#VintSetFest *warning image heavy!*

On Wednesday 24th July, along with various beauty and fashion bloggers alike, I attended VintSetFest, the first beauty blogger and fashion blogger meet up event, and I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last!

The Vintage Set, who organised the whole event sent me an invitation in June and I happily accepted it! I’d never been asked to attend a bloggers meet up before, so I thought it would be a great way to socialise, network and meet other bloggers like myself, as well as snap up a few awesome beauty and fashion bits.

If you took a picture of you wearing your VST bracelet that came with your invitation, you got to grab yourself a goody bag, which I picked up not long after entering the event.

There was a couple of pop up vintage stands there where you could buy clothing, accessories and jewelery pieces from. Some of the prices for pieces were a little high, but they were gorgeous and worth the money, I was just sad that I didn’t have any money to afford some of the pieces I wanted.

I love how gorgeous this look is, the white shirt, black skirt and sunglasses just make this look simple yet perfect. I'd team it with creepers.

This kimono style jacket is really nice, perfect for summer, especially if you're going on holiday or it's a really hot say as it's not a very thick material.

As well as that there was a panel of various people there to answer people’s questions with some great answers! The turn out for the event was amazing!

As well as this there was so much more for people to do and have fun with! Including getting your nails done by Nails by Rosie, she's an amazing artist and has decided to bring it to people's nails. I never got a chance to get my nails done by her, but I'm already decided I'm going to pay her a visit down at The Depot, her work is amazing!

There was a guy there selling Polaroid camera’s too, which were a real win with me and I stood there with him and another blogger discussing camera’s for a good half an hour. If I’d have had more money I would have bought both the Diana by Lomography and the Polaroid 1000 camera too. He sells them often in Urban Village so if you fancy picking one of these up for a great deal, head on down there.

There were two white picnic tables at the event that were covered in various old fashioned sweeties, including these. I loved these as a kid, however due to being on a diet I didn't take advantage of free sweets and left them be on the table. Not many people took these ones to be honest, which is a shame.

Towards the end of the night a band called New Killer Shoes, they were pretty good and although I didn’t stand and watch them, I listened to them play whilst I let a lovely girl from The Depot style my hair. She did an amazing job and I was so happy with the results. I loved her hair, it was a gorgeous grey colour and her style was amazing too. I would love to be able to have grey hair… Oh I almost forgot, I’m going grey at 23!

I loved my hair so much, I want to do it more like this in future, especially in autumn and winter.

I bought myself two bracelets from two of the vintage shops that were there as well as some Catwalk hair spray and a hair brush from Macadamia Oil, but that will be on a separate post in a couple of days time (link here).

Finally to end off this post there was a fun competition of hook a duck during the event. I didn’t get to have a go but when I went outside to wait to go home. I saw the rubber ducks still in the pool outside the room where the event was held and it just set the end to a perfect afternoon/evening.

I had an amazing time at the event and I haven’t even finished talking about it yet! The event was so amazing that I have to make two posts about it!

I hope you’re excited about the second one, as I know I’m excited to write about it! Plus I apologise that the pictures from the event weren’t taken on my digital SLR, I didn’t fancy taking this along with me, so I took my nifty little digital camera instead. I think it did just as good a job as my SLR could have.

If you have stumbled across this post and recognise me from talking to you at the event, please leave a comment with your blog address so I can go and check out your blog!

Until next time though, take care all and I hope your week has started off well.
