East Midlands Bloggers Meet!



So on Saturday I got on a train from Leicester and travelled to Nottingham for my first #eastmidsmeetup with some fellow bloggers. 
We had been arranging our first get together for a few months and I was really excited to meet some of the people I have been talking to and finally put faces to names of them.

7 of us turned up for the first meeting which I thought was great considering our group hadn't been set up that long ago and then we headed with our bags full of delicious food and headed to Nottingham Castle for a picnic and a natter. We obviously spoke about nothing more than blogging, our favourite bloggers and also our favourite posts to read. It was great to network with these ladies and openly talk about the blogging community. I have never experienced a big group of girls get on so well and instantly in such a short space of time, that felt so comfortable with one another too! After indulging in all our glorious picnic food we decided to be cultural and waltz around the Nottingham Castle. 


It was actually full of wonderful bits of Nottingham history and we all had a laugh at one another too! I even got myself walking around an Art Gallery which never really happens.
Afterwards we decided to head to a pub outside of the castle for a sneaky bev and to decide on details for our next meet up in the hope that we can attract a lot more East Midlands based bloggers to join us too! I'm organising the next one too so there's a lot of stuff to be done over the upcoming weeks as I would like us to do some activities and go for some lunch together.



thanks to Chelsea, Ellie, Samantha, Kirsty, Hannah and Rachael for making my first blogger event a wonderful experience. (you can go and check their blogs out by clicking their names!)
