Edinburgh Bloggers Afternoon Tea

Last Sunday we made it along to the first ever Edinburgh Bloggers Meet, hosted by Farah from Faz Fashion Diary, Emily from Frankly Ms Shankly and Sultana from Dream to Inspire.
The girls put together a warm wee gathering in the form of a tea party at The Rose Hip to introduce us all. Many didn't realise there were quite so many of us around! The Edinburgh Blogger girls put together a handy list here so that we could all meet and greet and swap ideas and tips. We already knew a couple of the bloggers there but with nearly thirty of us enjoying the cake and coffee, it was great to put names to faces. Tiny's Fashion (below) is our blogger crush online and babe in real life! We also bumped into our Etsy Craft buddy Alley Hope (2nd below). What we really enjoyed was the variety of bloggers. As well as style bloggers like ourselves, there were lifestyle, food and travel lovers.

We decided to co-ordinate as any fine blogging duo should (outfit details next week!) in matching Coco Fennel X Karen Mabon dresses and our new(ish) bobs. It made us instantly recognizable as the weird friend-couple we are...

We just love a goody bag! These included a lot of bits and bobs from local places including the Filling Station.There was also a charity raffle for Macmillan Cancer, which boasted plenty of prizes but we didn't win any. We had our eye on that Miss Dixiebelle voucher!

Although we are only just dipping our toe into blogging events, we enjoyed this a lot. We met some friendly people and our faces were aching from laughing so much. In the end we went home, full of delicious cake, to put pyjamas on and veg in front of Netflix. A sign of a good afternoon!
