When I saw that Lily Pebbles and Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup were doing a meet-up in Grosvenor Square I was beyond excited. They make some of my favourite videos and write my favourite blogs. I’d never been to a beauty event before, so was debating whether to take the plunge and be brave. This Summer I’ve been really pushing myself to do more things and have surprisingly coped outside of my comfort zone. Even though I’d be going alone, it was something I really wanted to do, so I didn’t let that hold me back.
It was definitely the right decision as I had such a good time and finally met some of my blogging idols. When I arrived I nervously glanced around at the other event go-ers and me and the girl next to me exchanged smiles. Her name was Evelyn and she made me feel comfortable when I was really nervous. Next, a girl called Olivia arrived, who was also lovely. We sat on Olivia’s picnic mat and chatted for about an hour, which was so fun and not awkward at all. It’s amazing that we all came to the picnic alone but were instantly bonded by one unifying interest.

We decided to get in a queue to have a chat/photo opp with Anna & Lily and once again I was really anxious. I was a bit nervous when the time came, and didn’t say much, but I’m so glad that I did it!
Overall, it was a really amazing day! I’d really encourage all of you to push yourself out of your comfort zone as it makes you achieve more.
This pic is so surreal for me haha! Just having a casual giggle with Lily, Anna & the girls 🙂
