#TheCityGirls Launch Event - Pizza, Cocktails and Bloggers!

On Saturday I had the pleasure of attending a special launch event with 30 bloggers for company, 2 for 1 on cocktails and pizza's a plenty - it's fair to say the #thecitygirls launch party was a roaring success. If you follow me on Twitter you'll have seen plenty of tweets ahead of the event, excited was an understatement. This was my second blog event, but I still felt a little nervous, the smell of pizza and the sight of friendly faces on arrival soon settled any nerves. 

The City Girls launch party was held in Bloo88 - a bar situated in Sheffield city centre. Bloo88 are well known for their amazing pizza, all the pizza's are cooked fresh in a clay oven - so yummy! The private function room was beautifully decorated, vintage tea cups were scattered around the room filled with retro sweets and goodies. The event was well co-ordinated it was clear to see how much effort Lorna and Holly-Lucy put into the event - the small details really were noticed ladies. 

Lorna and Holly-Lucy plan to run similar events in various cities across the UK, be sure to keep an eye on the @TheCityGirlsUk Twitter page for an event near you. 

The chosen charity for the City girls event was City Hearts. Amber, who volunteers for City Hearts told us a little bit about the charity and all the work that they do. Some of the stories were horrific and surprisingly close to home. City Hearts aim to help vulnerable women who want to turn their lives around. Women who have gone through drugs/alcohol abuse, eating disorders or self harm. City Hearts also work closely with the Home Office, UKHTC to help the victims of human trafficking. The work that City Hearts charity does is invaluable, so I was thrilled to hear that the City Girls raffle raised a total of £175 for City Hearts … even better, Aviva are matching our money raised to £350 which is incredible! 

Benefit, Lush Sheffield, Panache Lingerie, Cinnamon Buns Designs & Second Thread all had stalls within the room you could easily walk round to each stand and have a good natter with the brand sales assistants. Benefit were on hand to show us all the new Roller Lash mascara and eyebrow mapping.

At the Lush stand you could have a go at making your own fresh face mask, but given how rubbish I am at DIY I decided to talk to the lady about shampoo bars, SPF and the new Lush app (how cool is that app if you haven't downloaded it already... do!) 

The day flew by and unfortunately I didn't get the chance to talk to Panache or Second Thread. I hear the bra measuring service was very good though, it was surprising just how many people were wearing the wrong size! Get measured ladies. 

I had a lovely time at this event, great music, great food and great company! It was good to see lots of Sheffield brands on board too. I would like to send a huge thank you to Lorna and Holly-Lucy for organising such a fab event, I can't wait to hopefully see more events popping up in different cities. I feel very proud to have attended the launch party for The City Girls I'm excited for what the future holds, and I wish you every success.

Have you attended any blog events? Are you a fan of Bloo88? What are your favourite Lush products?

P.S Stay tuned for my goodie bag details, I'll posting this over the next few days. We were well and truly spoilt!
