The First Meet The Blogger London

Last weekend I attended the first Meet the Blogger event in London.

It’s the third event I’ve attended (Amsterdam and Stockholm previously) and I’ve got to say they are going from strength to strength.  It all took place in the brand spanking new ME London hotel on the Strand (Wow, is all I can say).

We had inspirational talks from keynote speakers, the lovely Yvonne Eijkenduijn of Yvestown Blog, and the effervescent Will Taylor of Bright Bazaar.  Followed by various workshops including Restoring your Vintage Furniture (Louisa Blackmore of West Egg), Design Terminology (Ana Aguilar-Corney) and Telling a Visual Story (photographer Paul Craig).

Dulux were also present telling us about the Spring/Summer trends, letting us try out the current craze for ombre effects (this was a lot of fun) and treating us all to a manicure.  Dulux colours only of course.

And I can’t not tell you about stylist Joanna Thornhill (who has a feature in the latest Heart Home mag) who did a brilliant presentation on how to turn the Dulux trends into blog posts.

We were then treated to a guided tour of the fabulous swanky hotel, including the rooftop bar.

It was such a lovely day mingling with blogger friends old and new.  I can’t wait for the next one in Amsterdam again this summer.

It may have been cold and grey outside but in the ME London hotel there was a warm glow.

    Great pics! Should have left my camera at home… 😉 I had such a lovely time, just wish I could have chatted to more people and “networked” (which I’m admittedly rubbish at), it all seemed to have gone so quickly! xo
