After everyone had arrived and we’d had time for a quick chat, we were given the first talk of the day from Ian ‘the UK friendly guy!’ He introduced us to two products I’d not come across before: The Ultimate Fix nail spray and the Hello breath spray. I was particularly interested in the nail spray as it is designed to dry each layer of nail varnish you apply so it doesn’t chip as easily. The breath spray was so cutely packaged and the flavour ‘Pink Grapefruit Mint’ certainly sounds interesting so I’ll give it a whirl! Be sure to look out for reviews of these products on Seek My Scribbles in the near future.

After Lekha had talked through all of the products and let us have a little try (I quickly fell in love with the serum) it was time to do the raffle. I was so excited when my number was pulled out but I managed to contain myself, instead letting out a little ‘whoop!’ I’ve won 5 full sized MERUMAYA products (including the serum eee) and I can’t wait to try them out!

Usually people have months to organise these things and they did it in six weeks, which is pretty impressive! I also just want to quickly thank all of the brands that were kind enough to gift us all of the goodies along with Suzie, Ian, Lekha and Lush Nottingham for taking time to talk to us all and share their products with us. Oh and last but not least the Ned Ludd for having us – the food was delicious, so if you’re in Nottingham some time you should definitely go!
I know some people feel really nervous about going to meet ups (I always do too) but if there’s a meet up happening near you, just brave it! It will be so worth it as you get to meet so many lovely bloggers (who you will have lots in common with) and also get to know more about brands you are interested in.
