Happy Sunday gang! Another week done and dusted, and it’s been an eventful one for me. On Friday I masqueraded as a ‘knowledgeable person’ at Cultural Conversations, run by the fantastic Emma of Culture Vultures and held at The Round Foundry. I went along to the first Cultural Conversations last month as an observer and had a fantastic time sharing my knowledge of social media with others. Word obviously spread about the quality, and whereas the first time we were chatting in small groups of about 6, this time there were 50+ people! Ahh!
I headed up two sessions – one on blogging and one on SEO – and helped out with one on Twitter. There were so many people in my blogging session that it had to be split in two! I shared my experiences and others did the same, which resulted in a very fine conversation on blogging, online content, tone of voice, HTML and more. Thank you to everyone who made that initially very daunting situation a thoroughly pleasurable one!
If you’re interested in social media and how it can help build your brand (whether you’re selling a product or yourself), or if you’d just like to meet lovely Leeds people, I’d recommend popping along to the next Cultural Conversations on 3rd September. Follow Culture Vultures on Twitter for all the updates and plenty of chat from the lovely Emma.
Right! On with it. I hauled my ass out of bed at 7am this morning and made it to my favourite car boot sale. It was quieter than usual (think the grey skies put people off) but I’m rather pleased with my pickings…
I’ve been looking for a crochet blanket for a while so was delighted to find this for £1! I’ve draped over the chair in the living room. The leather cowboy boots were £2 and just about fit… I can’t decide whether to keep or sell. What do you think?
These beautiful Chanel compacts were just £2 for the pair. The smaller is an eyeshadow and the larger a lip kit, complete with Chanel sponge. I don’t think I’ll be using the makeup inside but they look fabulous on my dresser! The cream jug was a 99p charity shop buy on Friday, the teacup is part of a set from the same charity shop and was £3 and the glass jug was a 50p car boot find a few weeks ago. The pink sweetheart roses I picked up this morning.
All in all, a very successful trip! Have you been booting today? Any bargains to share? What’s making you smile this Sunday?
