There were 16 of us (plus little Evie!) aswell as my best friend who came along to take some photos of us! @thismommaiswingingit got some amazing shots that really captured the afternoon. Lots of laughing, smiling and of course…lots of cake! It was her first time photographing a large group and she was absolutely brilliant! Thismommaiswingingit is a mommy blogger who knows all too well the life of being a mommy so we were thankful for a couple of hours eating cake and drinking fizz together! We also had another local business, Cameras & Confetti who came along to film the event so we had a little clip to look back on. After speaking to Emily online she loved what we were doing with body confidence and joined in the fun with us. We all introduced ourselves and unexpectedly the ladies went on to say about how important Popsy is to them and how it has helped them feel more confident women - wow! That little coffee shop must have taken that exact moment to start chopping onions because my eyes were watering!
We all had afternoon tea and it felt like chatting to old friends. Some people came with a friend, while others came on their own. I know that for some of the ladies this was a huge achievement to go to an event where they didn’t know anybody and I am super proud of them for smashing those comfort zones! Everybody chatted amongst each other, laughing and joking and everybody looked super relaxed! I can’t believe I doubted myself and worried nobody would turn up. I am so glad this was organised and it was really lovely seeing the women arranging to meet up again. I am now looking at holding meets up in other parts of the country so if you are interested in an event in your local area join our Popsy Clothing Frocks & Friends group on Facebook for more details. You will also see more photos of the meet up and be part of our little community.
I want to say a massive thank you to all the ladies who took the time to come to the first meet up and for making it such a success! Your support for Popsy just blows me away and I am forever thankful for you all for helping create something really special.
I want to say a huge thank you to @thismommaiswingingit for her photos
