Bloggers Meet Up


 thank u

As you know, the event was supposed to take place  at 4pm in Dakota on South William Street,Dublin. However, when I arrived with event planner Christelle Matonto, the manager told us that he knew nothing about our event at all (words can’t explain how I felt when I heard that) apparently the person dealing with Sales & Marketing didn’t communicate anything to him at all so we were basically sitting there with all our load, ready for an event  and no venue at all (it was horrific!) 

He said the closest time he could give us to set the place up was 3:45 but even then he couldn’t guarantee us the area we had left a deposit for 5 weeks prior to the date – disgraceful

The place was packed so we couldn’t really have the event anywhere there.

I left Dakota thinking it would be a nightmare trying to look for a venue as I didn’t know who was going to take us in at such short notice…..

Luckily for us, the staff in Lost Society were kind enough to take us in with all our load so we had time to set the place up before everyone arrived. They actually saved us , I really can’t thank them enough.

They had a great little place for us and everything, it was perfect! (much better than Dakota)

Moving on to the fun stuff……

Despite our little hiccup with the venue I think the evening turned out quite well. The place was decorated with coconut water (I felt like we had a years supply of that) and aloe vera water as well(absolutely hooked on that stuff now!)  I’m so grateful Mark from Koh Coconut was able to provide us with everything.


There were 17 of us, which meant that everyone was able to get a goodie bag provided by Cloud 10 beauty. Each bag had four beauty products, a mini mirror and a  €5 voucher to use on

They also had a mud mask from Anatomicals, a voucher for a free mini facial in the Buff Day Spa, a sign up from Boots and one free raffle strip.

Giovanna from Cloud 10 Beauty was the first guest speaker. She shared with us some fabulous beauty products from their site,one of which was a real techniques brush set available only from Cloud 10 beauty. They even offered us a set to use as a spot prize (too kind!)

Next up was Aoibhe Devlin from The Secret Obsession. All I can say is –  WOW. Her talk blew everyone away. Aoibhe didn’t hold back on anything at all: she was honest, funny and really well spoken. Her advice yesterday was just invaluable to me, delighted she was there. Thanks again chick!

Through out the evening, everyone had lovely cheesecake bites provided by Cheesecake Dublin on South William Street. We had vanilla flavor and nutella as well, they were both amazing and staff in Cheesecake Dublin are just so kind!


Raffle winners!!

Elisha from Always Time for Tea won the Real Techniques brush set – lucky her! and Marlene from Everything Coco Chanel won the voucher for an hour session on any treatment in Buff Day Spa (very kind offer!)

All in all, I thought everything  turned out well in the end, I mean who knew it was possible to find a venue at such short notice!
