How many lovelies can you get in one venue at one time?
Quite a lot as it turned out at the recent blogger meet hosted by Catherine from Not Dressed as Lamb at The Imperial.
A lovely opportunity to meet other like minded souls of a similar age, also blogging and, in many cases, also parents but without this being our focus.
We all love the kids dearly but our blogs happen to be about things other than parenting and that’s OK.
A glass of Prosecco or two chased down with a delicious Canape always goes down a treat when walking into these events.
I had only briefly met one other blogger before, – Amanda at Ginger Mum and it was lovely to have a proper chat this time.
Many women came alone but within a few minutes everyone was busily chatting about anything and everything.
I managed to break the ‘Golden’ blogging rule of taking pictures and confess that I have very few of this fine event.
I also have to confess that face to face meeting and chatting wins hands down for me and this occasion was no exception.
Hopefully my rhetoric will make up for my lack in the picture department!
It was lovely to meet Catherine for the first time. I really appreciated that she was willing to share information that was really helpful but also quite personal to her.
There are many questions that are asked that don’t always get answered in the blogging world and Catherine answered a couple for me and I really value that honesty and support.
Sometimes the smallest things can become a ‘brick wall’ but they can often be easily answered when others are willing to share.
There was lots of lovely examples of this sharing on the day.
I’m so glad I was a part of it.
And then there was the lovely Nayna and her team from Hope giving a really interesting and insightful glimpse into the Hope journey against a backdrop of their beautiful garments.
I think we were all totally overwhelmed to have received the beautiful and generous gift from Hope and I cannot wait to start wearing mine. Most unexpected – thank you so much for this.
We were also showered with lovely gifts in our goody bags.
Delicious Macaroons from The Imperial …
And a stunning bracelet from Lizzy O …….
How to make a girl feel special!
So may wonderful things and such a great day for so many reasons.
Thank you to each and every one of you wonderful ladies. It was a fabulous day and I really enjoyed meeting you all.
I didn’t get a chance to speak to everyone but I look forward to many more of these lovely events.
Until the next one …..
