The Bloggers Hangout | My first bloggers event with Angie Walks!


Angelina from Angie Walks took to the Bloggers Fashion Week event hosted at the iconi OXO Tower by The Bloggers Hangout! I've walked past and seen the OXO Tower from afar many many times but never had the chance to see the interior, so I just knew I had to go when Angelina told me where it was going to be!



When we arrived, we were greeted by the loveliest door man who checked Angeline and her plus one (ahem, ME!) off the guest list. Once we were through the doors, I felt like I was in bloggers paradise! There were many beauty and fashion brands that were there to share their products with us, a lot of them were just launching or about to launch in the UK so it felt like we were all apart of an exclusive first look club! I have to give credit to the brand ambassadors as all of them were so passionate and knowledgeable about their brand and I felt like they really believed in they had to offer, this energy immediately fired up my interest in what they had to say (and if they want to gift me too, I don't mind. Ha!). I just love hearing the stories and what inspired them to create!

I know for a fact that the gifting lounge is probably the highlight of most bloggers night, and let's be honest... Who doesn't like a cheeky gift?! I will be doing individual posts for each brand and gift but here are some photographs from the evening.



MIGLIO Jewelry.
Our first stop was at MIGLIO Jewelry, I absolutely fell in love with their handmade pieces! The ambassador (the lady in the first photo) at MIGLIO was so friendly and lovely, she gave us a lot of interesting information and was so kind to gift us an adorable necklace each! I will feature my gift in a separate blogpost with more details about the brand soon but do have a look at their website here in the meantime.

Halo Hair Extensions
Halo hair extensions looks so extremely awesome. It is a new (it's the first time I heard of it) innovative type of hair extension that does not require glue, heat, or even clips! Don't believe me? Well prepare to get your mind blown and click here to watch this 'how to' video.


Valmont Cosmetics
Valmont is a luxury cosmetics brand that is very much inspired by Switzerland's natural resources. They are known for their signature anti ageing skincare range but have recently brought out a new line of gorgeous perfumes! I could not stop smelling their perfumes. I also got the cutest gift bag from Valmont so there will be a very exciting blogpost with more details coming soon!



Maison Ves candles
As you all know, I am a huge fan of candles! So when I saw Maison Ves, I was over the moon with excitement! Maison Ves have the most wonderful candle scents, my favourite one will have to be the #Christmas candle, which naturally smelt of all things Christmas in a sleek and sophisticated jar. These candles were inspired by hashtags, and how it has become apart of our everyday life. There are little hashtag messages printed along the bottom of the candle. I absolutely adore the packaging, it's such an elegant and simple design with a subtle fun twist. I think that these would make a perfect gift and there is one for everyone and every occasion!

Little Ondine Nail Polish
Little Ondine is a new nail polish brand that was put together by a group of young designers. Their polishes are unique because they are created entirely with natural ingredients only, which means they are almost odourless, so say goodbye to that strong chemically fueled scent that comes with beautiful nails. Another unique selling point of these polishes is that they are designed in a way that you can peel them off, so can also say goodbye to nail polish removers too!


Boadicea The Victorious Luxury Perfume
Boadicea The Victorious is a timelessly classic luxurious perfume brand that just has the most elegant packaging. All the bottles are created by traditional British craftsman and each bottle is truly unique in itself. I felt sheer elegance when holding their bottles. The bottle with the word 'FOUR' accross it is one of four new scents that they will be launching. I can't quite describe the scent but if you walk past any Boadicea The Victorious counter, be sure to go and have a sniff for yourself as it is 100% worth it. 'Four' stood out to me the most because of it had its own distinct colour, it is also predicted to be the best seller out of the new collection so be sure get your hands on it while you can!


Gallardo & Blaine Designs
Gallardo & Blaine Designs have the most beautiful jewelry designs! They say diamonds are a girls best friend but not every girl can afford diamonds so pretty, shiny, sparkly semi precious stones would be equally as pleasing! I did have a lot of fun gazing at all the gorgeous pieces but I think my favourite will have to be the leaf ring in Mystic Topaz and Moonstone. The lovely lady did give us a little treat so do stay tuned for more.

True Brit London Nail Polish
True Brit London is a luxurious nail enamel brand that is proud to be British. Their brand is very much inspired by the cultural city of London and you can see that throughout the range. I was so excited when I came across this brand because they just had the most irresistible colours! We got a little rose gold shade as a gift and it is just so on trend and honestly to die for, can't wait to share it with you all!


I also got a little something from Kleem Organics but being the silly that I am, I forgot to take a photo of their stand but there will be a post coming soon.


Selfie!
I genuinely had such an amazing time. I think my favourite part of the event would have to be the general bloggers atmosphere. We were in a room filled with like-minded people so I felt extremely comfortable especially when it came to taking and posing for photographs. I don't know what it is but I'd normally feel embarrassed in an everyday setting if I wanted to take a photo... and don't even get me started on #Selfies, it's just so awkward! However, because we were at an event filled with bloggers, I just felt like it would be wrong if you weren't taking any photos! Everyone was getting stuck in and getting to know each other, was just a wonderful community to be a part of.

Until next time,
Grace
