Healthy Living Gathering

Healthy Living Gathering: We want to know what you think!

A few of us have started to investigate the potential to hold a UK healthy living bloggers event (similar to the Healthy Living Submmit that takes place in the U.S) It’s very early days yet, but we wanted to post about it so that we could see how many of you would be interested in taking part!

There are 4 of us trying to organise things at the moment: Emily from Sparkle and Shade, Laura from Keeping Healthy Getting Stylish, Emma from Coming Up Easy and me, Laura from Box, Run, Eat.

At the moment we are looking at a possible date of the 8th and 9th October 2011.

If you would be interested in attending an event like this please send an email to with the following information:
  • Venue preference: Leeds / Manchester / Nottingham
  • How much you would be willing to pay for a ticket

We know it will be difficult to find a venue that suits everyone, but we have tried to keep the options as central and affordable as possible. If you'd like to come but can't make that weekend, please still get in touch - the date isn't set in stone, the main thing we need to find out is how many of you would be interested in coming along!

We really hope that some of you would like to join us at an event, it would be lovely to meet you all! This isn’t just restricted to bloggers either, anyone that’s interested could come along.

If you’re on Twitter, make sure you’re following @HLG11 for all the latest info and updates over the next few months.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Emily, Laura, Emma and Laura x


  1. Sounds like a great idea! I'm actually doing my first half marathon on the 9th, so I wouldn't be able to make that weekend :-(
    I'll send in an e-mail about it anyways.

  2. i love that idea too! can't pick a location though... i'm yet to know where on earth i'll be by that point! hopefully i'll stay where i am as of today :) then can maybe put london into the pot...

  3. Hi Laura!

    HLB summit sounds interesting! I'd defo be up for it if I can work out timing with my course, deadlines and shifts. Manchester would be ideal x but they're all so far away! :)

  4. Such a great idea! Location is tricky, but I guess you cannot please everyone!

  5. Meant to comment on this when I was reading the post on Keeping Healthy Getting Stylish - think it's an absolutely excellent idea! I will probably be out of commission in October as I'll be getting my surgery around then and imagine I will not be setting foot outside the door apart from getting doctor's certs! I would definitely be up for travelling to England apart from that otherwise so I hope it goes well and there's more. If I was a voter I'd be saying Manchester but probably because Manchester sounds like it would have other things to do/see as well. No offence to Leeds and Nottingham I'm sure they have lots of nice things as well but Manchester would be bigger so more shops n' sh1t!!
