Bloggers Love Hub: Day 1

Tonight was the first of four Bloggers Love Hub evenings. I was looking forward to exploring what the evening had to offer so I invited my friend Mafe to join me for an hour out after a long day at university. We arrived at the lovely and tropical Mahiki near Green Park Underground Station and were checked off on the guest list before heading downstairs where a couple dozen bloggers and friends were to be found enjoying the likes of cupcakes, complimentary manicures, and networking with other bloggers and brands.
First up - free manicures from two of the friendliest and sweetest girls, Juliette Toop and Charlie Daley, who formed their own company focusing on YouTime. It's ingenious. You pay £1 per minute and they come to you! You can get a massage, manicure, pedicure, waxes, and/or a tint! Suppose you have a hen party or want to treat yourself to some pampering and youtime without having to leave the office or house. Well here's your answer! Toop & Daley are talented, friendly and will immediately put you at ease while giving you the same quality care as you'd expect in a high end salon.
Next up was my favourite brand -- D-Jewelsus. I never heard of this lovely lady but boy am I glad I have! She hand crafts leather fashion jewellery and no two pieces are the same. She will even do custom designs. Are you thinking what I am? Perfect Christmas and holiday gifts! 
An instant favourite (below) - isn't it gorgeous?
And look at these gorgeous geometric shapes and patterns and colours.
She can be contacted on Twitter and by e-mail.
Lastly - I found Glowbeads enchanting. Have you ever heard of them before? Well neither had I or perhaps I just didn't know their proper name. But how fun are these... glow beads "give the illusion of glowing when the light hits them". The bracelets are feminine and classic and could work with most any outfit. Another fab idea for gift giving!
If you are a fellow blogger and looking for a good networking opportunity doubled as a good night out, check out Bloggers Love and RSVP for one of their other 3 Hub nights! And be sure to check out these three lovely brands and their products.
Thanks to Bloggers Love for having me and to Mafe for joining me for an hour of fun.
