Last week we headed to Clerkenwell for a party in a penthouse hosted by Spectrum Collections and The Bloggers Hub. We were promised an afternoon of glitter doughnuts, canapés and cocktail punches, and thats exactly what we got! Lily was first up to get her glitter on at The Mermaid Cave who offer festival inspired adornments and makeovers using biodegradable glitter. I opted for some gold jewels under my eyes. The Mermaid Cave ladies also braided guests hair adding a little glitter for an extra bit of sparkle. If you’re off to any festivals this year definitely give their Instagram a follow for some beauty inspiration!
Whilst I have seen Spectrum Collection makeup brushes all over Instagram I had yet to own any so it was great to see the brushes IRL (they are as soft as they look). All of Spectrum’s brushes are PETA registered and they’re a vegan registered, cruelty free brand! We loved meeting the beautiful founders Sophie and Hannah, dressed in all their merbabe glory, the ladies are inspirational and it’s great to see how far their business has come!
Of course no blogger event would be complete without the odd tipple and the gin cocktails went down a treat! Lily’s not much of a drinker but even she couldn’t believe how good they tasted! We will definitely be investing in an iridescent bottle of Unicorn Tears Gin Liqueur created by Firebox – perfect for Summer parties and BBQ’s!
We’ve always found the people we meet at blogging events to be so supportive and inspirational and this event was no different. Everyone was so friendly and the atmosphere was really chilled. If you’re looking for some other blogs to follow you should definitely check these lovely ladies out:
Before we left we were given a goodie bag filled with some incredible items including a couple of makeup brushes from their Marbelous collection which have already been put to good use, Some false eyelashes from Eyelure, some Leighton Denny Miracle Mist speed dry nail spray and loads of snacks which we devoured on the journey home.
Thank you so much to Shanice from The Bloggers Hub and to the Spectrum sisters for having us. It was our favourite event to date. We definitely think that glitter should be a must at every blogging event from now on!
