I was recently invited to a super cool event organised by Next on a really sunny Friday afternoon. I love Next, they have so many great clothes and products. I have not attended any of their events before, so I was super excited to go to this one!
The event was held at Ace Hotel London in Shoreditch. I’d already been to an earlier event in Aldwych, so I got the bus from there because it wasn’t that far. It was on the roof of the hotel on its 7th floor.
The purpose of the event was for bloggers who are part of the Next blogger community to get together. They were going to be getting some tips and tricks from the experts at their photography station, meeting the team behind the NBN and asking any burning questions we may have to their panel of 4 major industry players.
The view from the hotel was beautiful. We had such a lovely sunset too. I couldn’t be luckier. It was such a lovely terrace where you definitely feel to sit down, relax and enjoy the view.
They also had a bar where they were offering drinks such as mojitos and some canapes. I, of course, tried one of their mojitos and it was amazing, so refreshing! It was exactly what I needed!
I was super excited to go to this event because two of the people on the panel were one of the biggest YouTubers out there: Lilly Pebbles and Ana Gardner. They are beauty and lifestyle bloggers who are super successful. I have followed them for years now. They are amazing and inspired me a lot with my own YouTube channel.
Other members of the panel were Niomi Smart who is an expert in all things fashion, food and beauty, she has a reach of over 3 million across her channels so it was very interesting to listen to her too. There was also tech guru Chloe Digital, who is an expert on strategic planning and finally fashion and lifestyle blogger Monica Welburn of The Elgin Avenue, who shared her exclusive tips on the art of taking the perfect photo.
When I arrived, I felt a little bit lost because I didn’t know anybody and I hadn’t arranged with anybody to meet there either. But thankfully, not long after I saw Elena who blogs at Loved By Elena. I was so happy she was there. She is from Spain so it is always nice to speak to someone in Spanish. She is lovely and she was a great company. We then met other bloggers and it was really nice.
I loved the event. The panel was great! I found all the tips and tricks super useful. And the best of all is that I managed to get a photo with Lilly and Ana! That was just the best way to end a wonderful afternoon!
To make it even better, we were given a fabulous goody bag which I love so much! It was packed with lots of lovely things such as a red lipstick, a white candle that has a gorgeous smell, a really handy notepad, a highlighter, some macaroons a light blue small bag and green earrings.
The green earrings inside were my favourite along with the light blue bag. I have worn both already and they were fab, especially the earrings as I have had so many compliments which is lovely!
Do you like shopping at Next? What do you think of my goody bag? What items do you like the best?
*Disclosure: I was invited to attend the Next #NBNevent event. I was not asked to do a blog post but I fancy to do one, so all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thanks for stopping by,
Love you all ❤️
