Getting Out There, What Happened To February?
January dragged. It was dark and rainy and then finally, it was February. I obviously blinked too many times as now it’ s March!
In February I decided it was time to show my creations to the world. My Mum and I took a table at the 4th #CloggersBloggersEvent– it was pretty nerve wrecking. What if the people I admire don’t get it? The fear of rejection and anxiety made for a tough journey.
Held in the Cork International Hotel, the day went so well. Guests such as Matte To Metallic and BRYT Skincare were great meet and they gave some amazing skincare and beauty tips! Its always fun to catch up with the girls and meet new bloggers and put faces and names to the blogs I love to follow.
The Cloggers Events are always a pleasure to attend and I shouldn’t have worried. Everyone was so nice and encouraging, I even sold some prints! That was exactly the boost I needed to charge ahead with some new plans and Products.
Another awesome event I attended was The EVB Edit and Cork’s very own Eimear Varian Barry Afternoon Tea at Electric.
What a venue, what a woman! It was a room full to the brim with amazing and inspiring women- not a bad word was spoken in the hours we were there. Listening to Eimear and Emer was like having a chat with your pals. So easy going and fun, my day was made by Aifric and Sarah-two ladies I’m glad to call friends now.
It’s amazing what I’ve experienced in the past year and half of blogging. Things I’d never have been brave enough to do I’m doing without thinking now. Prepare yourselves for endless InstaStories!
Between setting up this business, creating content, taking photos, organising social media posts and travelling- I found I wasn’t giving myself a minute to myself.
This month I am going to set aside an hour for myself a week, getting overloaded and stressed won’t help me in the long run. Positive thinking and meditations and possibly a hot stone massage.
So that was February, let’s hope March goes by a little slower!
