Plus London Three: Brand Day

Simply Be was the main sponsor and had brought a variety of fabulous accessories and shoes
Simply Be had also brought some really gorgeous clothes - too bad they don't ship to Denmark, boo!
Curvy Kate gave free bra fittings and had brought this stunning girl to model different sets through out the day
It was so awesome to hang out with Sarah from Carmakoma - so proud that they flew her over to join!
Hoxton Arches was buzzing with bloggers and brands
Curvissa had provided the gorgeous Betty and Lilly from The Pamper Box, who did free make-up or hairstyling, here it's Katrin from reizende Rundungen who's having her make-up done!
Charlotte and her amazing handcrafted jewelry from Black Heart Creatives
It was so good meeting Mimmi from Plus Mimmi - she was one of the first bloggers I followed!
And then I finally met the babely Bethany from Arched Eyebrow!

Sidste weekend afholdtes Plus London Three, og som I ved, var jeg fløjet til London for at tage del i løjerne. Jeg vidste ikke rigtig hvad jeg skulle forvente, og programmet for weekenden blev først udgivet et par dage forinden. Det vigtigste for mig var dog at møde en masse af de bloggere som jeg ellers kun læser med hos, eller kender via de sociale medier, og at være en del af fællesskabet. Og så havde jeg håbet på at knytte lidt kontakter hos nogle af de brands der skulle deltage. I sidste ende var der dog ikke så mange brands tilstede som jeg havde håbet på, men de der var, var superengagerede. Hovedsponsoren var Simply Be, men da de desværre ikke sender til Danmark (edit: de sender fra denne side, omend det ikke er helt samme sortiment), tilbragte jeg ikke så meget tid hos dem. De var dog helt vildt søde, og havde nogle cool konkurrencer og endda en illustrator tilstede, som tegnede små skitser af os. I kan se min på min instagramprofil @stickysweetdanish. Personligt var jeg vildt glad for, at Carmakoma havde fløjet Sarah over for at vise deres tøj frem og tale lidt om Carmakomas vision, og det var fedt at se, hvor godt der blevet taget imod dem. Derudover nød jeg rigtig godt af, at Curvy Kate var tilstede, og jeg fik en god og personlig bra fitting, hvor vi fandt frem til min rigtige størrelse i BH. Pigerne fra Curvy Kate har lovet at kontakte mig med en forhandlerliste i Danmark, og så skal jeg nok dele den med jer! Der var desuden en masse uafhængige designere tilstede på dagen, som fx. Black Heart Creatives (som bl.a. laver de fede "Fat Bitch"-halskæder), og Curvissa havde arrangeret at de to make-up artister fra The Pamper Box kom og lagde vores make-up, eller satte vores hår. Desværre havde de helt vildt travlt, så det blev en smule forjaget, men det var sjovt nok at prøve alligevel. Et andet fedt tiltag var, at Blast! var tilstede med deres photobooth så at sige, så vi om dagen fik taget professionelle billeder og om aftenen slog over i det lidt mere... fordrukne, haha! Mere om det i de næste par indlæg. Alt i alt havde jeg en supergod dag, og hyggede mig rigtig meget med alle bloggerne. Der var desværre nogle som ikke kunne komme alligevel, men i sidste ende mødte jeg rigtig mange af dem jeg havde glædet mig til at se (og jeg fik mødt en masse nye, cool mennesker også!). Og så havde jeg en fest om aftenen, hvilket I kommer til at få en smagsprøve på i et kommede indlæg, hvor jeg dog vil forskåne jer for de værste billeder, haha!

Last weekend I attended Plus London Three, which was held at the amazing Hoxton Arches. I didn't quite know what to expect, and the schedule for the weekend wasn't released until a few days prior to the event. The most important thing for me was however just meeting all the bloggers I only interact with online, and being a part of the community. And I'd hoped to network a bit with some of the brands attending. At the end of the day there weren't all too many brands present, but those that were, were highly engaged. The main sponsor was Simply Be, but since they don't ship to Denmark (edit: they do, just from this site, and it's not entirely the same range), I didn't spent too long with them. The team was really sweet though, they had cool competitions and even an illustrator who drew our portraits! You can see mine on my instagram profile @stickysweetdanish. Personally I was really happy to see that Carmakoma had flown over Sarah to show off their designs and talk about their vision, and I was so happy to see how well people responded to the brand. Besides that, I really enjoyed meeting the girls from Curvy Kate who gave me an amazing and personal bra fitting, and helped me find my size. They've promised to get back to me with a list on where to buy their brand in Denmark, and I'll make sure to share that with you! There were also some independent designers present, like Black Heart Creatives (who do the fab "Fat Bitch" necklace among other cool stuff), and Curvissa had arranged for two make-up artists from The Pamper Box to do our hair or make-up. Unfortunately they were quite busy and it seemed a bit rushed, but it was still fun to try it. Another great addition to the fun, was the fact that Blast! was there and took our photos during the day - and night, which turned out slightly different (read: drunken), haha! More on this in the upcoming posts. All in all I had a great day, and I had so much fun with the other bloggers. Unfortunately there were some that couldn't make it after all, but for the most part I got to meet those I'd looked forward to seeing (and I met a lot of new cool people, too!). And then I rocked out during the night at the After Dark event, which you'll see a bit of in a seperate post. I'll spare you the worst pictures though, haha!

  1. Simply Be sender da til Danmark.. Hvis du går ind på deres hjemmeside og trykker på det lille EU flag i højre side kommer du til EU-siden som sender til DK.

    Mit eneste problem med Simply Be er at deres tøj er alt for dyrt i forhold til kvaliteten af deres produkter. Det hele er polyester, akryl og andet plastik..
