Bournemouth Bloggers Meet

On Saturday a bunch of bloggers or local business owners (or both!) came together for a day of food, shopping, gossiping and nosing in some pretty awesome goody bags.

Hannah [Bailey Cakes] had not only organised the day but managed to snag some amazing treats for our personalised goodie bags (look how cute they are!) as well as arranging a little corner of Yates's in Bournemouth for us to come together, and a QUIZ (I love a good quiz!)  We assembled at lunchtime and did a little icebreaker where we had to gather facts about each other.  I was paired up with the beautiful Tamsin from Little Glitter.


We quickly did a couple of group photos as we all know no-one ever takes any photos at blogger events! I'm not going to tag everyone's names and links but I'm sure you'll all spot some familiar faces! On the far left are Kim who owns Ever Ours, Faye who owns Bohemian Collective and Georgie who owns beauxoxo.  I'd met them before at Boscombe Vintage Market and it was so nice getting to know the faces behind the amazing business a little more!

After ordering lots of yummy food we then had a quiz, also organised by Hannah, which featured general knowledge questions and questions about blogging.  Prizes ranged from gift boxes from Lush to treats from Ever Ours, Beauty Closet (owned by Brogan who also came along!) and John Frieda.  Despite being ultra competitive, myself, Tamsin and Faye lost out so the impressive knowledge of team 'You're a Quizard, Harry'.

After lunch and the quiz we were kindly invited to Benefit to see some of their new products.  We all had their newest product, Fine One One (a highlighter for cheeks and lips) tested on us and were also shown their World Famous Neutrals eyeshadow palette which is coming soon, along with a new hydrating concealer called Fake Up which sounds awesome.

All in all it was an awesome day and so nice to meet some new bloggers from the area and get a chance to catch up with some faces I already new!

Joseph from Unlimited by JK took my picture and kindly featured me on his blog.

You might remember my shoes from a wishlist a couple of weeks ago.  I gave in and snapped them up with some Spartoo credit and I am in love with them.  They are not in love with me however and gave me some significant blisters.  Boo, shoes!


I mentioned at the start that there were some very generous donations from companies and local businesses for goodie bags for the event and I was truly overwhelmed when I dug through my goodie bag.  John Frieda really treated us with lots of haircare goodies (in urgent need of 3-day-straight at the moment due to GHD-gate!), Lush donated lip glosses and massage bars, Next homewares donated wooden picture frames and candles, Faye from Bohemian Collective donated some of her gorgeous jewellery, Georgie from beauxoxo donated hair bands and hair bows and Hannah wrapped lots of prezzies from other companies; I got a belt from Fat Face.  We also all got cartons of Jimmy's Iced Coffee which I'm super excited to try, I had no idea they were based down the road from me in Christchurch, pretty cool having such an awesome brand based close by.  I've listed all the items not because I'm being a bragging Barbara but because I want to give recognition to the brands for being so generous!


All in all it was an awesome day and mega kudos goes to Hannah for organising it.  I love going to blogger meets as it's so nice to put names to faces and have a good chat with other people who share the same hobby.  Bournemouth is lucky to have so many lovely, talented internet people!

  11. It looks really nice, I would really love the opportunity to meet other bloggers! I wonder if there are any of these events in Saudi Arabia (where I live)... haha.
    It was good to see a boy in the second photo. Why is blogging such a ladies world? Probably cos we've got so, so much to say.
