Last Saturday I headed east to Nottingham for the #NottsBloggerMeet which was organised by Becka and Sophie. I was quite nervous as I'd only met the organisers and a couple of other people before and I don't really know any bloggers in the East Midlands area. However, there was no need for me to worry as Sophie had saved me a seat next to her in Zizzis and I had a great time.
First of all, we had a talk from a cosmetics company, Harlequin Cosmetics. They're a family run business started by Becky when she was 14, who specialise in luxury skincare and cosmetics, including body butters, shower gels and soaps. Some of the products were passed around for us to have a sniff (and a try when it came to the body butters) and I think we all agreed that they smell delicious. I was especially taken by the yellow shower gel, Citrus Burst which is packed full of lemon and grapefruit and would be great for a morning shower. When I've worked my way through the shower gels I've got at the minute, I'll definitely be placing an order for a bottle of Citrus Burst.
Next up was the food. We'd all pre-ordered so the food came out quickly and without any problems. For my first course, I had the Italian Bread Bucket which might as well have been served in a bucket, the amount there was and I was so hungry that I ate it all. For my main, I had a Diavola pizza (pepperoni, roquito chillis and green chillis) which I struggled to eat after all the bread, I managed to eat more than half though. It was delicious and not too hot, I love a good spicy pizza. My dessert was gelato and after eating so much for the other two courses, I only ate the chocolate scoop which was amazing. If the other two had been chocolate, I'm sure I would have eaten them both as well.
After the meal, we left the restaurants with our massive goody bags and we all split up to go shopping. I ended up spending the rest of the day with Sophie and both of us don't really know Nottingham at all so we basically went round in circles for about four hours, oops. We hit up MAC, Space NK and Boots which meant I spent quite a bit of money.
It was a fantastic day and I can't wait until the next meet up which is this Saturday in Birmingham with a different bunch of girls. Blogger meet ups are always so much fun!
