Bloggers Hangout | LFW Event 2016

A couple of weeks ago, I went down to the Provision Studios in Hoxton to attend a Bloggers Hangout event for London Fashion Week.

The event was literally buzzing; I met a lot of other bloggers and I discovered a lot of new brands that I hadn't come across before. There were mixture of beauty, food and healthy lifestyle brands showcased at the event and I thought I would share them with you. Here are a few.

ARK Skincare

ARK is a British skincare brand which uses natural active ingredients to treat skin by age and skin concern. The brand is very age aware, as they believe that different age ranges have different requirements for their skincare, on account of their internal and external structure (as well as hormone levels). Currently, ARK has product ranges specific to different age groups, varying from teens and 20s, 30's and 40s and 50s and above, and they have a vast variety of skincare products from moisturisers to cleansers and toners to exfoliating products and face masks. I'm particularly excited to try out their Skin Protector Primer with SPF30 and their ARK Pro Remove Pre Cleanse!

Supernatural Beauty

Another skincare brand which caught my attention was Supernatural Beauty. It was SO lovely to the co-founders of the brand, Jenny and Tyron, and I was super impressed by the products they had to offer. Skincare is so difficult to get right and I think that Supernatural Beauty has hit the nail on the head. I tried out the Righteous Body Butter and the Salvation Face Oil on the back of my hand and I can't even explain to you how good my skin looked and felt! The products are made using completely natural and organic ingredients and so many people have had such amazing results from using the Supernatural Beauty products - I can't wait to properly give them a go myself!


Moving on to haircare, I was really intrigued when I saw the Naturigin stall at the event as I had heard so many people raving about their completely natural hair colouring products throughout the day! When I went over to have a look myself, I discovered that they actually offer 19 different hair colours, which are 100% permanent. These hair colours are 100% Laurel Sulfate, Ammonia and Paraben free and contain a lot of natural essential oils to nourish and add shine to the hair. A lot of hair dyes can be so damaging, so it's really reassuring to know there is a brand out there which gives you great colour pay off and doesn't damage your hair in the process. 

Crobar Crobar caught me completely off guard...I had to look twice. They are protein rich energy bars made with cricket flour (like..actual crickets)! At first, I didn't know what to think of it, because I would never have thought of eating crickets (even though I've heard a lot of people talking about how crickets are one of the new superfoods) but after a little bit of convincing, I tried a tiny piece of the Peanut and Cricket Flour bar. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised at how 'normal' it tasted. 
Turns out, crickets are actually supposed to be amazing for you - they are a sustainable source of protein, high in protein and Vitamin B12 and low in fat. It's a little bit out of the ordinary, but the health and environment benefits speak for themselves!

Naturally Coconuts

Another healthy brand I came across was Naturally Coconuts, who specialise in natural, organic and vegan Coconut Based Ice Cream - this is such a good idea! A lot of people love ice cream, but with everyone being a lot more health conscious right now, it's a really good alternative and the ice creams come in a variety of flavours too; Sumptuous Strawberry, Raw Chocolate, Mint Choc Chip and Coconut Caramel. 

Bluebird Tea Company

I also came across the Bluebird Tea Company, which loads of people always rave about! I do love a good cup of herbal tea and Bluebird have a lot of varieties (they refer to themselves as being tea mixologists, who create unique blends of tea) and they offer both, loose leaf and packaged tea.
I went away with samples of their Mojitea (cos I love a good mojito!), Strawberry Lemonade tea (which can I just say is delicious) and Dozy Girl tea, because I really struggle to switch off at night and I can't wait to brew up a cuppa!

Other brands

There were a lot of other interesting brands at the event including protein drinks brand uFit, herbal tea brand Miracle Tree and Thanks for Franks, who offers lots of yummy granola bar in various flavours. Popkakery and Pudology had some tasty samples for me to try and overall, the event was jam packed full of amazing brands and amazing products.
It was so lovely to meet so many people and learn about so many new brands; thank you to The Bloggers Hangout for organising such a a great event!
