NWMeet 2.0 Haul and Experience

Hi guys!
Yesterday I went to #NWMeet 2.0, and it was honestly so amazing just like the one I attended in September. The event was held in Ameriesko on Bold Street, which does the best chocolate milkshakes, and has such a chic vibe. As with everything that involves meeting new people I was super nervous, but like last time, every person I met was lovely and made me feel so welcomed. Blogging events are still new to me, and I'm always surprised at how easy it is to get chatting to people you've never met before. I didn't take too many pictures as I was too busy chatting away, but I thought I'd show you some of the bits I received in the goody bag and raffle. I haven't mentioned everything since the goody bag was huge, just some of my favourites (although obviously I'm excited about all the items, Thank you so much to the brands that sent items!)  
When I opened my goody bag and saw the Make Up Geek eye shadows I felt a bit emotional - I've been in two minds about purchasing these for a long time, so to receive two beautiful shades (Charmed and Barcelona Beach) was incredibly exciting. I've just ordered a Z Palette to store them and build up a collection. Another item I couldn't quite believe was the Nanshy Precise Bent Eyeliner brush; I've been coveting this brand of brushes for ages, and can't wait to try it out. The final item in my top three I think is the LiLash eyelash serum, which is proven to lengthen your lashes, something my stubby natural lashes are definitely in need of! Once I've tried this out, I'll let you know what I think for sure.
Falsies and fake nails are constantly in my feelunique basket these past few weeks, so I was pleased to find a pair of Kiss lashes, and some nails from Elegant Touch and Impress (those ones are unbelievably gorgeous.) It was great to receive lots of products that I know I'll get lots of use of, and would probably have found their way into my beauty stash regardless of being gifted them!
I have to confess that I've never actually used a cleanser, but this Tropic Smoothing Cleanser looks intriguing, and I can't wait to up my skincare routine and give this a whirl - the packaging this product came in is too pretty for words. Following that skincare theme, I was over the moon to find a DermaV10 Micellar Water; I've been eyeing these waters up for months whenever I go to Boots, so to finally have one to try out is exciting. This brand gave a lot of goodies - Thank you DermaV10!
Some final bits that I can't wait to use include the Wet Brush Pro Detangling brush - a hot pink brush? YES. My hair constantly gets into tangles, so I'm sure this product will get a ton of use, as well as the Bloom Candles Candle Set that I received in the raffle. Hannah kindly let me choose a prize as she had already won, and I'm so thankful. I think the candle in the scent 'Fig and Cassis' is my favourite, and I'm actually burning it right now as I type this up. The Loreal Color Riche nail polishes in 'Rose Paradise' and 'Black Diamond' are absolutely lovely, and I already have a sister pestering to get her use out of them (she's practically a nail artist, why can't I have her talent???)


In the bag was also some personalised goodies for the event, like a planner and a chocolate bar with #NWmeet 2.0 printed on to the front - that chocolate is long gone! Thank you so much to Katy (thelilacscrapbook) for organising this fab event, it was beyond my expectations and we all appreciate the work you put into it.
Have you ever been to an event? Are there any products I hauled that you'd like to see a review of?
