Last weekend I attended Pretty Lovely Bloggers Christmas event – Santas Grotto in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. It was being hosted at the Rose Villa Tavern and really bought together a Christmassy feel.
I met up with Charlee and Shaun before the event and went for breakfast. This one wasn’t as instagram as the one we had previously but was definetely delicious. We had a little wonder before heading to the venue and meeting up with some other bloggers.
Kirsty and Adele had got in touch with some fabulous brands who were at the event. The lovely Gemma from Skin Sincere was there and it was fabulous to have a catch up with her. If you’re looking for a cruelty free, simple but effective skin regime, she’s your girl. You can check out how I got on with her products here. We were also introduced to DryU who make fabulous waterproof bags, the Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Company, Lipivir, Friction Free Shaving and many more! There’s gonna be some fab reviews coming up in the next few months so keep your eyes out!
One of my favourite parts of the event was the photography station that Keep Up With the Jones Family was running and offering a chance for us to win a place on her photography course. I’ll be the first to say it, my photography is total pants. I do not know my way round a camera and I heavily rely on sunny weekends and Wilkinson’s flowers to make them look OK. There were so many lovely Christmas props and I didn’t think my attempt was too bad. What do you guys think?
It was fabulous day made even more that we all got to wear our Christmas jumpers. It was lovely catching up with old faces whilst meeting you. Thank you, again, to Kirsty and Adele for organising the event and for the fantastic goody back, which, I will post a picture of.
