Last week was a busy one. With more time on my hands now to get out and network I have found myself thrown into the blogging world, saying yes to invitations I would usually have declined.
Starting with a fun morning at Slam PR on Wednesday, celebrating Diono collaborating with Little Tikes on their new range of car and nursery accessories, I spent most of last week catching up with blogging friends and making some lovely new ones too.
Thursday commenced with a rooftop bloggers breakfast at The Boundary in Shoreditch thanks to the lovely people at Joolz, showcasing their new buggies in style. These lovely ladies sure knew how to make us feel welcome.
Sitting with Ruth on the terrace, sharing stories that would make you blush while looking over the East London skyline, I realised there and then that this new life I am cutting out for myself is pretty damn cool.
After a quick dash back to Essex for Scarlett’s open afternoon at school I was heading up to Chelsea to meet Katy on Kings Road in advance of our dinner with Tiny Me, an Australian personalised gift brand who have recently launched in the UK.
Dinner at No 11 Cadogan Gardens, how spoilt were we?
The food was wonderful, especially my Herb & Artichoke Cannelloni, and the company was perfect. Alongside my first proper catch up with Katy since we camped together at Camp Bestival, it was lovely to see Alison and Lilinha again and to meet Sophie, the most interesting lady who made me want to pack up my life and run off into the French countryside thanks to her stories. We also left with a £30 voucher to order and try out some products of our own, so I will be sure to let you know how I get on with that.
I can’t deny breakfast on a Shoreditch rooftop and then dinner in an exclusive Chelsea hotel wasn’t amazing. However what I found even more amazing was how being surrounded by such inspiring woman, such talented bloggers, has left me feeling. I am ready to take on the world, I WILL make a go of this, I WILL be published, I WILL make my little family proud.
So what did I learn from my week of buggies, bloggers and beautiful food? Surround yourself with amazing, talented, inspiring people and you’ll feel amazingly inspired to be talented yourself.
I can’t wait to see what next week brings.
