This post has been a LOOONNNGGGG time coming.

During September I had a wonderful opportunity to go to a local meetup. I feel like I’ve not been to one for ages!

This one was run by Leah & Gemma both whom I have met before at previous events/meetups.  It was also great to see other girls that I’ve met before and get to speak to them at least a little bit during the day.

The meetup was held at Sobar, an alcohol free bar and restaurant that also helps recovering addicts by giving them a place to work and get experience and help that they may not do otherwise.

We were a few minutes late getting there but as we did they were prepared and were already bringing food out. I had the pulled pork pizza which was so yummy, it was a perfect size just for a mid day meal, not a huge pizza that you then don’t need food for the rest of the day. After food there was chance to chat to Amber who also joined us on the table and say hello to other girls that I’ve previously met at other meetups.

Having paid for our food we headed upstairs to a private room that I presume they use for meetings with addicts we were sat around a table and given a Talk from Suzie from Xenca which was really interesting. She gave us a presentation on all the products and an in depth explanation of the company and then followed up with a tester of all of the Perfection makeup range and the supplements that help your well being from the inside out along with the skincare range. Afterwards we were all treated to the choice of makeup product from the brand, I picked the Mink eyeshadow.

Once we’d had a play around with the products we had a raffle where the money raised was going towards Schools For Parents. I was super lucky enough to win three prizes! It was my very lucky day.
