A few weeks ago I attended the annual Dublin Blogger Meet Up. This year it was hosted by the amazing Sarah form Adoreabubbles.
What I really enjoyed about this year’s blogger meet up was that it was open to any blogger, unlike other meet ups where it seems a certain amount of people are invited and that's that.
Sarah really went all out and I can't thank her enough for such a lovely day, it was really fantastic to meet other bloggers in person and put a face to the name. The plan for the day was to meet at 12pm at either the spire or the GPO if it was raining, and of course it was bucketing down! I was about ten minutes late which was slightly embarrassing as everyone was deep in conversation when I arrived so kind of awkward, after a quick introduction we all huddled under the GPO chatting away about anything and everything and waited for a few more bloggers to arrive.
Sarah gave each and every one of us our own goodies bag! This was really unexpected! It even had our names on it which was quite handy if you forgot someone’s name (something I always do!) After about an hour of catting we headed to LUSH to check out the new Emotional Brilliance range. It is a really unique way of looking at make up; Sarah goes into more detail about it here.
We where then asked what our favourite colour was as they where doing some research, when it was time to go and head to our next destination a few staff members arrived whit large bags containing our favourite colour and a mascara!

We then went on to Arnotts, where we were greeted by the lovely Gemma from Benefit, who demonstrated the prep, prime and prefect routine on Alycia. It is basically the best way to prep your skin for make up to achieve that flawless look even with bad skin! After Gemma finished demonstrating on Alycia she went through a few new products, one which really caught my eye was the new lip glosses range. They are in no way sticky and you can match them to your favourite blush, you can find out more here.
After that we headed to the Church for a bite to eat, it is located just at the bottom of Henry Street. I was amazed by how beautiful it is on the inside and shocked by how reasonably priced it was. I have walked past the restaurant for years and have always thought of it as being a high end type place. The food its of a really good quality as well. This is the point where we all got to know each other a little bit better.
Slowly but surly our group started to shrink, after looking around the Jervis shopping centre a few of us decide to go for a few drinks to end a wonderful day.
