How to cope with your first Blogging Event!

I recently went to my first ever blogger event which Bloggers Love hosted at a bar/club called Kanaloa in London. It was from 4-8:30pm but I had to arrive around half 5 as I was going from work. I'm not usually shy about meeting new people and don't have a problem with making conversation, but I was so nervous that day! Walking into a room full of other bloggers seemed so daunting and Twitter suddenly seemed like such a better place to chat to other bloggers.

As I made my way there, I had to keep telling myself that this would be a good experience for me and that there's nothing to worry about and that it would be fine once I arrive.

And you know what? It was completely fine, more than fine, I loved it! I'm not going to lie, but walking into a room full of other people was definitely the hardest part of the night. But once I got talking to a lovely girl called Natalie, I felt a bit more at ease and started getting more into the flow of things.

There were lots of brands dotted around the space and they were all very approachable and very generous with giving their products away for us to try! I love how you can discover so many different brands by going to events like these.

My highlights were:

  • Obviously getting to meet other Bloggers after "meeting" them on Twitter
  • Getting to talk about skincare/beauty with so many like-minded people that were as excitable as I am about it! 
  • Receiving hair advice (and products!) from the Umberto Giannini team
  • Learning about new products on the market

If you are like me, and feel hesitant to go to your first Bloggers Event, I would definitely recommend to not think about it too much and just go! Life is too short to not get involved, and if it isn't for you, then at least you tried it. 

It was so lovely meeting Angie @chocandlipstick and Pao @paowong1

What were your first Blogger Event experiences like? Were you as nervous as I was?
