#Brumbloggermeet14 ;Birmingham Meet Up

Sunday just past I had the chance to go to my first meet up, organised by two lovely ladies, Paige and Jess. I'd spoken to them both on twitter for a while. Agreeing and going to this felt like a big achievement to me as I'm normally a very anxious and shy person, but on the Sunday I was too excited to think about my nerves.
We all met at the bull in the middle of Birmingham and then headed towards Ming Moon. A place I'd never tried before, and although I'm a terribly fussy eater there were plenty of choice at the buffet. After we were given our goody bags with some great treats and before eating we were given a talk by Kirsty Lo a lovely lady, who recently been on Take Me Out, she showed us some of the products from Motives. After a lovely talk and scoffing our faces we all headed back into town for a few hours of shopping.
We all stuck together until we saw all the beauty counters, with everyone heading in different directions. I was finding it a little difficult to look at all the beauty counters because it was a Sunday, which means it's pretty busy. So sadly I didn't pick up any makeup while we were shopping. After loosing everyone else I spent the rest of my day with Sam and I'm glad I did as she is so friendly, easy to get along with and we always had something to talk about. So thanks for keeping me company Sam. 
We did a good amount of shopping in two hours, treating ourselves to some new clothing items.  
After the shopping and when the shops had shut, we headed to Lush. Who'd kept the shop open, gave us fruit and champagne along with a full tour of the store and all the products. 
I'm a newbie to Lush, which shocked almost everyone in the room, oops!? But I was shown the best products and what would suit me best. And came home to lots of pretty and gorgeous smelling products that I've already fallen in love with! 
We spent most of our time with Andrea, who gave us a lovely massage. Seriously I could've sat there all day. But he helped me get to know some of the products, which I purchased and others I'm going to try on my next trip up there. My favourite product of the day was the massage bar; soft coeur (the honeymooner), I'll probably write a post on it later because I'm so in love…it smells like chocolate so in my eyes it's AMAZING!?
I hadn't realised all the products and what they did & I'm so ashamed of myself for not walking into the shop sooner. Before heading home we were handed another goody bag filled with more treats. So I can't wait to start using them and fall in love with more items.

 Thanks so much to Paige and Jess for organising everything. Kirsty Lo for the great presentation & Ming Moon for the food. And to Sam for keeping me company all day and Lush for making a great day even better.
Now I've been to my first meet up I can't wait to go to more and meet and talk with more bloggers. I had lots of products which were part of goody bags along with the cheeky items I brought myself, I'll be writing a separate post of those (hopefully next week).
