This week has been a very exciting week for me in terms of blogging events. On Saturday, a few of us bloggers that are based in the Midlands met up for the #XmasBloggerMeet in Birmingham that I'd organised. It was great to see some familiar faces and to also meet a few new ones too. I'll link to everyone at the end of this post.

We started off the afternoon in Starbucks which has become a bit of a tradition for meets in Birmingham. We spent a good hour or so introducing ourselves and getting to know each other over a festive drink and then we headed out into the cold to find the Francesco Group Academy. Sunny had kindly got in touch with the salon and had organised a treat for us all. We all had our hair washed, blow dried and styled by the lovely staff including the senior stylist and trainees, while we enjoyed a glass or two of bubbly and some mince pies and cakes. We had a lovely time, the staff were all so nice and it was good to have a bit of a pampering session as I don't normally have my hair done like that. I chose to have my hair done in a wavy style, which I loved however my hair is usually and the waves soon disappeared! We got some really nice goody bags and there was also a prize draw which I'm thrilled to say that I won! I won a Wella Anti-Static hairdryer which I've used and can confirm is amazing. I definitely recommend checking out the Francesco Group Academy, the atmosphere was lovely and I'll be booking myself in for a trim over the next few weeks.

After the salon, we headed to the German market although we didn't last long as it was so so busy. Instead, a few of us went over to Bar Room Bar in the Mailbox for some cheeky cocktails and a meal which was delicious and very reasonably priced.

Overall, it was a fantastic day. Thank you so much to everyone who turned up, I hope we can all arrange something again soon!
