What Bloggers Did Next...

am still processing just how wonderful the ‘What Bloggers Did Next’ meet up was.

Never in a million years did I think I would pull this off!

Through the wonder of twitter, Facebook and the blogging community, I can say with a degree of certainty, it was a success.

The back bar of the Hard Rock was fully booked for the day , We had our own tunes
(what says ‘beauty enthusiastic’ like Hakuna Matata in Arabic?)
Cocktails and amazing company.

To be totally honest, when the room was empty I just couldn’t imagine it filling up to max capacity.
The guests started to trickle in around 1 and I put on my hostess with the mostess cap!

It was LOVELY to meet everyone face to face, say hello and have a little hug.
I was lucky enough to have some amazing brands provide me with products to contribute to the goody bag.
Cocoa Brown 
I wanted this to be a ‘mingling’ experience, so with help from Helen Purcell and Catherine Murphy, the tables were set up with a bottle of ‘Cocoa Brown tan night and day ’ per seat , NYC foil explosion Packs on the bar and a table overflowing with Mane’n’Tale goodies.

Once everyone was settled, I made the announcement that we would be making our way to INGLOT in the Jervis Centre to watch a make up demonstration.

As if we didn’t have enough goodies, we were suited and booted with Professional Make Up Artist discount cards and a goodie bag including beautiful pigments AND Nail varnish. 
Exceptionally generous.

The day wasn’t all about taking, I asked around for some sponsorship for  Laura McKenna who is jogging  the Flora Mini Marathon today for St Lukes, an extremely good cause.
I am so delighted with all the contributions and would like to tank you all again for your generosity. 

I didn’t take many pictures as you can see, I really enjoyed the day. If you have any pictures let me know. 
I would LOVE to update this blog and maybe link your blog posts about the day?

Thank you to all who came and for making the day such a success.
I hope you enjoy your goodies.
