Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of attending my first Scarlett London event: #BloggersFestival. After spending the morning agonising over what to wear and how to do my makeup, on the afternoon of the 3rd September, I finally hopped on the train to London and made my way to Conrad St James.

I was unfortunately having one of those days where I just felt incredibly shy and because I'd never been to an event in this format before, I was even more worried. Thankfully soon after arriving, I met Chelsey who was willing to spend the afternoon with me and keep me company!

Upon arriving at the gorgeous hotel venue and gawping at the decor, I headed downstairs to the Whitehall suite where the event was taking place. Of course, the first thing that caught my eye was this gorgeous wall made entirely of white flowers - amazing photo opportunity or what? The lovely Scarlett introduced herself to me and a waiter handed my a glass of Bucks Fizz. 

Armed with alcohol, I began to make my way around the venue, introducing myself to the wide range of brands that were exhibiting and checking out all that they had to offer. From food to beauty to gadgets to jewellery, there really was something for every blogger here! Brands of particular note included:

  • Alflorex, a probiotic for IBS suffers, like myself
  • Jewellery Box
  • GoSend: an excellent service that makes getting your hands on American goodies so much easier
  • PNY: kindly gifted me a portable charger, something I've been after for ages
  • Beverley Hills Formula toothpaste
  • Heaven Skincare 
  • Natural World: a natural haircare brand 

The event location was absolutely stunning and it was a fantastic opportunity to meet and network with both brands and fellow bloggers. I was lucky enough to receive an amazing goodie bag and some gifts from the brands exhibiting. Over the coming weeks, I'll be reviewing lots of these and I can't wait to share these things with you. 

I will definitely be attending more of Scarlett's events in the future!
