Remember when I said I had a really exciting week coming up? This was why! About a week ago, a very unexpected (but exciting!) email popped into my inbox from Branded Lab inviting me to their #fightcancerwithfashion event in Manchester. Hosting a great variety of brands including NaaNaa, Trend Two and Ruby Prom, and all clothes between £1-£5 with the proceeds going to Breast Cancer Research, it was something that I was so excited to get behind.
So many people now are affected by cancer, whether directly or indirectly, that its a charity that I think spoke to probably every blogger invited, and I was more than willing to hand over my money for such a good cause! There was also a fabulous makeup artist on hand to give brilliant advice, and demonstrate the perfect statement lip or smokey eye – something I don’t think any girl can turn down!
I wasn’t sure what to expect with it being my first ever blogger event, but Branded Lab put on such a fun evening that any nerves I had soon went out of the window! It was great seeing so many amazing bloggers out to support such a good cause too, and the clothes were absolutely gorgeous, I couldn’t believe how many amazing pieces I managed to pick up (video coming soon!!) and getting to network with some of my favourite bloggers was so much fun.
Winning one of the raffle prizes was a definite highlight, as were the gorgeous free cakes and juice samples, so I want to say a massive thank you to Branded Lab for inviting me and putting on such a wonderful event!
And now for the photos!
