Into The West Blogger Network #itwbn Blogger Event!!

Into The West Blogger Network #itwbn
Blogger Event!!

Hi Guys! 

I hope you had a good weekend. As some of you know I was attending my very first blogger event - Into The West Blogger Network #itwbn. I would first like to begin this post by thanking Sinead Carroll from 'Yummy Mummy' http://www.yummymummy.eu.com/ and Saibh Egan from 'Wild Cosmia'  http://www.saibhegan.blogspot.ie/. Into The West Blogger Network was created my Sinead with the help from Saibh, the network was created for bloggers in Ireland to support, motivate and encourage each other. Last year the girls decided to organize 'blogger meet ups' every couple months throughout the year.




I attended my first event on Sunday, I was so nervous but excited as I didn't know what to expect. I first heard of Into The West Blogger Event last year before I started blogging but I always wished I could go to such a cool event. I was so delighted when Sandra from 'A Blushing Cailin' http://www.ablushingcailin.com/ contacted me about the event to see if I would like to go. 






The event was help in the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Galway in The Veranda Lounge http://www.radissonhotelgalway.com/, as soon as we arrived at the hotel the butterflies went away. Everyone was so welcoming and we were greeted with pink macaroons, girly cocktails, tea and coffee. The event began with Saibh welcoming us and thanking us for coming. There was five quest speakers who were all amazing and so informative! So thank you so much guys for all of your tips and tricks. You are all brilliant public speakers and are more talented then you even know. So thank you again for taking time out to share your secrets with us! The Speakers on the day were: 

Marika Burke - OMIG  http://www.galwaymarketing.ie/
Siobhan McDonnell - LetzMakeup http://www.letzmakeupblog.com/
Richie Spence - Beautifi.com http://beautifi.com/
The Galway Player http://thegalwayplayer.com/
Kate Kelly - Cocoa Brown http://www.cocoabrown.ie/ Pure Irish Sugar https://pureirishsugar.wordpress.com/ 





During the day we got a chance to chat and mingle with all the bloggers. It was so much fun, everyone was so welcoming and kind. During this time we were also given the chance to shop at the pop up shops. It was the perfect girly experience, with glitter, shape wear, jewelry, clothes, makeup, tan and fancy dress costumes. We took 100s of photos and had are own photo booth. We were also given huge goodie bags filled with amazing products, so expect a lot of reviews over the next few weeks! 






I loved every second of the day and I can't wait for May, when the next event will be on and I believe that the planning has already started! Eeek!




I just want to say a very big Thank You again to Sinead and Saibh not only for creating the network but also for setting up the meet ups, your hard work really paid off! So thank you again! I had the best day ever! It was so nice to meet you Saibh! And I look forward to meeting Sinead in May and from what I've heard I wont be disappointed! :) 








I really hope you enjoyed reading! 

Lots of Love
