Another Week Another Blogger Event- PS Pre Party

So last week I shared with y'all my attending the House of Fraser Blog event and I talked about stepping out of my comfort zone and just going for it! Well this was kind of the same thing. I only heard about the event Via Michelle (Satchels and Pearls) on twitter at around 10:30 on Saturday night after I'd had a bottle of prosecco and the Event was at 12:30 Sunday so I thought screw anxiety I'm going, however hungover I may be!

The Highlights 

So the event was hosted by the lovely Sarah (link) as a kind of prelude to the Plus North Event which is happening at the end of August. It boasted blogger fun, tutorials and Pizza- what more do you need.

It was held in the Snug Bar at the Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen in Leeds City Centre which is a very shabby chic venue with lots of character.

Some Arty Table Decs

We kicked off with a makeup tutorial from an MUA called Becky. I could watch makeup for hours so this was right up my alley.

Sorry About the Lighting and the Space I was away but you get the jist!

We Moved on to a chat by a Rep from Forever Living- a company with product lines based around aloe vera with a range of gels you drink, skincare, makeup etc which was very informative. I didn't take any pics though oops (bad blogger)

We Then had a lovely chat from Daisy from Hotel Chocolat's Roast and Conch Restaurant in Leeds Trinity (there abouts) about the beginnings of the company, cocoa beans, the chocolate making process etc and had a lovely taste of some canape's and chocolate from the restaurant.

The Menu and a columbian cocoa bean which was yummy

And no self respecting Plus Size Blogger Event would be complete without a fashion show- clothes were provided by Simply Be from the White Rose Centre.

 The Daytime options from the fashion Show


We had a lovely hair tutorial from Anna

And we rounded things off with a quiz and I was gutted my team didn't win!! I have no pics releating to this so I'm going to chuck in some of myself and some of the lovely bloggers I met.

So all in all it was a fun day. I didn't capture much as I was very hungover and tired! I hope you have enjoyed a quick look at what I did get and make sure to have a look at the blogs of the lovely ladies I met!
