4 Reasons Why the 4th London's Bloggers' Market Was On Point! | #TheBloggersMarket
The Bloggers Market took place a while ago, to be correct on Saturday 1st April, but I believe it's still an experience worth sharing. This was the 4th Blogger's Market and the first one I attended. This year it went under the inviting title - Pastel Paradise, which covered the venue in pastels whereever possible. The event was held at Camden Collective venue in central London. The organizers were 4 bloggers (a lot of number fours!): WishWishWish, What Olivia Did, I Want You To Know and ShinyThoughts, all with the stands with amazing selection. Now let's hop to the list of reasons why The Blogger's Market was so on point!
First and most obvious reason - all the beautiful pre-loved bargains you could find including clothing, shoes, accessories and make up . Besides the organizers already mentioned, you could find some second-hand goodies from these ladies as well: Zoe London, Five Five Fabulous and Love Cloth. The clothes would vary in sizes 6 to 14, so it was a decent variety of choice for many sizes and body shapes. It was a good choice of brands, from high street brands to designers. There was a lot of bargains for as little as £2 with most being under £15. Obviously, the designer items would have a higher price tag but still extremely affordable considering their original price. I am happy to say I became a proud owner of a beautiful sequin dress that I found on Olivia's stand and very soon I am hoping to share it with you in my future post! Did I say it was only a fiver?!
What an idea! You get thirsty. You think 'Mm, I could really use some refreshing-but-with-a-kick juice now'. You don't have to worry for long, because just there, right in the corner of the room, you see wide inviting smiles standing behind a stand with some colorful bottled liquid that would make your thirstiness disappear with pleasure within seconds. You head there, ready to spend the last penny to end you minor misery and that's when a pleasant surprise hits you! No, you better save that penny for some more clothes, because their policy is to 'Tweet to eat' or 'Snap to sip' as they call it! You just take a pic with your phone, post it on the social media of your choice (Twitter or Instagram) with appropriate hashtags and you get that amazing drink for absolutely free! Great awareness of the power of social media, especially in the bloggers world! Big thumps up for that! Oh yeah, that amazing drink I was talking about is Nix&Kix, and my absolute favorite among them was Peach & Vanilla flavour one. Besides them, there was other goodies like addictive gummies by SugarSin, yummy AND pretty buscuits by Honeywell Bakes, or if you prefer a smoothie for your thirstiness PACK'D was an alternative solution for you!
What is the better way to socialize with other fellow bloggers and fashion lovers than the good old shared workshop activity? You were able to sign up for pastel marbling workshop with Pup Tart London, Ghenet Actually hosted a bullet journal workshop for Ohh Deer, there was The Lovely Drawer pop up shop that would turn your chosen words into this beautiful Instagram famous style art with the technique of brush lettering and after all that you surely deserve a nice pedi done by Boudoir Beauty Parlour which again you were able to get for free if you share it on you social media!
4. Girl power
Most important reason this event rocked is that it was all done by ladies. Fashion blogging is one of the rare industries that is dominated by females, and these ladies really did prove that ambition and common interest can achieve a lot. They provided all the other women with similar interests a casual place to hang out, a beautiful venue and interesting activities. It was one of those perfect worlds where you see women enjoying themselves and some of them even accompanied by supporting boyfriends, whether while shopping or helping out at the stand. They also set a great example to the younger girls that attended. A big well done to these ladies and I cannot wait for the next year!
