Sheffield BBloggers - Take Two

So you may have seen that I had an absolutely amazing day last Saturday at the fab Sheffield BBloggers event

Well, part of the day consisted of a raffle to raise money for a brilliant charity Look Good, Feel Better - and we collectively raised around £250.

Well done us!

But - the prizes on offer were pritty immense, so naturally everyone wanted to win...well...everything really

I had my eyes on the Vivienne Westwood rings from Silvertree Jewellery from the day they were announced on Twitter, but four (yes four!) other lovely ladies walked away with these.

But I wasn't sulking - oh no way - I walked away with two very brilliant prizes myself.

The first was a make up collection from The Balm Cosmetics, and - well - just look at it

~ Ooooh that packaging though ~

I just love it and there will be a full review of all of it on my blog in the not too distant future.

My second prize was a lovely, bright pink Cocoa Brown Luxury Gift Set which I am really looking forward to having a proper delve into too.

There were so many other prizes on the day too.

Everyone was just so generous.

And speaking of generous - the goody bags we all walked away with were blooming amazing.

The Blogger Programme had supplied some great, personalised tote bags, and Georgina, Heather and Ashleigh proceeded to cram them to the brim with treats and surprises for everyone

Obviously I want to show it all off as much as naturally I've had to take a fair few photos...

And what better way to begin showing off the goodies than with some fantastic-ness from Makeup Revolution.

I just love this brand - they are totally taking the blogger world by storm at the minute and I must admit, I use one of their basic palettes every single day.

This jewel coloured Nightmares Palette is obviously now very securely added to my collection, along with a fab eyeshadow primer and a very lovely deep purple lipstick too.

Isn't it pretty.

I guarantee all of these products will too be on my blog soon - in a post all of their very own.

But it wasn't all about fantatsic makeup, I think every single possible beauty base was covered within our bag of tricks.

There was everything!

~ Passion For Natural provided some organic Aloe Vera products - in my case a lovely looking lotion
~ T-Zone sent some facial scrubs, which are just perfect for my current skin dilemmas
~ Jurlique popped a cute little bag of facial treating goodness in for us
~ The lovely Crabtree & Evelyn provided an avacado bath and shower gel
~ The Somerset Toiletry Company gave me a lovely citrusy, very luxurious looking handcream
~ Charmos sent some quite sexy stockings for us all too (see top photograph)

~ I have actually reviewed this antibacterial Quinoderm face-wash before (see here) and I thought it was really quiet good, so this was a welcome find
~ Balance gave us the ultimate in facial moisturising with an 8-in-1 face cream
~ Epic Blends, Deborah Milano and Lypsyl provided lip-loving goodies
~ Essie, The Body Shop and Beauty UK made sure our nails didn't feel left out by offering up an array of fab coloured polishes

~ Crownbrush and Nanshy sent some fab makeup brushes...which is great as I always need more
~ The White Rose branch of Urban Decay casued quite a stir amongst everyone when a full size primer was pulled out of various bags at once - very impressive
~ Mondss included some "underarm wear" - which look intriguing...and different...
~ The teeny little Go Splash water flavourer is perfect for travelling light and hydrating on the go
~ Papier Poudre's lovely packaged papers will be brilliant on those hot, make-up-escaping-days
~ Bare Minerals sent everyone a fab black eyeliner - perfect
~ Clinomyn provided a tube of their stain remover toothpaste - and this stuff really works - trust me (see here)

~ Macadamia sent a cleansing conditioner...a hair product...yep...I love this already!
~ Cloud 9 Skin Solutions provided an array of different coloured boxes - my pink one contains a scar minimising cream which I can't wait to test out
~ Lyons Leaf included a lil' tin of their beauty balm
~ Dermocare WWF patterend plasters became an instant talking point - mine are "Ocean Life"
~ Benefit (Oh I love a little bit of Benefit!) provided a sample of their Lola tint
~ Dermashack popped in a sample of their Derma Dew

~ Vanilla Shimmer provided a very cute little silver midi ring - which I love
~ Tiny Wishes included a lovely four leafed clover charm bracelet - it's so sweet

And so are these fab Punky Pins popcorn earrings

Oh - and Transforming Lives included a £100 Non-Surgical gift voucher...oh hello white, bright teeth...

Now all I need is a bigger house to have space to store this lovely lot.

How spoilt am I.

Thanks again ladies for inviting me
