#bbloggers Xmas Meet Up

So a couple of weeks ago, i attended the #bboggers Xmas meet, in London.
The event was held in The Reebok Bar in London's Canary Wharf. It was a weird, but nice place, and took AGES to find lol. the first 2 floors of the building were a Waitrose, with the top few floors being the sports club, so there was apparently a gym, pool, spa etc as well as the bar, where the event was held.
The bar looked out on to a temporary ice rink that was surrounded by pretty Christmassy trees, i tried to get some photos, but as it was getting dark outside they didn't come out so well.

I spent the majority of the event with Sara from Pretty In Pink, Which was lovely, it was so nice to get to finally meet some of the bbloggers, and put some faces to names etc.There was so much to see and do at the event, there were a few brands there to chat to, though sadly i didn't get a chance to have a proper chat with them, i did get some press releases to look through.
We were all given a beauty quiz to complete, which was good fun, some of the questions were crazy hard. Do you know what the 'm' in 'Barry M' stands for?! 
Some lovely ladies from Aromatherapy Associates and *i think* soap box pr gave a little talk about the brands they represent and things. While we stuffed ourselves with cake pops, biscuits and pop chips, that were all laid out on the tables for us.

Aromatherapy Associates were giving everyone hand & arm massages, they were so relaxing and the lady doing them was so lovely. There were also people from the spa at the sports club spa doing nail paints, with colours from the OPI Germany Collection, i had mine painted with 'Suzi & The 7 Dussledorfs' a gorgeous purple colour, Sara Chose 'Deutsch you love me baby' a Stunning bright Orange-Red. Mines lasted amazingly well and just this week has started to chip. I completely forgot to take a picture of them, they're all chipped and horrible now.

At the end of the day, everyone there got a goodie bag. A goodie bag and a half, they were actually amazing.
There were actually 2 bags, a bag full of snacky foodie bits and another one crammed full of beauty products.

ProperCorn, I'd actually bought a bag of these the day before if a different flavour, i think Fiery Tomato & Worcester sauce or something, and they were delicious, so i have high hopes for Sour Cream & Chive flavour I love savoury pop corn and its a much healthier alternative to crisps.
I'd not heard of Little Miracles before, this was Organic Energy in Black Tea, Ginseng, Peach and Acai. I didn't notice much in the way of boosted energy, but it did taste quite nice. I've not seen them in any shop anywhere though, have you?
and lastly Pop Chips, i have tried these before because they actually featured in a She Said Beauty Box. They were also laid out on the tables at the event. They are yummmmyyy. Again I've not seen any in any shops near me.

So on to what you've all probably been waiting for the beauty goodies! I wont go in to detail on every product as this post is already quite long and there is literally a million products, as i use them, they'll get reviewed on here. So here goes...
