#NWBLOGGERMEETUP PRESTON

BLOGGERS:


I think I’m about the only one of us that hasn’t blogged about this yet so I better get a shimmy on! On Sunday I headed into town to meet some fab northern bloggers. Claire organised #nwbloggermeetup as we don’t often get ‘events’ or planned blogger meets up nooorth that often & she did a wonderful job! Thank you Claire!

I know everyone says this but it is really strange meeting internet people in real life, even though you can talk to someone over twitter but at the end of the day, it’s nice to be able to talk face to face & see what people are really like as I think it’s (or at least I find it) quite hard to get my true personality across over my blog & social media sometimes & I’m not the most confident of people so it was really nice to meet these ladies who all share very similar interests that non bloggers maybe don’t ‘get’. What I’m trying to say ladies of #nwbloggermeetup it was lovely to meet you all & I’m sure I will be seeing some of you again very soon! ^_^

We started off in Moka then headed down to Coco Boo & Retro Rehab which are a couple of small boutiques hiding away down the cobbley Preston side streets. I am a big fan of Coco Boo & have featured  them on my blog in the past. It’s really nice to see two lovely girls do so well, especially in my hometown where the highstreet is pretty much non existent anymore. It really is nice to see the Coco Boo girls leading the way for other boutiques out there & proving that you don’t have to be all corporate & expensive to run a successful business! If you can’t make it down to Preston to visit the shop, don’t fret, these girls have it covered, you can shop online with them right here>link.

After our trip to Retro Rehab (yet another amazing little vintage boutique (check them out here>link) we headed to Primark to pop Lindsey’s Primark cherry (first blogger/person/living being  I have ever met that hasn’t entered the Aladdin's cave of treasures that is Primark! :O) & unfortunately though, to put it bluntly, it.was.shit ahahhahaha sorry Lindsey, we will have to go again on a better day (‘: We then headed to Strictly Cupcakes, a cute (& very reasonably priced) little vintage esque tea room for said cupcakes & a brew before saying our goodbyes & heading home.

Thank you so much again Claire, you did an amazing job! (We deffo need to meet up again soon!) & lovely readers, do make sure you check out these ladies blogs if you are looking for some new reads, they are all bomb diggy!

  13. Didn't know you were from Preston?! I used to visit the Fishergate shopping centre often, I used to live in Blackburn and our shoping centre was horrendous, ha!

    Love, love LOVE the all the photos. Glad you had a lovely time. I've never been to a blogger meet up before in Manchester although I hear about about them after it's passed! DARN!
