Cam Blog Meet Part I

Cam Blog MeetCam Blog Meet

This weekend was the inaugural Cam Blog Meet! After a couple of weeks of excitement, the day had finally arrived to meet with some fellow Cambridge Bloggers and some from further afield.

Planning began a few weeks back with a secret goody bag organised for each attendee. Putting these together was so much fun! Cam Blog Meet

Co-hosts Rachel, Stacie and Harriet travelled from Southampton, Bedfordshire and Isle of Wight respectively, to spend a day in Cambridge, eating lunch, drinking cocktails, chatting blogs and being tourists. Days before were filled with texts and tweets of excitement and travel plans.

The goody bags were filled with some fantastic items, all perfect for the creative blogger!

I’d like to thank the following brands and companies for supporting the event!

Crafty Creatives , Homemaker Magazine,,, Graze, Tea Pigs, Dex Diva, The Sheep Shop, Stacie Swift Illustration, Ohnorachio, Harriet Gray, Lush Cambridge and Ta Bouche bar.

Attendees also received a little treat from the Claireabellemakes shop in their bags 🙂

Despite the long journeys for some, the day went well with lots of chatter and networking. People shared their blog photography tips (balanced on a chair on one leg anyone?!) and even workout tips – who is doing the 30 Day Shred now on Rachel’s advice?!!
