On Saturday 7th July Simply Be were proud and delighted to be the lead sponsor for what proved to be an absolutely amazing event – Plus North, a plus size beauty and fashion event for bloggers and shoppers alike.
It was all organised by these two lovely ladies – Toni and Becky. *applauds*
Mhairi was responsible for ticket sales – here she is rocking our sarong skirt and shrug:
The Aspire venue in Leeds looked truly beautiful:
As did the cupcakes!
Lots of beauty and fashion brands had stands, including Simply Be of course. Here was our stand before and after the people arrived!
It was sooo lovely to meet everyone. We also raised £70 for charity selling handbag samples!
The highlight of the day though had to be our catwalk show (if we do say so ourselves). Thirteen fabulous bloggers all volunteered to model for us and they did such an amazing job! Visit our Facebook page or our Pinterest page for all the pics.
Here’s Rosie having her make up done by the lovely ladies from Benefit before the show:

It was great to see some familiar faces – and meet lots of news ones too. Here are Claire, Laura and friend – three blonde bombshells!
It really was a massive honour to be a part of this event and we’d like to say a great big thank you to everyone who help make it such a great success.
See you at the next one?
