I know that it’s Saturday and I don’t normally post on Saturdays, but the thing is Beautiful Bloggers Meetup (#bbmulj on Instagram if you want to check it out) under the motto Be yourself. Be an unicorn got me too excited to keep things to myself. And I bet you’re curious about what was happening, amirite?
Anyway, I need a few more days to really get my mind in working order so I can summarize everything that happened and my thoughts on the whole conference (which will be post #2, I suppose) and I still need to go through all the goodies that I got (obviously, post #3), so in the mean time, here are some photos to keep you entertained.
|My breakfast – a fab cake pop!|
|Le Couvent des Minimes body sprays were available in the hall and in the toilets – for warmth, happiness or energy after the lunch, depending on whatever each girl needed on that particular day.|
|I am absolutely in love with the wonderful lights from Smile Concept Store. These and the roses by Box Of love really made the atmosphere in Hotel Lev magical – perfect for unicorns!|
|I love when people pay attention to the little details – my morning coffee came with a cute bow!|
|This is just a glimpse at everything that could be seen at the Avon stand – there were so many product my head was spinning!|
|sOliver stand showcasing their new perfumes (for him and for her) was absolutely gorgeous with all the flowers, bows and pastel colors|
|A good smoothie kept my stomach from being louder then the speakers 🙂|
|DM stand with Trend it up products was the only stand being presented by a man. Well done, DM!|
|Melvita stand was out of this world simply because it took me to another place and time – in all that crowd, I got complete attention and felt like I was the only person in the world while they were talking to me. I <3 it!|
That’s it for now, I’m afraid. But remember – there is more to come 🙂
Until next time, stay beautiful!
I already wrote a post about everything exciting that happened at the first Beautiful Bloggers Meetup in Ljubljana a week ago, but I didn’t want to go into all the presents that the wonderful sponsors and partners prepared for every blogger at the event.
Most of us had problems carrying everything home, since all the bags together weight close to 20 kg. And let me tell you – the next morning when I was opening the bags, it really was like Christmas. Thank you to every one of the companies – I am super excited to try everything out and to include my reviews in my #blogvember project, which is just around the corner.
Without further ado, here is everything I got in the bags (minus notebooks, pencils and similar), hopefully in alphabetical order of the companies. The reviews won’t come in the same order, though, since some products require more testing than others. But if you’re really anxious to hear about anything as soon as possible, let me know in the comments below.
Afrodita was the general sponsor of the conference. Bag included: Extra sensitive intimate wash – delicate care, Argan Oil – total repair (6 in 1), Sugar scrub for body (brown sugar and shea butter) and samples of Pearl Prestige skincare line.
Alessandro bag included: a nail file, Mini nail polish from the new winter line, Take Off nail polish remover gel, a lovely USB stick with PR materials and a Veggie nail cream.
Aussie provided us with full size Repair Miracle shampoo and conditioner. Everything was nicely packaged in a bag, but unfortunately, mine ripped somewhere in the schlepping process.
Avon bag provided us with: Advance Techniques Supreme oils, their new Eyeshadow Primer and Rollerball Attraction Eau de parfum.
BIOTHERM // LANCOME
Both Biotherm and Lacome products were included in the same bag. From Biotherm we received Fresh Foam Hydra Toning Cleanser, Instant hydration toning lotion, Aquasource gel and a little somethin’ for our boys who waited patiently at home: Biotherm Homme Force Supreme Young Reshaping Cream.
Lancome portion of the bag consisted of: Beauty Sleep Perfector, a deluxe sample of La Vie Est Belle eau de parfum and Hypnose Volume-a-Porter mascara.
Catrice had such a pretty bag (as did Essence) and it included: Chocolate Nudes Palette, Utimate nail lacquer (It’s a very berry bash) and Glossy lip Glow.
CLICK 2 CHIC
Online store Click 2 Chic didn’t give us a bag, but rather a great box (which will come handy in the future). It included: Subrina Vitamines & Strength Shampoo and Balsam and yummy Darkest Blood Orange body butter.
Curaprox was an unexpected partner, but I was excited to see their booth. They gave us their Superduo (Mind the Gap) which consists of a toothbrush and a nifty tool for interdental cleaning.
I’ve only ever used their bath salts before and now I’ve got a whole bunch of products: Funky Coconut Creamy hand gel, Energy Tonic – Face & Body mist and a Lip Balm (strawberry).
Essence had a pink theme going on, since their bag included: All about roses Eyeshadow Palette, The Gel nail polish and Liquid lipstick (Show off!).
Eucerin bag was another surprise, and inside I found the Anti-age Hyaluron Filler CC Cream (Medium).
Another brand I’ve never heard of before, GD, gave us: Shower gel in pomegranate apple, Deodorant roll-on in pomegranate apple and a Deodorant pump spray in pomegranate apple.
Golden rose bag included their bestselling Ultra Volume X4 Mascara and Color expert Nail Lacquer (36). They also gave us a voucher which we can use for a lipstick of our choice in their stores.
I’ve heard of this brand but never tried their products yet. The bag provided us with: Moisturizing cream for sensitive skin and a whole bunch of mini and deluxe samples which will be great to really introduce me to their products.
LE COUVENT DES MINIMES
Again, a new brand for me, and I would give them the reward for the loveliest booth at the event. They gave us a full size Botanical Cologne Eau Aimable and the Smile Lip Balm (Orange blossom aroma).
Licila.si never fail to impress with their surprises. In my bag, I found: Uma Cosmetics Long Lasting Lipstick (Natalia in Portland), I Heart Makeup Black Velvet Palette Montagne Jeunesse Blemish mud and the Strawberry Souffle from the same brand, two packs of Twigs breast lifters and again from Twigs, Anti-rub gel skin protectant.
Yes, the first Slovenian Beauty Bloggers Conference (#bbmulj) happened this Friday. I am still trying to process it all (and find my way through all the gifts), but nevertheless, here are my top 10 moments from the event!
1. The venue
Grand Hotel Union has the perfect location in the city center close to the bus and train station. The staff was very helpful and friendly and no little detail was left to chance.

2. The participants
I met all of my fellow bloggers for the first time and without exception, they were all very pleasant and friendly. I look forward to sharing more wonderful moments with them in the future. A special shout-out, however, goes to Nika from Beautyfull Blog who made the event happen, so go follow her and tell her I sent you 🙂
