So I spent the weekend in that there London for Cybher and oh my godfathers what a weekend. I started to draft this post yesterday on the train home but my mind was buzzing with so many ideas that I just couldn’t get the words down. The same applies today really so I hope that this isn’t too much of a ramble! Ha! But it was such an awesome event, in fact so awesome that awesome isn’t a big enough word for it!
I met so many great people on the day. Some bloggers I had met before and it was so lovely to see them again and some I met for the very first time. It is so nice to be able to put faces to names after speaking online, in some cases for years! But it was great to meet completely new-to-me bloggers too. I love that Cybher brings together so many different bloggers from parenting to fashion, beauty to tech, craft to lifestyle, you name it – everybody is there! I think this definitely adds to the vibrancy of the day. To be in the company of so many amazing women is just, well, incredibly inspiring. There is so much that we can learn from each other when we come together in such a unique way like Cybher.
The event itself was run like absolute clockwork. Hats off to the whole of Team Cybher you did an incredible job! From the smooth registration, to the free-flowing drinks throughout the day and the amazing lunch. In fact, the lunch was so amazing that I had one of everything. Greedy? Moi? *cough*
The sessions all sounded so good that I must admit that I struggled to decide which ones to go to in advance and just decided on the day. I have to say that I enjoyed every single one of them but I will write about the sessions in a separate post because there is so much that I learnt and want to share. I must say that there was a really nice flow throughout the day, as in the day was busy but never felt manic. Of course you could skip sessions altogether and just hang downstairs and get a coffee but I honestly didn’t feel the need.
There were breaks throughout the day so I still had plenty of time to chat and see the sponsors. Oh, and have my eyebrows done by the lovely girls at the BrowHaus stand! Ha! I loved that the sponsors were very much in the background though and it was up to you if you even wanted to say hello. It was all so lovely and chilled.
I went to the very first Cybher in 2012 and enjoyed it so much that as soon as the tickets went on sale for this year, there was no question of whether I would go again this year. In fact, I knew that it would be the only conference for me in 2013. But this year’s Cybher was even better – I’m still a bit awe-struck by it all to be honest! It’s quite hard to put into words just what an inspiring day it was but I know from the excited grins that I saw everywhere and the unbelievable buzz that followed on social media that so many others came away feeling just the same way. I spent the whole day thinking now this is how you run a blogging conference! Well, that and when can we do this all again?!
