Last Wednesday Emily From China Village organised the third lifestyle bloggers meetup this time in one of her personal favourite spaces Coppa Café at the Royal Hiberian Academy on Ely Place. I can see why she loves it – located at the entrance to the gallery, it is bright and welcoming. The staff are very passionate about what they do and they put service and food at the forefront. There are lovely little touches like the table napkins being made by Frederico’s Italian momma!

This was my third lifestyle bloggers meetup and I always come away with more inspiration and contacts in the growing blogging world. Everyone is very friendly and helpful and it’s lovely to put faces to blogs. We were welcomed with a refreshing cocktail before being treated to a range of speciality sandwiches, frittata and salad with a glass of wine. Unfortunately I had eaten before I came but the food was delicious. I will definitely be back when I’m hungrier so I can enjoy it. I was lucky to share my table with Priscilla from Woke Up in Dublin and I also met the lovely Ajda, a food stylist as well as catching up with Alex of Hydrangea Girl and Rincy of A Little Bird.


After we had been fed and watered – Emily organised a helpful swap-shop of resources and ideas where we all shared either an idea or asked for help with something. This was a really good exercise. I was looking to connect with more bloggers and luckily both Lauren from The Dare Project and Holly from Sweet Like Cinnamon were also looking for similar so hopefully this will lead to interesting guest blog posts by both soon – watch this space!


I really enjoyed the night and sharing blog stories and tips with fellow bloggers. We got lovely goodie bags from Etsy and Tiger to take home. Thanks to Emily and Coppa Café for organising and hosting a lovely evening.



blogger meetup invite sept 2013
Last Wednesday on a rainy night in Dublin, the lovely Emily From China Village hosted a second gathering of lifestyle bloggers in Peperina Garden Bistro. Peperina is a local bistro located on Dunville Avenue in Ranelagh, close to the Beechwood Luas stop.


There was a great turn-out of about 30 bloggers. It never ceases to amaze me the number of blogs and the variety available on every topic imaginable….if you don’t believe me check out the Blog Awards Ireland which recently took place. We even had one of the winners among us that night, Ketty of French Foodie in Ireland, who won both Best Personal Blog and Best Newcomer. Her blog is well worth checking out for great places to go in Dublin. Also what struck me was the many nationalities represented – there were English; Americans; French as well as Irish.


We started the night off with some punch and a craft demonstration from Laura of Daintree Paper who showed us how to decorate glasses to liven up a table display. I loved the idea of glitter – so simple yet very effective and even me, a crafting novice, could manage that. She had lots of ideas and then we got to put them into practice by attempting our very own. Peperina treated us to some samples of their lovely food both savoury including some yummy mini sliders and sweet including mini scones. We got to chat and get to meet some new friends.


The highlight is always meeting the faces behind the blogs some of who I already feel I know by following their blogs [stalker alert] – Rincy of A Little Bird; Alex of Hydrangea Girl; Laura of Dublin Diary. It’s also nice to be introduced to some new blogs to follow and hear what interesting things they have going on – Jette of Wood and Chocolate who has just moved here from London; Emily of Lemonkind who is launching a new shop on November 8th and Liz of Cool and Dandy who interviews the faces behind the small shops, galleries, cafes around Dublin.

All in all a fun night and we even got a goodie bag to take home. Thanks to Emily and Peperina for hosting.
