Our little get together (ok big get together as we were 28 ladies) was kicked off by a welcome and break down of the morning’s activities by Johlet herself. We then had a motivational talk by the awe-inspiring Sue Levy from Just Pursue It. She brought up some very good points about how blogging is for you and no one else and how we has bloggers should support one another and not bring one another down.
After Sue’s speech it was time to order and oh boy was there some delicious options on the menu. This made my already indecisive mind even more indecisive. Thank goodness for patient and oh so helpful waiters, otherwise I think I would still be deciding (ok not really but you get the idea on how good the choices were). Once brunch was done we got down to mingling, mingling and some more mingling. It was so nice to be able to put faces and voices to so many of the blogs I love and admire, and to hear how people really like my posts. It’s always so reassuring to hear you’re actually blogging about stuff that people enjoy and find funny (I’m referring to those Friday Funnies).
The cherry on the cake was of course the goodie bags we received. In the weeks leading up to the event Johlet had been tweeting about how surprised and thrilled we would all be about these goodie bags, but oh my goodness nothing could have prepared me for just how much of a goodie bag (more like bags) there would be. We were absolutely spoilt rotten. I’m having a problem packing it all away at home, not that I’m complaining...at all!
Once and again a huge thank you to Johlet for inviting me and organising such a wonderful event. I loved meeting each and every single one of the ladies. Hopefully there will be another meet up sometime soon. Thank you also to Zoya Africa for the beautiful manicures we got on the day.
Another big thank you must go to all of the very generous sponsors:
