#PartyAtTheAngel

Well on Sunday I went to my first blogger event!! It was being held in Cardiff which is a 4 hour drive for me but I was determined to make it to at least one event this year! I left the girlies with their Dadi and headed for a pure selfish ME day!

I set off at around 8am and after a couple of pit stops – including taking a selfie and taking a photo of my beautiful Moelwyns – I arrived in Cardiff at 12.30pm. I parked up at The Angel Hotel and went in to get changed. I didn’t travel down in my outfit because it would’ve been real uncomfrotable to wear it all day and night!

I then wandered around town and met up with Leanne (A Slice of My Life Wales), Vikki (Planet Vikki) and Michelle (Sparkle Star Cupcake) and then we all walked to The Angel. We were greeted by the lovely Ffion (A South Wales Blog) and posed for photos. There were a number of brands present including Helfa Ddillad, Just Cuts, PAD Deco and Welsh Girl Problems. Unfortunately I didn’t take many photos so don’t have any to share! Other brands had contributed to the goodie bag including Bee Good, Praire Charms, Scent City and Beauty Crowd Cardiff. Hanne from Beauty Crowd Cardiff made an appearance and did a little presentation about what items were in the goodie bag. If truth be told she was speaking a language I did not understand (makeup!) but she was fun and engaging that it was quite enjoyable to listen to her. PartyAtTheAngel Cake After that some of the brands left and we bloggers were left to mingle, eat canapes and drink some free prosecco (which of course I couldn’t so opted for the complimentary water instead). There was also some yummy cupcakes! VERY nice! Big thumbs up to whoever made those! There was a scrapbook and some creations were fantastic! I did my “bored ram” doodles which is an unfortunate name really since I wasn’t bored but the only time I doodle is when I’m bored and on hold with HMRC – which is how I came up with “bored ram” doodle!!

As always with netwroking events I didn’t mingle much which thinking about it now I’m like “why?!” I am actually really shy so hate introducing myself to people! I did get chatting to Charlotte & Beth (who has the best pink hair which I am super jealous of!)

There were a number of competitions including one for the best Tweet (which Leanne won and received some yummy chocolates), one for the outfit of the day and one for the best scrapbook drawing (which I still think Leanne should’ve won for her sperm balloon!). There was also a Photo Booth….

At around 5.45pm I left so I could start the long journey home. It took me 4 hours to get back so I was back around 10pm (after stopping for pancakes at Little Chef!). As you can see, it was a 357mile round trip but it was worth it to attend my first blogging event. Because I was so late home I didn’t get a chance to open the goodie bags so I’ll leave that for a separate post for now.

Aaaaaand I’m home!!!! #partyattheangel

All in all it was a pretty good day even though it was a tiring journey! 🙂 Worth it just to meet these fantastic ladies!

      I knew it was far but never knew it was that far!! Yeah the bored ram is something I developed whilst being on hold or at courses! He’s got a whole outfit normally with a tie and everything!!

      I wish there were more events around here as well! I’m going to a Liverpool event in November and that’s a two hour journey – but at least it’s not as far as Cardiff!

    […] was so pleased to have been kept in the loop about this event because Liverpool is so close to me (in comparison to Cardiff) – it took me between 1.5 – 2 hours to get there which was half the time and the whole […]
