The pit of my week last week was definitely having my almost brand new iphone stolen on Friday night while the peak for sure was the September Beauty Blog Challenge wrap up party on Sunday. The wrap up party was my first ever blogger event. I was definitely nervous about going and this was quadrupled by my lack of phone, my technology separation anxiety had reached a peak! My nerves were definitely unfounded as i had a great night!
The bash was arranged by Aisling from Total Make-up Addict. The night was in aid of the Irish Cancer Society, such a worthy cause especially for us women in October with it being breast cancer awareness month. The party took place in the Russell Court Hotel or basically Dicey’s to you and me. The drinks were bargainous with bottles of West Coast Cooler just €2 and as I wasn’t in work Monday I took full advantage!
Well the goody bags deserve a paragraph of their own. Everybody got not one but two goody bags packed with some real treats, as you can see. Some lovely brushes, face creams, lip gloss and of course the Boob Tube cream which I’m intrigued about. I also love the packaging on the Human and Kind cream, so pretty.
We were treated to a great make-up and brush demo from Niamh, owner of the fab Nima Brush. I had heard of the brand before but never tried any of the brushes. I was really lucky to win this fab 7 piece Sunshine Collection set in the charity raffle. I’m really excited to try these and will write a full post on it. Niamh also generously gave everybody a Nima Mitt, which is a super duper makeup remover mitt, I’ll definitely be reviewing this.
I had such a great night at the event and it was lovely to meet every body especially the lovely Girl Friday Beauty Blog who organised the whole SBBC in the first place! And a big thank you to Aisling for all the work that went into the night, #irishbbloggers are the best!
