On Saturday I travelled to meet some of the bloggers from my local area. You have probably seen us tweeting with the hashtag #EssexBloggers!
We held our first meet-up at the beginning of the year for a meal and drinks in Chelmsford, that was the first ever Essex blogger meet and since then we have pretty much all kept in contact!
On Saturday we visited Mare E Monti, which is a lovely little italian restaurant on Wickford High Street. The decor is gorgeous and it was quiet enough for us to all talk without feeling like we had to shout!
The best part, however, was that 2 courses were only £5.95 – a total bargain!
The food was really lovely; I started with a tomato bruschetta, followeded by a pepperoni pizza. I may have also been really naughty and had desert too – a chocolate fondant oozing with melted chocolate.
The girls were all really lovely and conversation flowed easily. We are a group of bloggers covering a vast array of topics – which makes for very interesting conversations!
Penny & I were the last ones left, still finishing our second bottle of wine, and after we headed out for a few more – meaning we didn’t feel so great on Sunday morning. Oops!
It’s really great to have built up a local group of people with similar interests and hopefully brands will start to take notice of the area a little bit more and realise what talent we have here!
