#KindBloggerBoss Cocoa Brown Bloggers Breakfast

*Warning: Picture heavy post!!*

I was absolutely thrilled, a little overwhelmed, and very lucky, to be invited last week to a wonderful event organised by the Cocoa Brown team; Marissa, Stephanie and Kate, a Bloggers Breakfast in Penneys HQ to celebrate the launch of Cocoa Brown's new Kind haircare range.

It was a super early morning for me but I was determined to go to this event as opportunities like this don't come often.
It was my first event as a blogger and hosted by a big brand in none other than Penneys HQ on Parnell Street, Dublin. I have been an advocate for Marissa and Cocoa Brown since the very very beginning so it was an honour to be part of this event, and it felt right that a Cocoa Brown launch was my first event as a blogger.
I was nervous but as soon as I arrived and greeted by the CB ladies, they made me feel so welcome. It was a pleasure to meet Marissa in this setting, (I have met her at one of her workshops before) and to finally meet Stephanie and Kate after being in contact for so long and they have been a great help to me. I was very excited to be there and to be part of such a great morning. 

The event was to celebrate the launch of the new Cocoa Brown Kind Shampoo & Conditioner 200ml packs in Penneys' stores. To be at an event in Penneys HQ with some of Ireland's biggest bloggers, well, I was pinching myself to say the least. The Penneys/Primark international headquarters are incredible; so modern and on trend, as you'd expect them to be!

The area set aside for the Cocoa Brown event was laid out beautifully with goody bags at every place setting filled with our own bottles of the shampoo and conditioner and our own #KindBloggerBoss bar of chocolate, mmmm! And the fashion breakfast spread that Penneys put on for us.. well, it was outstanding and so tasty, it looked too good to eat! Lots of healthy goodness was on offer; gluten free protein balls, green juices, avocado snacks, fruit skewers and much more so thank you to the fabulous ladies at Primark for arranging that.

After everyone got their teas and coffees, Marissa gave a little talk about her new Kind collection and introduced some of the Penneys team; the head of beauty & home, and the head of buying ~ lucky lucky ladies.

It was SO lovely to have the opportunity to meet, talk with and get acquainted with other bloggers, and add each other on Snapchat and the rest!
It was an incredible feeling to be mingling with some of Ireland's top bloggers whom I look up to and am inspired by, and bloggers like myself who were also at their first event. Everyone was so friendly and the time just vanished!

I have reviewed the Cocoa Brown Kind range here ~ I am a big fan of this range.
I was waiting hard on the new 200ml sizes to be released so I have been using the shampoo and conditioner since the event and I just love it. I have said in my review that these products smell divine! The Kind range makes my hair so soft and volumised - I have even had people complimenting me on how healthy and volumised my hair looks.  

The Cocoa Brown Kind range is available in Penneys stores for just €3 each (bargain!!) and pharmacies nationwide!
Thank you Marissa, Stephanie and Kate for having me at the Bloggers Breakfast, you sure know how to throw an awesome event :)
