Last Saturday I was invited to the Very Christmas Blogger event in Liverpool. It’s the first blogging event I’ve been invited to and I was both nervous and excited to attend.
As we walked into the building I wasn’t sure what to expect. We entered the product showcase room to lots of sparkly and bright clothing, perfect for any Christmas Party. The room was divided into Womenswear, Menswear, Childrenswear and Beauty & Jewellery.
This V by Very Unique silver one sleeve dress was my favourite and you can find it on their website here for £60.
I’m definitely more of a boots kinda girl and I adored these grey boots.
Although I don’t really know much about Men’s fashion, you couldn’t go wrong with any of the items on show for your Christmas Events. You can find the Men’s range at Very here.
I’d never thought of Very when it comes to shopping for my boys clothes, but I certainly will do from now on. Although they do sell various designer clothing for children, they also have their own V by Very range which is great quality at an affordable price. I loved this section of boys clothes by Joules. You can view the childrenswear here.
The Skin Doctors were also show casing their range of Cosmeceuticals. You can find the full range on the Very website here. The Skin Doctors had a Santa Sack Lucky Dip and the lovely women let both the boys pick one for me so I have Skin Doctors Instant Eyelift and Skin Doctors Zit Zapper to try out.
Illamasqua were also showcasing their products and also did a Make-up Demonstration. You can view the Illamasqua range on Very’s website here.
Lola Rose were also showing their beautiful range of jewellery. You can view the range here on the Very website.
The Goodie Bag
The goody bag included Skin Doctors collagen boosting night ampoules, Soul Beauty triple silicone sponge set, St Tropez gradual tan, W7 Very Vegan Eye Eco Eye Colour Palette, Boozi mango & ginger margarita lip balm, Gel Rocks by Elegant Touch, coconut tanning water by Utan & Tone, Fiorelli bracelet, Baylis & Harding midnight fig & pomegranate hand wash, Illamasqua Embellishing Eye Gel in broken gold, I-Art liquid eye colour, Gatineau Paris peeling expert gel exfoliant, Ultrasun shimmering sun lotion for sensitive skin and last but not least Bomb Cosmetics Dash away bath bomb.
Overview of my first blogging event.
Before the event I was a nervous wreck. What do I wear? Do I take the boys?
When I got to the event I was glad I had taken them with me as they distracted me from the anxiety. I’d decided to wear my Lipsy Eyelash snowflake Christmas jumper – from last year, skinny jeans and Ugg boots. I’d made a little more of an effort than usual. When I got to the event I felt a little under dressed surrounded by a lot of beauty and fashion bloggers that had clearly made a lot more effort than I had, this made me feel a little anxious, but all of the bloggers I spoke to were lovely regardless of what niche they blog about. The boys were a bit bored at the start, until they started posing with the mannequins, using the photo booth and found the buffet.
I’m glad I took them with me as although behaviour wasn’t great – apologies to fellow bloggers that attended if they photo-bombed your shots; they definitely broke the ice and got me out of my comfort zone and talking to more people.
Thank you Very for the invitation and I hope to attend future events and work with you again.
