Well, hello there! and how are you doing this week? It has been a bit of a slog over the last few weeks for us with the weather and just time! Where do the days go I want to know! I thought that all this extra daylight should help make it feel like there are extra hours in the day, not so much!
Anyway, that’s not really what we are here to talk about, what we wanted to chat about was the NOW Blog Conference coming the way for everyone north of Watford Gap! ha ha. The Lovely Nicolette from Archie and the Rug and Kimberley from Swoon Worthy with their team of helpers are bringing the wonderful world of blog conferences to all those up North and anyone else who fancies trying out somewhere different to London.
The Venue chosen for the weekend is Victoria Baths in Manchester which is just up the road from the Whitworth Art Gallery – I think I might well find myself there at some point in the weekend! As if I need any more art gallery in my life! ha ha. The venue is beautiful, full of Victorian features and green tiles – I do love tiles. Also, I am super into going to give Manchester all the love after what happened a few weeks ago.
But enough about the interior stuff, what you really want to know is who is going to be speaking! Well, just this little lot that’s who: Sophie Robinson – TV personality & Interior Designer, Emma Chapman and Trey George from A Beautiful Mess – as if you don’t know who they are! Igor & Judith from Urban Jungle Bloggers – bloggers and friends who just love plants, Carole Poirot – a Stylist and Photographer and finally but by no means least, Jen Stanbrook – a blogger and Pinterest expert. Phew! that should keep us going for a couple of days.
Alongside this, there will be brands to meet, workshops to try out and of course lots of other creative bloggers to chat to. So a full on Friday to Sunday plan! Maybe that trip to the Whitworth will have to wait till the Monday!
We are really excited to be going to the event, with our trusty notebooks and planners in hand. We are also planning to take some secret new things with us, so watch out for announcements on those. We can’t wait to hear what advice and passion we can gleam from other people to enthuse us to make our 6th year of blogging this year into more and more years.
You can pick up tickets for the event over on the NOW Blog Conference Website, which there are still some Early bird tickets left for £90 for the whole weekend! oh yes!
Let us know if you are going to be there, so we can say hello!
Disclaimer: We have been given free tickets to this event and been asked to publisise it, but have not been asked to write anything we do not feel that is true to what we know. We are really looking forward to this event and will write an honest and open review after the conference.
