Monday usually known as the worst day of the week for some people, it was quite the opposite for me. I was excited to participate in the festivities at my first blogger’s event, converse with the brands and bloggers alike. The event took place at Provisions Studios in London, hosted by The Bloggers Hangout. It was an interesting journey trying to find the venue, as it truly is a hidden gem. Overall, it was a great experience; everyone was so friendly and welcoming, and I can’t wait to attend more events in the future. It was also refreshing to hear about brands that are less known, family owned or small businesses, The Bloggers Hangout selected a great range of brands suitable for all types of bloggers.
As soon as I walked into Provision Studios, the event was in full swing, packed to the brim. I wondered over to the refreshments, where Cocktail Mania was serving their colourful creations. The colours essentially caught my eye, but the taste exceeded my expectations, they even had jello shots, what’s not to love. Cranes premium cranberry cider was smooth, refreshing, and shockingly only 99 calories per bottle. With three flavours, there’s a crane to satisfy every individual; from the sweet tooth to the original version, and something in between for those who want to enjoy the best of both worlds.

If you enjoy food just as much as I do, you definitely need to know about some great guilt-free products, as they come with numerous health benefits, due to all natural ingredients, no GMOs in sight. When you get a craving for something sweet, we usually reach for the junk food, and then feel bad about it later. Thanks for Frank’s have an all-natural, gluten-free, granola flapjack. Unlike other flapjacks, that can be high in sugar, and too sweet to enjoy, Frank has created a filling delicious treat. With the use of jumbo oats, crunchy seeds, and jam-packed with masses of fruit, the flapjack is soft, flavorful, and great for on the go.
Get Buzzing, who had numerous of flavours to choose from, also created all natural fitness bars. This all started with one woman, a kitchen, and some experimentation with healthy alternatives. If you enjoy peanut butter you’ll enjoy their wowbutter bar, even those with nut allergies are able to eat this tasty treat. Enjoy it for breakfast, as an energy-boosting snack, or even on the commute to work, or college. Speaking of peanut butter, New Zealand based company Pic’s Really Good, has created a smooth tasting range of products, from cashew butter to peanut oil, to crunchy peanut butter – that I now want more of, as their sole ingredient is peanuts.
There were many brands present, a few shout-outs to Pop Cycle (creating delicious hand-made ice lollies), Popkakery (delightful cake pops, and brownies), CoYo (enchanting coconut based yoghurts), CocoNuts (blissful natural ice-cream), Pudology (mouthwatering desserts and yoghurts). As for the tea lovers, there was Miracle Tree (refreshing moringa tea), and Bluebird Tea Co, (uplifting flavourful matcha tea). Finally, for the beauty enthusiasts there was Naturigin (a natural hair colouring company that more need to know about), and Supernatural Beauty (organic and pleasing to all skin types), and a selection of other brands.
