Last Saturday, I headed to Leeds for Icelolly.com’s third Blog At The Beach. The event’s theme was a tropical Christmas party and it was a day jam-packed with guest speakers, helpful tips, blogger friends and of course, mulled wine.
After welcome drinks and meeting new friends, we sat down for our first talk from Elizabeth (Rosalilium) who gave us an insight to Pinterest and how to use the platform in blogging. Next up was Judith Lewis, who taught us about SEO. Armed with free chocolate, she answered so many questions that we’ve all been wondering. Last but not least, Sabina from Girl vs Globe let us into some of the best Instagram tips and tricks.
During the breaks between talks, we were treated to a delicious buffet lunch. The fun continued as were set a mission to complete 12 different challenges set by the icelolly.com team to be in with the chance of winning a city break to Barcelona or a Go Pro. The challenges were so much fun and included face swapping and taking ‘elfies’ in the pop up photo booth!
It was so lovely to get to know the icelolly.com team and meet new bloggers. After the talks and saying goodbye, I unfortunately had to rush off to make my train. The rest headed to The Alchemist for a couple of festive drinks and I’m gutted I missed it…next time I’ll make sure I stay over!!!
I’m so grateful to icelolly.com for having me along. It truly started the festive season in style and I’m already counting down until next year’s Blog At The Beach.
