#DerbyBloggersBrunch – my first ever blogger meet up!

So today I went to my first ever blogger meet up. It was the #DerbyBloggersBrunch organised by the lovely Monet from Munching With Monet. It took place at The Cosy Club in Derby, one of the latest exciting new restaurants to open up in the city centre.

They were my inspiration and I wanted them to help me to mould my own blog’s personality. But I soon realised that my blog was never going to be like their blogs.
