Brunching With a Tweet of Bloggers.

by Lori Dwyer on August 6, 2011 · 14 comments


We do remember, when I went to Melbourne a little while back? Pay attention, there may just be a pop quiz later.

Anyway. While I was there, I was lucky enough to attend the Blogger’s Brunch- an awesome brunch, sponsored by Weight Watchers, complete with motivational speakers, good coffee, delicious food and….

A whole Tweet of bloggers. (Yep, that’s the new collective noun, I have decided).

I got to check out and pick up some very cool samples and products from some awesome companies- Blackmores gave me vitamins (including the much needed Women’s De-Stress Pills), Garnier gave me moisturising cream and their caffeinated, tinted eye roll on- product of the century.

Million Dollar Woman filled me in on there product- stay at home mums, head over to their site to find out how much you are worth- and Homedics sent me home with a shoulder massager.

Most of these goodies have been passed on as extras to random winners of the Big ThankYou GiveAway… if you did win, look out for surprises in your prizes, which are going out in the next week.

Higlight of the day was, for me, motivational speaker Ms Money. The woman is a financial planner witha thing for expensive shoes. This works, yes?

And lowlight of the day waaaaaas… turning up late. As usual. And missing the introduction for the motivaional speakers. And thinking that Melinda Gainsford- Tayler…..

….was actually Tina Gray.

We can totally see the resembalance, yes? Yes.

And giving her that “Hi, we know each other” smile when she was on stage. And getting na-da back. And wondering what the hell was going on. And then feeling like a dick when I realised my mistake.

Duh, Lori.

Whatever. Super fun time had by all. And a huge thanks to Weight Watchers for granting a wish for me…. $500 worth of petrol, to help with the constant travel back and forth from the suburbs. That balancing act to keep myself sane.

Photos thanks to the luciously vain Danimezza.

I love it when motivational speakers come to our school and try to spread good word about something. Thank you very much and have a nice day.

Glad you got a wish granted Lori – and sounds like such an awesome event, wish I could have been there..!

Haha I love Tina 's choc gold medals, the others are useless. So glad you won a wish.

Tina's chocolate gold medals would so work for me. HILARIOUS!!

That's awesome, Lori!

It was great, wasn't it? I yelled out hi to you (your back was turned, lol) as you were going through the crowd, but you didn't hear me:) I think being such a crowded area, it's bound to happen, and there was so little time to talk to everyone!

Glad you won the wish! I missed hearing who got what

Yay! so happy to hear about your free petrol. also extremely happy that you say "petrol" because I find that adorable. Over here we say "gas" which is pretty lame.


Mumma’s Mini Mes – Kym August 6, 2011 at 9:54 pm

I didn't get to meet you Lori, maybe next time. It was so busy and the time flew, congrats on the $500 very nice, no one likes to pay for petrol.

I'm so glad I got to meet you at the bloggers brunch! Hope to see you again xx


Georgia August 6, 2011 at 8:27 pm

I can totally see how you made the mistake. I have to say, Tina looks a lot more friendly though. Score on the $500 worth of free petrol, it would definitely make all that travel a lot easier, especially with the price of petrol these days.

When you got there and sat right in front of me but just out of poking reach I was doing the "TURN AROUND AND LOOK AT ME" stare, boring in to the back of your skull. I need to work on my psychic communications sills.


Tina Gray August 6, 2011 at 7:53 pm

I'm so glad that I was able to go to that bloggers brunch and listen to those inspiring women speak.

I love ya, Lori, but that was so freakin' funny! Oh yes, and I have gold medals too. Only mine have chocolate inside ;) xx


Grace August 6, 2011 at 7:52 pm

Ha ! It's an easy mistake to make. But we all know Tina is much nicer :)
Well done on the sweet petrol deal. I'm sure that really helps.

Lol. I am guilty of doing that smile thing to Emma at the bloggaroke. She smiled politely back and left the room quickly. I sat there thinking "OMG she hates me. I've scared her off!" Before realising she would not have a CLUE that I am me, so I rudely interrupted her a short time after and introduced myself.
$500 worth of petrol is a pretty sweet deal!
