On Saturday (28 February) I was excited to attend my very first Mommy Blogger Meetup it was held at a lovely venue inside the Free Range Lifestyle Centre, called the Olive Branch Cooking School, in Fourways.
It was a lovely day of meeting fellow bloggers and interacting with some amazing brands, sponsored the event; it was hosted by 2 amazing bloggers Heather Step blog: One step at a time and Laura Le Roux from the blog Harassed Mom. The bloggers who attended were all women juggling many demands children, careers, home management, educating their children and changes to their lives while at the same time still all sharing a little bit of themselves with the world through their blogs. I certainly have new blogs that I will be following from now on.
Another high light of the session was the goodie bags, was these amazing Goodie Bags with stationary sponsored by Gumtree, who knew they did strationery
Besides the opportunity to meet interesting bloggers, there was also the chance to listen to some great speakers on nutrition and to go through a cooking demonstration on easy to make meals that you can do with your children given Margy Vally of The Olive Branch Cookery School
It certainly was a great event and I am looking forward to the next one in April.
