as most of your might know Saturday was finally the day of the #LLAMmeetup. I had been organising it for months, and by Saturday morning I was feeling very very nervous. I arrived half an hour early to set up and get ready for everyone too arrive. As I was carting in the first lot of goodie bags I spotted some of the girls already sitting in the lobby, they were so sweet and offered to help me collect the rest of the bags.
I then quickly set up finding a place to display the raffle prizes, putting out my hastag twitter bubbles, and laying out the goodie bags! I then welcomed everyone as they came in, in a bit of flutter (I'm sorry I didn't get more time to chat to everyone). Soon it was time for the demo's... The very lovely Niamh from Nima Brush and Nicola from Benefit gave amazing demonstrations using their own products and creating two beautiful looks.
After the tutorials and a quick chat from Kat about the #irishbbloggers it was time for the raffle, we raised a whopping €242 for Breast Cancer Ireland. Everyone was so generous, I'm still in shock at the amount raised! I'm also still giggling at Kathleen's little dance when she won the Vanity Rooms Voucher.
