If you didn't know, a couple of weeks ago I headed out to London to attend the #BloggersXmas event run by sisters and bloggers Kirsty and Jasmine from Soeur de Luxe. I went with my blogging besties, Ana, Tanya and Abi who I was super excited about seeing again as well as meeting some brands, exploring some new collections and having a generally good time!
The first brand we met was a new and independent brand called Aromand who make the loveliest smelling candles! I can't lie, the table cloth got me before the candles but once I took a whiff of the candles, I wanted to take them all home. They smelled amazing! I think my favourite was one that had tomato leaf in.
There were a couple of brands I'd already recognised before including Sweet Cheesus - an independent cheesecake brand, that I have to say make some pretty dang good cheesecake. And I also spotted the tree by the bar which had a little competition running on it from Red Letter Days who I know already are a brand specialising in experience days and things like that. They were running an awesome competition using the tree which was quite clever I thought.
It was lovely to see some familiar and returning brands during the event because I could see what they'd been up to in the last year and what was on offer at the moment.
I unfortunately didn't get chatting to the people at this brand but I'm sure they were called Gia London, making the most beautifully coloured clutch bags. They're website is up and running but I'm not sure if you can shop through them yet. Either way, they had a gorgeous selection of clutch bags I would have loved to take home with me that day! I was particularly drawn to the triad of clutches in the middle of the golden frame...
We then went along to meet Joe Browns which is an awesome clothing brand I've heard of for a while now. I've been eyeing up a few pairs of their boots recently which are beautiful and look like they've just come off the set of Once Upon A Time. And I've also been oogling at their hedgehog mittens which are just super cute and a half! They're a brand I definitely recommend checking out to see if it's your style and get some high quality pieces.
After having a chat with the guys over at Joe Browns, we all headed off to see what PNY were showcasing this time. We'd met them at the #BloggersFestival this year already so we were keen to see if they'd released any new products at all. They had a really cool game you could play though where you were able to win something from the board. I won a 16GB USB stick which will come in super handy!
I am always excited to see JewelleryBox.co.uk. They've always got the most beautiful displays and updated products every time I see them. This time they were rocking the whole fireplace look with the ring display made to look like logs! Cute and clever no?
I loved seeing their Christmas collection there and also chatting to Gemma who helps run the BTS PR stuff for JewelleryBox.co.uk. She's such fun to talk to and always tells us the updates on JewelleryBox. This time we found out all about their new packaging which is gorgeous and simple. If you have me on Twitter you may have seen a look at it there!
Overall I had a lovely time at the #BloggersXmas this year. There were a lot of brands I'd met before so it was nice to have a catch up and see what is new with them and what they've been up to for the last year. The event really got me excited about Christmas, especially now that it's practically around the corner!
Thanks to Kirsty and Jasmine for organising the event and inviting me of course. It was a lovely day and it was lovely to catch up. You definitely got me in the mood for Christmas!
Are you getting all Christmassed up yet?
