#BlogConLDN

Hey guys,

This week I attended Blog Con London and had such a fabulous time! This was the first time I had travelled to London on my own, so I was a bit worried, but I managed to navigate my way through the tube and arrived raring to go!

It was great to hear some good advice by experienced bloggers who were doing talks on the day about how to turn your blog into a profession and how to work more with brands. There was the opportunity to network with brands too. However, I have to say what I loved most was actually meeting so many other people who have similar interests. I saw a few familiar faces, got to hang out with people I have become friends with online and also met bloggers who were new to me. All round it was lovely and Scarlett, the organiser, did a great job. She runs a few of these blogger events every year so if you are interested in attending click here to visit her website.

There were many brands there on the day. One I really loved was Love Inc Ltd. They sell gifts and home furnishings, like this neon light which can be personalised to any style and font.


I also got to visit the Chi Chi London stand. They sell beautiful clothing and accessories. I literally wanted to take all their dresses home with me. If you want something that will stand out, but is chic at the same time, be sure to check them out.


I also got talking to the lovely girls at the Johnny Loves Rosie stand. The jewellery and accessories speak for themselves. So beautiful and perfect for any occasion. I am particularly loving their bridal range at the moment and was blown away by the quality and price of some of the items.


We were lucky enough to be gifted samples from some of the brands. One that stood out was Lola's Apothecary. Not only because of the aroma that was coming from the stall but the beautiful display they had put on. I was able to take away one of their mini massage oils but was told it can be used as a perfume too. How pretty does it look!


Here are a few of the products we were gifted with on the day:

Products gifted by Natural World and Mashooq Hair
Products gifted on the day by Exuvaince, Merumaya, Lola's Apothecary, Johnny Loves Rosie, Lipivir, Sexy Hair, Chi Chi London

I am really looking forward to trying out these products so keep an eye out on posts in the future as I am sure they will feature. We were also given a goody bag which contained the teeth whitening system by White Glo, which I am probably most excited about. I need it! ;o)


All in all I had a great day socialising and chatting to like minded people, which is probably what I enjoyed most.  So if you want to network with brands and other bloggers it's definitely worth going.  The event was new but I can see it growing year by year. I think next time I might try a different Scarlett event like, The Bloggers Ball.

I will let you know how I get on testing the products. Do any of these products interest you? Let me know which ones intrigue you and I'll be sure to review them!
