South East Bloggers Circle Meet Up - The Raffle and Goody Bags!

Before Christmas I wrote this post about the blogger event I organised. For anyone that doesn’t know, I run a group called the South East Bloggers Circle, which is made up of bloggers (of all genres) from the South East of England. Our main hub is our Facebook group where we chat about all things blogging, post links to our posts/videos and generally just support each other. We also sometimes organise little meet-ups, but last November I held the first ‘official’ meet up for the group. It took place at Pizza Express in Festival Place, Basingstoke, and was attended by nine bloggers (after a few had to drop out unfortunately). We had a fantastic time, which you can read all about in my previous post, but I promised you I would talk to you about the raffle and the goody bags!

I’ll start with the raffle, which went down really well with the other girls. We had a number of prizes donated to us by some really lovely companies and all the money raised was for the charity Mind, who support people all over the UK with mental health problems.

The following prizes were donated for our raffle and we made an amazing £50 for Mind:

·      Bill’s - A hamper of edible goodies
·      Illamasqua - Mystery selection box
·      Pacific World Cosmetics – Sensationail starter kit and 2 LAB2 brush sets
·      Paul’s Boutique - £100 credit to spend on their website
·      Jilly Jilly - £20 Gift voucher
·      Bee Good - Box of goodies

Our goody bag tote bags were kindly donated by Life Tonics and came with this awesome slogan on them, perfect for the event!

I also had a bag of Lush goodies that I bought separately

Inside each goody bag were the following items (some items were slightly different in each bag, but all from the same brands):

·      Life Tonics - 2 bottles of Hydration Plus Coconut Water in different flavours
·      Bee Good - Cream Cleanser sample
·      Lush - A couple of Christmas bath bombs
·      Witch Skincare - Overnight Clearing Serum and Gentle Exfoliating Face Wash
·      Bill’s - Jam (variety of flavours)
·      Champney’s Guildford - Each blogger received a full-sized product from their range
·      Dream Dots - Discount voucher
·      Cheerz - Voucher to create one of their products

I just want to take this opportunity to thank all the companies that helped us make the event such a success, and for all the bloggers who came along and joined in!

If you’re a blogger in the South East of England and fancy joining us, you can find our group on Facebook, Twitter (@SEBlogCircle) and Instagram (@SE_Bloggers) – it would be great to see you! If you’d like to be added to our database to hear about future events, please drop me an e-mail on

Have you been to any good blogger meet-ups? Are you in the South East and fancy joining us? What sort of meet-ups would you like to see?
