I was super lucky to be invited to the raved about #northmeetup! It was hosted and organised by Em Sheldon (visit her blog here) and she couldn't have done a better job! It was hosted in Deansgate Lock Revolution Bar in Manchester which is a beautiful venue and we got treated to 2-4-1 cocktails all day! Being a lightweight I only had 2 cocktails and felt a kick so I thought I better leave it at 2! 

I met the most amazing girls there, the lovely Bryony, Jessica, Hannah and the best dressed girl there, Charlotte. I was super nervous about going, being the youngest there but I'm so glad I plucked up the courage and went. All the girls really were lovely and friendly (and have absolutely amazing blogs - NORTHERN TALENT!)

We had talks from Xen-Tan and GlamGlow and Arbonne, which were very enlightening. I absolutely cannot wait to try the products! Reviews will all be coming soon! Between the talks us girls drank and talked and went to visit all the little corners each with it's own little treats. As you will be able to see below, I picked up goodie bags from Arbonne, So In Fashion and more from around the balcony. I also got my nails done, talked with Near-Wolf's representative about my hair, in which she gave me some really good advice and got some advice about 'the perfect eyebrow arches' from a lovely eyebrow specialist! 

(We got a sample of the moroccan self-tan, so lets hope I get rid of my streaky fake tan phobia!) 

(I also got a sample of the mud mask!)

I also walked away with one of these (not all of them of course!) 

Here's what I wore:

(I know I look very summery compared to the weather behind me but the forecast said 'sun' and this was taken when I got back so it was getting dark!)

necklace - EBay, shirt - charity shop, jacket - H&M, bag - H&M, trousers - mango, shoes - Primark, ring - Topshop 

This is all my goodies, I am very very lucky and grateful to receive all these things and I will be doing numerous reviews and give aways so keep checking this space!
