I blog, therefore I am

I blog & I live in Melbourne. Two very real elements of my life I am certainly proud of. Just when I thought I couldn't feel prouder, along came Nuffnang Fashionopolis.







There I was, on a chilly Saturday morning, sitting amongst the who's who of the Melbourne fashion scene at 1000 Pound Bend, Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne. I was certain that this was the place to be, amongst the buzzing sounds of fashionistas, chatting away face-to-face and over cyberspace, via platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest. 

The brainchild behind this extraordinary event was none other than the Lady herself, Lady Melbourne. Phoebe Montague, aka Lady Melbourne, is one of the original Melbourne bloggers, beginning her journey back in 2007. Meeting Phoebes Montague was certainly the highlight of the day. I learned a great deal from her about the business of blogging, including the very important topic of blogging etiquette.





Sponsored by Inner Circle @ Sunglass Hut, I had fun browsing and trying on sunglasses available, from design houses such as Prada and  mui mui. Sunglass Hut staff offered  instant Polaroids. Polaroids have made quite a come back and I must say that it was pretty cool to receive an instant snap of myself. 






Another highlight of the day was Fashion Torque, Melbourne's only live Fashion chat show, founded by the ever fabulous Jenny Bannister and always handsome Philip Boon. Special panelists on the day were Sarah Gale fo Sarah Gale  of The Iconic and Patti Huntington of Frockwriter




The final presentation was on the topic of how to monetise your blog. This segment was presented by Kyra Pybus of Pybus PR, David Krupp of Nuffnang Australia and jewellery designer, Amber Venz of VENZedits.





It was amazing to put many faces to names and meet fellow fashionistas/bloggers in the flesh. There was an awesome sense of community in this one room and I felt really lucky to be a part of something quite unique and fabulous. 









I hope that there are plenty more of these special events for bloggers in the future. When there is, I look forward to sharing the next one with you again.

Have a fashionable day, my special readers!

Yours in style,
