At the end of my last post, I briefly mentioned the goodie bag that all 10 bloggers received at the end of the event. Now it’s time for you all to see exactly what was in the bag, and from which brands!
Liverpool Bloggers is run by Steph, who organised the whole event and put the amazing goodie bags together. She provided the Baggu bag so that all the other gifts could be kept safely together. They were all personalised with a little name tag so that we all received the right gifts off each brand. Inside we all received a hair wrap, which every girl needs so that you can let your hair dry naturally occasionally. As you can see, mine was bright pink, which I love because it’s super girly and perfect for pamper days. We also got to keep the lipstick pens that we wrote our personalised messages to each blogger with. I love mine and wish I could use it on an everyday basis, but unfortunately mine stopped working half way through my first message (sad face). I still wanted to keep it for memory’s sake though!Here, I photographed the beautiful message cards that Steph provided for us. I thought they were so cute and creative and would be great for any one who is into crafts! I also decided to bring home a pink lip selfie prop, which again is for memory’s sake.Finally, one of my favourite gifts from the night. This beautiful photo inso-frame. I absolutely love a good inspirational quote and this one especially. I definitely believe in following your dreams, and only doing something if you love what you’re doing! I’ve got this up next to my t.v. so that I can be inspired by it everyday.
The Vintage Corner
From the Vintage Corner, we were all lucky enough to receive a £10 gift voucher! I’m so happy with this because I absolutely adore vintage shops, and £10 can go a long way. I’ve seen a lot of their stuff posted on Twitter so you could have a sneak peek there. If you want to check The Vintage Corner out in person, they are located at 61 St Johns Road in Waterloo, Liverpool.

Inky Trail is a unique online store, mainly focussed on beautifully designed, logo t-shirts. As this brand is growing, more items are becoming available such as bags and more still to come. We all received 10% of our next shop at Inky Trail. Keep an eye out because I will be making my first purchase as soon as I can choose between the fab designs from this brand!

Gifts For Me And You
Each blogger received a unique, handmade gift from Gifts For Me And You. My gift was this bright, paisley patterned cushion with mini pom-poms all around the edge. This cushion suits me down to a t because I am a big fan of patchwork quilts which goes perfectly with this cushion. The colours are so fun and match my favourite duck egg blue and pale pink bed covers! We all also received 10% off our next visit, which means we can all get another beautiful gift either for ourselves or friends or family. I think I will be using mine for a gift because with them being handmade it feels like the gift can be a bit more personal. If you’d like to see what else Gifts For Me And You have to offer (from 22 crafters!) head over to 120 Seabank Road in New Brighton!

Noctua has a gorgeous range of handmade crystal jewellery, and they also offer different crystals for luck, protection, happiness, etc. I have loved crystal jewellery for quite a while now, as I love the boho feel they give to an outfit. I received this necklace in my goodie bag, which also has a gold leaf with the crystal. I feel like this necklace has a real earthy feel to it which is great because I love all earthy and neutral toned colours at the moment! So no doubt this is going to go with all and any outfits I wear.
Beauty Bazaar, Harvey Nichols
Beauty Bazaar, Harvey Nichols really outdid themselves with their collection of goodies! When I was handed the personal beauty bag they’d provided, I couldn’t believe the weight of it. In my bag I received the following:

Gucci Bamboo Tester: I’m a fan of Gucci perfumes anyway! I’ve previously owned Gucci Guilty and Gucci Premiere so I was excited to try this one. It did not disappoint! It has a very feminine, dusky smell – which is exactly what I want in a perfume!
Nails Inc nail varnish: This didn’t have a colour or number on it, but it is a neutral-mink-grey colour, which you already know is what I’m all about!
he-shi Express Liquid Tan: I go through phases of using fake tan and not using fake tan. But just because Beauty Bazaar, Harvey Nichols gave me one, I’m gonna get back to fake tanning! This smells lovely, unlike a lot of fake tans. It has a creamy consistency which is almost like a body lotion so I’ve got a feeling this is going to be easy to apply!
Estes Lauder Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser, Soft Clean Silky Hydrating Lotion, and Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Cream: After removing my makeup, I’ve been using these as a three step skin care routine. Firstly, they smell unreal. Secondly, they are super soft and hydrating on the skin. Thirdly, they’ve reduced the redness and blemishing that I’m prone to. What more can you ask for?
Cellex-C Very High Protection Broad Spectrum Oil-Free Sunscreen: As someone who suffers from combination-oily skin, and breaks out if sunscreen goes anywhere near my face, I am extremely excited to try this! It feels almost like sudocreme, just not as thick and smells a lot nicer. It doesn’t have a strong scent at all, but it just smells like cream.
Environ AVST Travel Pack ((Cleansing Lotion, Moisturising Toner, Hydrating Lotion, Vitamin A, C & E Body Oil): I’ve saved what I think is the most exciting for last! I’ve heard so much about Environ skin care products recently and can’t wait to try this. The AVST range provides products contain vitamin A and antioxidants that nourish the skin. I wanted to try these and the Estee Lauder products separately so that I could get a real feel for what they do. Once I’ve finished my Estee Lauder products I will be trying and reviewing these so keep an eye out!
