Bloggers Teaspoon, Newcastle

In March I bought a ticket for a very exciting charity blogger meet up that was being held in Newcastle. After two months of waiting last weekend the event finally came and myself and Jen (From Juniper) hopped on a train and went on up to the Toon.

The event, held in the Salsa Cafe, was organised by Rachel and Becca to raise money for Lupus UK. The tables were set with many different tea cups and the room was decorated with gorgeous bunting and balloons on the walls. It was very much a huge tea party with lots of Tea Pigs tea on the go accompanied by cupcakes made by Alice which were very yummy. I managed to try a chocolate flake cup of tea which was strange but very drinkable!

We got a chance to chat with other North East bloggers whilst we rummaged through our goody bags provided by Intu Metro Centre and ate lots of food from the Salsa Cafe. I was sat on a table with Emily, Becca, Becca and Amy (with little one in tow). We had lovely chats about all things blogging and then it was time for the raffle in which lots of prizes were dished out.

After this we all moved around a bit to meet other people on different tables which was quite good as I had chance to speak to Charlotte, Beth, Laura and Emily. After this myself and Jen decided to head off, full to the brim with tea and cake.

Whilst we were doing a spot of shopping I received a tweet from Chloe asking where I'd gone and did I want to meet up? Of course I did! So we found each other in Eldon Square and wandered aimlessly chatting. Chloe took me and Jen to the quayside to see the GB Cupcakery which I am desperate to visit! After that we said our goodbyes and got the train back to Middlesbrough.

It was a great meet up and I am so glad I made the trip up to Newcastle for it. I want to thank Rachel and Becca for organising this as they did such a good job!

When is the next one girls?!
