#LetsGlow Blogger Event

A few weeks ago, an email popped into my inbox inviting me along to a secret blogger event by the gorgeous gals at Sense PR. Finally an event I could attend! Living nowhere near London generally means that blogging events are few and far between so when I found out that this one was in Leeds just an hours drive away (and also one of my favourite places ever) how could I refuse?!

A week or so before the event, we received our official invitation and learned a little more about what we would be doing...glow in the dark bingo. My previous experiences with bingo involved my mum and a fusty bingo hall full to the brim with little old ladies, but I put all reservations aside and was looking forward to it! 
I arrived at the venue (the very cool and quirky Belgrave Music Hall in Leeds City Centre), and was greeted by one of the lovely Sense PR girls who rocked some seriously cool UV face paint! The whole first floor was UV crazy, with glow in the dark confetti all over the floor, home-made glow in the dark lamps and of course a glow in the dark bingo set! 
Of course, I was mega nervous as I didn't know anyone but the lovely India and Jess soon introduced me to some of the Leeds bloggers and with gin sling in hand I felt a whole lot better!



Before the festivities started, there was chance for us all to mingle and introduce ourselves, get our face painted, get our nails kitted out with special UV nail polish and indulge in some free drinks - they'd thought of everything!
There was also time to eye up the table of prizes and drool over the gorgeous Olivia Burton watch and Pandora bracelet up for grabs.

We had 3 games of bingo (on glow in the dark bingo sheets of course!), with little breaks in between to top up our drinks and help ourselves to the mouth-watering spread of pizza and cupcakes. Literally living the dream. 
And would you believe it, I won a bloody prize! I was the lucky caller of a full house and I don't think I've ever reacted to anything so fast in my life! As well as a lovely little goody bag complete with chocolate and lipstick - THEY KNEW ME WELL - I also got to walk away with my fab prize, the Pandora bracelet!
Throughout the night there was also an Instagram competition where the best photographer would walk away with Fujifilm Instax Mini camera and although I wasn't lucky enough to win that, Ellie Kate who did win was more than deserving!


All in all, it was an amazing night and I couldn't believe how good it all looked and how well we were treated! It was lovely to get to meet some of the Leeds bloggers and hopefully I'll be able to catch up with them soon! 
You can read the official write-up of the event over on the Ladbrokes page, and a massive thankyou to them and Sense PR for inviting me!


Always, Alice x


P.S There is still time to enter my Lush. Benefit and MAC giveaway here!
