So I thought I would do a little post about the Bloggers United AU: Perth Event 2016, this is my second year attending this event. Bloggers United AU is a groups of wonderful girls who were brought together by Founders Jasmine & Nikita and their motto is Connecting Bloggers, Vloggers and Social Media Gurus and boy do they life upto that. When I first started blogging I found it hard to share my passion of blogging with friends and family as they didn’t quite understand it and I also didn’t want to bombard them or bore them with it either, but the blogger community was also closed behind a computer screen. Since Bloggers United AU started and with the help of Perth Reps Samantha and Sophie have been creating events like Bloggers United AU: Perth Event 2016 and other smaller events like BUA x Lush event I have opened my world up to meeting tons of new friends who I had only met over the internet and other friends I was yet to know even existed.
So the first event in 2015 was the first event of its kind and especially because of being in Perth and not being close to the action of the east coast blogging community it was super exciting for us to be connected to brands and other bloggers like we see happening in the east coast. Last year was kind of overwhelming the room was time for the amount of blogger and things in the room at the Gramercy Bar which was a lovely venue but not so suited to the event we had. Bloggers United AU: Perth Event 2016 was at the Four Points By Sheraton Perth in the Fremantle I which was much more suited and spacious.
When we arrived we were offered a glass of bubbles and there was time to catch up with people or meet new people, we then sat down at 1.30 and welcomed to Bloggers United Au: Perth Event 2016 by Sam & Sophie and it then we were off to a flying start.
First presentation was from Siobhan at presenting the brand VANI T to us, we leant about an Australian mineral Makeup brand that is made in Australia. We were gifted with the Bronzing Custard to sample so keen to crack that out with summer nearing.
Next up was Nikita Papas from Loreal Professsional, which looks after 6 big name hair brands including Loreal Professionel, Redkin NYC 5th Avenue, Matrix, Pureology, . Nikita took us through the importance of a good Media Kit and what makes a good Media Kit, It was full of great information that is going to help me update my media kit in the future website here. He provided us with a wealth of knowledge from a Brands perspective that we wouldn’t have access to if we didn’t have events like this.
Time for a tea break where some wonderful finger food was offered and an opportunity to try our hand at creating a picture with some of the gifts given to us on the flat lay station to win a prize and also an opportunity to mingle and network with the brands and bloggers.
The second half of the afternoon kicked off with a Presentation from Welda, not a brand that is overly my cup of tea and they presented last year too. But I do love their Skinfood hand cream.
The final Presentation of the day for Bloggers United AU: Perth Event 2016 was from a fellow blogger, almost PR graduate, and all round #girlboss Sameera from Dynamique Blog. This was incredible, Ive been following with Sameera for a while and love her snap chat channel! She is so full of energy and is inspiring, she shared her 5 most important tips from constantly re-inspiring to the importance of surrounding yourself with a great Squad. I took away from great tips that I will definitely use to re-inspire and work out what my Dream is for my blog. The Hustle never stops and Sameera served up the goods to how to keep on top of that hustle.
The to finish of the day Sameera and Nikita had a panel for us to ask them all the burning questions surrounding the business of blogging. It was great to have a fellow bloggers perspective along with a brands perspective and a knowledge from PR background to all the questions and mysteries of blogging and working with brands.
Finishing up with a fashion shot on the way out the door I lugged my MASSIVE goodie bag out to the car as we were spoilt yet again, I can’t wait to show you some of the cool finds and products that I won’t be able to live with out while I sit there and wonder how I didn’t know about them and now can’t live with out.
Thanks to the BUA team for a successful Bloggers United AU: Perth Event 2016
