Lincs Blog Meet | A lovely day in my hometown

I had such a lovely day last Saturday at the Lincs Blog Meet. Organised by Bel from Journeys Are My Diary and Amy from Cocktails in Teacups the plan was a treasure hunt around Lincoln, a delicious meal at Ask Italian, followed by a raffle, beauty swap and talks from Boots and Weleda. I got to meet some lovely local bloggers as well as catch up with the girls from Hull who I’ve sort of been adopted by the past few months! The weather was lovely and sunny (although arguably not such a good thing when we were trekking up Steep Hill) making the photos of the Cathedral quarter and the Lincolnshire Artists Market come out great. The meal was lovely too: Ask managed to organise it pretty well considering they were catering for about 20-25 people. I had a margareta pizza and a sprite because I’m not very adventurous (which is a good job on my student budget!). Before and after the meal we had talks from a company called Weleda and a skin specialist from Boots came in and gave us a whistle stop tour of the skin and gave us loads of samples and then I got lucky in the raffle and won some amazing PAPERSELF Paperlashes. I also managed to get loads of great new products in exchange for some of my old/brand new ones in the beauty swap. This post will be followed by a post of all the great products I received from Boots, the raffle, the beauty swap and the goody bag! 

Once again thank you so much to the girls who organised it and the companies who were involved – you made my first blogger meet extra special.
