|the most awesomest beauty bloggers from Manchester (minus myself of course)|
Early last week I decided that Lily from Beauty’s Bad Habit (pictures: the hatted girl) would be my personal tour guide in Manchester, seeing that I’m going to move here next year for my boyfriend. I needed to know all the good and bad sides of Manchester, etc. From there the idea evolved into a blogger meetup. In the end there were Pixie (pictures: white & black striped cardi), Chyaz (pictures: long-haired blonde), Lily and myself (lol have you seen that I’m peach-haired now?? I’ll blog about that later too!)
We met up outside Burger King (classy, isnt it), roamed through the streets and shops (H&M, Duty Free, random shoe shop) of Manchester for 2 hours only then to see ‘oh, 12 o’clock! cocktails time!!’.
We hopped on 1 of the 3 busses (I know, right, Manchester has FREE buses! How awesome is that?!) and went to a student bar called The Font Bar where a cocktail is only £2! Always good for skint little Maria. And there we ended up chatting for hours – like until 6pm!! Had some food, had some drinkies (see picture below), and talked about everyone’s life, how people cope with haters, how to safe my hair, what the holy grail products are and so much more. I was as always un-shut-up-able! Ooopsie!!

I have to say I’m sooo glad it all evolved to a blogger meetup. Meeting Lily, Chyaz and Pixie was so incredibly inspirational. They have given me soo much energy to keep at it. They all come from such a different background and one way or another it’s brought them to where they are right now and they all seem every bit of happy with the place they were in.
Result: I love Manchester. Yes it’s far away from London (2hrs each way on the train = £70 return for a next day journey or 4hrs each way by coach), and yes, there is only minimal beauty PR (which will make me getting a career in it difficult), but I love the atmosphere, I love the shops, I love the people and now besides loving my Lodz and my “little sis”, I can also love these 3 powerhouses :-) I CANT WAIT TO MOVE HERE!
To Chyaz, Lily & Pixie – thank you soooo much for everything that you did and said and given to me in a spiritual sense!! <3 <3
Would you attend a blogger meetup?
