Some of you may have heard of Smoky Not Smudgy, especially because it's been running for 7 years now and every year it gets bigger and better! This was my second year of attendance and it definitely was a memorable one especially due to the people I met.
So what exactly is Smoky Not Smudgy?
For those of you who don't know, Smoky Not Smudgy is an event held in aid of charity week. It is a ladies only papering event where women from all over the globe attend. It consists of
" LUXURY SERVICES, BEAUTY TREATMENTS, FASHION BOUTIQUES, PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIOS, A SOUK BAZAAR, MASTER CLASSES, TUTORIALS BY INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS AND EVEN A SHOW STOPPING CATWALK."
The money raised during charity week goes towards aiding orphans and needy children.
Here are some of the companies and their stalls that attended on the day.
The owner of Zans Creations, MashaAllah is such a nice person. I met her whilst looking lost and trying to find the venue. I follow her on instagram and completely love all her bouquets, they really are amazing! Her bouquets are something that can be kept forever as a beautiful memory. If you've never checked out her stuff you really should!
This lady's mother in law makes the most amazing jams ever. They all tasted so good it probably took me half an hour to decide which 6 I wanted. The Blueberry and Honey is just too good, unfortunately, she didn't have that in a larger jar :(.
These ladies hand-make beautiful headpieces (at a very reasonable price) one of which I just could not keep away from! I'll try and post a picture of it sometime. The sisters themselves are so genuine and nice, makes me love their products even more!
