On Saturday, I got the opportunity to go to a blogger meet up organised by the very lovely Rhianna in Leeds. 70 of us spent 3 hours at Black Swan where we had an incredible festive themed day. Stupidly, I didn’t take any photos (I’m the worst blogger) but I can still tell you about it.
(Everyone from here on out will be linked to their twitter accounts because that’s easier than finding blogs)
When I got to Leeds I met the very lovely Kayleigh and Kirsty and we actually went to the location early and help Rhianna with the set up. I also got to meet Laura and Joe at this point and we just milled around for an hour and a bit until people started to arrive.
Once people were arriving, we have drinks and popcorn and lots of chatter. I spent most of the afternoon with Imii, Sophie and Tasha (and even got the train back with Sophie & Tasha). We decorated cupcakes, thanks to Carrieanne saving the day, and we drank the free iced tea. Basically there was just a lot of chatter with some lovely bloggers.
I was very lucky to win some Manuka Doctor goodies in the raffle, where all proceeds went to Young Minds. I’m not sure on the total figure raised but my guess it was well into the hundreds.
I’d like to thank all of the brands that contributed to the event who it couldn’t have happened without. I’m yet to try my BLK water but I’m excited to see what it tastes like (once I’ve taken an instagram photo of it). As I’m writing this post I’m eating the sweets from the goodie bag!
If you’re yet to go to a blogger meet, you definitely need to take the chance. There are so many around and you can read all about them on twitter. I’m so glad that this was my first event since I had a great afternoon and I’ll remember this for a long, long time.
