My First Blogging Event | The Bloggers Festival 2015

 
A few weeks ago I attended my first ever bloggers event. I received an invitation from Scarlett from Scarlet London asking if I was interested in going down to London for the Bloggers Festival. Living in the north I do tent to feel a little out of the loop, as there seems to be so much more (blogging-wise) happening down in the south. I managed to get some cheap train tickets however and quickly RSVP'd.
 
I was quite nervous attending the Bloggers Festival on my own, it was a very un-like-me thing to do but my excitement out-weighed my nerves and I didn't want to miss the opportunity. I headed over to the toilet as soon as I arrived at the gorgeous Conrad London St James Hotel, to give myself a last once over and calm down a little bit. Whilst I was in there I got talking to the lovely Heather from 100 Ways To 30 who told me that she had also come alone to the even but had meet up with some other bloggers before hand. She kindly asked if I wanted to join them and in the entrance she introduced me to Ellie from Ellie Ect and Sam from Samantha's Beauty Loves. I am so glad I got to meet these girls as it was so nice to walk around the different stalls with other people and chat about our blogs and get to know each other.
 



 
 
Nearly every stall was holding some sort of Twitter or Instagram competition and so me and Heather took part in the one held by Brodie and Stone.


 
Bee Good are a wonderfully sweet skincare company which use natural ingredients from bees to create all of their products, from honey to the bee hive itself. It was really interesting talking to the girls on the stall and I received a lovely little hand massage whilst being told all about their busy British bees.


















 




 

I really want to thank Scarlett again for all of her hard work in organising the event and for giving me the opportunity to attend. I am so glad that I was able to go to the Bloggers Festival. There were so many amazing stalls at the event and it was so cool to be able to talk to the brands directly and get contacts to hopefully build Madolyn Thinks in to something more. It has really given me a huge confident boost and got me really excited and pumped full of ideas for my blog. I can't wait to properly try all of the goodies that I received from all of the different brands, and will be sure to do full reviews of each one soon.
 
 
Have you attended any blogging events lately?
