1st iFabbo UK Event

Last night I, along with many other bloggers, attended the first iFabbo UK event.

It was my first event so was fairly nervous going up to London on my own for it. But I'm so glad I went as I really enjoyed it and met lots of lovely people. 

It was held at The Powder Room in Soho. It was such a beautiful and chic location, and we were all spoiled with cocktails from Rocktails and cupcakes from The Cake in a Cup. We were given an introduction for what iFabbo was about ( International Organisation for Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle Bloggers), and then we were given talks by various brands as they introduced themselves and told us all about their products.
We heard from The Powder Room and their favourite brand Paul and Joe Beaute, Boudoir Prive, Murad and The Make Up Store.  

I met so many lovely bloggers at this event, 3 of which are pictured below.
I also met Louise from Makeup Lover, Jess from Star Violet Beauty, and briefly with Zoe from The London Lipgloss. There were other blogger who I met but sadly I have an awful memory when it come to names :(
There were also many other bloggers, some of whom I recognised, who I'd had love to have met but never got the chance to.

Below I'm pictured with the lovely Aletha from Confessions of a Beauty Queen, Becca from BeautyBecca, and Epiphannie from Epiphanniea. Had such a great night with these girls, and you should definitely check out their blogs!

This tasted as amazing as it looked!
Boudoir Prive Talk

If you are on twitter you may have heard of the upcoming French brand Boudoir Prive. They were there last night and gave us a talk on their up coming launch - though they were very good at giving nothing away!

The lovely Zoe from Murad
Zoe from Murad was at the event to talk about their products, and it was clear she knew her brand! I'd heard of Murad before, but never given them much thought. But since hearing about them I've been really looking forwards to trying their products as they have such an extensive range tailored to everyone's needs!

The Make Up Store Talk
We also heard from Swedish brand 'The Make Up Store', which I'm very excited about! I hadn't heard of them before the event, but definitely recommend checking them out - their up-coming Autumn and Winter collections look amazing!

The Goody Bags

Each of us who went were treated to a goody bag with an amazing range of products from Beautisol, Colbert MD, Collection 2000, Eylure, Elegant Touch, The Make Up Store, Murad, Paul and Joe Beaute, Rocktails, and Witch Skincare.
My Goody Bag!
This is the only sneak peak I'll post of my goody bag for now! 
I have completely raided the bag and cant wait to properly try everything out!
If you're interested in what's inside stay tuned for my next post ;)

I had an amazing time, and would definitely recommend iFabbo to other bloggers! You can sign up on their website here.



  1. was the butterfly ediable on the cup cake? cant wait to see what you got in your goody bag :)

  2. Looks like it was a fab event, unfortunately I couldn't make it as I was working until midnight. Your first event is always a bit scary as you don't know what to expect, but most beauty bloggers are lovely so the nerves soon go away. I hope to meet you at an event in the very near future.

  3. Haha sadly no it wasn't, but even if it was it was way too pretty to eat!
    I'm hoping to post about the goody bag soon. There's soo much stuff to cover, but it will be up as soon as I can :) x

  4. Aww it's a shame you couldn't make it, would have been lovely to meet you!
    Yeah I was so nervous, but I had a lovely time and ended up being one of the last ones there lol. Everyone I met was so friendly.
    Hopefully will see you at a future event :)
