Bloggers United AU x Lush Event

HI EVERYONE. I took a break from blogging the last two weeks to get started on a long-overdue overhaul of my blog, what I want to do with it, and how I'm going to do it. I still have a long ways to go, but I've gotten into the groove and am SUPER excited to be doing some new things on this blog and refining some old ones. 

I found Bloggers United Australia through another blogger friend of mine that used to live in Sydney that I knew from America (shoutout to Shane of Atlasadrift). I had posted in the group looking to collaborate with other bloggers in the Sydney area, and was then also sent an invite for the upcoming Sydney event!

If you've followed this blog for at least 2 years, then you will know that I used to go to (and sometimes plan) blogger events much more often than I do now! I met some amazing people through it and have had so many amazing opportunities as a result of this blog.

For most of the last two years, this blog had gone on a hiatus with random posts here & there due to a burnt out me and many changes happening in my personal life. The last month or so I've really started pushing and hustling hard to get this blog back up & running and also reassessing my goals for LNL and any future endeavors I plan to jump into this year! I have brand new clarity on what I want to do with this blog and so to start, I wanted to connect with some local brands and bloggers. This event was the perfect segue into that. 

I got invited to BUA's 2nd birthday event, hosted by Lush AU/NZ over the weekend and it was so great to attend my first blogger event in Australia!

Everyone I met was so nice and welcoming and I quickly connected with a few of the girls there! 

We had a few activities over the night, but the main event was creating one of the face masks that the store sells in-store. We also got to spend a lot of time sampling the items and figuring out what products would be best for our own needs. 

We also got a fun goodie bag with a few items to try out, including the face masks we created earlier in the night! So far, I've tried Catastrophe (the blueberry mask we made) and American Cream (a conditioner that I got to take home for myself). So far, both are great, and I feel even better knowing that everything is organic and good for you. Lush is officially one of my favorite brands ever!

I am so thankful for the blogging community in general. It has changed my life in so many ways and I wouldn't trade it for the world. It's more than just fun and free stuff; it's also about connecting with others through the sharing of stories. It is my favorite part.

Thank you BUA & Lush for hosting such an amazing event, and I cannot wait for more!
