One of the nice things about blogging is sometimes having the opportunity to take part in events that you may not have known about without an online presence. It’s a benefit of this hobby that I’m always grateful for, especially when I can take my camera along for some photos!
Recently Dublin foodie haven, Fallon & Byrne, invited a host of bloggers, journalists and social media lovers to join them for an after-work hour of cocktails and nibbles in their city centre restaurant. It was a fun evening with welcoming hosts, friendly staff and of course lots of fellow bloggers and tweeters. Their fab bar staff whipped me up some amazing virgin cocktails (Mojito and Pappy Honeysuckle, they were luscious) and served us with plates of bite sized deliciousness!
Due to my excitement, and nervousness, my photos were less than I had hoped for, and certainly not enough to do Fallon & Byrne justice, but I hope you’ll get an idea from the few I’ve put together above! These things always make me nervous; why is it so easy to chat to people online, but petrifying to talk face to face?!
Well, the photos may not be very good, but you can take my word for it that the surroundings were ambient and the drinks were divine! I’ll definitely be heading back there for some more summery fun :) Thanks so much to Fallon & Byrne’s Jennifer for putting together a wonderful evening for us – say hello to her on Twitter when you have a chance!
In other news, one of my photos from Bloom in the Park was published in the latest issue of Irish magazine Image Interiors and Living. Check it out on page 92 if you’re picking up a copy!
I’m in the process of putting together a Blogging Beautifully post about using images on your blog. I get a fair amount of questions about different aspects of using photos, so I’m writing an advice post that I hope will help some bloggers out! If you have any questions related to using images just leave them in the comments below or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy your weekend!
