Lifestyle | Nottingham Blogger Meet-Up

Bloggerssecretsanta14

On Saturday 15th November I had the pleasure of attending the Nottingham Blogger Meet-Up or #Bloggerssecretsanta14 as it was known as. The Meet-Up was organised by the Lovely Hannah (HannerKing) and Em (DinosBeauty).

Me and my friend Becca (xBeccaBe) Headed down on the tram to Ned Lunn where the meet was taking place. We were lead to a room upstairs that the girls had decorated beautifully, you could tell a lot of thought and energy had been put into this event.

The Tables were set with Candy canes and Crackers to enforce the Secret Santa side of our meet, it was the perfect d├ęcor for the event. We were given a welcome drink and then took to our seats ready for the first speaker to begin.


The First Speaker was Ian (Known as the Friendly Guy, so true!). He had two Products which he wanted to talk to us about. The first one being The Ultimate Fix, a nail setting spray with a twist in technology.

The Ultimate Fix

The trick with this product is to apply to all coats of your polish, not just the last one! A review will be coming soon so keep your eyes peeled for that one!

The second Product Ian spoke about was the Hello Breath Spray, A newer product with a take on the old-style breath freshening sprays but brought into a modern era with brilliant packaging and new flavours! Again a review shall follow this post soon.

The second speaker was Lekha from a  skincare brand named MeruMaya which she informed us actually derived from a combination of special family members' names. I absolutely love the concept behind this and think it makes the brand much more personable.

Lekha was very interactive and informative in the way she spoke about MeruMaya, she explained that the brand is very honest in the way they advertise and the ingredients that they use. She passed around each of the products for us to try and get a feel of. All of which smelt beautiful!


Here she is testing out one of the products on our lovely host Hannah. MeruMaya were extremely generous, in the fact they gave us all some samples of the line to take home and try for ourselves. I am especially keen to try the Serum and the Melting Cleansing Balm which I've heard nothing but good things about.

Once Lekha had finished her excellent talk we had a mini interlude in which we ordered some food (I had a chickpea sandwich, it was that good I forgot to photograph it!), chatted amongst ourselves and prepared for Suzy's talk on the brand Xenca.

Suzy gave an amazing talk on nutrition and how it can affect us both on the inside and outside. The product she specifically spoke about is the Five a Day+ which is a nutrition powder containing some superfoods such as Chlorella and Spirulina. She also shared that through research it has been proven that using the Xenca Five a Day+ you can reduce your cellular age by 13.5 years! We got to sample some of the powder mixed with orange juice. At first I was sceptical just by the colour of it, but it actually tasted really good with the juice!



Xenca Five a Day+

I have currently trialled the Five a Day + for 4 days now and Suzy recommended that in over a week I should be able to see a differences in my energy levels. I cannot wait to share the results with you.

The fourth and final talk of the day were by one of my favourite brands, Lush. Holly, Ivy and Charlie did an excellent talk on the principles that Lush hold specifically in terms of their values against animal testing, one of the reasons I love Lush. After the talk we were able to get up and have a go at making our own Bath Bomb.


Lush Big Blue

I made a 'Big Blue', I can't wait to run a nice hot bath and use it!

Before Lush left they let us have a sneaky peek at their Christmas collection, one that really caught my eye was this 12 days of Christmas box, it's now added to my wish list...


We were really spoilt and were given a goodie bag full of amazing samples to go home and try!

It Truly was an amazing day, especially being my first ever meet-up, I would like to thank Hannah and Em for organising the whole thing, they did such a brilliant job and it went perfectly. I hope to attend another one soon and meet some more of you fellow bloggers!
