#NRWsummer (using this hashtag for the event on Twitter)

bloggers event

Last weekend I had an awesome meet up with some fellow bloggers in Norwich at The Garden House pub. Most of the bloggers blog about fashion and make-up, so my husband Andy who is a lifestyle / photography blogger felt a little out of place at times I think! He is a wedding photographer based in Norwich

The three ladies who organised @courtypeach @Justinebblogger and @HMMUA planned out the whole afternoon.

The yoga was by Helen Shepherd yoga. She was awesome and all the ladies who joined in did great in front of a beer garden full of people!

Also they did a social media talk. This didn’t personally do a lot for me as it wasn’t really aimed at bloggers, just mentioned hootsuite and similar… which I think every social media person I have ever talked to goes on and on about! I am not really a fan of social media though as it wastes so much time. It is a good tool to drive traffic to your website, so shame this wasn’t mentioned more. Although he was good, I am a social media grump! Too many companies spam it and it just ends up full of ads. I would have been interested in a chat aimed at blogging though and how to increase audience etc.

The hair tutorials by Lucy were awesome. Although secretly I would have liked some easier ones I could have a chance at recreating! hehe. This was a great relaxed chat covering all sorts on how to care for your hair. I now know not to brush my hair wet and use my tangle teezer comb instead.

Me and Andy sadly had to leave just as the wonderful Hannah started her singing. She is a very talented lady.

I only discovered in the last few years how important a primer is before applying make-up, so really looking forward to trying this. To be applied before foundation to give smoother finish. #primer #makeup #bprepared #makeupprimer #nrwsummer #blogger

black tooth paste
Another item from the goodie bag…. black tooth paste! Seems odd to brush your teeth with charcoal, however it’s meant to help with whitening them. I’ll try to keep open minded! #blacktoothpaste #curaprox #whiteningtoothpaste #whiteteeth #blogger #nrwsummer
Red toe nails is my favorite, so looking forward to using this soon! #angelica
