I was there! Meet my new friends. Food Bloggers Connect 09

I do not know where to start. My head is spinning. So much was going on last weekend, so many wonderful and fabulous people I met, and so much I have learnt! It was the Food Bloggers Connect weekend! Yeah. I feel so happy.

I think I can not describe all my feelings and amazing moments, I had, with words. Hence I will show you pictures. That is one thing I have learnt over the weekend actually. I found my voice. I found myself. And I found the voice of this blog. I love photography, especially food photography and my photos will speak instead of me. This time though, I will not show you many food photos. So take a seat and relax with me, while watching some of the wonderful moments I had over the past weekend.

Food Bloggers Connect weekend begins...


It all became reality thanks to wonderful Bethany from Dirty Kitchen Secrets.

The first food bloggers conference in Europe took place at Levant - lebanese restaurant in London. I can only recommend it, food was extraordinary there.

Now let me introduce all brilliant speakers. First, Meeta from What's For Lunch Honey revealed her secret to style and photograph beautiful food photos.

Kang - London Eater spoke about shooting in dark and social media. He is a natural speaker. I enjoyed his talk very much! Here is Kang talking about aperture.

Jeanne from Cook Sister!

And Jamie from Life's A Feast.

Both Jeanne and Jamie are excellent writers and they shared their secret to help us find our voice and make your blog successful.

Everybody were lively chatting. We had so much fun!

And of course, everything had to be well documented! As I sad at the beginning, it was a beautiful day with wonderful people and yummy food!

Wait wait, this is not the end... let me go on...

Here comes Sunday and a "Foodlovers Marylebone Village Walk". We went to Marylebone Farmers' Market.

And believe it or not, the whole weekend was finished with a take-away pizza! Can you imagine it? A bunch of food bloggers stuffing themselves with pizza? Oh yes, we enjoyed it so much! :)

I had the most wonderful, joyful, lovely and funny weekend. And the most importantly, I met many gorgeous people who became my friends!
