Blogosphere Christmas Market

Way back in the summer which currently feels like forever, I attended my first Blogosphere Magazine event, the Blogosphere Summer Party. I had such a lovely time, and days later, Blogosphere announced their Christmas Market ... I was literally on it, and had my ticket booked as soon as they went live! This weekend, the date finally came, so I put on my festive jumper, and met up with Jade, Natalie & Hilda to go to the first slot of the day. The market was held at The Strand Gallery, which is a stones throw away from Charing Cross Station. There was festive music, poinsettias, champagne, glittery decoration, candy canes, balloons, novelty glasses ... pretty much everything festive you can think of all under one roof. There were brands exhibiting, including; 
 So Fragrance who had the best balloon decor game going on, and so many gorgeous scents and mists. 

☆ London Tea Company who I had already met at the summer party and fell head over heels for their Peach & Rhubarb flavour, however this time around they were giving out samples of their new wondermint tea and festive flavours. 

☆ Latest in Beauty who had the most festive table decor set with champagne, mini glittery cakes, fairy lights & glitter stars along with all their beauty mini's and advent calendar. 

☆ 7th Heaven Beauty who demonstrated the mini cuticle gloves fantastically whilst wearing the best xmas jumpers and supplied us with a stocking full of masks and goodies. 

☆ Social Superstore who had novelty glasses galore, and a Fujifilm Instax to snap shots on! 

The Blogosphere team were circulating and chatting to everyone, and honestly doing a fantastic job of making sure everyone was okay, and talking to attendees about their blogs and everything Christmas! The editor, Alice was on hand to ask any questions, and we chatted again about Instagram stories, which is still going strong from when we first talked about it in the summer! I had such a lovely time chatting to the brands and spending time with my blogger pals as well as meeting new bloggers and talking to them about their blogs...... after having an awful 'back to work' week, I'd literally forgotten everything from my everyday stresses after a few hours in the best company, and I'm now in the festive spirit too! On top of that, during the train ride home, I was flicking through Issue 10 of Blogosphere and spotted my face twice (but blonde haha!) in the events pullout, which was a surprise!  A huge thank you to Blogosphere for hosting another great event, and I'm definitely looking forward to future events!
