Yesterday I was lucky enough to be able to attend a North East fashion and beauty blogger event run by Tor and Ray at Fabb Events. Along with a large proportion of the girls there this was my first event and I was terrified! A few of us arranged to meet beforehand so we didn’t have to walk into the event on our own, it would appear we were all as nervous as each other. I had the privilege of meeting some lovely ladies, Amy who informed me of the event, Kate, Aqeel, Amy, Katie, Faith, Shannon, Amy, Hana, Louise and Libby to name a few.
The event itself was held in a beautifully tropical themed room in Tiger Tiger in Newcastle, I felt like i’d travelled to a foreign country! Like many similar events we had bloggers favourites of cupcakes and cake pops made by Rosie The Cake Maker.
Once we all settled into our seats with our cocktails and cakes we had a talk from Tinned Bananas who sell some of the most amazing dresses and bikini’s I think i’ve ever seen in my life. I am now trying to find an excuse in order to buy a bikini, even if I just parade around my house in it.
We all got a chance to chat amongst ourselves, participate in giveaways via twitter and mingle for a while, though saying that due to my social awkwardness I wasn’t the worlds best mingler, apologies ladies. After that we had a short presentation from Sandra from Newcastle Fashion week who was accompanied by Jess who I actually went to high school with, what a small world! She told us about all the exciting things happening next month at Newcastle’s third fashion week and was even kind enough to give us all free tickets to the Saturday event at my own universities student union.
Thank you to Fabb Events for organising such a lovely day for us all and I look forward to seeing a few of the girls again next month at another event
