So, last week I took a day off of work to do something that turned out to be a whole load of fun….I went on a ‘Bloggers Day Out!’. This actually coincided, quite by chance, with a wonderful course that I have started on-line called Blogging Your Way, with Décor8….but more about that another time.
I was invited along to this day by my good friend Tania, from Freckleface. I’ve known Tania for several years now. Believe it or not we met on a rugby pitch (yes, we were playing rugby, but no it wasn’t full contact, it was touch rugby), and since then have remained friends. Tania is a very talented designer, amongst other things…she is also another Multi-passionate (MP) bod! I will definitely be telling you more about Tania, but for now all you need to know is that it was she, who invited me on this fine trip, and what could I do other than say a big fat yes to something that sounded such fun.
I had the pleasure of meeting another 3 lovely women whom I had not met but had seen in previous blog posts via Tania’s website. It felt like I was meeting famous people which was rather funny. I met Vix from Vintage Vixen. There was also Curtise from So Past Caring and Annie from Irritable Owl. I can honestly say that I had a blast! It was so wonderful to meet people that you had not met before and spend, what turned out to be, about 8 hours, laughing, talking, sharing, shopping, eating, drinking, oh….and did I mention laughing?
All of these women were genuinely warm, funny and boy could they shop! I felt quite tired at the end of the day, but also content and so pleased that I had had the opportunity to meet such lovely women. I do hope that you will take time to click on the links here and take a look at their lovely blogs. You’ll see how multi-passionate they all are….amazing!
You’ll also get to see some of the fab purchases made on the day. I’m kicking myself a little for not buying a shiny little green vintage number from Backlash. Anyway, if that wasn’t enough, I’d now like to invite you into the madness that was the day with a short video of some of the things we got up to. Enjoy!
