#5viewbloggers Event

Hello lovelies,

I hope you are well. Late last month you may have seen the hashtag #5ViewBloggers floating around Twitter and Instagram, which all came about thanks to the lovely and highly organised Jess and Albertine . Who arranged the #5ViewBloggers event that was a relaxed and informal social networking event, which was held at the chic hidden gem,  5 View Bar (at the top of Waterstones Piccadilly).

The intimate event ran for a couple hours, in the late afternoon on a very British rainy day. So it was nice to seek solace, in the warmth of a comfortable bar surrounding by good company and lovely brands. I really do love smaller events as it is nice to get to know everyone in the room and not feel swamped by music or a sea of bodies. Also if you know me, you will know I love a good chat! ;)

All in all, I am glad I made it out to the event because as I write this post, I feel really reflective on my blogging journey. As when I first started blogging, I felt so included in the blogging community due to the fact that I regularly involved myself in all the blogging chats on Twitter and also interacting with others via Twitter and the comment section on blogs. However as time past and I started university, I found (inevitably) that I had less time to blog and also life got in the way. Which led to me going through a series of  blips, when I wanted to interact with bloggers but sometimes felt out of the loop. Which is why I am so glad that I am starting to get back into reading blogs, going to blogger meet-ups and not only making 'blogging friends' but actual friends. As it is always so nice to meet and talk to a person/people who you feel you can share a commonality with or who understands certain things; because even though it does not seem like it blogging and the craft of writing can be quite lonely. So it is nice to know you have people you know you can reach out to, if need be.

Thanks for the goodies! 

Congrats Jess and Albertine, you did a great job on your first blogging event together!

Until next time lovelies,
