@jessorr23 recently popped along to @cathy_cmpr #nibloggerbrunch at @gallerybelfast
It was a great event where local content creators, brands and agencies got together to introduce themselves, as well as share their thoughts on the blogger community and tips for others likeminded content creators.
If you are a local blogger, we would recommend you look out for the next event ☺️ #positivevibes#agencylife
How Instagramable is @gallerybelfast 😍
New post on the blog tonight about the recent #nibloggerbrunch and talking about if fashion bloggers can care about more than just fashion 🤔 spoiler alert: they can 🤷
MEAT FREE MONDAY 😋
This was course 3 from yesterday when we were totally treated by @gallerybelfast for the #NIBloggerBrunch 😍
I was thankful to be sitting beside a fellow awkward foodie, shout out to @niamh_cunn for taking her intolerances seriously though 🙆
I was completely blown away by the 3 vegan courses we got! Everyone was definitely eyeing up these falafel burgers..beyond delicious!
It honestly makes me laugh when people say one person going vegan won't make any difference🤦
I cannot tell you the amount of people that have changed their lifestyle just from chatting to me.
And I actually don't even push my beliefs onto anyone...
It's generally just from people asking me how I have so much energy etc..and I would tell them about how I eat.
Aka, all day erryday 🙈
A few months ago my Mum would have screwed her face up at the thought of any meal without meat.
Last night, she was telling me about all the amazing vegan food in the hotel in Benidorm where she's been on holiday for the past week.
I genuinely almost cried.
I asked her why she didn't eat any meat while she was away and she responded saying "The animals"...
Never in my wildest dreams did I see my Mum making the connection, but I couldn't be more proud if I tried ❤️
But as always, this is just how I choose to live my life.
And I absolutely love it.
That doesn't mean I judge anyone else for their food choices...#youdoyouboo 😉
PLEASE talk to me below...what are your thoughts around meat?
Do you eat more or less than you used to?
Could you ever see yourself not eating meat again?
Hope everyone has had a beautiful start to the week 🤗
Our top ten visuals from our trusty iPhone pics and videos at #nibloggerbrunch today 'Continual improvement is better than delayed perfection' so we aim to pop back into this post and add as many tags as we can muster and share our key takeaways.
Truly an enjoyable way to meet a lot of our #NIBloggers face to face, welcome newbies, share tips and explore potential collaborations. With thanks to Cathy & the team for organising and our wonderful digital marketing training client Lizanne at Lunns for attending with us. Looking forward to the 3rd event this November/December

SUNDAY FUNDAY 🙆
....And the absolute epitome of a fun day at that!!!
So when I first started blogging, I really didn’t know anybody else doing that.
And I must admit that it was pretty difficult.
It was also a challenge for me because I was never one to share ANYTHING online.
I pretty much only used social media to keep in contact with people.
And here I am now sharing content every single day and LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT!
Today has just completely filled me with happiness.
I had the privilege of meeting soo many like-minded people this morning at the #NIBloggerBrunch in the stunning @gallerybelfast.
There was a huge range of talents from photographers, videographers and models to fashionistas, make-up artists and PR experts!
Months ago, I would never have dreamed at standing up and talking about myself in front of a full room of people, let alone some of the most creative and inspiring people in Northern Ireland.
And I am so grateful I had the opportunity to hear everyone else’s stories too!🤗
Serious thanks is needed for the ultimate #bosslady that is @cathy_cmpr for organising such an incredible event!🙆
My take away message from the day comes from the stunning @tiffanybrien, and that is to ALWAYS BE YOURSELF❤️
I seriously resonated with this because I often feel like an outsider.
But, today was just the most positive and uplifting event that has really encouraged me to just keep on doing what I am doing!
Super excited now for what the future holds 😊

Incredible reach in less than 10 hours for #NorthernIreland photographer and graphic designer @ga11mck - thanks to strong imagery, great storytelling and the use of relevant hashtags with influencer marketing
Is @instagram weekend hashtag project on your radar? Could it be relevant for your business? Can you create content strong enough for Instagram to want to feature you to their huge global audience? Different themes each week - is it worth having a look? - we certainly think so and hope to inspire content tomorrow at #InstaMeetBootcamp#InstaMeet#WWIM16#KindComments
