Heya, last week I was lucky enough to be invited to the WeHeartMondays event up in London at their HQ amongst many other bloggers, Youtubers and influencers. I went up to the HQ with Morgan who you guys probably already know and we spent the evening surrounded by amazing food, brands, people and Christmassy music. I took a bunch of photos so that you guys could get a real sense of what it was like up there. Unfortunately I couldn’t photography every stall or talk about every single brand in too much depth otherwise this would be super long but grab yourself a cuppa hot choc and a snack be prepared to scrolllll!
The HQ was beautifully decorated, like one of those Instagramable places all pretty, Christmassy, light, airy and cozy. I mean you can see from the pics how nice it was. The lil slogan prints on the brick walls were so cute as well and there was even a fireplace and a Christmas Movie on too!
This was one of the first stalls that I went to, there were loads of brands and companies with their lil tables too. This was the stall for the company ‘Cupcakes and Shhht’ and I literally told the lady how much I loved their brand name coz it’s literally one of the coolest things that I’ve heard! Anywho, here they were making fresh hot chocolates with whipped cream. We got to choose to top them with any confectionery treat we wanted so I went for a brownie and a mini cookie, but they had doughnuts and cupcakes too!
This was really interesting to see, like I had no idea that there was even such thing as Cactus Water but there is! You can even pick it up in Tesco! It has a really nice subtle sweetness to it, like nothing that I’ve ever tried before. Definitely something that I would say to try!
What I loved so much about this event was that there was so much food as well as beauty and skincare. This was a soup company called Pep & Lekker and can be bought in Ocado.
Now let me tell you, if you can get your hands on any of the shortbread or cookies from the Vegan Treaterie then you are in luck! I was lucky enough to try the Lemon & Poppysead shortbread and the Pistachio cookie and it was INCREDIBLE, they were some of the nicest cookies and biscuits that I’ve had. 100% recommend!
For all my Gluten Free fellows, this is the brand for you! They make gluten free pastries and they are stunning. They aren’t dry at all, they are really tasty. Fun Fact: the rose that you see above was made from their gluten free pastry due to the recipe allowing the pastry to be so flexible.
I found this brand really intriguing, it resembles a popular ice cream called a magnum but these are diary free! You could also choose from a variety of toppings and sauces to have on top of your Miiro ice cream.
We were also lucky enough to receive a goody bag filled with samples from the day, including Emma Hardie, Evolve beauty and many more from the brands above.
I literally had such an amaing time and had the chance to speak with so many bloggers and meet new people. I feel so honored to even be considered as a blogger to be invited to an event as lovely as this and I want to say a massive thank you to the wonderful ladies at the WeHeartMondays HQ and all the amazing people who were there.
