RECAP/ ROUND UP: Bloggers United Meet-Up + WIN


Bloggers United; Connecting Bloggers, Vloggers, Social Media Gurus, Influences and Makeup Enthusiasts.

Bloggers United Philosophy:
Bloggers United is very much about YOU, as our logo displays the ‘U’ being larger than the rest of the lettering. We are all about helping one another out and being the best we can be in our blogs.

The main aim of Bloggers United is to make an amazing Australian community even better, to support all bloggers and help them gain more exposure, meet other people in the blogging community and to have fun doing what they love - blogging!


Last Sunday Jasmine and I had our very first Bloggers United 'Meet-Up'.
We were kindly hosted by P.J O’Brien’s Irish Pub in Southbank, which is a perfect central location in Melbourne for anyone to get too. A short walk from Flinders Street Station and has parking within Southgate where the pub is located. 

The environment that we were in was made for exactly how we wanted the event to go. Informal, casual and relaxed. Sitting up on high stools and using barrels for tables was a unique presentation.

Bloggers United had a fun 3 hour afternoon were we talked about many things but first up it was those Who? What? Why? When? and Where? 
Who Bloggers United are, What Bloggers United is, Why - Our philosophy, What we want to achieve and How they can get involved.

When then took a mini break getting to network with other bloggers as we took silly selfie photos with other bloggers some who we knew and some new faces to add to our blogger friends list.
The funniest 'silly selfie' was rewarded with a prize kindly gifted by Waxaway / Bump eRaiser.

We then got back down to business and started chatting about all things nitty and gritty in the blogging world, all those things you find hard to talk about to another blogger and that you couldn't speak to your friends who aren't bloggers. We opened forum in this relaxed casual environment where we talked about our dilemmas, our successes, media kits, sponsored posts etc 
This was one of the main areas of focus that was open for discussion for a long period of time. It was a really informative session that both Jas and I walked away with wonders on how we can make things a little easier for everyone in the blogging world as well as taking home many tips for ourselves through other bloggers insights.


To mellow it down after the long blogger world talks we went into two more tasks with prizes up for grabs from our sole sponsors - Waxaway / Bump eRaiser, then returning back to wrap up the day with talking all things Waxaway and give our experiences with waxing. 
Each attendee was then gifted a showbag filled with goodies from Waxaway / Bump eRaiser to take home and enjoy for some DIY pampering.




Thank you very much to our sole sponsor Waxaway / Bump eRaiser for the showbags and thank you to P.J O'Brien's Irish Pub Southbank for having us.


But most of all thank you to all the Bloggers who turned up and supported Bloggers United. This is only the beginning and great things are on their way. Jas and I are very much appreciative of your time and can't wait to venture this journey with you.

    1. Oh girl, how do you do the underarms? Are you a perfectionist at the DIY at home for them? I need to get some serious tips from someone or have more hands... I feel like you need at least 4 hands to get the underarms done.

    1. Oh don't worry, I still am. I do some DIY and then get my waxer to do most of it when I visit her but I still cringe and am not used to it at all.
      The things we do for beauty hey.

  16. I have always been a tentative waxer, strictly legs only, but recently branched out into underarm waxing with the great small area wax strips from Waxaway - they work really well and are great value as there are a lot in the box!
