Feel Good Sunderland Event || Blogger
On Saturday 27th April I attended the Feel Good Sunderland in Sunderland City Centre and there was three different parts to it. Want to especially thank Katy (girlinthenorth.com) for taking time out of her busy schedule for showing us all round the three different areas even though she was helping organise the whole Feel Good event! It was also a chance to meet some fellow bloggers in the North East including Shannon (dimpletodimple.blogspot.co.uk), Libby (gingerbreadbuttons.com), Beca (thosemomentsofserendipity.com), Aileen (jellybeancloud.com), Katie (beautyandthebaker.blogspot.co.uk), and Amy (midasflorence.blogspot.co.uk). The first part was in the Bridges Shopping Centre with the focus on Health and Fitness. We watched Armageddon Fit Training Academy (www.armageddonfit.co.uk) running their boot camp to show people the kind of exercises they did. There was also various stalls set up in this area including The Little Black Dress Club (www.thelittleblackdressclub.co.uk) which won UK Personal Trainer of the Year 2012, University of Sunderland City space, Sunderland City Council, and Youth for Christ.
Next we headed to The Minister which was holding all of the relaxation stalls and we were greeted by Liz from Inspire Holistics who gave Reiki treatments to calm and relax you. Here’s a few pictures of the other bloggers indulging in them! Find them at www.inspireholistics.co.uk.
The final place we headed too was the Museum & Winter Gardens where they stall inside on everything to do with beauty,hair, skin and jewellery, and was stalls to get temporary tattoos so it was great fun! There was a semi-permanent makeup stand Yemanya (can follow on twitter @Yemanyaspmakeup) which create semi permanent natural looking eyebrows, eyes and lips. And another favourite stand of mine was the NYR Organic (www.uk.nyrorganic.com) and they sell the most gorgeous organic beauty creams, oils, gels and balms to make your skin super soft. They have also won various awards- most recent one Beauty Insider’s Choice 2012. Here' are some pictures.
All in all it was a fun filled girly day and a fun way to get involved and meet other bloggers! And also great success for Sunderland as a lot of the time it doesn’t get recognised as it’s not the biggest city in the North East.
Well done Katy for it running smoothly and thanks for letting me tag along. Also the goodie bag was lovely!
