The Bloggers Love Hub Event In London.

Bloggers Love Hub Blogging Event in London

My week started brilliantly as I was invited to attend the Bloggers Love Hub in London. My first ever blogger event! 

Every Monday in November, Bloggers Love will hold a blogging event where you can network with other bloggers and meet interesting fashion and beauty brands. The event took place at the Mahiki bar and nightclub in Dover Street (yes, the Victoria Beckham store is just down the road!).

Bloggers Love regularly organise blogging events and this one was my first ever event to attend. At each event, there will be a different mix of fashion and beauty brands. Some events will include a fashion show or a gifting lounge and several brands will be there which will give you the chance to speak directly to the founders or brand representatives and learn about their unusual products.

The event on Monday started at 4 pm and there was a great atmosphere when I arrived. The Mahiki nightclub was decorated nicely in a tropical theme, bloggers were welcomed with goody bags, delicious cupcakes were waiting for you and people just had a good time chatting, laughing and meeting the brands.

One of the main reasons why I particularly wanted to attend the first meeting in November was the great selection of jewellery brands that came to the gifting lounge and showcased their products. I always like to discover unusual jewellery that you can't get on the High Street but is sold at affordable prices. During my two hour stay at the event, two jewellery brands really stood out to me and I think they have a lot of potential to be established on the fashion market namely Glowbeads and D_Jewelsus.

I was lucky to speak to both brands and learnt about their interesting products. Katherine the founder of Glowbeads, showcased her incredible bracelets, which reveal a dramatic glowing effect when light hits the beads. The material used is reflective and the same as in road cats eyes. So wherever you are, the colourful accessories will turn heads and catch eyes. Kathrine's collection includes bracelets and necklaces for different occasions and there's a kids collection, too.

The Glowbeads bracelets come around £12 and I was kindly gifted one at the event. I decided on a multi-coloured bracelet, which looks so much fun and I will show it to you very soon.

The second brand I'd like to tell you about is D_Jewelsus. The London-based brand is quite new on the market and they have specialised in jewellery made out of fabrics. The collection features individual and unique pieces inspired by geometric forms which give the items an 80's touch. Most necklaces were made from leather. 

So you have a statement necklace but without the heavyweight. All fabrics used are natural and made from real leather. I was very intrigued by one of their statement pieces, a collar, which was made from a soft cowhide. The combination which met cold metal squares and then went over in a furry sort of pony hair material felt incredible.

Sorry, I've only got one picture of the collection as the lighting at the venue wasn't the best for shooting pictures. Keep your eyes open for one of my upcoming ootd posts and you might spot an item from the range.

I also chatted to the lovely Emily, who gave photography advice to bloggers and revealed some tricks on how to boost your blog pictures. I spoke to Byron, managing director of The Blogger Programme, a network which is currently booming. 

I had a great time at the event and would like to thank Bloggers Love again for organising and hosting such a fantastic opportunity for us beauty and fashion bloggers. The venue was nice with lovely staff, but the lighting wasn't ideal for photography and I wished there would have been more seats available to sit down with blogging friends and have a relaxed chat or at least a cloakroom to drop of coats and bags. But these are minor issues and I'll be visiting the last event on 24th November for which I am very excited for.

There's still time to sign up with Bloggers Love to attend one of the last remaining three events. All you need to do is to register (it's free) and attend the free event in London. You can also bring a plus one, you know, the more the merrier :)

I also went to their final event on the 24th November, which I have covered in my Bloggers Love Hub Blogger Event Part 2 post.

Thanks so much for reading,

Till next time,
