Yesterday I got the train through to Glasgow with the lovely Zoe and Lauren to go to the Scottish Bloggers Meet. I’ve never been to a bloggers event before so I was really excited to meet the people behind some of the blogs I’ve been reading for ages as well as discover a few new faces. We started off in The Counting House pub for a drink (pitchers of course) and a chance to get to know everyone a little bit. Charlene and Rani, who organised the whole thing, surprised us all with lovely wee goodie bags full of haircare goodies supplied by Alison Jameson Consultants. The shampoo smells amazing, will definitely be testing it out tomorrow!
Then we all headed over to the Thrill Room at Rox for an amazing afternoon tea. The tiny glittery cupcakes were so good and I couldn’t say no to a glass of champagne, of course! The room itself was gorgeous with mirrored walls and ceilings and pretty much the nicest furniture I’ve ever sat on! The lovely ladies at Rox were kind enough to give us all a little gift bag with a pair of really pretty earrings to take home.
After that we had a wander round a couple of shops and headed to the German market for some sausages followed by churros and crepes (with insane amounts of nutella!). We said goodbye to some of the group who had to make their way home but the rest of us headed off to find a pub where we could get ourselves a much needed sit down and a drink! It was so nice to chat to everyone about blogging and tweeting etc. – I don’t think any of my real life friends would be interested if I started talking about Google keyword searches! After a few too many shots and skittle bombs it was time to make my way to the train home again, wish I could have stayed longer!
Hopefully I’ll be seeing you all again soon, another meetup in 2012 is definitely necessary! Feel free to add me on Twitter for a chat.
Have you ever been to a blogger meet-up?
