This year's event was enjoyable but notably different.
All the other bloggers that went agree with me on it: there were less stalls / vendors than last year. Now whether this was a deliberate thing (to allow for more foot traffic) or just an inevitability that last year's throng of US companies would fall back under EU regulation changes, I don't know.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed it! There was much less of a weave-stall presence - they became a side-line to the natural product parade. I attended day 2 (Monday 27th May 2013) of the event.
Of course, not all the companies really understood what this meant.
Hence, my goodie bags, though plentiful, will need sorting through before giveaways are planned.
There was NO bloggers lounge but the lady trying to organize it had a word with myself and fellow bloggers CrystalAfro and Ketishia, explaining the situation and promising something much better in the near future.
There should be a blogger's lounge event done before the end of the Summer, so we can look forward to that!
Enough chat, time for the pictures! Enjoy!
