I hope you are all ok and have big smiles for the weekend *yippeeee*.
So as most of you may know yesterday I went to Leeds for my first ever blogging event with none other than the amazing Benefit and my goodness it was simply wonderful. I headed off to Bar Fibre where I was greeted by the lovely ladies Adele, Michelle and Leanne and a room full of gorgeous bloggers. Luckily Gemma and Caroline spotted me as soon as I walked into the event so I ended up sitting with those during the event and having lots of giggles together.

To start us off Adele did a funny icebreaker where we all had to chose one make up item and a celebrity man that we'd want with us if we were stranded on an island. Being the typical One Direction fan I ended up saying Louis Tomlinson (of course, it would be rude not to) and I'd chose to take a waterproof mascara with me.
Once we had a few giggles around the room we were then split into two groups, first off our group went with Michelle and Leanne where we got a presentation about who Benefit are and we all managed to gain a little more information into who Benefit really are and where they and their products originate from.
Michelle and Leanne also spoke to us about Mascarathon. If you aren't aware of Mascarathon I'll give you some information about it: Benefit and Refuge (a charity for women and children against domestic violence, 1 in 4 women are affected) are working together to raise money by doing a charity run from Scotland to London - WOW! In total this will take 2 weeks to complete, as it will be broken down into city sections, along the way celebrities such as Caroline Flack and Jorgie Porter are getting their running shoes on the help this amazing cause. Please donate as much as you can, but £1 per person really will make a difference.
Next we got let into a little secret of a NEW product launch, let me introduce to you all the amazing Box O'Powder Lipglosses - OH MY GOODNESS! These products are simply wonderful, each Powder Box will now have a gorgeous lipgloss to match - perfection. These are available from 28th June and will retail at £13.50 each, my favourite from the collection has got to be Dandelion - a subtle pinky natural gloss with a lush scent.
I had such a lovely time at my first blogging event and hopefully there will be plenty more opportunities for us Northern bloggers to have events up here in the future. I shall be doing posts on the items I got in my goody bag in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for those.
