This year I went to the Bloggers Meetup at #IWANTMYCOFFEE which was super duper amazing. I have never learnt as much as I did in this workshop. It was amazing and I am still in awe of it and everything that I have learnt.
Going to this was really something I wanted to go to and I am so blessed that I had a friend -Neli- who blessed me with a ticket because seriously, so esspensive lol.
I don’t think I can accurately put into words how I feel about this meetup lol. Having anxiety really puts me in a tough space when I am trying to network and meet new people so if you saw me there, please know I am not rude, just scared to talk to you!
I did meet a twin though! She’s so awesome and you should go and check her blog out as well as her social media! Her name is Asha and she’s cool.

The sponsors for this event were so awesome and have such a great ethos to them! We had sponsors like Rain South Africa as well as MUD, Dupe Factorie, Environ etc. They are so amazing and I am so excited use these products and review them in up coming blogs (remember to check my site 😉 )
The food was so Insta-worthy and healthy at the same time. I have such a thing to take pretty photos of food. Growing up with your mom being in catering, you just sort of become accustomed to be taking photos of food.
As the day wore on, there were competitions on social media and I managed to win two of the competitions (yay me!) I got a beautiful Rain gift as well as cute products from Forever Living Products.
Being at this meetup even inspired me to do my FIRST YouTube video and I spent the afternoon editing it. If I ever upload it, I will be sure to leave it on my social media 🙂
I think the main thing I took away from this meetup is to write for myself and fall in love with my blog. I also learnt that I should really try and step out of my comfort zone when it comes to meeting other bloggers in Durban and South Africa.
