I never thought I would make a post like this. Simply because I never thought I’d be so lucky as to go to a BLOGGER EVENT! Oh my goodness, I’m still shook! Today I thought it would be nice for me to share with you my experience at the event that I went to last weekend. I don’t even know where to start, like honestly so much happened. So the event that I went to was very open; there were bloggers, Youtubers & Instagrammers. The event was all based around natural/kinky/curly hair and teenagers in general. The age ranged from around 12-19 but there were also some girlies in their 20’s who were like little guides for us teens. This event was called ‘The Teen Experience’ and the company Treasure Tress was the main focus.
After I bought the tickets for the event I cannot even explain how excited I was, I was counting down the days for ages! The event was hosted in Shoreditch, in the private basement part of the Bird restaurant. It was so beautifully decorated and felt so welcoming. There were these cute lil cards on the table that had slogans on them and we even had cards with our names on them. We all sat down and ordered our lunches and had a bit of time to get to know everyone before the event officially began.
Ohhh not to mention these delicious cupcakes that we got given too. They were soooo good I can’t even begin to explain!
*^^Tucking into the food, which was incredible by the way! ^^*
The card that you saw previously saying “beauty standards” was one of the topics we talked about at the event. It was so motivational to hear such amazing things being said from powerful women and such insightful views from teens too. The conversations were so thought-provoking and really made me think more about things and not just social media expectations, but also just the expectations that are put on us as individuals in general. We also had a really nice chat about relationships (I don’t mean like gf/bf) but we spoke about friendship, female friendships as a whole and the stigmas that come with it. It was honestly so eye-opening and I felt so comfortable there and I think everyone else was too as we all spoke and contributed with such ease.
One of my favourite parts about the event was the fact that your age didn’t matter. Sometimes, as a teen, your opinions can be rejected simply because you’re a teenager but this was not the case at The Teen Experience and everyone’s thoughts were welcomed and heard.
They were so so kind and gave us all a lovely goodie bag towards the end of the event. There were so fab little bits inside so if you’d like to see what was in them, then keep on scrollin’!
I’m literally itching to try out all of these things! The hair bands look like they’d work really well in my hair and I can’t wait to try out the curl enhancing mousse ( in the white bottle ), it’ll work wonders for my hair. I was also so excited to get a tangle teaser which was especially for thick and curly hair, like ahhhhh! My hair is going to be pampered so much using all these fabulous things, I just want to say a massive thank you to Treasure Tress and all the other amazing sponsors for being so kind and generous as to equip me with all of these goodies. <3
Of course, no day would complete without some pictures! There was a massive ring light and a photographer there and it was so much fun snapping some pics and boomerangs with all the lovely girls! I’m still in shock that I was at an actual event and couldn’t be more grateful for how welcoming and fun the whole experience was. Thank you to everyone at The Teen Experience and all the fab hosts, you really made my first blogging event experience one to remember.
It was beyond incredible and I wish I could re-live the experience all over again! I loved every second of it and enjoyed being in the presence of so many incredible hair gurus, beauty gurus and teen bloggers. I hope to you enjoyed reading this post all about my experience and make sure you pop back to my blog on Wednesday as my 100 Bloglovin’ followers giveaway will be going live!
