I recently went to my first ever blogger event and it was so much fun! The sun was shining, I had my favourite blogger gals with me and the weekend was in full swing. Let’s go!
All thanks to the wonderful Scarlett London, the girls and I had such a nice day meeting with so many brands while enjoying a bubbly or two with other bloggers. This year, the Bloggers Ball was held in the Trading House, London.
The venue itself was a wonder if it own. Located right in the heart of city, in Bank, stepping into Trading House was like hopping onto a time capsule where you’re about to set off on voyage around the world. The decor had very rustic settings and as we walked in, the bar was placed right in the centre of the restaurant. The brands were positioned all around the sides both on the ground floor and up in the mezzanine. The drinks were flowing all day long and there were delicious canapès served throughout the duration of the event.
The mezzanine was my favourite part because it had such a nice view of the entire venue from the top. This also quickly became our hotspot for taking pictures on our phones and rest for a while from all the hustle and bustle from the party down below. The brand were all so accommodating and ran quite a few interesting demos. There were also a couple of photo booths across the floor which are always fun when you’re with your girls.
I really liked the variety of brands that were at the event. It was nice to see a mix of fashion, beauty, food and tech brands represented at the ball so every stand we went to had interesting stories to tell.
One of our favourites was the the Sandisk team who were doing a workshop on flat lay photography. The above is a super cute group picture we took at the Sandisk red carpet photo booth. My girls: Ellen, Cindy & Richa fully in formation right there as always!
Sandisk also gifted us with such a neat piece of tech that I have completely fallen in love with – the iXpand flash drive, available both for androids and iPhones. This was exactly what I needed at the time as I always run out of space on my phone. Since having the iXpand flash drive, I have been able to clear out a lot of memory on my phone and I can now have a safe and secure storage space for all the photos and videos I’ve accumulated over the years.
Below are some of the treats we got given in our goodie bags. I am really excited to try out my teeth whitening kit from White Glo. I’ve seen so many reviews on lots of teeth whitening kits lately so I’m looking forward to seeing how I’ll get on with this kit.
The Bloggers Ball was so much fun and a great way to spend such a lovely afternoon surrounded by great brands and a network of such like-minded creatives who were all so nice and friendly. I am definitely looking forward to many more events like this in the future.
