I recently got the opportunity to attend an exciting event at Intu Lakeside.
Their ‘Everyone’s Invited’ event consisted of a whole weekend of fun and entertainment.
Some of the Essex Bloggers and I got to go along and experience some VIP treatment. When we arrived we were shown to our exclusive festival themed ‘bloggers hub’ complete with mocktail bar and sweetie cart as well as demonstrations from the lovely ladies from Lush Lakeside and The Body Shop.
We were then whisked off to meet Reggie ‘N Bollie (XFactor Runners Up) who were performing on the Everyone’s Invited stage later that afternoon. After a quick hello and a cheeky photo we wished them luck with their performance and headed back downstairs for a Peachy Blinder mocktail!
We had the opportunity to watch Reggie N’ Bollies performance which was brilliant and we all enjoyed singing (and dancing!) along to the songs.
We had a bit of time afterwards to chat to the other bloggers and make some Lush products before some of the eateries in Lakeside brought down some delights for us to tuck into!
Stampede, Wagamama, Pizza Hut and Menchies Frozen Yogurt all provided us with some amazing treats. The duck pancakes from Wagamama were pretty special and I’ve already since been to Menchies for some more of that glorious froyo!
We then all headed down to Waterstones where we were about to meet Rylan Clark who was doing a signing of his new book ‘The Life of Rylan’.
Rylan was lovely and came across exactly like he does on TV, very chatty and friendly. I’m looking forward to reading the book when I go away in August.
Throughout the day there were more acts taking the stage and entertaining the crowds which was brilliant to see. We left very happy with full bellies and a lovely bloggers gift bag full of delights from Yankee Candle, Urban Decay, Estee Lauder, The Body Shop, Lush and lots more.
A huge thank you to Voice Communications and Intu Lakeside for putting on such a wonderful event.
