ECMeetUp recap – Of unicorn horns and decadent pancakes

Pic2So we’re still reeling after having the best #ECMeetUp 2017 this side of the century! Yes, I am still pregnant – even though going into labor at a blogger conference would probably have made the event go viral (hello Facebook Live). But nope, my kid is still happily tucked away in moms tummy. He enjoyed all the amazing food that Ralph and Sarah, of The Plantation, fed our faces with. Uh can you say decadent pancakes (with just about every topping!) and a breakfast that made me feel as if I should have a title infront of my name (Lady Lu sounds good, right?) We were also blown away by the amazing sponsors – like, totally blown away… like so blown away that we have some to give to you too! But first, a ECMeetUp recap: (more…)

Meet the #ECMeetUp 2017 bloggers!

#ECMeetUp 2017Once upon a time, in a land far away, lived a group of exceptionally creative people who excelled in the art of ‘oversharing with style’. These people were called the #ECMeetUp 2017 bloggers. (more…)

2017 #ECMeetUp: Meet our guest speaker!

The stage has been set, the venue is booked and the guest speakers are a-prepping to give you the best 2017 #ECMeetUp this side of the equator!

In mid convo I spotted two young ladies, sitting close by, mocking us openly.  “Oooh she bloooogs!” I heard them jeer, judging us from a distance. It kinda pushed me over my chill limit. I mean, it’s not the first time that I hear a bunch of snotty comments being thrown at bloggers and social media influencers.

#ECMeetUp: No talk, just pics

ec-mini-meetup-4I know what you’re thinking: “Luchae, where are the #ECMeetUp pics?!!!”

Alright, I’m going to need everyone to calm down. The pics are here, as promised. They were taken by our beautiful Miriam Maulana of New Kid on the Block Photography and she will vouch that great things take time! As we end off this amazing blogging year (I know that we’re still in September… give me this moment to be dramatic, for the love pete!) we’d just like to say, once again, that it’s been awsome hanging out with you guys. Our group of EC bloggers is steadily growing and we are most def seeing more love from brands and businesses. PE is NOT the armpit of South Africa, Gareth Cliff!

Anyways, as I conclude my monologue, just a reminder that there are some more photeees, over at JustEllaBella, for your oohing and aaahing pleasure.

Right, let’s get to it then: (more…)
