The Bloggers Love Hub (Monday 3rd November)

On Monday I headed over to Mahiki in Green Park for the first Bloggers Love Hub. Tucked away underground in one of London's cooler night clubs, the event was all about networking with fellow bloggers as well as meeting brand representatives and being given the opportunity to try out some of their products. I met up with my friend Charlotte from Captain Ch-ARGH-ley and also spotted some girls that I've met before - including Lucie (who was one of the hosts for the evening), Olivia and Renata. It was a lovely place to mingle and network and if I'd been a little bit more confident I could have met many new bloggers (some of whom I probably already follow on twitter - it seems impossible to match faces to twitter handles). I did, however, have the pleasure of meeting Helen (MelonLady) and Leanne (Leanne Walker), both of whom I follow on twitter. They were there representing The Blogger Programme, which I have now signed up for.

I also had the pleasure of discovering some new brands including Ndulge, Madame LA LA, Charcoal Spa and Glow Beads - some of whom very kindly gifted me items to take home. I've already tried Charcoal Spa's Detoxifying Face Mask and it has the most unusual (but pleasant) mousse texture that makes it much less harsh on the skin that some other clay masks I've tried before. Charcoal Spa has actually only just been launched so I feel really lucky to have been able to try one of their products. I've also really been enjoying the bracelet that Katherine from Glow Beads kindly gifted me and it really does glow in the light! I have't had an opportunity to try out Madame LA LA's fake tan but I love the idea of a bronzed rather than tangoed look and the ingredients (which include coconut water) really intrigued me!

All in all it was a lovely evening and I'm definitely going to be attending some of the others as there is an event every Monday throughout November - if you're going too then let me know and hopefully I'll see you there!

  1. It was lovely seeing you again and I'm happy to see that I've made it onto your blog post! :) :) I also find it really hard to match faces to blogs, which is why I go to these events and think that everyone looks familiar!

    Also, you make me want to try my Charcoal Mask now, I'm intrigued.

  3. It was so lovely to see you again. That event was like a mini Bloggers Tea Party reunion. :D Thanks for the mention. ;) I had a good time and really enjoyed getting to know some new brands I had not heard of yet. Not sure I'm going to any of the other days anymore, though. :( Thought I'd let you know. xx

  12. How fun does this event look!? I've been to a few blogger networking events in Chicago, and I'm always so nervous beforehand! But I'm always so pleased and surprised over how sweet everyone is. It's so nice to talk to a bunch of other girls that are super passionate about blogging- I can literally chat about it for hours and hours :)
