Lily Pebbles and Anna Gardner inspired me months ago to set up my own blog.  

Friendly, professional and not afraid to laugh at themselves, they epitomise the qualities a top blogger should have. And they seriously know their stuff.  Last summer they had a meet up in Hyde Park, due to other stuff going on, I couldn't make it, however when they released their #BeautyChat Live dates, I wasn't going to miss out.  I mean c'mon, Lily, Anna, SpaceNK and bubbly. I just had to go. And there were goodie bags on offer.

This informal evening was just what the doctor ordered. All week I had been suffering with migraine symptoms, which I am prone to and I was debating on even going. However I gave myself a much needed pep talk, slapped on some mascara and headed off on the 90 mile trip to Nottingham.  

Safe to say, it was well worth it.  Before the event started, I had my base makeup applied by a Nars pro. It looked great.  Flawless, slightly dewy and radiant.  Feeling the best I had felt in days, I noted the shades down and products used for future ref.  Just a mental note of course, surely I wouldn't buy anymore makeup (I did).

Anna and Lily appeared and looked as you would expect, polished and well turned-out.  Both much smaller in real life, and very glam. So lovely and just your normal down-to-earth girls.  Limited to just 25 tickets it was a really great idea. Everyone was encouraged to ask questions, no matter how random, about life and makeup. There were giggles aplenty and everyone enjoyed themselves. That, or they had consumed too much bubbly.

Lily and I had quite a chat about Anna's hair and that it always look fabulous. So much so we thought about starting the hashtag #hateannashair. It just wouldn't trend, she's far too nice. It was like chatting to old friends and having a catch up.

To attend was just £15, this was redeemable if you spent over £50.  Very easy to do. And achieved. Better than anything though, you then got your hands on a jam packed goodie bag, packed with around 30 products, some deluxe sample sizes and some full size.  I have only just found a home for everything. I am sure some of these products will pop up in future posts.

So the evening was fun, held in SpaceNK (perfect) and I got to meet L and A. I am so pleased I managed to grab my arse off the sofa and got myself to Nottingham, as this the best 'bloggy' event I have been too. 

I may have one or two slight girl crushes!
