#ShropshireBloggerMeet + what's in my Goodie bag!

At the weekend I attended the fabulous and my first #ShropshireBloggerMeet up. I was incredibly nervous to meet all the other bloggers, but thankfully I already knew Sarah & the amazing organiser Kirsty so that made it slightly easier. The meet up was held the the gorgous Two Henry's at the Battlefield estate in Shrewsbury which is such a lovely friendly place to go, I will Definetely be going back with my family and kids who will love the perfect play area. 

We were supplied with the most amazing popcorn in Propercorn, which I adore. Being a really fussy eater, finding something new I like is an extremely hard task. The Gorgous yellow packet in sweet & salty is by far my favourite followed closely by the blue packet salty, which I have tried since the meet up. This Propercorn is Definetely #DoneProperly and I think it's amazing that it's Gluten & Wheat free as their are so many people out there who struggle to find that in food snacks knowadays. I think it's so cute that the boxes of these Propercorn comes like a suitcase, how ace would it be to have a whole box! 

There was a table dedicated to the amazing raffle prizes and the glory that is Stella & Dot! This was the first time of seeing the products from Stella & Dot in person as the fabulous Sarah is an independent stylist for the brand. There is some amazing pieces, including bracelets seen on Katie Perry and Jennifer Aniston. I fell for so many lovely items like the bracelets, clutch bags and necklaces which Sarah used on me to demonstrate to the rest of the bloggers.

The goodie bags were unbelievable, I was so excited! I loved so many of my items I received. During the afternoon we got to see the amazing items that Prairie Charms sent for each blogger, there was the most gloriously beautiful glitter heart clips which I knew instantly my daughter would love, and beautiful knot hair ties in the most Gorgous patterns and colours. Look out for future blogposts on Prairie Charms as they are a lovely friendly company and I have already made an extremely exciting order, which if you follow my Instagram or Twitter you will have seen the sneak peek already. 

I thought the package that Halo Wipes sent was amazing, so so useful. I had been searching for something new to try and take my eye makeup off with and their eye makeup remover pads are working a treat, they are perfect for anyone with sensitive eyes and aren't too oily to disturb my vision like others I have tried in the past. Each pack size is perfect for carrying around in your hand bag to freshen up or wipe any surface clean while out and about or at home. Really impressed with Halo wipes, will Definetely repurchase in the future. 

Was super excited to have a set of Fullips in the goody bag, being a huge fan of the Kylie Jenner look I'm dying to try these out. I will get some pictures of before and after with these beauty tools soon as I'm planning a little pamper session with my sister to test them out. If anyone has any tips feel free to leave them in the comments section under this blogpost.

Another beauty tool which looks to be my perfect replacement for the original Beauty Blender is the Nanshy marvel 4in1 makeup blending sponge. Having had my first beauty blender go mouldy after a couple uses I have been extremely unsure if to try another, the Nanshy version looks so much more versatile. With all the different shapes, edges, corners that this one tool offers you don't need to look anywhere else, especially at the price of £5.95. Nanshy is a brand that creates cruelty free makeup brushes and tools, I think their makeup brushes look amazing and I would love to try them out one day. The blending sponge is latex free, non-allergenic and odour free. It can be used with liquid or powder based makeup products, prefect for creating an airbrushed finish. The shape of this blender makes it so easy to get into little awkward areas on the surface of anyone's face, whether it be around the nose or perfect for under the eye area. It's so easy to hold and as advised by using the sponge damp stops any waste of makeup as it doesn't soak into the sponge. 

The No Bump Bobbles are amazing, super cute to look at but they work wonders in my hair and most importantly in my daughters hair. My daughter Amber has never had fast growning hair, she is now six years old and its only just past her shoulders with couple trims. The main problem with her hair is it's so fine and sparse, so using the right hair bobbles is vital to stop anymore damage or breakage. These no bump bobble are perfect for her, they put minimal stress on the hair and are easy to pull out. Their Instagram account is amazing. I was searching though and they do the most stunning patterns with frozen, disney princess and my little pony which is her favourite at the moment. Love these so much.

I'm a sucker for anything Lush, the smell gets me everytime. I'm a massive Lush Fan and get a lot of use out of their bath bombs mostly, they have really helped the condition of my skin. Some areas especially like my back as I used to suffer with breakouts on my back before I used lush bath bombs, but that is no longer an issue for me. I had never tried soaps but always thought they look amazing, I received Honey I washed the kids and it's like heaven in a bar, smells divine and is super moisturising.

We received the amazing Tangle Angel in baby form and normal brush, which are fab stylish hair brushes. I have had one of these brushes before which I loved as it can be used directly next to my hair dryer being as they are heat resistant, even tho they are heat resistant after a long while of doing this with my first brush the bristles did bend in different directions but it was still totally useable just didn't look as smart as it does when it first arrives. I love the idea behind these brushes as they are super hygienic, they have antibacterial addictive embedded in the plastic stopping all them germs building up on your brush. It has anti static properties which definelty helps with my frizzy flyaway hairs, helping them to stay more silky smooth. You can hold the Tangle Angel at the handle for normal use of if you want more control it can be held on the Gorgous winged part, they also stand really pretty on your dressing table. Tangle Angels can be used in wet or dry hair which is perfect for me, they are great for detangling and perfect for children's hair as they are so gentle when brushing. They can also be used  on hair extensions for those lucky enough to have super long locks attached to their head. :)
I love the Baby Angel as it can be easily transported around in your handbag or attached to keyrings, so easy to access any time your out and about.

Loving that we received the Lilash Demi eyelash serum in our goody bags, I already followed them on Twitter and have seen amazing images of before and after with their products. I personally would love to try the LiBrow as I have very sparse eyebrows in places and have to really fill them in while doing my makeup. The Lilash helps to thicken eyelashes within weeks, I'm so excited to see my before and after pictures, follow me if you don't already to see the end results. The applicator is so small and makes it really easy to apply to the area needed along the lash line once a day or every other day if you have sensitive eyes. The product itself has a lovely weighted luxury feel to it.

I'm so intrigued to try out the MooGoo range, which helps all types of skin problems for adults and children. Before I opened the bag I could smell the fresh natural ingredients included to these products, the fresh milk cleansing bar smells divine and the tub of blemish cleaning mosituriser will come in handy to try out. MooGoo are happy to say they are an alternative to chemicals for troubled skin, for the most common skin concerns they have all types of products to suit. They even have products for anti ageing, gradual tan, face oils and haircare. Not to mention how amazing the edible strawberry tinted lip balm sounds.

I'm totally obsessed with face masks and so excited by all the exciting ones Timeless Truth has to offer. I loved reading through all the information that came with my Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask, which is part of the Fusion series of masks she offers. The Luxury masks are made from state of the art fibres, which each feature sumptuous ingredients for the best results from your treatment. Their are so many different masks to choose from and when I was looking through the luxury bio cellulose masks in Apple Stem Cell Collagen Mask and Bee venom & Royal Jelly miracle masks were the ones that really grabbed my attention and made me want to try them out. Check them out at:

The Rio Art nail set I received has made me excited to get my crafty side out, I love creating beautiful arty looks but have always found it difficult. This set include a how to DVD and everything you would need to create unique designs on your fingers and toes, perfect for spring/summer.  I will definitely be sharing any creations I do with this set on my Instagram and Twitter accounts very soon, after I have  had some practice! I think the tools, gems, nail paints, glitter and more from in this pack makes it a perfect set for any nail lover.

We also received some Korres wild rose brightening creams, sebamed skincare products, Paul Mitchell curl cream and Neal & Wolf heat protection spray which smells amazing reminding me of being in a salon while using it. 

I loved so many items and will be sharing more when I have had chance to get more use out of all of them. Which was your favourite items?

I also managed to get the lovely Library of Fragrance cologne sprays set of three in the raffle, keep posted for a blogpost on those coming real soon. :)
