Last night I attended the Pinterest Meet & Greet party in London. Pinterest are working on spreading the Pinterest word here in the UK so invited lots of bloggers to a party in London. It gave all of us bloggers a chance to meet with other people, both from within our own blogging community and those who write about other areas of interest. Plus we got free food & drink – what’s not to love about that?!
Upon arrival I was given a name badge & a goodie bag, which contained tokens for some very delicious looking cocktails & a Pinterest t-shirt! Awesome! Then I stopped by the bar to get myself sorted & grab a red wine. I met up with someone who I’d chatted with at the previous Pinterest event. We had a quick chat & he then introduced me to some other pinners. After talking about our blogs, I ventured off to have a mooch about. Here’s what I found: Sweets & flowers!
The Make Lounge were also there with a cake pop decorating stall & a shot glass decorating stall. After a while, we were given a talk by Evan Sharp, co-founder of Pinterest. His speech was really interesting, as he explained the background to Pinterest and how it’s grown over the years. It was really touching to see how a simple idea can grow into something so amazing!
After a little bit more chatting, well it was a meet & greet, and finding out about some new changes to Pinterest it was time to head home. It was a lovely evening and I got to meet some great bloggers, The Magic Bean and Poires au Chocolat – well worth checking out their blogs & Pinterest boards!
