On Sunday I attended the ROOTS PR – Press Event for Bloggers, Vloggers and Influencers. This was an event that was held at a warm venue in Amsterdam and in attendance was some of the best coloured Blogger, Vloggers and Influencers in the Netherlands. It was a great experience getting to meet some of beautiful people I have been following and never met in person some of them include the following J’adoreMyCurls, This Girl’s Black Book and Black Loves Gold.
During this event 3 workshops were held; ‘How to earn money with your Blog’ followed by ‘From Blog to Vlog’ and then ‘SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)’ . Each of the workshops was conducted by experts in the area and they shared a lot of valuable information. I made sure and took notes and marked down all important information shared.
One of the main points that I took from these workshops and the event itself is that it is important to stand strong in what I share on my blog and in vlogs. It was also shared that networking and connecting with likeminded Bloggers and Vlogger. And that it is not about me wanting to be found but more about the fact of finding the target group. Overall I must say that the event was a success and I am looking forward to what is to come in the near. And then not forgetting the goodie bag we received at the end of the event… It was great! SOoOoOo many different hair, skin care and beauty products. This was one of the best goodie bags I have received at any event and will be doing reviews on the products I received.
Below I have added some images that I took during the day!

So my 23rd Birthday was on Thursday DECEMBER 10th and like every year I get very emotional days leading up to my birthday. Being away from family, previous memories of my birthday and even the feeling of being alone. I know that it is not good to feel like that on my birthday and I should be happy for the extra year and for even life itself but usually I do not feel like that (another time I will make a post about emotions)….
For my birthday this year I got to see my new home that I will be getting next year and then I spent time with friends and family. It was great to get to see my house because this will be my first ‘Home’ while living in the Netherlands. I usually live with someone (not really) but it is really complicated to explain to people because the person was never home. So I actually lived alone.
About a month before my birthday I searched on Pintrest for a cake inspiration because a birthday is not complete without a fab cake! 🙂 The one I picked I sent to a couple from Saba that is living in the Netherlands. They have their own catering service called Love & Food Catering. You should check them out if you live here their creations look amazing but also taste deliciously. What I got was a double layered vanilla cake with white chocolate butter cream frosting in the turquoise colour and a dozen red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing topped with a cherry (YUMMY) Their red velvet is AMAZING, so soft and velvety. Their prices are also very much affordable and can be found on their website.
So for this week’s weekly obsession is my ever so yummy birthday cake and cupcakes.
Below I have added some pictures of my treats for you my lovely readers to visually enjoy. Don’t forget to check out LOVE & FOOD CATERING on FB as well & place your order.
