Midlands Meet Ups - watch this space!


Blogging is great and I have made some fab friends online as a result but sometimes, you just want to meet people face-to-face. 

Rather than waiting for someone else to arrange a meet up in the Midlands, I organised my own event for mummy and lifestyle bloggers with my friend Emma

The first ever #midsblogmeet took place on Saturday 22nd February 2014 in Nottingham and over a couple of months of planning and organising, we built a list of 30 bloggers keen to come along. We worked with some fantastic brands, including Weleda, Tommee Tippee, Poddle Pod and MamaBabyBliss, to put together prize packages and goody bags for everyone on the day, plus I built a relationship with the local Body Shop, who gave a talk on new products and provided exclusive discounts for our guests.

The feedback on the event has been amazing, both from those who attended and those who wished they could have been there, so we're currently planning some further meet ups for the near future. 

We had such fun putting organising the first meet up and have lots of ideas on how we can do more later this year. As we both have blogs that cover a variety of interests, and many of our blogger friends are the same, we're working on planning separate meet ups for mummy bloggers, beauty bloggers and craft bloggers. Why organise just one event when you can organise three?!

We already have a list of brands who want to be on board and from the response we've had, we know there's so many people who would like to come so keep an eye out for details over the next few weeks.

If you're a brand and would like to be involved in any future mummy / beauty / craft blogger meet ups, please contact me - we'd love to work with you.

    1. Hi Lauren - we will do! We're looking at hosting these at different locations but they will be in the Midlands and we'll keep in mind where people such as yourself live.

      It was so nice to meet you and the others, I'm sure that even meeting up for a coffee would be brilliant but I'm sure we'll have a few more things up our sleeves! ;)
