The East Mids Meet Up!

A few weeks ago I attended the East Mids Meet up in Leicester at the Manhattan 34 Bar, which was such a nice venue and the cocktails were delicious if you are ever in the area I would definitely check it out! The event was also a great way for the organises to raise a bit of money for a few charities close to them which I think was really nice, by setting up a raffle which also added a fun element to the day with some really great prizes.

The afternoon started with an ‘ice breaker’ where you were given a fact and you had to find the blogger it belonged to. Luckily I met a friend who is also a blogger over at laurasnow.co.uk before the event so we could go together as we both decided it was a bit daunting to go solo, but for people who did this was a great way to get chatting to others!

There were a lot more bloggers attending than I thought there would be but it was nice to finally meet some other local bloggers, I was starting to wonder if there were many from the Midlands. There were also a couple of talks by the blogosphere magazine and a local PR company, which gave you a great insight into the blogger industry and lots of helpful tips to come away with.

Local brands showcased at the event, I got my hair curled by the lovely ladies at Danique Hairdressing who offer a range of different services, you can find them here – Danique Hairdressing Angel Eyes were also there who specialise in lash extensions. We were lucky enough to get a voucher to use so I am really excited about getting mine done after seeing a few of the girls lashes at the event. They have a really strong emphasise on training all their girls one to one so you know its safe and you’ll always get an amazing set where ever you go, find them here – Angel Eyes UK. Leicester’s very own Bru were there too, with a range of different cakes to sample which all looked incredible, to find out more and see where there coffee shop is check out – Bru Coffee.
