#MyCelticXmas Blogger Event ☆

Hi Lovelies,
I don’t even know where to start with this post, but its pretty much one of the most exciting posts I have ever written. I'm actually off to Barcelona tomorrow for a much needed break with Daniel, so as you can imagine I'm having a few suitcase dilema's tonight haha! I'm off for 5 days and can't wait to put my new Canon 700d to work on the beautiful architecure in Barcelona! But before I go off on a total ramble I will continue with tonights post :D I am still so happy about hosting my first ever blog event at The Celtic Manor a few days ago alongside the lovely Jess who is the Celtic Manor's digital officer. You might have already seen some posts about it if you follow me on Twitter and Facebook, but If not I will link all the blogs below who attended the event. Since joining the marketing team at The Celtic Manor as “digital marketing assistant” I have been really focused on developing the new blog and also looking at the idea of hosting a blog event. It’s such a fantastic hotel and literally is the perfect place for any kind of event, as it’s so diverse and accommodating. After a few meetings with my colleague Jess I put together a proposal to present to management to discuss. When I found out that the event was okay to go ahead with I felt such a sense of achievement. I have lacked in confidence for too long now, which is a shame as I used to be really confident.. but this was just what I needed to give me a boost and something to look forward too. Blogging for me has been such an emotional and rewarding experience and I’m so proud of my little old blog! It reminds me that I am capable and how determined I can be when I put my mind to it. I couldn't have been happier with how the day turned out, so I thought I would show you some picture's from the day!
The day started off with me welcoming the blogger's and offering them a drink of their choice. Once the private dining room in the Olive Tree Restaurant was ready, I took the blogger's down to be greeted by a glass of champagne, which was well received. After the blogger's were seated Jess and I gave a small presentation on the new blog and resort, which was followed by a talk from our fantastic pastry chef Karl who spoke about the inspiration behind the Afternoon Tea. Needless to say many tasty festive treats followed from afternoon tea to delicious warm candied citrus peel and gingerbread spiced scones. Once the event began my nerves soon went away and it was great to enjoy the company of some lovely bloggers at a lovely venue! The Christmas Afternoon Tea is absolutely delicious and I completely recommend it as a treat for you, your loved ones and even as a gift too! So here is to one of many blogger events to come at the Celtic Manor Resort :D I would also love to hear your thoughts in the comments section down below and of course leave your link if you would like to be added to the Celtic Manor blogging list!

  4. Great post and great ohotos, not bad considering you didn't know how to use your camera!
    I didn't realise the event was so much of a well needed boost for you, I'm so glad I was able to be part of that.
    Once again, thank you so much for an amazing day.

  5. So sorry not to have been able to make it (especially as my first ever blog post was about the Celtic Manor!) - looks as though it was a fabulous event. Looking forward to future CM bloggers' events. Enjoy Barca! Lots of love, Fabulous Wales xx
