I could never have imagine, just a little over a month ago, when I’d tweeted that I wish Jozi would also have a blogger meet up, thatyLaura, Wenchy and I could pull off such an awesome event and it was all thanks to the massive response of all the bloggers and tweeters at the event as well as our incredibly generous sponsors!
The Sunnyside Park Hotel, which is just beautiful, agreed to host us and I must say, kudos to them, as it was CHAOS! 50 bloggers and tweeters scattered across their beautiful gardens, kids on jumping castles and individual bills but somehow, they pulled it off and everything went off smoothly.
There was a little bit of chaos early on as Laura, Wenchy and I met an hour before the event to pack everyone’s personalized Swag bags but somehow we got it done, no small feat, considering the number of sponsors we had on board and all the personalized bags that needed to be packed!
But in the end, I am quite sure everyone will agree, the day was a roaring success and something we will definitely like to do again! It was fantastic to finally meet people IRL, that I’ve “known” for years and also to meet new tweeps!
After everyone had received their personalized swag bags, which included all kinds of amazing goodies, including:
Personalized Macaroon tote
A Le Crueset cappuccino set
Products from Rain Africa products.
Naartjie also sent size/age/gender appropriate outfits for all the mom’s who attended. I just loved Hannah’s little outfit, so beautiful and so perfectly personalized considering I call her my little bird!
We also had a number of lucky draws and prizes to dish out that included an overnight stay for two at The Sunnyside Park Hotel, 3x R500 iTunes vouchers sponsored by My iStore, Tranquil Body Treats Vouchers, books from Rich Simmonds and Sorbet vouchers.
Best of all, I have one swag bag to give away right here on this blog! Simply follow the entry points below to be entered to win the following swag, note that entries are open to South African residents only:

Once again, a massive thanks to all our amazing sponsors and guests on Saturday. I think everyone enjoyed the day, it was amazing to meet so many amazing peeps and to be so spoiled.
Till next time…
