Event Diary: The Irish Blogger Conference

Hi everyone!

Exciting last few days! Yesterday was my birthday and the day before I attended the Irish Blogger Conference organised by Emma O’Farrell and Fiona Cooke.1428587287939The first event back in November was amazing, read about that here, and this year’s was no exception!

The hype seriously grew since then and the event had to be held in the Radisson Blu Hotel instead of the smaller and previously used Spencer Hotel. They even got Dj and comedian, Marcus O’Laoire to MC! He was hilarious by the way and had us all in a giddy mood for the rest of the day, especially us back in the “brow”. That’s the back row for all of you. ?

I was really excited as this year’s event has a best dressed competition and the fab duo that is Holly Shortfall (Illustrator) and Jamie Tuohy (Writer). Unfortunately, I didn’t win but I was still very pleased with my effort!

To be honest, I was the most excited about catching up with everyone! Well and the speakers of course! The line up was amazing and included the uber cool Timi Ogunyemi, Joanne Larby, Holly Kate White, The Gym Bunny and many more!

After the conference an after party was held in 10 Stephen’s Green, which I really enjoyed! I’d never been there before but I’ll definitely be back! It’s such a cozy and intimate bar with the most incredible decor! Love it!

We all got a fantastic goodie bag to bring home that was worth €80! My favourites were definitely the Physicians Formula and Fuschia make up! I’ve been trying out the PF products since I got them and I must say, I really like them!
