FABB Events Manchester

Saturday was the FABB event in Manchester and I had a great time and met some really lovely people 🙂 The event was hosted by the FABB Events team – Tor from That’s Peachy and Ray from Who Is She

OOTD: Jacket – New Look, shirt – Primark, jeans – Warehouse, necklace – Primark, bag – H&M…. and my cat in the background, oops.

I started the day by returning a few things and having a browse around town (I couldn’t resist!) and then met up with some other lovely bloggers (ElizabethJess, CatFrancesca, Sophie, Tilly, HannahBeth and Molly, I hope I’ve not missed anybody out, my memory is terrible at times!) to grab some Burger King. We found our way to the venue pretty easily, and couldn’t wait to see what was inside! There were lovely tables set up from different companies: Lavish Alice (they had the most gorgeous blazer you can see below!), Tinned Bananas, Derma V10 Tech, South Beach, Vita Liberata, La Moda and Eldora lashes. There were also some of the most beautiful cupcakes I’ve ever had on offer too! Yum.

There were giveaways running all through the afternoon where you were alerted by tweet if you managed to win anything, I luckily won some Blow Dry Balm by Neal and Wolf, and a gorgeous pinafore style dress from Chiara Fashion. Apart from the items given away by the brands at the event, we also got a giftbag from the girls themselves, thanks so much! 🙂 Inside the gift bags there were things like Pearl Drops Instant White Toothpaste, Hawaiian Tropic Sun Lotion, Sweet and Salty Pop Chips, Vita Liberata Fake Tan, Barry M Lash Vegas Mascara and some American style sweets, among so many other wonderful things!

After the event, me, Cat, Elizabeth and Francesca went to Dry bar in Manchester to have a cocktail and some pizza and have a look through our goodie bags! Before going home I had a browse in Boots with Elizabeth and ended up treating myself to a few things, and I finally found a coke bottle with my name on it!

I had such a good day and am glad I finally got to meet the bloggers I’d been speaking to over Twitter and texts for the weeks leading to the event! Let me know if you went to the event and links to any posts you’ve written  on it, I’d love to see them 🙂

Thanks for reading,

The Book Review #6 – The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

The Book Review #6 – The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

I was expecting big things from this book after I’d seen so many people reading it. Unfortunately, I was quite disappointed. I started reading the book a few months ago, and I couldn’t get into it at all, but after hearing such good things I decided to push on in the hope that it might get better. The …

University #1: Student Finance

Before I started this blog, I had created another aptly named The Journey To University, it’s pretty probable that you’ve already worked out the topic. If you want to have a look at that, click the link. I don’t post on that blog anymore as it was all part of a project for college, but it …

The Book Review #5 – I Heart Hollywood

I’m currently working my way through the “I Heart” series, and have already posted a review about the first book I Heart New York here.  So, the second book brought out the same emotions as the first; it made me jealous, it made me cringe (for the main character Angela, nothing to do with the actual book!), …
