As you may have seen if you follow my social media, last month I attended the #SotonMeetUp organised by the lovely Alice and Amy. This is the fourth event organised by the girls and ever since attending their first event last year we have pretty much become inseparable. The venue for the fourth event was the newly refurbished Revolutions in Bedford Place where we made our way up to the second floor where we had the Stoli bar all to ourselves. Slowly but surely all 40 bloggers descended on the bar ordering a mixture of cocktails, mock-tails and 2-4-1 pizzas. I opted for the Superfruit Nojito which as far as mock-tails go is the BEST I have ever tasted!
The reason why I love these meet ups is because they are so laid back and really give everyone a chance to mingle and catch up. There’s always a mixture of familiar faces and newbies but everyone is so welcoming and friendly and its always nice to have a good old natter with a like minded bunch of girls. There were 3 brands exhibiting at the event: Out Come the Wolves who were showcasing their gorgeous fashion collection including some fabulous lace bralets, ESPA offering individual skin consultations and skincare advice and Hairfinity who were showcasing their hair vitamins whilst running a competition for who can braid the fastest whilst blindfolded…its safe to say my attempt was a massive fail.
After making the rounds the nattering continued over mini tubs of Jude’s ice cream and the most divine cupcakes from Love Cake Bakery washed down with some more delicious cocktails. Full of sugar and excitement we all gathered as the raffle began. We managed to raise an astounding £350 for the Epilepsy Society which is close to both the girl’s hearts and couldn’t be more of a deserving cause. The girls really pulled it out the bag when it came to the raffle prizes with a ton of amazing prizes from the likes of Benefit, Clinique, Revolutions, West Quay, Sensationail and Esquido. I managed to pick up some Revolutions vouchers which I am looking forward to using to try out more of their delicious menu with the girls.
The girls should be extremely proud of what they have achieved as the day was perfect and the best event I have been to by far. I look forward to the next one as I know this will only be bigger and better.
