The ITWBN February meet up-Part 1: venue and speakers

10:58 AM

Hello lovelies and first off sorry for the bit of a break I had taken there-I haven't been feeling very well.... Today I'm throwing it back to an ITWBN meet up!! #ealthrowbackthursday

Back in February we headed to the Radisson SAS hotel in Galway and were welcomed by a lovely pink reception manned by friendly staff who were offering refreshments before we were whisked into the event room. It was great to see some familiar faces and also lots of new ones.

We were shown where our seats were and there on our seats were some jam PACKED goody bags and our name badges. Also there were treats in the middle of the table-like chocolate covered strawberries, sweets..... 

First up the lovely Saibh let us know that unfortunately Sinead wouldn't be able to make it to the event as her grandmother had passed away. We were all saddened to hear the news and sorry that Sinead wouldn't get to enjoy the fruits of her labour.

Saibh took over the proceedings and did and excellent job!! 

So.... Onto the speakers: Maricka Burke from OMiG HERE was up first to tell us all about SEO and some Google features that I personally hadn't heard of before but have looked into since.

Next was Siobhán from letzmakeup who is one of Ireland's top YouTube make up artists! It was very cool to hear from her and to see how she has made a living thru her YouTube channel.... I was well impressed and you can subscribe to her lovely channel HERE

Then came lunch time and the lovely peeps at the Radisson did not disappoint-we were treated to delicious mini burgers, chips, mini spring rolls, cocktail sausages, chicken goujons and believe me when I say they were all soooooooo good!!! 

Then we had a quick intro from Richard about his exciting new business beautifi.com where you can now book all you hair and beauty appointments online.

The always charming Galway Player then gave us a Twitter lesson we will not forget.... He also has started up an Instagram account which also focuses on men's fashion and lifestyle you should check that out-his username is galwayplayer  #savethepuppy

Last but by no means least was the fabulous Kate from Cocoa brown HERE-telling us about her job and also about the blogger/companies relationship and how to go about dealing with companies which was great to hear from a companies point of view.

I am going to do another post soon with all the deets about the pop up shops that were there on the day too... There's just too much to cram into this one post!!

The goody bag was UNREAL and I'm going to break it down over a few posts with Aggie as each product is post worthy :) also I'm sending some over to Emily so she can join in the fun, 

We have just booked our tickets for the next meet up in May and it sounds like another not to be missed day out,

Counting down the days already,
