East Midlands Blogger Meet Up #3 || Chesterfield


It is always fun to meet up with fellow bloggers and talk about our blogs and life and make new friends. You may be wondering where meet up number 2 is but I didn't blog that one (I know terrible blogger of the month!). It was in Leicester though and you can read Samantha's post here.

This time we met in Chesterfield where Samantha lives and decided to make a nice evening of it with dinner and drinks. We had myself, Samantha, Becki, Tarnya and Kirstie attend for this meet up so it was small but we had a great evening and a good natter. Go checkout all of their amazing blogs too by clicking on their names!

We met at Giorgio's Italian, an independent family owned restaurant, which had an amazing menu and a beautiful wood burning pizza oven. I went with the Pumpkin Risotto for main course and thought it was delicious. As I am vegan they kindly offered to make this without any cheese and were open to suggestions as to how the dish can be amended to suit my needs. All of the other girls meals looked great with generous portion sizes and after seeing clean plates all around I think I can say they all enjoyed theirs too. I skipped dessert as there wasn't much choice in terms of vegan dishes but decided to have an extra glass of wine instead, naughty naughty! 

Witch Skincare had also kindly given us some samples to share and try. I had used their products a few years ago during my teen years but hadn't thought about them until recently. We received their Gentle Exfoliating Face Wash and Overnight Clearing Serum - both of which have been amazing and I would definitely recommend for all ages. My skin has been so soft and clear since using both of these products! 

After we finished at the restaurant we all said our goodbyes and looked forward to future meet ups to see each other again. I was staying at the Casa Hotel as part of the meet up so look out for the review of the hotel soon!

If you want to be apart of future meet ups then be sure to fill out this form to add your details to the Midlands Bloggers database. The next one is being held in Lincoln in December for the beautiful Christmas Market.

Thank you Giorgio's Italian for hosting the dinner, Witch for gifting us with some treats and to the girls who attended for a great evening!

We received complimentary wine and 10% discount as part of our restaurant booking and gifts from Witch Skincare however all opinions are my own.
