Southampton Blog Meet Up

Image Credit

A few weeks ago I was kindly invited to a mini meet up with some of the Southampton blogging girls. I hadn't seen them all in a couple of months so was looking forward to catching up after the rush of Christmas. We had lunch at a Caribbean inspired restaurant called Turtle Bay in Guildhall square. Despite hearing great things about their cocktails, I had never actually be there and was very curious to find out what they had on offer.

I opted for the Pulled Pork Bun with Sweet Potato Fries. I am extremely sensitive to spicy food so wasn't surprised when I found the pulled pork a little too strong for me. That being said, it was extremely delicious and the Raspberry Reggae cocktail I ordered was the perfect combination to cool my burning mouth (I'm so dramatic!)

It was so nice to have a proper chat with the some of the girls and catch up with them all. It wasn't long before we were all sat chatting away about what we had been up to and our latest Netflix obsessions. The wonderful Natasha who had organised the meet up with Alice, gave us lovely goody bags filled with sweets and beauty samples.

Overall I had an absolutely fantastic time. Blog meet ups can sometimes feel a little daunting for me when there are lots of people, but it was great to go out with a smaller group and really get to chat a lot more. I will link everyones blog below because I seriously enjoy reading them all. I can't wait for the next meet up!

  1. This sounds like such a great way to meet up! Meeting loads of bloggers is lovely but it must have been nice to get to know people over some good food :) I'm so sad I couldn't make it (though feel like maybe I would have stuck out like a sore thumb next to you lovely ladies) but I hope to be at the next one!
