This will be my last blog post before Christmas!! I am so excited for a few days off over the next couple of weeks and to catch up with family and friends. Also excited to stay in my PJs all day and stuff my face! If you do fancy getting out and about over the festive season however, I think that afternoon tea is a gorgeous way to spend a few hours, catching up with the girls.

A couple of weeks ago, I was joined by several other Limerick Bloggers for a festive afternoon tea experience at Limerick’s Castletroy Park Hotel. This is not a sponsored post in any way and we all paid our way but I was so impressed with my experience that I had to give them a mention. It was such a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon, catching up with a few of my favourite local bloggers and also meeting some new faces.

I had the task of organising the event and to be honest I just took it in my stride. It was more of a social event so there were no speakers or live demos as you may see at other blogger events. It was a great opportunity to learn what other people were doing and I managed to pick up lots of tips on the day just by chatting! As you can see, the spread we were treated to was fantastic. The food was delicious and the waiting staff even kindly boxed up our left overs for us to take away with us!

We also had some fantastic goodies for each blogger in attendance on the day. Brands such as; Fabuloss Tea, Glowing Girlies Boutique, The Porcelain Doll, Fox & Bow, Ziaja and The Body Shop sponsored the goodie bag content. We also had 2 fantastic prizes on the day. The prize for best dressed went to Ana from Red Lips Blue Jeans who won some fabulous goodies from Fox & Bow. I absolutely adored her outfit and though it had just the right amount of sparkle!

While I did have a few hiccups before and on the day I was really pleased with how it went and I think that the other bloggers enjoyed it too. Hopefully we will have another event in the new year and if you would like to join us then please reach out!
