I have been so unbelievably out of touch with the blogosphere this year but in just four weeks time I'll be finishing university for the summer and will be ready and raring to go with the blog posts again! But until then, I was able to quench my thirst for the blogging world by being fortunate enough to attend the Corky's Schnapps glitter event in collaboration with Selfie Sisters UK and the best company in the world which I am so so lucky to work for; The Gypsy Shrine! When my boss announced we would be attending a blog event this month I was beyond excited! I haven't even attended a blogging event as a blogger before so to be attending my first event alongside such a fantastic company was the best feeling in the world. 

Our role on the night was to ensure all you lovely blogging babes were glittered to the nines and had truly the most sparkly evening. It was so lovely to FINALLY meet and chat to some fellow Manchester bloggers - Shoutout to 'hiitskirstyy' for being super lovely and sharing my love for fashion and journalism! I was also sharing snaps to The Gypsy Shrine Instagram page all night which was super fun, the team also just hit 100k on there recently woohoo! Make sure you're following to check out more behind the scenes sparkly fun! 

Throughout the night we were fortunate enough to be entitled to free cocktails thanks to Corky's Schnapps to help promote their new range of glitter shots. I opted for the raspberry option and then decided to be a little more adventurous and combine both the mango and blueberry options together - it was lush! Each cocktail was also garnished with either a doughnut or sweets to add an extra cute little touch. We each recieved a goody bag at the end of the night featuring a full bottle of mango flavoured glitter schnapps and matching straws to create our own cocktail concoctions. Make sure you are following me on Instagram where I'll be sharing mine! And if glitter makeovers and glitter cocktails weren't enough, Selfie Sisters UK provided a stunning interactive photo booth mirror frame to capture and print memories from the night right on the spot. And to top it off, you were able to digitally sign your message to add that extra personalised touch. Cool right? Me and the girls couldn't get enough of the booth, many attempts were made to achieve that perfect 'blowing glitter kisses' photograph. 

Overall it was a night truly filled with sparkle. From the glitter makeovers courtesy of my dream team to the glitter cocktails and an A* photo booth experience, as my first ever blogging event it is one that I will be sure to treasure and remember for many years to come.

Until next time,

Stay sparkly!
