Suffolk Blogger Meet

On Saturday I attended my second blogger meet in Suffolk hosted and organised by the lovely Daisy. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Daisy for putting on such an amazing event, I had a great time and was really made to feel welcome the whole time I was there. I took most of these photos on my iPhone so I apologise for the quality or lack thereof!

I arrived in Bury St. Edmunds at around 12:15, with the event due to start at 1. I was surprised at how quick I drove there, less than an hour from Norwich I wondered why I hadn’t been here before, the shopping centre looked awesome, I'll have to come back for a shopping trip. I had a quick look on twitter under the hashtag #SuffolkBloggerMeet and found out that Hannah from The Life of Pye had also arrived already and was waiting in Costa. I went and met up with her and was so thankful I didn’t have to walk in alone. We arrived at the venue just after 1 and headed upstairs where I met Lucy from Lucy Loves and the three of us drifted around the stalls together.

The first stall I spotted was the gorgeously laid out stall from Ivy-Joan home. I wanted everything, it was so up my street. If it wasn’t so far away from payday I would have splurged! They sell the most amazing unique cards, beautiful framed pictures and great little gifts. If you're looking for Christmas presents that are different from the norm, definitely check them out.

We then went to The Charity Candle Company stall which had some lovely candles. I picked up a little sample in the Spiced Orange scent which was GORGEOUS. I wish I would have bought a full sized candle, this scent is perfect for Christmas and £1 from each sale goes to charity.

The third stall I visited was the Odylique stall, a brand I haven’t heard about before but uses all natural ingredients. I loved sampling the little tester pots and when I was told that the ingredients in the coconut scrub were edible, I couldn’t resist a little taste! I also received a Rose Hydrating Cream in my goody bag which I can’t wait to try.

I then headed to the Yoohoo Mail stall which was hosted and created by Daisy’s mum. There was some really gorgeous and unique pieces here, and I’m really tempted to get myself a subscription box being an absolute stationery fiend! We were all given a lovely postcard at the end which is going to take pride of place on my desk when I eventually get one!

The final stall was the Lipivir stall, and I was given a sample of their cold sore prevention cream which will come in handy this time of year. It was really interesting hearing about the product and how well it can work.

There were also little tables set up with things that we could take which was really nice. I got a lovely owl shaped cookie cutter from Sass & Belle and a Twig & Dot candle in the scent Deep Calm, which smells gorgeous and makes me feel instantly relaxed. I'm going to be collaborating with Twig & Dot very soon so I will do an in depth review of their scents then. I also got a bottle of Orange Life Tonic drink a marshmallow ghost and a Suffolk Blogger Meet cookie which all tasted awesome. I ate my weight in Hotel Chocolat truffles too.. oops!


I then headed to the selfie station, a great place to relax and take silly photos. Here I met Hannah and Emily who were both absolutely lovely. We were then joined by Gemma and her friend Kirsty who I didn't get to speak to properly but were really friendly, as was everyone I met, sorry if I haven't included you in this post.

We were then given our amazing goodie bags by Daisy's little helpers Emma and Karen, filled to the absolute brim with some amazing samples and products. I will have to do blog posts on individual brands or else I’ll be here all day, but you can see the sheer volume of the items in this photo. I can’t believe how lucky we were to get all of these amazing goodies. The bag in itself was a great gift!

Daisy had sourced some amazing raffle prizes ranging from a Magnitone to chocolate to perfume, there was something for everyone. I managed to win some little bars of IQ Chocolate, I’ve already eaten a couple of them and they’re really good. Thanks again Daisy for organising such a fantastic day, I loved every minute and it was so nice to meet even more lovely bloggers!
