I was in New York with Gala during the summer of 2011 when we first started to talk about the possibility of doing some kind of blogging event together. I was already doing a workshop myself over here in the UK, but we started bashing about the idea of doing something much bigger.
However it wasn’t until we got together with Shauna in Vegas the following February that the idea of The Blogcademy really started to solidify. It’s funny, because apparently Gala and Shauna had been vaguely discussed doing something in the past too, it just needed the three headed monster (as we call ourselves!) to came together for it to actually happen!
With 27 in-person classes under our sparkly belts, it’s now so amazing to look back at how far we’ve come! November and December saw our second trip down under in as many years and the final three workshops of 2014: Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland.
Fair warning: This post is SUPER LONG but if you want to know exactly what we cover in the class, step-by-step, scroll to the end!
Sydney ended up being one of our biggest classes of the year! Forty amazing girls (and two guys!) joined us in the awesome Studio Soma in Surrey Hills. They were such an interesting group including multiple energy healers, a vet, and three (count ‘em!) pregnant women!
While I love to travel, it can be hard being away from home. But meeting girls like Michelle and Liza make it all worthwhile. I actually featured both their weddings (here and here) on the blog so meeting them in real life was super exciting!
Michelle was wearing one of my headpieces that I designed with Crown and Glory so we were instantly best friends!
