big blogger event is surprisingly quite intimidating so it was great to meet a slightly smaller group to eat, drink and chat about blogging in a relaxed environment. We were all keen beans & arrived at DSTRK in Piccadilly Circus early and took the opportunity to take a load of outfit photos. Met the beautiful Scarlett and entered the building…
I was absolutely blown away with how busy, gorgeous, interesting and insightful the event was! Often nightclubs look odd once the lights were up but it was a fantastic event with the majority of brands in one section and the other section having a more chilled out vibe with places to sit – thank god because my heels were hurting! There were plenty of opportunities to mingle with other bloggers, brands and get involved with activities and chances to win prizes. For once I actually won a beautiful, colourful scarf!
The 2 and a half hours flew by and a few bloggers stayed on and we ended up having dinner and cocktails, reflecting on the perfect day!
It was a struggle to say the least trying to lug around all the goodies we all received round London and back home, but totally worth it! Everyone was so inviting and lovely, the blogging community is just amazing!
First up are the Vatika Naturals hair and skincare products. I have never heard of the products before but apparently are in stores such as Superdrug. Now I have seriously lack lustre hair and so have been recommended these products which supposedly are great for ‘rejuvenating limp, lifeless hair’. They are enriched with coconut, I was given the shampoo and hairmask to try. Yet to use the hairmask but the shampoo… so far so good! It certainly made my already thick hair incredibly volumised. What’s your hair like? Whatever your type, find out which would work best for you here. I used the ‘Dermoviva Honey’ moisture boost face wash with honey, almond and aloe vera along with my trusty Foreo Luna Play facial brush and it works wonders, making my skin feel supple, smooth and hydrated.
Next up the beautiful Jewellery Box. I have seen all these stunning pieces all over social media and was intrigued. At the stall I tried on the Rose Gold arrow ring and it fitted my tiny finger yay! I find it so tricky to find rings that fit! So I was over the moon to find inside the box the exact rose gold ring that I tried – I can’t stop wearing it! Unfortunately the rose gold bracelet doesn’t fit my wrist and falls off which is such a shame! The twinkly silver wrap around bracelet from Boho Betty fits though! This is perfect in summer and especially when it’s sunny as the beads and metal sparkle in the sunlight!
Lastly, Seed & Bean! I tasted the Sweet Orange & Thyme, which sounds a strange mix yet as soon as it hit my mouth the taste sensation was insane! It tastes so freaking good! And if you are headed to Glastonbury I think they will have a stall there! Alternatively to go there website to see all stores which stock these incredible products! They are Organic, Vegan, Fairtrade chocolate bars which are produced in an ethical and sustainable manner, which I think are SO important!
Love Career Girl,
