Every year Scarlett London hosts multiple blog events; Bloggers Festival, Bloggers Ball, GoGlamGala, BlogConLDN, and the newly added Bloggers Suite. I’ve attending a number of these events since 2014 and it’s been amazing to watch Scarlett grow and succeed more and more as a blogger and an events planner. The Bloggers Ball was hosted at Trading House on Gresham House, an elegant bar although I was slightly scared of all the stuffed animals dotted around the room.I attended with friends and fellow bloggers Charli and Abi, and as the dress code was Glam I went all and curled my hair, done a smoky eye and wore a jumpsuit and heels.
We arrived to flowing cocktails served by the very attractive bar men. I’m not even going to lie, I was perving like no ones business. At one point the girls were talking to me and I was so busy eye flirting with one I missed the whole conversation.
The event was sponsored by SmoothSkin, the creators of the fastest at home IPL device, Lipivir, the lip gel product that can reduce the frequency of cold sores, and SanDisk, the global leaders in Flash Storage Solutions. I had met Lipivir at a previous event Scarlett had held but this time round they had brought Glitter Lips with them, and as I’m not called Glam Glitz Gloss for nothing we made that our first stop.
I had not met either of the other sponsors but I was really excited to be introduced to both of them. SmoothSkin showed us their Bare Summer Collection and talked us through the differences between IPL and Laser. Im so excited to say that after the event I was contacted by them and asked to review their IPL device. I am yet to try it as I got sun burnt recently and the peeling was so bad that I’ve had to wait, but it’s finally clearing up and I’ll be getting that review up once I’ve given it a good go. I will say now though they have such a beautiful range of devices.
Next stop was Sandisk to learn about their new iXpand Drive. This little device plugs into your phone and gives you more memory by freeing up your phone. It automatically backs up your photos, allows you to watch videos on the move and comes in 5 different storage sizes.
One of the brands I enjoyed meeting the most was STM Goods, a company who will be celebrating their 20th birthday next year. They sell laptop bags, packs, fitted cases and other accessories to protect your tech, make carrying it easier, all whilst looking great with bold, bright and unique designs. Jessica who was there on behalf of them for the day was absolutely lovely and so informative about the brand. I was in love with their Grace Deluxe Laptop Sleeve in Dark Purple, keep an eye out on the blog and Instagram for a picture and review of that.
There were so many great brands at the festival and if you search the hashtag #BloggersBalls on Twitter you’ll see other reviews but these were my highlights from the day. Thank you to all the brands for taking time out of your busy schedules to meet us bloggers, to talk me through your company and showing me your products.
