Hey Dawls 🙂
I hope your all keeping in good spirits!
August the 8th was our Cork Bloggers group meet up! It was also my very first meet up as I am still so new to this amazing blogging world! I must say when my boyfriend Philip was dropping me off to the Market Cafe on Perry St , which is where it was being held and totally closed off just for us, I was feeling super nervous to walk in through the doors alone and start meeting everyone! Even though to be fair I already felt like I knew a lot of people through chatting on social media and watching there snapchats lol! Needless to say after only a few seconds I was greeted by everyone in such a happy and friendly manner, I felt right at home!
Here we all are
I was never at The Market Cafe Perry St but I will definitely be returning! The decor inside was so pretty and sweet and the nibbles they provided were so different and yummy, perfect for a girly lunch date! The night got kicked off to a fantastic start with a talk from Tracey on her business Bia Beauty Skincare ! I loved listening to her story on how she started the company which makes skin care products good enough to literally eat!! It was so interesting. We then had a talk from two lovely girls from the Elizabeth Arden counter and they gave us the chance to win an 8 hour cream if we rolled and 8 on the dice… but of course I rolled a 7 lol! Next came Nathan Adams also known as mister Cork to speak about how to handle social media negativity and so on while being in the public eye, which I have to say he was great and spoke really well!
We all sat at group tables, were ever we landed really, with our glass of bubbly, a HUGE debenhams bag full to the brim of goodies and great company to have chats and ramble on about our blogging life and topics of the times! It was absolutely fantastic to finally meet the people I am chatting to the last few months and to be able to now out a face to the person! I enjoyed it emensily, but of course my sickness hit me that night, it was coming on for ages….as it does… starting with a sore throat but by the time I left the cloggers meet up I couldn’t breathe through my nose, my lips were SUPER dry and my voice was almost completely gone FML!! I was so looking forward to heading out afterward with the girls but no such luck this time 😦 ! Safe to say I cannot wait for the next event & I want to say a HUGE thank you to Shell whose blog is shell la belle & Marie whose blog is beaut mum for organizing the whole night so well!!
Here was my Hair & Make-Up look for the event
Lots Of Love,
