ifabbo Conference 2012

20:09

iFabbo - International Fashion & Beauty Bloggers Organization

On Saturday I got up at 4am to make myself look half decent to leave my house for 5 am.

As usual my plans went awry. I broke the zip on my bag, ran for the train & got there just in time after nearly skidding on someone’s left over milkshake. Hmm not the best start in the world but I was happy.

Why?

I was leaving Cardiff to attend the 1st UK iFabbo Conference at the swanky Kettners in London.


The event was a conference to help bloggers like myself learn how to optimise our presence online & learn how to communicate with brands.

I arrived at Kettners a little early but after 5 minutes a throng of fellow beauty & lifestyle bloggers descended on the place all sharing blog names, real names & twitter identities.

After checking in with our hosts we could not contain ourselves when we received our goodie bags!!!

iFabbo UK Convention Goodie Bags!!
L-R Hydroxatone, Konjac, Beautisol, Sarah McNamara, Nazilla, Nelly.Com & Let's Go Lashes
They were amazing,  featuring products from Hydroxatone,  Konjac, Beautisol, Sarah McNamara, Nazilla, Nelly.com & Lets Go Lashes & worth approximately £250. Zowiee!!

All of these products will be getting a review over the next few weeks so hold onto your wallets as its gonna be empty very very soon!

Ladies, Write Everything She Says!!!

The conference was jam packed with guest speakers which included professional bloggers, photographers, social media experts & some brands leaders.



The guest speakers were amazing & the wisdom that they shared will definitely help me to be a better blogger.

It was not all work & no play, a glorious lunch was laid on by Kettners.

The lunch featured proper ladies-who-lunch style sandwiches – uber posh sarnies with no crusts & to-die-for desserts.



The day ended with a fantastic cocktail hour & a chance to mingle & swap those oh-so-important business cards. The day was truly fabulous - iFabbo & Kettners certainly looked after us.  I picked up loads of tips & tricks & met some fantastic bloggers & brands that I hope will turn into real friends.

After the conference ended I felt really elated, so of course there was only one thing to do before heading back to glorious Wales.
