Well what a week it’s been for #Freefromfridays bloggers!
As many of you know, it was the Allergy and FreeFrom blog awards at the weekend and it was a wonderful weekend in Manchester. The awards were at the swanky Malmaison and it was great to meet up with lots of lovely bloggers, many whom I had only met online before.
Sadly, FreeFromFarmhouse didn’t win but our lovely #freefromfridays co-host LeCoinDeMel did! And so did three other brilliant bloggers who you will see on here regularly:
Parent Allergy Blog: Dairy Free Kids
Free From Recipes: Life With My Little Duck
Environmental: Le Coin De Mel
Allergy Blog Of The Year: Intolerant Gourmand
Congratulations to these ladies and everyone else who entered, was shortlisted or just keeps on doing what they do to spread the word about allergies.
Here are five fun facts I learnt about our brilliant bloggers:
Nina from EatAllergySafe runs her brilliant business all the way from Bulgaria!
Rebecca from Glutarama used to be a careers advisor at my local high school
Laura’s (DairyFreeKids) flight from Ireland cost less than my train from Bedfordshire
Kate makes all her beautiful recipes on Gluten Free Alchemist while having a full time job
Chloe from Adventures Of An Allergy Mummy got ‘Claude’ written on her morning coffee order!
But you know what I learnt most? That these friendships and connections we all make online stand up in the real world. It was wonderful to spend the evening with such an inspiring group of women (and a few men!) and celebrate all the good we are doing for ourselves, our families and everyone else facing the battle against allergies, intolerances and coeliac disesase.
And finally, I’ve been catching up on all your posts from last week and have to highlight this beautiful vegan layered angel cake from Peachicks’ Bakery. I want one!
