Manchester Bloggers Meet - 17/02/2014


On Monday I attended a lovely bloggers meet hosted by Georgie from Fairy Gob Mother. It took place in Font bar, Followfield which is on the outskirts of Manchester. Before the event I met up with Fran, Cat, Rachael and Rachael and we then made our way to Font together for the event. I always think it's nice to meet up with other bloggers before hand as it takes the edge off a little bit and helps relax me. If you're going to your first event and feel a little nervous about it I would suggest meeting up with others first or traveling together!

We got to Font for pretty much 7pm on the dot and thought it was a little odd that there didn't seem to be many people there. It didn't take us long to discover that there was actually two Font bars in the Manchester area and we were at the wrong one (Whoops!). So we jumped in a taxi and got taken to the right Font bar, haha! We finally arrived a little late but late is better than never! We also found out that a couple of others had made the same mistake which made us feel a little less silly! The bar had allowed Georgie to hire out the top floor with no fee which was absolutely amazing of them and meant that we had our own little private area for the meet. It was a lovely little meet with about 20 bloggers which gave us all a chance to properly talk to each other and was a lot less over whelming.

After we'd all got a drink (they do £2 cocktails btw!) and had a natter we played blogger style 'play your cards right' and there were a couple of prizes for the winner. We also had a little raffle to raise money for Manchester Animal Shelter and I ended up winning a facial at The 8th Day which I can't wait to have! After some more nattering and drinks @RonIsMagic performed a few of his card tricks and he was utterly amazing. He most certainly has the 'gift of the gab' and his tricks were fabulous! Whilst watching him I was trying to concentrate so hard on his hands to see what was going on but he is so truly talented that nothing was giving it away! His tricks were completely mind blowing and if anyone is genuinely magic, he is! I think it's fair to say we were all very much amazed!

To end the evening we were given goodie bags that contained goodies from The 8th Day, Lush and a huge bottle of Schwarzkopf hairspray. It was such a lovely, relaxed evening and I want to say a big Thank You to Georgie for hosting it!

  5. It sounds like such a good time! I I can't believe the cocktails were at such a good price, in London it's always from 5 pounds and up!

  6. I Love font, best place for cocktails in Manchester, food is a bit hit and miss as I got food poisoning once but so lovely! My flat was just around the corner from the one off of Oxford Road - I miss it BIG time!

    excuse me for a while
