You might remember my excitement a few months ago when I was informed that I had received one of only 150 much sought after places for the Next Blogger Network Workshop?? The event was taking place in London in October, flights booked and outfit planning complete I was distraught to wake up to the news that a great storm had hit London that day! There were no trains in or out of the airports! I followed the #NBNWorkshop on Twitter and it was clear that everyone who was lucky enough to attend had a fantastic day and found the event incredibly beneficial. This was organised by the team at Next Clothing who run a very successful blogger network. Unique to any blogger meet-up I have attended, the team put a lot of effort into the workshop style of the day giving presentations on SEO and advertising amongst other things.
I received follow up emails from the lovely Gemma Glover at Next who was so disappointed that the storm had put a dampener on the days events for those of us unable to make it. Nonetheless she happily forwarded us the presentations so it felt like we did not miss out on a second of the day! As if this was not kind enough of NEXT, last week I received a goodie bag from the event delivered straight to my front door! Here is a look at what was inside it!
I love NEXT clothing and always find myself drifting towards their stores to update my work wardrobe as their office wear is just fabulous (especially during a NEXT sale)! I adore each item I received in the goodie bag. First up is the extremely cosy animal print snuggle socks! You can buy a similar pair of snuggle socks here for €20. The miniature white photo frame is the perfect size for a picture of my baby Kingsley the Bich-Poo! They come in a set of three ornate frames for just €8.00 which you can buy here. The frame will also match the interior décor for my blog office in my new house which I hope to move into in the New Year! I am also keeping the candle for my new office! I love having candles lit especially when I am blogging, fruity and floral scents in particular are so relaxing. This Jasmine and Tigerlily candle again is just perf!
I’ve also shared the workshop schedule with you so you can see the amazing effort the team at NEXT went to for us bloggers! Will any of these items be on your Christmas wishlist?
