This week I received a last minute invitation to attend a fashion and beauty bloggers event #NorthMeetUp at Revolution bar in Manchester – organised by the glamorous and lovely Em Sheldon from EmTalks. She organised it so well and was really welcoming – especially as I was slightly apprehensive when I realised that the average age of the attendees was early to mid 20s! I arrived fashionably late and the room was already buzzing with excitement. I needn’t have been concerned as everyone I met was so friendly and I picked up lots of hints and tips about blogging. More than 60 bloggers turned up and they all looked fab and stylish! Some bloggers I spoke to blog socially, purely for the love of fashion and beauty, but for others it  was part of their career.

I never got to chat with Zoe Griffin, author of “Get Rich Blogging” but I have just ordered her book from Amazon!

There were several talks from Xen-Tan, GlamGlow and Arbonne to name a few, plus the opportunity to try some new products from Anne Semonin and Blanx. I had a lovely chat with the ladies from Ilah brows and left with a fab complimentary eye brow kit – looking forward to having a play with that!

Two for one cocktails, plus pretty cupcakes made it all very hospitable!

I left laden down with several goodie bags as you can see! I cannot believe the amount of products I have to try and can’t wait to get stuck in!

Em you did a fantastic job, not just with the amazing goody bags but it was such a fabulous day, I loved chatting to everyone, the bloggers and the people representing different brands and different products and everyone was so nice and easy to speak to!

    Susan thanks so much for your lovely comments via Twitter…! I know how it feels to attend events amongst lots of 20-somethings – I have a Blogger Award event next week and the other 9 nominees are probably young enough to be my daughters 😉 But other events I’ve attended are fine – when you have a shared love of fashion and beauty it really doesn’t matter what age you are I think!

      You are welcome Catherine! It can be be very daunting but as you say we have a shared love of fashion and beauty and we can all learn from each other too! Good luck with the award!
