Hey,

A few months ago I decided to create a Facebook group for Cork Bloggers my aim was to try bring more events to Cork as a lot of blogger events are in Dublin and due to work and travel a lot of the bloggers outside of Dublin miss out. Myself and Marie ( from the Beaut Mum) started to organise our first Cork Bloggers event straight away and we loved every minute of it. I really found a new passion in event organising it was so enjoyable. Our event was held on August 8th in the fab Perry Street Market Cafe I had been to this cafe a few times for food and loved it I also attended a Trilogy event here with Marie and we knew this would be perfect for our event as it was just ourselves in here so we felt very VIP 🙂

We had over 30 bloggers attend our event which was a huge turn out and we were delighted. Tracey from Bia Beauty gave a great talk about how she started Bia Beauty and gave us all a great insight into the amazing brand. Elizabeth Arden talked about their products and the new Oxygen Facial which we all cannot wait to try out. Nathan Adams aka Mr Cork talked to us about dealing with Social Media to ignore the haters and just be your self.
