Over the past couple of weeks, myself and my buddy Nirina joined forces with Aoibhe Devlin of The Secret Obsession Blog to plan a little festive party for our fellow blogger friends – there are just so many of us out there!
After a lot of venue hunting and trying to get the right sponsors for the event, it finally took place on Thursday 20th November in the upstairs lounge of The Opium on Wexford Street, Dublin.
We were absolutely spoilt for whole night: they treated us with a lovely selection of dessert platters and there wasn’t a single blogger who wasn’t holding a glass of wine in their hand – not that I’m encouraging alcoholism here or anything, but their wine just tasted so good!
As well as that, we got a very generous sponsorship from the KOH Coconut team and OKF Ireland, who kindly shared with us some very interesting flavours of their coconut water as well as their infamous aloe vera water – it is absolutely to die for!
Some other sponsors included reputable brands such as Cocoa Brown, Dream Dots for Spots, Sizers, Beverly Hills Formula, Nivea and Popchips. The girls were very lucky to each go home with a goodie bag filled with products from all these brands so I’m really looking forward to getting some feedback from them.
- Dream Dots Dream Dots for Spots
- Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White Black Toothpaste
- Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser, Invisible Deodorant, Fruity Shine Cherry Lip balm
- Sizers Orange & Purple
- Cocoa Brown iPhone Case
- Koh Coconut Coconut Water & Pineapple and Coconut Water & Mango
- Aloe Vera King Natural drink
- Popchips Original and Sour Cream & Onion
The fun didn’t end there! There was also a spot prize for one lucky blogger and the gorgeous Agata of Style Gamblers, who is still very new to the blogging scene, went home with the prize for the best dressed. She looked as festive as ever and I’m really glad she – and the rest of the clan – made such an effort for the event!
