I have a confession to make. The Big You, cherry on top of the blogger-event-cake, was not really a part of the most recent pressdays held by the Antwerpian PR agencies. TBY, as bloggers and fashion-lovers so lovingly abbreviate it, already took place in early October of this year. I lost the SD-card containing the photos. Yes, I lost two SD-cards in one weeks time. But can we forget about my carelessness, and instead focus on the amazing products I got to see, smell, taste and test?
You might wonder “what is TBY?”. The Big You is a half-yearly public relations event hosted by UPR to introduce their clients to Belgian style and beauty bloggers. This year, the event took place in a unique loft not to far from where I live in the city. I arrived at the door on the same moment as Inez, which made entering the party a lot less awkward. It was my very first time attending, as I was always too late to apply for an open-invite for the previous editions. There was a bit of confusion at the door still, as my blog name was interpreted wrongly and therefore they couldn’t immediately find my name on the list.
When we entered, a kind young lady guided us to the first booth where we were united with our other blogger friends. The venue was wide, open and light and there were brand representatives waiting patiently at their booths to show us their latest items. There were SO many, that I can not discuss them all. If you want to read all about the brands, I suggest you visit the UPR website, and take a look at their list of clients for a short introduction. In this post today, I’d like to focus on all the things I saw that I (or the boyfriend, read on!) loved during this edition of TBY!
