October 2012 Nottingham Bloggers Meetup

After a long time planning, on Saturday the Nottingham #bbloggers meetup I arranged finally happened! There were 15 of us in total, and we met up at 10am in Nottingham City Center, before heading off for a day of shopping, fashion events and shows, and yummy food at Nando's! It was so lovely to meet girls who I had not only followed and loved their blogs for a long time, but speak to on a daily basis, as well as to meet new faces and find new lovely blogs to read!


It was the weekend of Nottingham's 48 hours of fashion so there were a few fashion events and shows going on around Nottingham and in the shopping centers. Some of the girls who came to the meetup took advantage of these events and shows and went to watch them, whilst the rest of us shopped (until we almost dropped!) We visited Lush, to check out the new Christmas range, Space NK, who were a bit taken aback by 15 beauty bloggers coming in all at once (the staff were as lovely as ever when I visit the Nottingham branch!), MAC where cheeky purchases were made, and all of the rest of the shops that Nottingham had to offer! 



I spent a silly amount at the meetup. A silly, silly amount. But it was nice to treat myself! So, what did I buy? 

MAC lipstick in Rebel
MAC eye-shadow in Naked Lunch
MAC eye-shadow in Contrast
MAC Pro palette quad
Lush Bubblebeard 
Lush The Sacred Truth
Benefit Browzings
Urban Decay Smoked palette

I also bought some clothes, some boots, some Vans, some jewellery and some socks! The photo below also includes some pieces I bought the week before! Such as Models Own and Essie polishes, Urban Decay De-Slick XL, YSL Touche Eclat perfume, MAC Marilyn Monroe lipstick in Charmed I'm Sure, Wet N' Wild trio, FashionistaX palette, MUA trio, Bobbi Brown eye liner, Nuxe lip balm, three Maybelline Color Tattoos, Collection concealer and illuminating concealer, Rimmel London Stay Matte pressed powder, a MaxFactor lipstick and a Rimmel London lipstick. I've also ordered online some more MAC pieces which will be coming soon, as well as some MUA stuff! So expect lots of reviews on makeup coming up!

I had a really lovely day, with really lovely people. It was so nice to finally meet people I have called friends for a long time now, as well as some new faces. It was nice to spend the day with people just as obsessed with beauty as me, and it was nice to come away from it with lots of beauty goodies! 


Thank you to all of those who came to the meetup. I hope you all had a lovely day like me! Esp thank you to those who traveled for it. With Laura, Charlotte and Chloee travelling from Telford and Birmingham, Jessie travelling from Norfolk, Sophie who traveled all the way from Canterbury and Amiiee who traveled from Luton. It means a lot that you would all travel such a long way to come to the meetup!

I will be arranging a second #bbloggers meetup for January. I hope you can all make it. Details will be shared very soon!
