the 21 commandments of blogger events

Thou shalt fret about outfits.  ‘Best summer outfit’ dress code on a rainy grey day, for example.  The struggle is real.  #Jet2Sunchester, the irony!


Thou shalt give no sh*ts about taking photos in public.  Being with other bloggers makes it ok.

Thou shalt assume everyone knows everyone, and awkwardly float.


Thou shalt appreciate free cocktails.

Thou shalt remain surgically attached to camera and phone.


Thou shalt look antisocial when staring at phone.  Frantically following everyone on twitter counts as sociable, dw.

Thou shalt discuss cameras, lots.

Thou shalt ask “have we spoken on twitter?” repeatedly.


Thou shalt take plenty shameless selfies, and bat no eyelids at others taking shameless selfies.

Thou shalt photobomb.  Accidentally and deliberately.


Thou shalt participate in every photo set up, be it inflatable flamingo, fish background or otherwise.


Thou shalt realise nobody knows anyone, and introduce oneself and make friends.  Simple.

Thou shalt forget whether you have met before, or seen 73 weeks of their Instagram.

Thou shalt spill something down oneself whilst carrying too many bags and hope nobody noticed.



Thou shalt embrace glitter faces if glitter faces are what’s happening.



Thou shalt collect all the brochures and leaflets to read later.

Thou shalt devour the canapes.

Thou shalt appreciate the goodie bag gifts.  Portable phone chargers and lipbalm – they know us bloggers well.



Thou shalt make appearances in as many vlogs as possible.  Hey Paula’s Youtube!

Thou shalt photograph the goodie-bag cookie before eating it.  #Bloggerproblems.

Thou shalt lust after the tropical gardens at Hotel Botanico… whilst on the train back to rainy Preston.


Thank you Jet2Holidays for inviting me along!  I had a fab afternoon and left with A) lots of new bloggy pals, B) a half glittery face and C) a need to go to Malta.  So much temptation.  Also congrats to Jane and Jess on winning a holiday each – your reactions were great. 😀  Was lovely to meet Daisy, Jessica, Paula, Holly, Holly P, Erin, Rodica, Ellie and many more!

      I managed to peel most of mine off at the end of the event – didn’t quite fancy rocking up at Preston train station with it on! But it took a good few cotton wool pads and toner to get the rest off haha. I’m dying to go there, it looks amazing! What kind of trips have you been on?
