Midlands Blogger Meet : 23-24th July

Photos: Top - weheartit, Bottom - my own (Colorsplash)

At last, Fritha and I have set a date, and beware Birmingham, there will be a posse of bloggers let loose in the Midlands for a wonderful weekend of fun, food and of course fashion, on the 23rd-24th July.

It's been a long time my lovelies, and there are SO many of you I just cannot wait to meet in the flesh! All the tweets and emails flying around over the past couple of weeks are finally cemented into a city and a weekend idea, so we wanted to put to you the ideas of what we're thinking the meet will consist of.

The Initial Plan (important, please read!):
On the cards there is the possibility of an afternoon shopping, be it in the popular city centre and Bull ring, or in the vintage and second hand region of Digbeth. Though we all more than likely have different shopping tastes, we'll all need some grub at the end of a physically strenuous afternoon hitting the shops. We envisage that the best way to get to know people is sat down having a good old chin wag over a tasty meal. After lining the stomachs, there is a possibility of hitting some bars and clubs depending on what people want to do, and then hangover breakfast and departing with fond farewells on the Sunday. Birmingham is dead easy to get to if you're within the Midlands region, and with a railcard tickets and times can be very flexible depending on which routes you want to take.

Initially, Fritha and I just would like to get an idea of who is genuinely interested in this meet up. If the weekend-event does indeed sound promising, it'll be your own responsibility to find another attendee to room up with (on the other hand, if any of you have a spare uni flat/house you fancy offering to a load of us, pipe up! ha!). Etap hotal (click to link) is a reputable and fairly cheap city centre hotel which is within 10 minutes walk from the train station, so I suggest if hotel is the only option, this would be a great place to stay.

That's about all we've got at the moment folks! Obviously plans will change and ideas will surface, but for now all we'd really like to know is if you guys are genuinely up for it. Keep the weekend free just in case, and if you do have an idea of anyone in particular you'd like to share with, get chatting to them.

Oh and make sure you follow myself and Fritha on twitter, just to stay up to date.

HOW exciting!! xox

EDIT : Had a query about if you wanted to come and were underage (under 18), that's fine! What I'd probably suggest is come for the day on the Saturday, but of course :)

  20. Oooh it sounds good!
    I work on a Saturday but only in term time so I hope I should be done by then *fingers crossed* I'll find out what the end of term performance date is.
    I wouldn't be going out in the evening though (19 but no ID, woe is me) so I'd just do the Saturday. :)
