ITWBN - Into The West Blogger Network (The Blogging Family)!

ITWBN is an event created by Sinead Carroll from Yummy Mummy blog and Saibh Egan photographer joined her to make a killer combo! The idea behind it is to allow bloggers and aspiring bloggers meet up, mingle, swap tips etc. It began as something small and has become this huge sold out event!


So I had never been to ITWBN before and the last time I was in Galway was for a school tour so I had no idea where I was going. I just thought buy a ticket and figure it out later. I ordered my outfit and shoes and excitement grew as the day became closer and closer. I was living my life for ITWBN!! I did feel a little nervous but I already knew some of the bloggers attending quite well so that made it easier.

So the day finally came and I was up at the crack of dawn to grab a train. It was so dark I had no natural light to do my makeup in...the struggle was real. After a long five hour journey I landed and instantly felt welcome and at home with amazing and like minded people. There was some great talks on the day including a very inspirational and admirable speech from Cocoa Brown's Kate Kelly and I can't not mention the infamous and fabulously cheeky Galway Player. He had us in stitches!!!
For me the best part of the day was mingling and chatting. Can you believe it? Me..loving the chats?? Lol! I met lots of lovely bloggers and got to reunite with some blogger friends which was fantastic. It is very surreal because you are so used to seeing beauty bloggers selfies when all of a sudden you are chatting them. It's as if they come to life infront of you!! The venue for the event was the Radisson Galway which is a classy and stunning hotel. There was no shortage of food and it was cute, girly & delicious.


My LBD is a recent purchase from Missguided and my shoes are also a recent purchase from Penneys. I kept my accessories and my makeup very casual and understated as I wanted it to look classic and also because I had never been to ITWBN I didn't know what was too much or not enough. I just kinda thought "Melissa you can't go wrong with an LBD!!''
Lets just say we were spoiled!! The goodie bag was so incredibly generous. I cannot wait to trial and review all the products.

I am already so excited for and outfit planning for May. Sinead and Saibh are two amazing women!
I love my blogging family!!
