FABB events Glasgow...

Early mornings are usually my worst nightmare...unless I have got somewhere exciting to be. A month or so ago, I rolled out of bed at 5.30am and set off down to Glasgow for FABB Glasgow. FABB events are events for bloggers run by a couple of amazing bloggers - Tor and Ray. So far, they have had events in Leeds,Manchester, Newcastle and now Glasgow.

Once I was down in Glasgow, I met up with one of my friends for a short while and I had the most amazing pancake,ice-cream and maple syrup in The Willow Tearooms. Afterwards, I hot-footed it across to Merchant City Square where I met up with Laura, Kirsty and Laura (who had also travelled from Aberdeen) as well as Rachel.

This event was held upstairs in Fanelli's in Merchant City Square. Having resided with my parents for the best part of 17 years in a town around 20 minutes away, I had never ventured into this area of Glasgow until now.With plenty of food/drink choices and stunning interior, Merchant City Square is definitely worthy of a visit.

At this event, there was not only the opportunity to meet other Scottish bloggers but also to talk to brands that you may not have experienced before.In fact, I think there was only one brand I had previously heard of at the event and that was Lush which generally I love anyway. I didn't purchase anything from them at the time,although I must say the Buchanan Street girls certainly convinced me to give some of the limited edition Christmas goodies a go at some point especially the Santa lip scrub.

One of the brands which did strike a particular chord with me was Beauty Kitchen. As someone who is a fan of natural based products (skincare particularly), I was pretty taken with them as their products are 100% natural. They also source products from local sources as much as possible as well as using pre-cycled and recycled packaging.A great idea if you ask me.

Despite the extremely early start and almost missing my bus on the way home (I literally had a minute to spare thanks to Glasgow traffic!), I had a brilliant time at the event and it was definitely worth travelling down for.

Thank you to both Tor & Ray for organising FABB Glasgow!
