After spending a while chatting, we got down to business with our first speaker Giovanna from Cloud 10 Beauty . She was lovely and told us all about the new products they have in for Christmas, including products from eos, Kardashian Beauty, Real Techniques and Ciaté. We were lucky enough to get a Kardahian Beauty lipgloss, a Sleek eye dust and a Ciaté nail varnish/Christmas tree Decoration in our goodie bags (I'm hoping my sister, the make-up enthusiast, will do a review on these for me soon!).
The next speaker we had was Aoibhe from The Secret Obsession, and I have to say she was pretty inspirational. Aoibhe has a really successful blog that she's on everyday, but not only that, she also works as a branch manager in Brown Thomas and is in her final year of college, amazing! She sent out the message to us all that if we want to be successful, we can be, we just need to put in the hard work to get there.
Then there came the spot prizes, a Real Techniques set and a spa treatment. The lucky winners were Elisha of Always-Time-For-Tea and Marléne (very jealous!!)
Before finishing up the afternoon I had the pleasure of meeting Nicola of The Sequin Cinderella who shared with us some stories of the highs and lows of her blogging career.
We finished the afternoon with a round of photographs and a promise to meet again soon.
What I Wore:
My fabulous make-up was done by my sister, Ailbhe. We went for a purple/brown/black smoky eye look which I loved!
