#NWBloggermeet - My First Blogger Event


Last week I got to go to my first ever blogger event.Which was absolutely amazing and I couldn't have asked for a nicer meet up and for nicer bloggers to meet. But I'll talk about that in a bit and I'll start at the beginning.

This event was planned by the fabulous Katie from Curvaceous Beauty  and she posted on twitter saying there were some places open to go to the blogger event so I emailed her and she said yes! So finally the day came and honestly I was really nervous, as I had no idea what it would be like, I had never meet another blogger before in real life but everyone was talking using the hash tag #NWBloggermeet so I could see who was going which made me feel a little better.

I arrived a little early to the meet up which gave me a chance to talk to Katie and some other of the girls when they turned up which was lovely, until we were all lead in to where the event was held, which was The Button Boutique (which is the absolute cutest place I have ever been!) After a while of everyone getting settled, we had the lovely Georgia from She Might Be Loved  as a guest speaker, and she talked about 'How to run a successful blog' and answered many questions we had to ask her, and this was amazing, to hear other people talk about blogging and everything surrounding it, such as advertising, business and getting your blog name out there, and for a blogger who is still quite new to this, it was so helpful to hear.

After Georgia had finished talking to us and answering questions, we had two brands come and talk to us which were, a jewelry company called Stella and Dot, who products are beautiful and Tropic Skincare who brought some hand cream for us to try, which made our hands feel so soft, it was brilliant.

After the brands I had talked to us, we were offered tea and cake and given the chance to mingle with all the other bloggers. Everyone was so lovely and I got to meet some amazing people, and got to chat a lot about blogging, and I even got to meet Jemma, whose blog I have adored for a very long time, and she is so insanely sweet, I'm so glad I got to meet her , we spent a lot of time talking about different aspects of blogging, and she gave me some amazing advice for blogging which was so helpful, so Thank You Jemma!.

After a little bit of mingling we decided to have a look at what the brands had brought to show us. Stella and Dot, had brought lots of jewelry with them, and oh my god it was beautiful, they had statement necklaces, delicate necklaces, rings, purses and a lot more, whilst Tropic skincare had brought a lot of their skincare range as well as many make-up products that they produce. All of the products shown to us were amazing and would definitely recommend to anyone.

After all this, a few of the bloggers started to head home, however a fair few of us stayed to keep chatting as a group, which was brilliant, it felt like I had known these girls for a very long time, and of course the inevitable time came when we all wanted to take pictures of everything, as everything and everyone looked amazing so we all took pictures of the cakes, products, venue and lastly pictures of us all together.  
  


At this point, it was getting slightly late and the shop needed to close so we were given some amazing goodie bags prepared by Katie (Thank you Katie!) and headed into Liverpool so people could catch their trains. Walking and talking with these girls felt so easy, you would never have thought we had only met a few hours ago. So the time came and we said goodbye to some of the girls and Me, Jemma and Lisa, headed into town for a bit of shopping. First we headed in The Body Shop as Jemma wanted to say hi to another blogger Aisling , whose blog I have loved for a while, so it was lovely to meet her and after that we popped into Lush, as the new collection had come in and we wanted to take a look, there were so many different things in there and me and Jemma were smelling everything, everything smelt amazing and Jemma and Lisa picked up some products, so we waited in line for them to pay and walked out. By this point it was getting very late in the day so we all started to walk home. We walked to my bus stop where I had to hug them and say goodbye before jumping on my bus and heading home after an amazing day.

I had an absolutely amazing time at my first ever blogger meet up and I meet some absolutely lovely girls, who made me feel very welcome in this community, which some of whom I consider friends now, which is lovely. Hopefully we can all meet up again soon, it would be great to catch up with you all.

Here is what I recieved in the goodie bag :)
(I also received a cake pop, but that didn't last till I took the picture ;) )



All in all, I had a great time at the #NWBloggermeet and Thank You so much to Katie for organising it. It was brilliant.

Write again soon x

  1. It looks like everyone had such a good time! I've seen the Stella and Dot products on other blogs and they look beautiful. I'd never heard of Tropical Skincare though, I must check them out!I think blogger meet-ups are such great opportunities for people to network, and to make new friends. The goodie bags look fantastic too.
    On a completely unrelated note, I'm pretty sure I went to school with you! We learnt guitar together?
