Blogger Meet Up Events | UK


Hello and welcome to my blog if you've never been here before and if you have then thank you for coming back! 

Today I want to introduce a really exciting project that I want lots of you to get involved in. I'm sure many of you are aware; during summer I have been looking for bloggers with dressing tables to photograph to create a book. It was a great story and all the planning was going exceptionally well, however, I, unfortunately, don't have the financial resources to travel all over the UK to 20+ houses within 10 weeks. This means that I've had to adapt my story and my idea to the best of my ability. 

My new idea is as follows: Bloggers in Coffee Shops. 

This will quite possibly even be the title of my book. I want to keep it as simple as possible but really explore online friendships and who you are behind the screen. 

My aim is to create around 7+ meetups in coffee shops all over the UK. The location will depend on what is most accessible to the majority. I want as many people to be involved as possible! I then would love the opportunity to take your portrait in the coffee shops and document the interaction between everyone. I want to show what happens offline and what happens in the coffee shop. 

Now I've got the super exciting and important part out of the way I'll introduce myself a little more and explain what this project is for etc. 

I've just started my 3rd year at university studying Editorial and Advertising Photography. This book will be a huge part of my Final Major Project and will be displayed at our London Degree Show in May 2018. I am currently based between Bristol and Cheltenham and willing to travel to get the right images for my book!

Your portrait will appear in the book alongside your blog URL and a little information about yourselves and your blog. 

I love being part of the blogging community so this is something I really want to explore whilst creating so many new amazing friendships. 

As of yet, I haven't planned any locations or dates or who is involved! If you would like to be involved could I ask that you please send an email to 'contact@hannahtapscott.com' with your name, location (where would be best for the meet-up place for you, or if you're willing to travel a little) and your blog URL. This information is so I can keep a database of people. I want you because you're a blogger and not what your blog looks like, you can be a newbie or part of the community for years, everyone is welcome! 

If there is something I haven't covered or if you've got any questions you want to ask, then  please feel free to comment below, drop me an email or tweet me (@BlogAboutHanney)

I really hope lots of you get involved because there's so many of you that I would love to meet and I feel this is a really great opportunity! I'd hugely appreciate any help, support, and promotion with this project! 

I look forward to hearing from you soon! Thank you! 

- Love always, Hanney

My In-Flight Essentials | Travel


Hello lovelies,

As you're reading this I'm currently sunning myself and exploring the beautiful city of Milan with my best friend. I decided to get ahead and schedule some blog posts for you to read whilst I'm away. I thought there's nothing better than sharing with you my In-Flight Essentials. I strangely really enjoy reading these posts and thought you might too! It's a helpful guide for me to use as a travel checklist when packing my bag as well. 

As I'm going to be exploring the city which involves lots of walking I thought it would be a good idea to take a backpack, something comfortable for me to carry around also allowing me to have my hands free so I can use my camera. I've decided to use this backpack as my hand luggage as it fits the perfect amount inside. My backpack is from Primark for £9 and it's a gorgeous blush pink colour with a rose gold coloured buckle to keep everything secure.


Here's a list of important things which are going to be inside my hand luggage:

Passport and Travel Documents 
I like to be super organised with all my documents that I need so that nothing gets lost and it's easy and accessible to find. I bought this gorgeous pink and rose gold folder (have you noticed my theme yet?) This will keep everything together such as my passport, boarding passes, insurance details and currency. 

Electricals
Being a photographer, of course, I'm taking my camera. No one goes on holiday without one now, do they! I'm taking my Canon 600D with a few different lenses including; 18-55mm, 50mm and 35mm. I'm also taking my Polaroid camera and a photo album to store my Polaroids in whilst I'm away. I've also decided to take my iPad Mini so I can keep up to date with social media and things whilst I'm away. 




Next, come things which are essential bits and bobs but don't really come under a category. Things like:

- Wet Wipes 
- Headphones
- Reading Book 
- Lip Balm 
- Sweets, Water, Magazine (usually bought at the airport)
- Hand Sanitiser 
- Perfume Atomiser 
- Rescue Remedy
- Sunglasses 
- Purse
- Notebook and Pen 

There isn't much else to it really! My flight is only 2 hours long so I imagine it will go by quite fast, as well as having Amy to talk to the whole way!


A short but sweet post today, what things do you take in your hand luggage?
