Green Beauty Meet Up

October 27, 2014

On Sunday 26th of October, 10 Green Beauty Bloggers took over The Oracle in Reading! We met in Starbucks then headed to the shops. 

After a bit of retail therapy, lots of hugs and a bit of gossiping we headed over to Pizza Express to have lunch... and for me, Jen and Sarah to reveal our secret surprise!

Watch my vlog (click here) to see the look on the ladies face's as they saw that they each had a goody bag on the table... and another one on their chair! After rooting through everything excitedly we ordered our lunches (with only a little drama) and I revealed the other big surprise of the day... a giant hamper of goodies from Bodhi and Birch!

After filling our faces with yummy pizzas and salads we went back for yet more shopping! 

I really, really loved my day with these gorgeous girlies, it was such a special and amazing day - thank you to them for making it so.

The Goody Bag

Now... I know you all want to know what was in my goody bag! The answer is... lots!

Aside from my strange face, I just wanted to say thank for inviting me on such a lovely day.
