#Thecitygirls Event and My Favourite Goodie Bag Items

Recently I've attended one of the most anticipated blogger events - #TheCityGirls in Leeds.

Since I've started blogging about 8 months ago I have had the privilege to attend some truly great blogger events, but #TheCityGirls has definitely been one of my very favourites!

It was set at The Liquorist, a cocktail bar which up to the event, I had never been to before. I really feel like I've been missing out, it's absolutely gorgeous and it will definitely be on my list of bars to go to on a night out from now on.

The cocktails looked really wonderful too! Although I was staying on soft drinks only due to having a few too many the night before.

The event was a fantastic opportunity for networking with bloggers and brands alike. 
The bloggers who organise this event Lorna and Holly-Lucy are clearly very passionate about blogging and they definitely know what they're doing because the event was a tremendous success!

There were a lot of brands there including Together Health, Body Shop and Benefit and the gorgeously packaged Voss Water

The Goodie Bag & Product Reviews

 The goodie bag from the event was absolutely marvelous, I couldn't believe how much stuff was in it! My hand was actually aching a little from carrying it all - but hey I'm definitely not complaining!

I've had a little while to test out majority of the products and I thought I would share my favourites with you.

First up is plewsy, I've never heard of this illustrator, but I have fallen in love with her illustrations. I think some of her  animal illustration cards would look lovely framed.

I am absolutely in LOVE with this MOOGOO  Full Cream moisturiser
It leaves my face smelling like creamy fudge and my skin baby soft. 
I have sensitive combination skin, which means that finding a moisturiser that works can be a little tricky. 
I was worried that this moisturiser would leave my skin feeling greasy, but that's definitely not the case, if anything it seems to help with the oiliness in my T-zone.
This is the perfect moisturiser for sensitive, troubled skin. It's made with Sweet Almond Oil, Raw Coconut Oil and Honey. The best thing is that all of the ingredients are completely natural.

The 75g size as pictured in the image below costs £9 which is a lot less than I initially imagined it would cost. I will definitely be purchasing some more once mine runs out and will be trying some other MOOGOO products.

Another product which I adored from my goodie bag is this Balmi Lipbalm.
I love the packaging and the shape of the lipbalm makes it so easy to apply. 
The one I received is Raspberry scented and it smells gorgeous. I've been using it every day because it keeps my lips moisturised and soft. I've never noticed it in a shop before, but according to their website Boots stock them at £4.99.

Together Health Vitamins have probably the nicest vitamin packaging I've ever come across! I usually take vitamin supplements, but have recently run out so it's the perfect timing to give Together Health Vitamins a try.
In my goodie bag I received the Multi Vitamin and Mineral supplement and I also picked up their B Complex vitamins to try.
Taking vitamin supplements can provide you with more energy, better skin, hair and nails and overall improved feeling of well being.

I've been a fan of Urban Fruit for a while so was delighted to receive some mango in my goodie bag. Their dried fruit makes the perfect tasty snack on the go.

I've got long hair that has a tendency to tangle so when I spotted the Tangle Angel in my goodie bag I was absolutely delighted. 
I've heard that there are special anti-tangle hair brushes that you can buy, but I've never owned one until now. 
Let me tell you this, it really does make a difference! This hairbrush detangles my hair without any pain and it leaves it silky smooth. I love it! I would definitely recommend that you invest in one, your head will thank you for it.


Another two products which are absolutely brilliant are the DermaV10 Coconut Body butter and the Hand and Nail Cream. 
I've been using the coconut butter every day and it leaves my skin moisturized and soft for over 24 hours! The hand and nail cream feels absolutely gorgeous on my hands, it leaves them feeling silky smooth and really deeply moisturised
All of DermaV10 products are made with made with high quality natural ingredients and none of their products are tested on animals. What's even better that most of their products are available for a £1! Yes, you did read that correctly! You can buy their products in shops such as Poundland and B&M bargains. 
Often we tend to associate price with quality, but I can tell you this is definitely not the case for DermaV10, their body butter is of better quality than some of the expensive butter that I have tried. I highly recommend it.

This Dusty Girls lip gloss is gorgeous. It's very summery with a light shimmer which I think will look great in the sunshine. It's not sticky and leaves my lips feeling moisturised for hours. All of the make up that Dusty Girls sell is made with natural ingredients that are kind to your skin, I would love to try their mineral foundation (perhaps on payday).

I really wish that all the girls knew about this Manuka Doctor Lip Enhancer when the Kylie Jenner lip challenge was doing its rounds! 
It's brilliant, when you put it on you can feel a slight tingling sensation and then about 5 minutes later you've plumper intensely moisturized lips! 
The mail ingredient which causes the plumpness is bee venom and manuka honey encourages collagen formation to keep your lips plumper in the long run.

I've also been lucky enough to receive this beautiful candle holder from Oates & Co. I absolutely love it's minimalist style. The one I received in my goody bag was unfortunately shattered but they were very kind to send me another one in the post.
I love candles, so this makes a great addition to my collection!
They sell some beautiful homeware go check them out.

I've really enjoyed trying all these products from these great brands, thank you #TheCityGirls!

Until next time,
