How exciting blogbees’!

I got invited along to a bloggers exclusive event :D! I met a bunch of amazing Scottish bloggers! I got invited along by Scott Harry Emery – a male fashion and lifestyle blogger from Glasgow, who is shortlisted for Company Magazine’s Style blogger award 2014! All the best Scott! Represent the power for Scotland!

yay free products! Yum!

I was welcomed in by Lisa, the store manager who has been with Crabtree & Evelyn for 10 fantastic years! All 13 bloggers were welcomed with a soft drink, a cute cupcake and even a goodie bag! I heart free products!20140530-015849-7129041.jpg 20140530-015758-7078523.jpg

As I started looking around the store I was kindly approached by Jamie Rockers– Social Media and PR manager for Crabtree & Evelyn. As I did not know anyone and was nervous, I was glad Jamie came over and even complimented my style and my online exclusive Michael Kors clutch (Birthday present from my sister!! Lucky Sultana!).

Jamie had mentioned she has done a few Bloggers events around the UK. And said bloggers events are more busier than customer events! Great work Jamie!

I was given this luxurious hand treatment by Fatima a sales assistant at the store. I was using the products from the Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed ranger which is one of the best sellers! I asked about the other products and Fatima told me about there Eau de Pearfum fragrances. These special fragrances were Harrods exclusive fragrances and were even in the top 6 best sellers!

All the bloggers were very approachable and we exchanged blog details! Yay new Instagrammar’s 🙂 I was surprised to find out not everyone has a business cards, which I advised would be a handy card to have at events like this. Alexandra had a discussion on Twitter asking other bloggers thoughts.

Overall I met some great people! And my hands feel so soft and girly (compared to my usual gym hands). I hope to see more bloggers exclusive events! As suggested previously bloggers events have much more a lasting affect than customer events. The trend hashtag for the evening was #crabtreehandytips which has been used on my Instagram uploads and tweets 🙂
