Hello my gorgeous followers !
On Sunday 10th of April I attended the Elite Munster Blogger Event in the Absolute Hotel Limerick. I travelled up with my two friends and fellow #Cloggers, that’s a slang name we use for Cork Bloggers. The lovely Claire from LipGlossAddictCork & behind the wheel was the fab Joyce from MakeMeUpMua. We had such fun on the journey up. But I must admit that Google Maps was not being co – operative on the day, we had some choice words for it. We arrived in plenty of time and had a cuppa & the chats with some fellow bloggers before the Event started. There were Trade stands which included Debenhams, The Body Shop,Mane ‘n Tail, Cailyn Ireland, Stella & Dot and Meaghers Pharmacy. After browsing the stands we took our seats. There was a seating plan so you had to sit where your name was which was great to get to know other bloggers. Below is a list of sponsors which contributed to the amazing Goodie bags.
Catriona Brennan from Revolve PR spoke about what PR companies like to see, tips on interaction between bloggers and PR companies, how important it is to build a media kit, and what not to do when looking for samples or collaborations. I really enjoyed Catrionas presentation.
Kerry Manning who writes the blog Fabulicious Fifty and is also a Business Coach and Marketing Strategist spoke about why we blog, having a clear vision and goal, building your brand, and the importance of researching topics. I have been following Kerry for a while now so it was great to meet her and she is such a wonderful lady I could chat with her all day.
David Cohen from Feel Good Fitness spoke about his journey and all things health and fitness.
We had a break for lunch and afterwards Micheal from Educated Machine spoke on WordPress. I was particularly interested in his presentation and learnt loads. I’m so looking forward to the WordPress Workshop which is coming to Cork soon for #Cloggers. Emer from Debenhams spoke about the free Personal Shopper service available in store and she showed us some fabulous items from this seasons S/S collection. Finally we had the lovely Gillian Whelan from Meaghers Pharmacy who did a demo of the much sought after Style Pro , and it really does the job. It was a great day and I really enjoyed meeting old blogger friends & new bloggers. Thanks to Stephney and Erin for organising such a great day. It is such a huge undertaking organising these events and they did a fantastic job. I look forward to the next one.
Here are some photos of products we received in our Goodie bags. We also got a fab Gift box from Meaghers and I did a separate blog post for that here
Until next time,
Love Marie XxX
