On Saturday a few bloggers got together at a little place called The Emerald Peacock and despite a few people not meeting their ridiculously high dress code (event planning lesson learnt) it was a really fun night.
I’d also like to personally thank NAB for not paying people and severely cutting down the number of attendees. Thanks, that was super nice of you! The people who did come were true gems, I wish there were more hours in the night to get to know everyone a little better, you know, in person.
Nuffnang were brilliant and shelled out for pizza, I think in total we polished off about 12 of those bad boys. They were sooooo good!

Ahhhhh the sweet nectar of the gods… Rekorderlig. Introduced to me by the lovely Teer the night before and swiftly became mine and everyone else favourite choice of beverage.

We had something to eat, something to drink and then it was photo booth time! Here are a few of my favourites for obvious reasons!

Luke, our photographer for the evening and partner of the lovely Nicole. He wanted me to stress that he’s not a professional photographer, he just loves to take photographs. We welcome everyone to apply as event photographers at our numerous Hello Blogger Events across Australia. I know how hard it is to get opportunities to get social exposure, gain experience and add to your portfolio. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
