Cosmopolitan Super Blogger master Class 2014

 On Monday morning myself and Laura headed into London for the Cosmopolitan Super blogger event. We decided to make the day of it due to me coming from the North to stay with Laura for a couple nights in Milton Keynes. I will be doing s separate post on what we got up to in London soon, so keep an eye out for that. When we got to the event in Pimlico we were greeted with a glass of champagne or fresh orange juice, I decided on the orange juice due to London feeling very humid. An ice cold drink was just what I needed before going into the event. 
 I am a huge fan of Cosmopolitan magazine so it was amazing to attend this event to learn more about the blogging world. It was incredible to hear Fleur De Force talk about her experience in person, I watch all her videos on You Tube and I read her blog so it was great to hear her advice. I noted down so many great tips and advice in my note pad, I felt very inspired. It was amazing to hear from everyone on the panel, so many great tips. Some useful quotes too which I will save to help me stay motivated and inspired. Sometimes blogging can get overwhelming but like Fleur said on the panel that there is always room for a new blogger. We all bring something different to our blogs and there is always room on the internet. I loved that if you create content you love, the right audience for you will soon find you. Be yourself and be weird, people like you will find you. Start writing down every blog achievement in a note pad to keep you feeling inspired. 

 "It's important to build up a good presence on all forms of social media, focusing on your blog is great but a huge amount of readers doesn't always reflect good blog stats - brands love to see you working with them via Instagram/Twitter as they are 'here & now' whereas a blog post can take a while to create!"

"Be consistent, be persistent & be yourself"

''Be yourself, be weird, because the people who are weird like you will find you''


Thank you Cosmopolitan for this amazing goodie bag!
 You could tell how passionate Fleur and kat were about their blogs, it felt good to hear everything they had to offer. They have given me the motivation to know that I should never give up, even when I feel like I can never compete with the big bloggers. We all bring something new to the blogging world and if you are wanting to start a blog, do it. I have never approached a brand and asked to work with them but we got some great advice on how to if we wanted to work on a project with them. We also got some great advice on how to use social media to promote our blogs, spending time to promote your blog on the right platforms and we got some useful websites to keep in mind too.

I was lucky enough to meet Fleur De Force towards the end of the event. I think she is a great, inspiring and very talented person. She was amazing, waiting behind to answer any questions we had and she looked beautiful. I told her that I loved her content and that we saw her shopping. Of all people to see twice in one day in London. Its always scary to meet someone that you admire but she is just as amazing in person as she is online. Thank you Fleur for posing for so many photographs and for being so welcoming to anyone that wanted to talk to you. 


I had a great time at this event, I am so pleased that I attended it. I have learnt so many useful tips and the advice we received made me feel so inspired. Look out for my post on what I got up to during the day in London.

  1. Sounds like you had a great night and I think we all need a bit of a push every now and again to motivate us. Fleur seems so lovely from YouTube and how she interacts on Twitter so it's great to see she's like that at events too. Not that I presumed otherwise, but y'know how sometimes there can be security issues and people being rushed around. I love that Zara top she's wearing that has now disappeared from their website!!
