Last weekend, I was lucky to attend the North West Bloggers meet as it is ever so good meeting bloggers that you have been following for ages and of course meeting new ones. On Sunday, I revved up Joleen, yes that is the name of my car, and headed to Leek, Staffordshire.
Maxine who blogs at agirliknow organised the event in a lovely cafe called Spout. The decorations and setting of the place was unique and wonderful. There were scones, cakes, sandwiches and tea to indulge in... mmm
and we even got shown how to use a different technique when curling the hair to result in lovely collective curls...
There was a makeup tutorial of how to achieve a smokey eye look with Inika eye shadows. I love Inika, so it was amazing to see that they stick to that brand for primers, foundation and lip products too. Inika is all natural/ organic so very animal friendly as they don't test on animals either. We got the chance to give ourselves a makeover using the Pink's Boutique range. Some were fearful at the thought of removing make-up, including myself, but observing the effects these had on the skin, I was utterly captivated by the lemongrass ingredients because I learnt it is great for combinational skin types which I have. I also loved the Bamboo & Oatmeal facial, but as I said, I did not physically try these out on my face but would love to buy these to try they out.

It was so lovely to meet other bloggers of the north like Vic, Sara, Sarah, Rachael, Rosie, Charl, Terri, Sarah, Kelly, Kieron, Amelia, Char and Beth.
We got given a goody bag that was amazing! Thanks to the sponsors Barratts, Edwina Simone, Lydia Leith MiscosChocolates, Teapigs and Coulson Macleod for the pretty treats :)
I had a lovely time!
