#BloggersLunch at Pizza Express
So last weekend I headed to London for the #BloggersLunch and what would prove to be one of the busiest (and blogging packed!) weekends of my entire life so far. On Saturday morning I was up early, bright eyed and bushy tailed, after a (cheeky) Nandos and an early night on Friday, and made my way on the tube to Victoria for the #BloggersLunch at Pizza Express.
The #BloggersLunch proved a perfect opportunity to get to know some other bloggers before heading over to the #BloggersFestival. It’s always nerve wracking when you go to these events (and there were lots of “I’m so nervous!” twitter messages beforehand!) and you don’t know anyone so this was a perfect ice breaker. Luckily I already knew Charlotte from Discovering Charlotte from the last East Midlands Meet Up, so although I was a little nervous, this put me at ease. I found her plus Holly from The Holly Days and Judith from The Wee Blondie in Zara.
Obviously the food at the #BloggersLunch was delicious, as pizza is my fave, and I went for carb overload of cheesy garlic bread followed by a fiorentina pizza and, of course, a glass of wine. There were also cute homemade favours with white chocolate inside which, unfortunately Alfie ate when I got home (but that’s a whole other story). The best thing about bloggers is that as soon as you all meet, you literally become BFFs for the day and there was never a quiet moment with 20 girls all catching up and sharing stories. Obviously the usual topics came up – what cameras everyone uses, what sorts of posts people write, how we all feel about monetising our blogs. The only shame was that, because there were so many bloggers there, I didn’t get to chat to everyone, but I’m sure I will next time I’m at a London event!
It was the perfect start to the day and once we had filled our tummies, we set off towards the #BloggersFestival, probably the most fashionable (and biggest) group of bloggers in London that day.
