Why hello pals, it's been a minute, hasn't it? Well - I'm glad to say I've finished uni for the semester! Phew! I now have a few weeks off so I can hopefully get back into the swing of blogging - and tv marathoning :P What better way to get back into blogging than with a post all about a blogger event!? A couple of weeks ago I attended Bloggers United AU's first Brisbane event! Bloggers United AU was created by the lovely Jasmine and Nikita, and has been so successful having already hosted events in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne! The day itself was SO amazing, being able to connect with bloggers and brands alike. We also received an absolutely crazy goody bag that I for sure had difficulty lugging to the train haha! I thought I would show you guys what we got - no bragging intended obvi - in case you saw anything you would like me to review especially!
The event itself was held at the Fox hotel which was a lovely venue (the food was delish too!). They had a set up of chairs from which we could watch the main presentations, then round the back were tables where the attending brands had set up! The set ups were awesome, some really beautiful displays as well as the opportunity to play with a bunch of products which was amazing! We of course got to chat to the representatives and learn more about the brands which is always a great opportunity! It was also awesome to catch up with bloggers I'd met from previous events, as well as meet new people, or people I've "known" (through the internet!) for years! I always find it a bit nerve-wracking going to these events, but it's always an amazing time meeting and hanging out with people with similar interests! Huge shoutout and thank you to Nikita, Jasmine, Tahana and Zebby for organising the event! It was a huge success and I had an absolutely amazing time!
I didn't take my camera, but here are just a few photos from the event, captured by Peter Cabral.
Onto the goody bags though - seriously the amount of products we received was ridiculous! Thank you so much to the brands who contributed - I'm incredibly grateful and I'm excited to use the products and talk about them in the future! I really love the range of brands and products included, there are a few in here that I've never heard of or have been wanting to try for ages! There were also a few foodie bits included - like a chocolate bar which I promptly ate :P
