Plymouth Blog Meet - Organising A Blogger Event | LittleEllieMae

After recently attending blogger events at Lush and Benefit in Plymouth, I started to realise that there were way more bloggers in this city than I had initially thought! I had gotten on so well with the bloggers I had already met; an idea of a meet up for all of Plymouth's bloggers sprung to mind. 

I remember texting Becca (who was a huge help in organising the event... she put up with my anxious texts and calls on a frequent basis- thanks Becca!) a few months ago proposing my idea of a Blogger event in Plymouth- the first place to host the event that came to mind was of course Rumpus Cosy. 

Rumpus Cosy is the cutest cafe/restaurant in Plymouth! Its a Pinterest- lover's heaven: full of kitsch china tea pots, indie fairy lights and amazingly comfy sofas! The staff at Rumpus Cosy were so lovely and helpful in organising this event and gave us excellent service for a fun evening! I couldn't recommend them enough! Check out their Facebook page here

We had a big table and all sat down for a few hours of tea, cake and chat! We had some yummy homemade carrot cake, baked by Rumpus Cosy and a selection of lovely teas! I had the Mao Feng Green Tea which was deliciously refreshing! 

I was kind of surprised at how well all of the bloggers got on! We all chatted non-stop like we had all known each other forever! It was so nice to talk to like-minded, friendly people about our shared interests. We have all stayed in touch too- I'm already planning the next meetup in my head! I can't wait to see everyone again.

To thank all of the bloggers who attended, I decided to make some goody bags. I had seen goody bags from other events and thought they were a great idea! The goody bags included fantastic products from a variety of companies including The Vintage Cosmetic Company, WaterWipes, Halo Wipes, Nanshy, JICA Beauty, Sweet Cecilys, Virtue Drinks. 

All of the bloggers seemed to love their personalised goody bags which is great!

Keep an eye out on mine and Becca's blogs for a chance to win one of these goody bags from #PlymouthBlogMeet very soon!

This is what I wore to the event- it was a lovely day so I opted for a summery look!

Our local newspaper, The Plymouth Herald, has published an article about the event and a bit about my blog if you'd like to check that out too: http://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/Plymouth-student-passionate-blogging-organises/story-26396306-detail/story.html

Overall I think that the event was a huge success- I've had nothing but positive feedback! I cannot wait to organise the next one (after my exams!) 

Thanks to all of the lovely bloggers who attended the event and made it such an enjoyable experience! It was so nice to get to know you all!
Also a big thanks to Becca for all her help and support, Rumpus Cosy for hosting our event, Plymouth Herald for covering the event and all of the companies involved in making up the goody bags. 

Have a great day!

  1. This looks like so much fun! I'm a Plymouth based blogger too. It's so cool to know there are more people around doing similar things. I think it's easy to feel like you're the only one in places like Plymouth where there's loads happening but not necessarily everyone knows about it. I love Rumpus Cosy, they do such a great range of teas and loads of great events. I definitely want to do some more blogs about independent businesses in Plymouth, raise their profile a bit!
