FABB Event Leeds | lifestyle


Hello Beautifuls,


This weekend I went to the first official event hosted by, FABB Events. This fab, no pun intended,  company is headed up by the beautiful Ray of OhWhoIsShe, and Tor of That'sPeachy. Although this is the first official event of FABB, it is the second one I have been to hosted by these lovelies, and they never disappoint.

Ray and Tor's Welcome

Here's how it went...

After a rather hairy ride down between my driving and temperamental weather, I arrived with my lovely Sally of RainyDayFaces , sort of on time.

Honestly, walking into a room full of beautiful ladies, a lot of who you know from their blogs, is a little scary, even when everyone is lovely.

Ray and Tor made us welcome as ever and after a mingle and hello to people I had met before, as well as ladies I hadn't, it was time for the first presentation of the event.

Jo

First to talk was Jo from Cloud Nine Hair, Cloud9. She gave us a brief chat about the company and offered the first exciting giveaway of the day. The product kindly up for grabs, was The Waving Wand. An amazing barrel curling iron, that creates equal sized curls from root to tip. Also it includes a really helpful kick stand, something missing on my wand, my poor carpet agrees. The lucky winner was one of the attendees Holly of, GoodGollyMissHollie.

Bruce

Next up was Bruce from, Health Point ltd. He gave a great talk about the importance of accessible beauty products. Explaining that as nice as high end, luxury products are, they are exactly that, a luxury. So Health Point is working to develop great products as low as £1.00. All the items in the picture below are currently in stores for £1.00, and I will be sure to let you know how I found them very soon.

Now it was time for some motivation. Honestly, this was probably my favourite part of the whole event. The gorgeous Amy and Emma from, Best British Bloggers gave an amazingly informative, helpful and encouraging talk about all things blogging. If you are a newbie like myself, or even excited about making blogging a career, Sam of WhenFlowersFall made a vlog of the whole presentation on her YouTube Channel, so click here to watch.







These ladies were so knowledgable and excited about blogging, bloggers and everything involved, I found it just really inspiring to know the industry is growing all the time. So MASSIVE thank you to Amy & Emma, especially for the Q&A section xo.

The closing demo of the day was from Ark Clothing.

Jo and Carlie from Hearts&Bows


They gave us a sneak peek into upcoming lines and what to expect in the coming seasons. It was really good to get a look and feel of the clothes too, as sometimes buying online can be a bit of a risk. I can however confirm they're great. They were also generous enough to let us try some great items too.

If you've made it this far down thank you so much for reading. The event was great and I can't recommend FABB,  Ray and Tor enough. Not only is it great to hear from brands you may previously of not used or heard of, you get to be surrounded by ladies and gents that you have so much in common with, and have endless things to talk about. I had a great day and I am so grateful for the hard work of everyone involved. Loved meeting and chatting to some great ladies.


The nature of these amazing events, is that you get introduced to lots of new companies and products to try. So over the next few weeks there will be loads of new exciting posts coming up.
