Hi everyone! I had the opportunity to attend the Cape Town Mom Blogger Meet on Saturday and it was so awesome. Cindy from 3 Kids 2 Dogs 1 Old House organized this meetup for us. She also organized the CT Blogger Meetup which I wrote about here. She really seems to have a knack for this kind of thing because I really enjoyed both events. This time the event was hosted at Graze in Kenilworth. Graze is a small restaurant, a perfect setting for the 20 mommy bloggers to gather at. It is very much out of my driving comfort zone, but my GPS took me there with little hassle.
We sat down to a lovely meal. I ordered a banana and oatmeal smoothie as a starter:
And the most delicious main! I forgot to take a photo of it, so I grabbed someone else’s picture from Instagram. Here are pics of the main I chose and the chefs working hard to prepare food for all the hungry mommies:
Delicious grilled ham and cheese with a mushroom sauce and a poached egg on top with a small side salad. The bread was so crunchy and the flavours worked so well together. It was out of this world. I really enjoyed it. A fellow blogger, who also works in the social media world in her everyday life gave a talk giving us some advice on how to get the best out of our blogs. Nikki really shed some light on a few things for me and answered questions I had. It was comforting to know that I’m already doing a few things right with regards to my blog and it was good to learn new things which can help me improve 🙂 Here is a picture of Nikki explaining some SEO stuff to us:
After the talk and food we all mingled for a while before returning to our families. We were very lucky to have some amazing sponsors. We got so many cool and useful goodies. Here is a picture of the contents of our goodie bags:
How awesome is this?! Each kid got a pair of jeans, a top and a body warmer with a hoodie. We also got a voucher to spend on Mr. Price’s website! I’ve had an amazing experience with Mr Price’s online shop before, so was pleased to be able to use this channel again. I’m just waiting for them to get in some winter stock so I can sort my kiddos out with some winter pyjamas which they are in dire need of for the upcoming season 🙂
It was so nice to catch up with some of the bloggers I have met before and to meet some new ones. I can’t wait for the next event!
Once again Cindy managed to procure fantastic sponsors. We were utterly spoiled!
