Yesterday Laura and I attended out first blogger meet up, organised by FABBloggers in Leeds. I took a few photos and thought I’d share a run down of our day as mentioned in yesterdays diary post, if you want to see what I wore check out this link

We arrived early and went for a bite to eat and a small tipple for Dutch courage – after all we were walking into a room full of strangers later – at Los Iguanas which was delicious!

We were greeted by the organisers, Ray and Tor, fellow bloggers who encouraged us to mingle, network and introduced us to various brands who also spoke on the day.

Hearts and Bows (the women’s clothing range from ARK) were a highlight. It was like peeking into a fashion bloggers wardrobe and the prices appealed to my inner bargain hunter. Metallic mini skirts and tie dye crop tops are a stretch for me so I’d rather not break the bank trying something new and I will be compiling a wish list online very soon!

20130310-154517.jpgWe also met a couple of lovely girls from Best British Bloggers who did a general blogging Q&A as well as a talk on their engagement team and why they’re so great. I’ve worked with them on campaigns in the past and would recommend any blogger register on their site as they have no stats criteria or requirements and can put you in touch with relevant brands and great opportunities.. Win Win!

We met some lovely people, some of which I’d really like to arrange another meet up with soon (Hollie, I’m looking at you!) and while waiting for our train look who Laura spotted stocking up on makeup sponges in Boots..

David Gest!!! So not only did I get to meet some fellow bloggers but we did some impromptu celeb spotting on our way home!

I vlogged a little but it’s tough to get others involved when you’re meeting for the first time so it’s just me and Laura..

And here are the links I speak about in the video, basically everyone we met!

    Haha, love the pic of Laura stalking David Guest. It was such a good day, I was impressed by Ark and their prices too- the skirts were lovely but I don’t think I am daring enough to wear some of them sadly!

    Was lovely to meet you and Laura after watching your videos/reading your blogs for the past few years!
