  • #SheffieldMeetUp – 18.05.13

    2013-05-18 14.31.10

    Last Saturday saw me and Mel (my trusty travel buddy) travelling up to Sheffield for another meetup. Organised by Rachel, Caroline and Charlotte, the plan was to meet at The Homemade Burger Company in Meadowhall at 1, but due to all the roadworks going on in Nottingham at the moment and the traffic we didn’t plan for, we ended up being about 25 minutes late (sorry!).

    Again the plans for this meetup were completely different from others I’ve been to, it was really relaxed. We were spoilt enough to be given a free meal from the Homemade Burger Co, we had a lucky dip giveaway and I won another lovely lush reusable bath stick and then we had chance to talk to people at our table/other tables.

    We were then  able to do as we pleased once we’d finished eating and the only really scheduled thing was a trip to Lush to be shown round their store and given a talk about some of the products they offer and an insight into the ingredients used in the products which was really interesting.

    I’ll leave you with a load of photos taken while there, sorry for the dodgy quality, I think I finally need to invest in a decent camera.

    The Emotional Brilliance range.

    We were lucky enough to be given great goodie bags and I was so excited to see a few extra special products in there. You could tell the care and effort that the girls put into the goodie bags and the event by the little details, especially the really cute handmade tags on the goodie bags. I did have a few other bits and pieces in my bag but I made the mistake of stopping off at my parents on the way home and my mum got her mits on them, I luckily have a full size of most of the things she had off me so its not too bad. She tried to take the Porefessional but I wasn’t going to let that happen! There were also some pain relief patches & gel sachets and as soon as I saw them I knew my dad would appreciate them more than I would so I treated him too (he can’t say he never gets anything out of these things too haha).

    We also got given a few goodies from Lush when we visited too, I’m really excited about trying out the FUN stuff


    Lush goodies.

    I want to thank the girls that organised it, it always amazes me how well they do. It was also really nice meeting Marina, Ashleigh & Hannah (will hopefully get a photo of us all at the table) and thank them for letting us crash their table when we turned up late. It was a shame I didn’t get to talk to more girls but I was in a tizz when we got there it was just nice to chill out and calm down for a bit.
