The cool graffiti around Southgate
When I first started blogging about two years ago I scoured the internet for any Melbourne blogger meet-ups hoping to find like minded gals (and guys) who could pass on some friendly advice and to have other people to talk to and bounce ideas off of so I could finally stop boring the shit out of my friends! Alas, I couldn’t find a thing and I was so disheartened thinking I was the only blogger in Melbourne (hahaha far from it it seems!). All that changed last Sunday when I finally attended my first blogger event WOOHOO!
Our gorgeous hosts Nikita & Jasmine
The girls from Bloggers United, Nikita and Jasmine, did a great job hosting the inaugural Melbourne Meet-Up, bringing together 11 of the finest beauty, fashion, fitness, lifestyle (you name it!) bloggers Melbourne has to offer at P.J. O’Brien’s at Southgate. We spent three hours chatting about our frustrations with blogging, tips on how to contact PR agencies and playing fun games (and yes I was one of the lucky prize winners!).
I had no idea what to expect from the event as I’m never really good at networking and “selling my brand” but I truly came away both excited at meeting new friends as well as confident knowing that I now have a network of local bloggers I could ask for advice and workshop ideas with.
All the lovely new blogger pals I made!
Fun Instagram challenges

And we didn’t leave empty handed either! Nikita and Jasmine were able to score us all a goody bag from Waxaway, who sponsored our meet-up. We all received the fab products above! I personally am ecstatic for the tweezers and comb in one to tame my unruly brows – this is definitely a new staple in my handbag – thanks Waxaway!!
Winner, winner CHICKEN DINNER!
