So on Saturday I attended the South Wales Bloggers meet up in Cardiff.  I only recently got involved with the blogging community on twitter and I'm sad it took me so long.  I got invited to this meet about 3 weeks ago and since then it was a mixture of fear and excitement.  I get mild anxiety about new situations and I have this horrible thing where I need everyone to like me, not always great for social situations.  But despite my nerves I'm so glad I went. 

The event was hosted in The Brewhouse, a live music venue that does incredible food and cocktails - highly recommended if you're ever in Cardiff.  The girls from Lush did little presentations showing off one of their great face masks (Catastrophe Cosmetic) and we got to take a sample pot away so you can expect a review of that soon.  The lovely ladies who organised the event also spoiled us massively with our goodie bags, I did not expect that at all. After lunch (aka stuffing my face with a lemon thyme chicken burger - diet what diet?) we headed over to Crabtree & Evelyn for some more demonstrations and another goodie bag (so spoilt).  I always walk past this shop when I'm in town assuming it to be far out of my budget but it's surprisingly not! They have gorgeous products that are beautifully packaged.  In our goodie bags we got a money off voucher so I'll be heading back there this week to pick a couple of things up.

Sadly I had to leave early and skip the fashion show to get on with my massive pile of revision that has generally be left untouched.  But I saw some of the other girl's posts about it and it looked like a lot of fun.  Hopefully next time!

So this was my first ever blogger meet up and it was such a great experience.  It was really something out of my comfort zone but I'm glad I did it.  I can't wait to go to another one.  The girls were all so lovely and friendly it was easy to chat to them.  

Thanks again to all the lovely ladies who organised such a great event and for making me feel so welcome and at ease.

Here's to the next one!
