On the day some great brands set up stalls for us to check out their products this included; the fabulous girls from Trnd Beauty, Stella & Dot, The Body Shop, Hazel's Nuts about Vintage (I bought two chokers from there for only €14), Ethical Souls Boutique, Provoc Makeup, Beautique Salon in Cork, and more.
The lovely Meaghers Pharmacy kindly chose me for best tweet of the day and I won a very generous hamper full of products to try. Did you see the products on my Snapchat? Photo: Erich Stack
And what's an event without an Instagram selfie station? We had such a ball taking pictures with it (I was extra excited because embarrassingly, I've always wanted a picture with one haha). Marie and Shell really paid attention to detail for this event! Photo: Erich Stack
Erick Stack was our photographer for the day which was such a bonus because he really captured the atmosphere of this event. You can find his Instagram here.

So what did we do exactly?

We had numerous speakers during the day, our first speaker was Niamh Sweeney from the derma-cosmeceutical brand, Nimue. It was so interesting learning about how this brand started and how only trained professionals can carry out beauty treatments using Nimue products. Niamh was so kind to give us a bottle of the Nimue SPF50 and 30 to try out.

Our second speaker was Naomi Sirmans owner of Mosaic Marketing, who taught us all about marketing strategies. we learned all about growing our following and getting engagement from our followers. Such an interesting talk!

Third was the beautiful Rosemary Mac Cabe! It was such a pleasure to listen to her career path up until now, she had us in stitches laughing. We also had the opportunity to have a Q&A with Rosemary and she also thought us about blog growth, a tip she had for us? Writing great content for your blog is key to gather engagement. You guys have to follow her on Snapchat because you'll fall in love with her! @rosemarymaccabe

Our last speaker was the lovely Lucie Pouilly from Lucie al Portraits, she is a self thought photographer who's mission is to make women feel beautiful and empowered through their beauty captured through her lens. She even gave us tips on getting great lighting for that perfect selfie!

The day ended with a small Fashion show, showcasing pieces from boutiques around Cork including Ethical Souls and Suzsa who attended the event. This was followed by a makeup demo by Inglot!

Overall I absolutely loved the Cloggers Blogger Event and I can't wait for their next one. As I said above, I met amazing ladies with the same love for blogging as myself. Marie and Shell did an amazing job, it ran so smoothly and I could feel the happiness of everyone in the room that day. Oh and I can't forget the amazing goodie-bags they put together for us!
