FABB Events Manchester!!


I'm going to write this whilst it's all fresh in my mind. I've literally been home about 20 minutes and I know I'm being over keen for writing this so early but I'm so excited about the whole day and need to get my excitement out somehow!

Today I attended the FABB event in Manchester. I got on the train at quarter past 10 this morning to Preston where I met the lovely Laura (www.lisforladybird.com) and we jumped on a train to Manchester! On the way we had a lovely chat with a girl who went to Salford Uni, so it was a great start to the day.

When we got to Manchester we got completely lost. We walked down street after street after street trying to find the venue. I even had GPS on my phone attempting to guide us but to be honest, me and Laura are useless. As we started to get closer to the venue a girl stopped us and asked us if we were going to the blogger event and she showed us where to go! Turns out she was from Tinned Bananas which was one of the brands at the event! We were so lucky to of found her! After a quick cheeky subway we made our way into the venue. We were both so excited, and had absolutely no idea what to expect as it's all kept a secret! 

We met up with Ray (www.ohwhoisshe.com) who is one of the event organisers at the front door and we were told to go inside and get ourselves a drink - needless to say I grabbed myself a vodka and lemonade and downed it within 2 minutes of being there. Dutch courage!

It was strange at first, we had absolutely no idea what to do with ourselves. Everyone was pottered around in groups, drinking and chatting, and suddenly both me and Laura became very shy. It was so overwhelming seeing all these girls there that I follow on blogger, I felt a little starstruck to be honest at a few of the guests, but quickly had to get over that! 

The venue was amazing, and you could tell that both Ray and Tor (www.thatspeachy.com) had put their hearts and souls into organising the event. There was so many people there, and so many brands to look at! We headed to each table and had a chat with each of the people representing the brands, whilst doing that we got a few AMAZING goodie bags and got to sign up for offers and emails ect. It was absolutely fantastic and everyone we spoke to was so incredibly nice and generous, it really made me feel welcomed! We stuffed our faces with some amazing FABB cakes and I drank and drank and drank.

We also spoke to Steph from Tangerine PR and Halo Wipes, she was so lovely and we all had a good gossip together. It was great meeting someone in the PR business with serious experience and I was in awe at everything she had to say.

At the end of the event a few prizes where given away! I was lucky enough to of won some Balance Me body cream, which was SO SO exciting! And then to top it all off we were given another goodie bag! 

All in all, the day was pretty friggin fantastic. I loved every second of it, and it was so nice to see some familiar faces (even if I didn't have the courage to talk to many people.) I really loved it and would definitely go again and urge you all to check out FABB events!
