#Sotonmeetup - My first bloggers meet up experience!

A few weekends ago now I was lucky enough to attend my first ever bloggers meet up in Southampton. I live in deepest darkest Dorset and not much seems to happen round here for bloggers, so was more than happy to do the hour and a half drive to Southampton!

I’m not going to lie, that morning I was absolutely terrified and so nervous about going! Would it be really clique? Would people be friendly and talk to me? Would the fashion bloggers be judging my outfit? Would I be the oldest person there? My mind went into overdrive!
My fears were swiftly squashed and I was reminded what a drama queen I can be! Through the magic of Twitter I arranged to meet a few other bloggers at the train station, as I don’t know Southampton that well and was sure to get lost otherwise. After meeting the girls we walked to the Orange Rooms where the event was being held. We started off by having a natter and cocktails sat outside as it was such a gorgeous day.

We then headed inside and went upstairs to the Tiki Bar which had a really cool Hawaiian vibe about it. I sat at the table with the lovely Tori, Ami and Marina who were all so friendly. In the real world I don’t have any friends who blog so it was really nice to natter about all things blogging with people who completely get it.

Once we were seated it was the time for lunch, I had the Chicken Nacho Wrap with fries. It arrived on a tray in a cardboard container box which was pretty cool. It was such a good sized portion and was so cheap. Most importantly it was really delicious!

After Lunch Alice and Amy who were the beautiful ladies behind this event, held a fun raffle. We were then each given a jam packed goodie bag, seriously it was filled to the brim!

I would like to say a massive Thank You to Alice for being a fab host, she definitely has a talent for event organising! I am so glad I built up the confidence to go, I had such a lovely afternoon and I can’t wait to find out about more blogger events and meet ups which I can get involved in!  


  1. I know exactly what you mean - I went on my first blogger meetup recently and was so worried haha! Looks like you had a great time, it's so lovely to meet people with similar interests x

  2. I have never been to a blogger meet up because there are none (that I know of) round where I am - Manchester. I am glad you had a great time and I hope to meet up in a blogger event in future!

    Much Love,

  3. I'm glad you enjoyed your first meet-up! Mine was not long ago, and I've been to another since then, and I was nervous (but loved it!) both times! It is so nice to meet other bloggers.
