Life Update / Bloggers United Event 2017


On the weekend I was fortunate enough to attend the Bloggers United event in Brisbane. I had purchased my ticket a few months ago and was uber excited. On the actual day I was filled with a lot of nerves, albeit I was mostly pumped, but very nervous at the fact that I was going to an event where I didn't properly know anyone. Eeeeek. In the end I gave my self a pep talk on the car journey there and told myself that it won't be as daunting as I think it is. Upon my arrival I met a bunch of lovely girls and felt at ease, us bloggers are all quite similar aren't we?
The event was great - it featured a few brands (such as BYS and Kiehls) which gave information about their brands vision and different products. It also featured two established bloggers on a panel who gave some advice about starting your own business and how to manage blogging. I don't see myself chasing blogging as a full time thing but a lot of their advice was really encouraging and beneficial. It also allowed time for mingling which made me really bond with quite a few other bloggers!

I think that's what I loved most about the event was getting to meet other like minded people. We were all so similar and have such a passion for creativity. It was really refreshing! Hopefully in the next few weeks a bunch of us are going to meet up again which will be great. I feel so cool now that i've finally made some blogger friends!

  • Steph from The Soul Echo (just a gorg blog, her photography is amazing)
  • Alex from Justashine (writes super cool interesting stuff like ingredients in makeup )
  • Shivanni from Quarter Life Crisis (writing about life as a millennial) 
They are just some of the lovely people I met, would definitely recommend checking out their blogs. 
As for makeup this was the look I ended up going with. As it was a blogger event I knew everyones makeup would be ON POINT so I had to lift my game and put in a solid effort. I used my Too Faced chocolate bar palette and came up with this look which is a smokey purple/bronze eye with a pink gloss. 

I had such a wonderful weekend and i'm glad I pushed myself to be brave and go to an event on my own, definitely paid off as I got to meet lots of great people and learn a lot. Alsooo we got given some pretty epic goodie bags which made me feel like a child on christmas morning. Will try a bunch of the products and get back to you on what are the things i'd actually buy myself, some seem really promising! 

Hope everyone had a great weekend :)

  1. I'm so sad I didn't get to go this year! I went last year and it was such an amazing day. I was in Melbourne for the original date but I wish I could've gotten a ticket for the rescheduled day! It's great to hear you had a good time though - it is nerve-wracking meeting new people but it's a lot of fun and everyone's lovely :)
