Things I Love Thursday // Best Bristol Bloggers and Blog Club

This week has been such a great inspiring and productive week. I have met the best Bristol bloggers at blog club and I have exciting news regarding the Weird and Wonderful Wedding World.

Bristol Blog Club is a place for local bloggers to go and meet like minded people, eat cake and pizza (in no particular order!) and get tips and advice on all things blog related. This month it was held at Trunki HQ which is hands down the most colourful and fun office I have ever been to! Er, they even have a SLIDE from the top, down to the first floor – EPIC!

Things I Love Thursday

Attending #blogclub and meeting some fellow Bristol bloggers, a few I have met before, some who I have connected with on Twitter previously and some new faces who I am excited to build Bristol blogging networks and a community with in the future. She and Hem, Lily Doughball, Briar Rose Blog, Ship Shape Bristol Fashion, Being Little, Bounjour Blogger, Tigerlillyquinn, Black Heart Creatives and Saints on a Plane to name but a few.

Testing out the huge yellow slide at Trunki HQ, I wish I had a slide from my bed to my shed! Huge thanks to Trunki for letting us all have a play!

Selling my first business!!! At the age of 27 I have sold my first business. The Weird and Wonderful Wedding World was a venture that I started with Ali of Bristol Vintage when I first moved to Bristol, which I took through in to its second year on my own. The alternative wedding fair was a concept new to Bristol and one which I was extremely passionate about. But since the launch of Mermaid Gossip, and the growth of Fishee Designs Photo Booth, I just don’t feel like I am able to give it the time and dedication it needs for a third year. I also didn’t want it to cease to exist at all, after building a popular and successful concept. I am so pleased and proud to announce that good friend and fellow wedding industry entrepreneur, Grace Kingsley has taken the reigns for 2015. I know I have passed it on to someone with the brains and balls to achieve the best for the fair and I wish her all the luck, I am sure I will still be involved in some way, hopefully as a dedicated exhibitor!

Having my nails done at Kaycie’s and getting my glitter back on!

Having a huge sort out of the house due to getting a lodger in a few weeks. My entire inside office has moved to the back bedroom, so I had a sort out of all the things I have been hoarding for two years and I can’t believe how much useless stuff I have kept!

Getting a place at Bristol Fashion Week AW14 at Cribbs Mall live blogging event on Friday night. So much Bristol blog stuff this week, I have such good vibes for the future of my blog, it’s exciting times!
