The East Midlands bloggers meet up

I really enjoy attending blogger meet ups as they are the perfect opportunity to meet new bloggers, network and discover new brands. The East Midlands bloggers meet up was organised by some of my fellow blogger friends and I knew how much work and effort had gone into the event, so I was so excited to attend.

The meet up took place at Manhattan 34 bar on 13th August and it was a perfect sunny Saturday afternoon. Brands that were at the event included Blogosphere Magazine, Danique hairdressing, Cool as Publicity, Angel Eyes, Rothley Wines and Bru cafe. There were talks given by Gabby from Cool as Publicity and Alice Audley from Blogosphere Magazine which I found really useful with some great tips being shared. There was also a live singer called Becky Bruce, who kept all of the bloggers entertained whilst sipping on delicious cocktails from the bar.

After sampling some wine from Rothley Wine Estate, I tried one of Bru cafe's chocolate brownies. It was delicious and I will definitely be stopping at Bru for a coffee and cake soon! It was also great to see that there was a raffle in aid of the charities Bowel Cancer and Rainbows Hospice. There were some amazing prizes on offer including the Happiness Planner and beauty hampers, as well as vouchers and much more.

The afternoon ended with some lovely goodie bags being given out and I'm so grateful for the treats we received from brands including Lush, Carex, Matalan and Vita Coco. The event was a success and I wanted to thank the lovely bloggers who organised it, as everyone had a great time.

I was also vlogging the meet up in my latest vlog, so watch my video below to see what I got up to!
