I was a whole mess of nerves and excitement when it came to waiting for the Bristol blogger meet but I am so so glad I went, it was a lovely day thanks to the fantastic Emily (from Pretty Please Blog) and Phil (Phil McCormick Events), who organized it, and I met some really nice new people.
I was a bit daft and left it until last minute to tweet and find out if anyone else was travelling from Cheltenham but I was incredibly lucky that the lovely Caitlin (from I’m a Damn Student What do I Know?) was planning on going by train, too, so with some Very last minute planning we met up and travelled together. I expect you can imagine quite how much stress was lifted by not having to travel alone, and not having to walk from the train station to Revlotions alone. Revs was a really nice, beautifully decorated place and we were lucky to have the whole mezzanine to ourselves!
Part of me wishes I’d talked to more people whilst I was there, but, actually, I met a small group of people who were really lovely and spending the afternoon together meant we had the chance to chat loads and get to know each other, which definitely makes up for that.
Just before we left we actually got a photo of ourselves together rather than just taking photos of other people! This is Naaj (from Naaj Ronas Lifestyle), Alex (from Medicated Follower of Fashion), Me, and Caitlin.
Lastly, we also spent some time with two lovely bloggers, Molly (from What Molly Loves) and Georgina (from Georgina Marie), but they left earlier so I didn’t get to talk to them quite as much and they weren’t there for our photo! There were others that I spoke to a little, but it was these lovely ladies that I spent a whole lot of time chatting to!
Caitlin and I got a little bit soaked… well soaked through, on the way back to the train station so it was a rather cold footed journey home and our goody bags had to be re-bagged so that they didn’t split but at least it was on the way home, not on the way there!
There were loads of really generous brands that contributed to our goody bags, just look what we got (I managed to miss out a can of Coco browns tanner from my photo but that was in there, too!)
