Last Sunday, 130 bloggers gathered in the amazing G Hotel in Galway for the Into the West Blogger Event.  To make this day extra special ITWBN were celebrating their 1st birthday!! You can tell alone from the numbers how great the group are doing, 20 bloggers met last year for the first time in the G hotel and a year later 130 arrived.


This was my first time attending and I am not going to lie, I was nervous. The theme of the event was glam and pink, I spent a majority of my time searching for the perfect outfit. In the end I picked up this dress in Zara in Tenerife, I was pretty concious of how low cut it was so I stuck a vest top under.  I also forgot to take a picture of my outfit so this picture was taken at home that night at 8.30pm after a combined journey of 5 hours on the bus.

I met a few other bloggers on the bus so that really helped.  We met other bloggers in the cream room in the hotel and then we went into the function room. We were greeted with cocktails and told what table we were at. We received amazing goodie bags, we were seriously spoilt by all the companies involved.

The event had a number of speakers including:

Blogger Sinead Burke from Mini Melange Blog talking about her blogging journey with a full time job and college.

Dee from Castle Print about branding and marketing.

Wayne Denner a youth motivational speaker about your online reputation.

Karen Brown from Karora Cosmetics who talked about how she is a co-founder of the brand and her inspirational journey so far.

The Galway Player and Aidan Tierney keeping us all entertained.

The talks were brilliant and gave us loads of information, help and loads of laughs!

The goodie bags had loads of brilliant products from a huge range of companies, can’t thank them enough for their generosity.  I will definitely be doing seperate blog posts on all the products very soon 🙂  I can’t wait for the next event to meet more of the bloggers!!

Apologies the blog isn’t as detailed as I had planned, I cut my right hand during the week so it is a little bit sore to type 😦
