#hertsbedsmeet - What did we get up too?

If you follow me on twitter (or any of the fellow bloggers) then you'll know that last Sunday was our first Herts/Beds blogger meet up! For some of us it was actually our first ever bloggers meet up, and can I just say, it was so much fun! 

After so much planning, prep, trying to finalize a date ect, we met up, chatted, shopped and it honestly felt like all of us had been friends forever! All these girls were so genuine and we had such a lovely time! 

We decided to meet in a central location for us, outside a lush shop. It was baking hot and we were all dressed up for the occasion! I have to admit that whilst walking from the car to Lush my heart was pounding and I was so nervous that people wouldn't like me ect ect, but once I saw the girls and started chatting, all those fears melted. 

After a mooch around shops such as TK Maxx, The Body Shop and New Look we headed over to Lush. We introduced ourselves as beauty bloggers and the staff were so friendly! They gave us demonstrations of products, talked us through different scents of there perfume range, where I did infact fall in love with one called The Sun, which as it happens I'm off to buy today! While we were in there making various purchases, a reporter from the local paper turned up to take photos for the Guinness World Record Attempt that Lush tried to do the day before, by trying to collect the most amount of kisses using their lip pouts! We got involved in the pictures, but sadly we did not feature. But it was all good fun anyway! We walked away from lush having had a lovely experience, and they had even thrown in a few samples for us! Which was really lovely of them!

Bex seriously has the cutest little boy ever! And he gives lovely cuddles!

We then went into Benifit, Bare Minerals, Boots and superdrug where we all swatched like crazy! I think by the end of the day my hand was so pink from all the lipsticks. We also popped into Clinton Cards, where I think we all fell in LOVE with the Yankee Candle range and most of us brought at least one candle. Again I'm off to buy one today! 

Now, you've heard of a bloggers hype? Well on this day, we created one! On a casual trip to Champneys, one of us picked up a lushcious body scrub, which was on special for just £2.50. Now when I say this smelt amazing. my god did it smell amazing! Review of this to come later, but 10 out of 12 of us picked this up! It is so good, so if your ever in a champneys, pick up the Distant Shore body scrub with passion fruit!

Space NK was next on the agenda, I have to admit I've never ever been into Space NK before and now I'm starting to wonder why! I fell in love with so many things! I have such a long wishlist now! 

After we had all tired out in the heat and shopped till we had dropped we went the our local pub/bar for a spot of lunch, of course picking the best spot for lighting and taking pictures! I can honestly say that I had a really good day, and it did feel like all of us girls had known each other for a long time, no awkwardness at all! We're planning another meet before christmas, and I cannot wait for this! 

Who went;

I really hope you go check all these girls out as they're so amazingly talented and kind! Also, get in touch if you do live in the herts/beds area as we're planning a few more meet ups in the near future! :)
