Corky's Blogger Event

Hi guys,

So I went to my first ever blogger event on Friday (31 March) and I absolutely loved it!

A couple of months ago I received an email from Catherine at Corky's asking me if I was interested in coming along to their blogger event in Manchester and, after hearing a little about what it involved, I was definitely interested.

As it was my first ever blogger event I wasn't sure what to expect at all but I was really pleasantly surprised and this night has definitely set the standard for all other events I attend in the future - it was amazing!


Corky's invited two other brands to feature at the event: Selfie Sisters UK and The Gypsy Shrine. The event was split into three sections for this reason: an area for Corky's, an area for Selfie Sisters UK and an area for The Gypsy Shrine.

When I arrived I was given an envelope filled with tokens for the night which was lovely, meaning I could visit each part of the event for free (and I could drink lots and lots of cocktails!)


With Corky's being an alcohol brand we had the opportunity to try their alcohol on the night. I have to say Corky's schnapps are the perfect addition to any cocktail!

There were so many different flavours! I especially loved the Raspberry and Sour Cherry which I had quite a few times throughout the night.

There was a mini 'Cocktail Masterclass' section where you could go to the bar and order a cocktail of your choice or simply state which flavours you fancied and you could make up a drink.

An amazing cocktail and donuts - does it really get any better?!


Possibly the best bit was the amaaazing cart where you could decorate your cocktails with endless amounts of sweets and goodies - they even had edible glitter.


Can we just take a minute to appreciate how cute the cart is... It's so girly and cute, I LOVE it!

This balloon was everything so obviously I had to get a photo with it... P.s. excuse my extremely awkward hand.

You were also given tokens to be used at the main bar where you could request a cocktail of your choice. We opted for a 'Refresher' cocktail which was sooo nice and refreshing and it even had a mini refresher sweet to go with it - bonus!

Corky's really looked after us - constantly checking we were okay, handing out additional drinks tokens and supplying food throughout the night which was yummy.

If you know me, you'll know how much I love all things glitter so I loved The Gypsy Shrine stand!

I was going out after the event so I opted to just have glitter on my shoulders/arms rather than my face (I definitely couldn't miss out).

I received so many comments throughout the night whilst I was out from people showing love for my amazing glitter!

I also received a free pot of glitter of my choice which I absolutely love and can't wait to use!! I chose the 'Mermaid' glitter pot.


I love the mix of chunky and thin glitter in this glitter pot. The pots are also huge and will last you ages so are definitely value for money! I will definitely be checking out more of their products.

To learn more about The Gypsy Shrine or to purchase their products, visit their website here or follow them on Instagram @thegypsyshrine.


The third and final part of the evening was with the amazing Selfie Sisters! Selfie Sisters are a UK brand that feature at events and special occasions and, similar to a photobooth, take photos. 

Corky's in action!

You can choose the theme of the border for each particular event, which on this occasion was the Corky's logo.

What I loved most was that you were able to personalise your photos. A bit like Snapchat, you are able to draw on the picture itself whilst it is up on the mirror and can then choose whether to skip or print the photo.

I thought this was such a fresh and different idea and it worked so well. I definitely need this mirror in my life for nights out!

I will definitely be contacting Selfie Sisters UK for future events.

To contact them follow them on Instagram @selfiesistersuk.


At the end of the night I received an amazing goodie back from Corky's which included:

A bottle of their Raspberry schnapps (my favourite flavour).

 Personalised straws

A selection of Kiehl's skincare products, together with a free facial at Kiehl's!

Does this goody bag get much better?!


I had the best night and would definitely recommend an event with Corky's to anyone in the future!

I hope you've enjoyed reading. As always I would love to hear from you ♥.
