Viewing from my lounger on the beach in Gran Canaria, my social media streams were full of delicious-looking food as the BITE Cardiff Food Festival team teased pictures of the fantastic food that could be sampled on the lead up to the event.
The event was held on Saturday 14th July 2018 at Insole Court between 12 noon and 10pm. It was advertised as a ‘food festival with a difference’ and focused on high-quality dishes and no fast food, and no entrance fee. The Chef’s were given the challenge of creating a single dish to sell for £3 each.
On Wednesday 20th June I headed to Caerphilly with some friends to celebrate a birthday. For the last 3 years we have gone to Bryn Meadows near Ystrad Mynach for their Royal Ascot or Ladies Day event, for a day of drinking, lots of food and live horse racing.
For Christmas my mother paid for the four of us (mum, dad, myself and my brother) to have hospitality at the Cardiff City Stadium for the Stereophonics gig. I think we were all taken aback by the gift. My brother loves live music, but this leans heavily on the alternative side of things. Dad is a music fan, especially of The Beatles and The Who, but I did not think he liked anything past the 70’s. I have previously helped mum download the album for her iPod – that’s right, she still uses an iPod. I think she wishes it was a CD player.
Earlier this week I attended my first ever blogger event. I network for business for the day job, so I was not nervous about entering room of people I do no know, however I was nervous about how I would be perceived.
I found the Blogger Meets Brands on Eventbrite when looking for business events to attend for the day job. The event is run by Yasmin Kurt who’s blog and events company is called The Wonders Of. She may correct me on this; she started to blog when she went travelling to remember her adventures. When she returned home, she found herself in the Events industry working in London. When returning home to Wales she created the brand to bring her two loves together.
