To celebrate a wonderful year of blogging and #NZBloggers events, we organised a fun afternoon with Mixing it Up at La Zeppa Kitchen and Bar. Laurie and Cassandra from Mixing It Up lead us through creating beautiful paintings, whilst we had snacks and drinks from La Zeppa. Most of us were inexperienced or very out of practice with art, but with helping hands and plenty of encouragement, we all left with great paintings.
Here’s who joined us for the event:
- Angela – A Style Collector
- Carli – The Enthusiastic Cook
- Charlotte – Miss Charlotte Cake
- Danielle – The Restless Empire
- Laura – Bitch Peas
- Lena – Lena Talks Beauty
- Maggie – My Dear Sunday
- Megan – Apron Strings and Sticky Fingers
- Nishu – Lips n Berries Beauty Blog
- Rebecca – Once Upon an Egg
- Rhiannon – In Rhi’s Pantry
We made sure to take breaks from our painting to have a few drinks and eat our way through the platters. The patatas bravas (potatos with spicy tomato sauce) seemed to be a clear favourite!
Putting your own spin on the painting was encouraged, and most of us ended up with different silhouettes at the bottom. We had a prize for the most creative, kindly donated by Goodness, and that was won by Rhiannon for her Willow tree.
The following companies very generously supported this event by providing things for our goodie bags:
- Eau Thermale Avène
- Champagne Nail Bar & Spa
- Goodness Natural Beauty Lab
- Rangitikei Chicken
- Sweet Bites Cakes
- Tegel Chicken
Thank you so much to everyone who helped make the event such a success. Also a big thanks to everyone who has attended an event during the year, BrunchClub has been running for 3 and a half years now, and we would be nothing without our attendees.
Until next year,
Lena & Laura
