Into The West Blogger Network were thrilled once again to work alongside Goldenegg Productions on another Fashion Trail in Galway. Not unlike the last two, this event was a huge success! Twenty Into The West Blogger Network bloggers attended the eight mini fashion shows all over the city throughout the day.
Into the West Blogger Network joined Goldenegg Productions and Athlone's leading retailers as they hosted free pop-up fashion shows throughout the day. Retailers featured the work of local designers in their shows with dazzling window displays as everyone enjoyed a truly unique fashion experience.
As Into The West Blogger Network nears is 2nd Birthday, we decided it would be a nice idea to do an informal meet up, a focus group type event to chat to the bloggers and digital influencers in the network and get some feedback. We couldnt think of anywhere better to have this little meet up then as the brand new co-working office space in the heart of Galway City - SuperPIxel Labs.

After our mini #itwbnBloggerEvent at 56 Central in Galway two weeks ago, I was ready for the main event! With our last [big] event being waaaay back in May [we had a mini cocktail event at the Harbour Hotel just before summer!] both Sinéad and I were more than ready for our next event. All summer we had been plotting and planning the Afternoon Tea at the Glenlo Abbey Hotel with special guest speaker Erika Fox / Retro Flame.
Last week, the Into The West Blogger Network bloggers were invited along to the most stylish new restaurant in Galway City – 56 Central. 56 Central is where Lynches Cafe stood for many years on Shop Street at the very heart of Galway. Lynch’s closed its doors on May 2nd and re-opened as 56 Central earlier this year, under the ownership of Gill Carroll, who also owns the successful 37 West in Newcastle.
Every few months, ITWBN gets a bit of an itch for a meet up so we throw a cockail mixer for all about blogger babes! We had done this before at the House Hotel which, both times has been super! This time, the Harbour Hotel invited us down for some cocktail madness instead so off we went!
