Southampton Bloggers Meet

On 15th November, the day had finally arrived for the #SotonMeetUp, the second Southampton blog event organised by Amy and myself. It was held in Orange Rooms again, this time in the Lounge bar where we had extra space for our lovely companies and our very own bar woman, who was fabulous. From 1pm our 28 bloggers started to arrive, Weleda, Bee Good and Lush Southampton set up their stands for the afternoon and the cocktails began to flow.

Having our own bar area meant the afternoon was really relaxed, everyone could order food and drinks when they wanted and just chat to the other bloggers and companies. Later on in the afternoon we had a raffle where there were 15 prizes from some awesome brands such as Bodhi & Birch, Your Tea, The Balm, Boomf and Library of Fragrance. 

With the event being so close to Remembrance day we decided to give all the proceeds from the raffle to the Royal British Legion. Our wonderful South Coast bloggers raised £50 which Amy and myself have matched so the total going to them is £100!

It was an amazing day and it was so lovely to see so many bloggers attend. If you want to keep up to date on our future meet ups in Southampton please follow @sotonbloggers and make sure you're on the list for our Spring event!
