I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Annual Prezzybox Jingle Mingle event. The event was located at The Night Owl in Digbeth; which is an absolutely stunning venue and I can’t believe it’s the first time I’ve ever attended. (Would 100% recommend!). My first Christmas event of 2018, and you know what that means!! Christmas is nearly here! I’m one of those who finds it hugely exciting to get into the spirit, regardless of whether it’s March, August, or October.

I met Nati and Katrina in the city centre and we went to Byrons’ for some food (I had some halloumi fries which were absolutely incredible!). We were shortly joined by the lovely Chloe too, before heading down to Digbeth to locate the event.

Welcome to the Prezzybox Jingle Mingle

When we arrived we were first given a free drink; I decided to opt for a glass of Prosecco (because, why not?!) and a browse around some of the products on show. Many of the items are actually unique to Prezzybox, making it a great site to pick up something unusual. I loved the customisation on loads of the items; who’d be expecting to receive a yoga mat with their name on?! My favourite items are definitely their unusual eye-masks and the Celebrity Christmas baubles!

There were also a variety of Wild Olive bath melts on show which looked absolutely stunning on the tray – and we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to make our own! We were initially given a motivational talk from Zak Edwards, the founder of Prezzybox, who discussed exactly how Prezzybox came about. I had no idea prior to this that the brand originated in Birmingham, and it really gave the brand a wonderful family feel.

During the event we were treated to a flat lay workshop (which was absolutely incredible) and also the opportunity to make our own bath melts. I don’t actually have a photograph of my bath melt – I don’t think I quite had the knack, but it was such a fun experience and I absolutely loved having a strawberry scented bath! The thing that I love about Wild Olive is that their items are all handmade in Derbyshire; which is very nearby to myself and whats’ even better is that the ingredients are all natural. The flat lay workshop was fantastic also; I learnt so much about how the brand create their wonderful photos and also picked up some advice for myself; in terms of using my tripod more effectively, using the best backdrops and how to get the best lighting.

Following this we listened to a talk from Eltoria, all about how she managed to turn her blog/youtube into a business. She had so many tips and tricks that I’d never even thought of and I’m incredibly pleased that I had the opportunity to listen. Theres’ nothing more motivating than listening to someone who’d once been in your shoes and has made a success of her brand.

    Reading your post has got me in the festive mood. Love that you decided to have a Prosecco, I mean if it is there you should always have a glass. This sounds like such a fun event and I am jealous of the flatlay workshop, I definitely think I need one of those!
    Great post and you also have some lovely pictures!
