WOW what an insanely hectic but magnificent weekend!
As all of you know I've been busy organising a Joburg Blogger Meet Up (#JHBbloggermeetup) Brunch for the last 2 months, if not longer. I found the perfect venue and invites was sent out...now I felt guilty because the ladies will be paying but I cannot give back. So I got to work and started finding sponsors for some goody bags. Now don't get me wrong. I was expecting goody bags the size of a shoe box if I'm lucky. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to get this huge amount of love and support from all the sponsors and the ladies ended up going home with goody bags worth approximately R4000 each!!! After all the hard work it definitely paid off.
We all met up at Vovo Telo Parkhurst for a brunch where Jonathon and his amazing team (who helped me carry boxes full of products and setting up the table) looked after us the whole morning! Thank you so much you guys! I was extremely impressed with the hands on service and friendly faces! I can only say good things about Vovo Telo! *give yourselves a pat on the back please*
|Thank you for all the beautiful comments and feedback!!!|

We had stunning platters (Thank you Jonathon!) and a wide variety of breakfasts to choose from and I was blown away with how good all the food looked! Mine tasted heavenly perfect. I will be back for more! Trust me!
We had over 30 sponsors and we will be doing reviews on all the amazing products that they have sent us! I cannot say thank you enough to all of you! Without you this day would have not been a success! Bless your hearts! I won't thank each of you now as I might just kill myself if I forget one. So you guys will have to wait to see the reviews. hehe
I loved meeting each and every one of the bloggers that was there! And I hope that out of this I will build forever lasting friendships! I loved watching all the ladies getting along like a house of fire. That's what blogging is all about. Supporting each other and standing by each other! The ever so lovely Sue Levy motivated us and sent across a strong message and all of us have a whole new perspective on blogging. Remember, all of us blog and we need each other to stand tall and strong. Don't compete, rather build one another! We can only go up from here!
