I’ve always heard good things about Scarlett London blogger events and I’ve been wanting to go to one for a while but I’m usually not organised enough to get tickets in time. Luckily this time I managed to get my ticket as I definitely wasn’t disappointed. The Bloggers Festival was held in the Conrad London St James, an opulent and luxurious venue which is literally across the road from St James park underground station. This was music to my ears as I often get lost finding venues and have been known to arrive at events in a flustered state! I would love to visit the hotel again for afternoon tea so I plan to look into this.
There were a selection of brands to talk to, some of which I’d heard of before such as Jewellery Box, Natural World, 7th Heaven, Beverly Hills Formula and Heaven Skincare and others which I was interested to learn about. I also briefly chatted to Scarlett when I arrived who was lovely and friendly. I was lucky enough to have a photoshoot with jewellery Box alongside a fellow blogger who I met at the event which was a new experience for me but was fun and they generously let us keep the pieces we modelled.
One of the first brands I spoke to were Friction Free Shaving (cheekily shortened to FFS) who provide a razor and blade subscription box service. It’s a great idea as it means you can change your blade weekly for a smooth, bump free shave and it cuts out the hassle of going out and buying blades which is ideal for those with busy lifestyles. I’ve already used my razor once and will be posting a review in the next few weeks.
The way to my heart often involves food so I was drawn to the Opies stall and had to sample some cherry cake. They provide products such as pickles, walnuts, olives and compotes as well as recipe ideas for those who enjoy cooking or baking and their jars of fruit or ginger would make great presents.
If you suffer from IBS or bloating Alflorex claim to improve symptoms so I’m interested to try it. It contains a unique culture which reaches the gut alive to provide targeted action.
I’ve heard of Beverly Hills Formula before and I’m sure my mum used to use it in the 90s! I’m intrigued by the idea of a black toothpaste that removes stains so I’ve started using it and can already see a slight improvement. It contains charcoal to help remove tannins and freshen breath. I also tried the Gold Perfect White toothpaste and I love how it made my teeth look and feel. I’m also a sucker for anything with a bit of sparkle!
I’m already a fan of the Natural World hair oils, especially the Brazilian Keratin version as it really does smooth my hair after washing so I plan to try the shampoo to see if it has a similar effect.
David Hampton specialise in luxury leather goods such as wallets, messenger bags, passport holders and briefcases. There are classic and on trend colour options to choose from and the smaller items would make great gifts
I was interested to find out about Exuviance as the professional range of products use innovative formulations to improve the condition of your skin. I would love to try the face polish as I often have white keratin spots on my face so I’m hoping this would help remove them.
Other brands I spoke to were 7th Heaven who are my favourite budget face mask brand, PNY who offer much needed power packs to charge your phone, Go Send which allows you to save money on shipping charges when buying products from the US, Social Superstore which is a shopping website where you can earn money and Varta who also provide power packs.
I loved the Kim K style wall of flowers which made a great backdrop for outfit photos. My outfit was a bit of a rushed job but i wore a Primark skirt with a top from Topshop and Linzi shoes. I definitely plan to attend any future Scarlett London events
