I always get nervous when I meet someone for the first time. I don't want to make a bad first impression, but I get nervous, repeat myself and can't find my words.

I met up with Aimee today for brunch at The Luxe on Commercial Street. I don't know why I was so nervous. Aimee is lovely and it was easy talking to her, even though we'd never met before. The food we ate was lovely - I had blueberry pancakes with pouring cream and Aimee had a fry up.
After bruch we had a wonder around some markets. I don't know where I've been but I've never been to a market in London before. This needs to change, it was amazing! The bags, dresses, art, jewellery... I could of bought it all! I will definatly be going to another market soon.
It was a lovely day out and it was nice to meet another blogger! Meeting Aimee got me even more excited for the #ldnbloggermeet.

I thought I'd write a list of everyone who has shown interest in attending the Blogger Meet. I hope this is okay with everyone, but if you'd like for me to take your name off the list then please do let me know. If you'd like your name added to the list then let me know as well. I will link everyone's name to their blog and write their Twitter name next to it. I'll leave my name off the list because I will, obviously, be attending :)

We are aiming for a picnic in Hyde Park (weather depending). I'll be making (or buying haha!) some cupcakes for the day but you may want to bring a little bit of food with you in case you get peckish. We'll be thinking of some games/ice breakers and some fun stuff for us to do during the day.
In the evening, me and Aimee will be going out for dinner and cocktails! Anyone who would like to come is more than welcome. We will probably decide a place on the day, but if not I will let you know.

Saturday 10th September, meeting at 12:30.

The nearest tube station is Lancaster Gate which is on the Central Line. (I have checked and there are no planned closures at this time. I was going to suggest meeting near Hyde Park Corner, but the Piccadilly line has part closures.) Lancaster Gate is a 2 minute walk from Hyde Park.
If you head through the Marlborough Gate, me and Aimee will have already set up, making sure it will be hard for you to miss us. I am thinking that we will set up near the Two Bears Fountain. There are toilets and a cafe near this meeting point which I thought was quite good.

I have been using this map when planning out the meeting point. I will be checking out the area one weekend to make sure it'll be okay for our picnic. I will also be coming up with a rainy day plan then as well, but it'll be around the same area.

I hope this all sounds okay to you and if you have any questions then please do not hesitate to ask; you can reach me on twitter using #ldnbloggermeet, at my email: or by commenting below.

If you know any one else that might like to come then please do invite them and I will add them to the list above ^ I'm really sorry if I've missed you off! We have been contacting a few sponsors for this event and they are interested in the amont of people attending the blogger meet. If you will be coming, it would be great if you could confirm so I have more of an idea about numbers. I hope this is okay :)
