I was invited by lovely Faye to attend the National Beauty Blogging Event at ProBeauty 2011 in London yesterday and this was the first event that I was invited to so I was really excited and didn’t know what to expect at all, even with the itinerary Faye sent through.
So I found some lovely bloggers who had been invited as well – Charli from Secrets Behind the Closet Door (@SBTCDCharli), Leanne from Do Not Refreeze (@donotrefreeze) and Zoe from London Lip Gloss (@londonlipgloss) – and we met up at 9.20am to go into the venue.
There we also met Farrah Grey (@farrah_grey), Sabrina from Sabrina Loves You (@sabrinalovesyou), Sparklz & Shines, Mercee from Reigning Beauties (@miss_merx) and Stina from Sweet Cheeks Ramblings aka The Chic Beauty Blog (@chicbeautyblog). What a bunch of lovely girls!
There were sessions held by a couple of makeup artists and beauticians and lots of companies were representing their products: ArtDeco, Decleor, Joico, Kiss, Monu, Natural Bisse, RMK and OrganicTan (I think I might have forgotten some!).
They all had a LOT of goodies available for attendees so you will see plenty first impressions and reviews coming up soon as well as giveaways!
We also got to go down to ProBeauty though we felt bad for just skipping out of the sessions and I spent £53 on 12 Crown brushes (you cant ever have enough brushes) and £24 on 8 Nubar nail polishes!
Here’s some pictures:

All in all it was a fabulous day and I’m really happy I met all these lovely bloggers! I hope we will manage to meet up more often besides beauty-related events.
ProBeauty was very busy with its gazillion beautician students and whatnot. about 4x the size (if not more) than IMATS but also more professional stalls and more space to walk! Definitely a lot better organisation than IMATS too! YAY
