    What a bunch of hotties.

    1. Lizzi

      and it was especially nice of you to invite that random chick with the straight hair.

  2. Tammy

    Looks like you guys had a great time and I hope to make it along for the next one.

    awww I am so sad to have missed this! Who would have thought that the one weekend I escape Canberra there is a Canberra bloggy meet up!

    Oh my goodness, you gorgeous creature – you look amazing with straight hair!!!
    And who can look THAT good while recovering from the flu???

    How did the singing go for your grandparents? I hope your voice didn’t let you down?

    YAY!!! Bestie, what a fabulous post you have written indeed. You’ve perfectly captured the awesomeness of the gathering, and the wonderful new friends we can all now say we have. However, one complaint bestie darlin…. not a mention of the highly toxic Oven & Grill Cleaner that was flushed out into the restaurant for all us to breath in…. Wait… I mentioned it. 🙂 Perhaps that was what striped the sickness that had captured your vocals, hence your voice returning this fine day?!
    Thanks for the shout out re Always Fabulous Events coming soon!.
    Hugs to you lovely. Xxx

    I appreciate the juxtaposition of your sleek, business-like attire with the tattoos to the right.

  8. Adrian (Food Rehab)

    Looks like you guys had a ball! And who wouldn’t with all that food! Great to meet other bloggers in person.

  9. Agnes

    Oooh straight hair – looking terribly elegant there! (Fortunately, we know the truth about you) 😉

    Fuuun! I love meeting people in real life. Much as I am a fan o’ the curl, your straightened hair looks gorgeous! So shiny! Caramel tart looks good, definitely worth forging a friendship for the promise of a forkful.

    PS I had to say how I could have COURAGE and EXCELLENCE in my interview today!!!!

  13. Jen

    I had no idea there were so many Canberra bloggers out there! Looking forward to reading up on all of your blogs 🙂

  14. Libby

    You look HOT(er than usual) with straight hair! :d

  15. Melissa @ Honey Bee Books

    It was lovely to meet such a great bunch of people! Like, Anna, I think watching the kitchen being hosed down and wondering about the many bowls of pasta on the bench while said hosing was happening was also a highlight! I am looking forward to the next catch up.

  16. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Your hair looks gorgeous Hannah! do you wear it straight a lot? 😀

  17. msihua

    WHO is this straight laced hair woman?! WHAT have you done with HANNAH?? Hahahaha… looking fabulous there my dear!

  18. Errign

    I would say ploppage is most definitely a word!

  19. Louise

    What a fabulous opportunity to meet up! Easy to tell that you were an organizer- meeting up for dessert.

  20. Johanna GGG

    First thing I noticed was your hair – I come from a family of sisters obsessed with whether hair is straight or curly (I don’t care enough – I missed out on the hair gene just like I missed out on the tidy gene) – what’s with the glam hair when you are feeling sick – was it to pep you up or it is the new office hannah look! OK maybe I have more hair gene than I think! The bloggers get together looks great – yummy cake and lots of fun!

  21. Christine (Merf)

    Your life is full of such rich desserts. Now, go take a shower and fluff up that curly hair of yours!!! xo

  22. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    As much as I love your usual ringlets, you look DARLING with straightened hair too! So sleek 😉

  23. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    How fun to do a blogger meet-up over desserts! They really were keen on that cold fruit ploppage weren’t they? It’s on everything!

  24. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Your hair looks really pretty when it’s straight! I have naturally curly / wavy hair, but it looks like a total mess when I leave it natural, so I straighten it pretty much every day. I would love to have your curls!

  25. Emma

    That fruit mixture is sha-nasty. How can anything look that gross?? But those tattoos look… sha-tasty. I was excited to find out that the tattoo-ee over there was a blogger (I was waging my bets). Watch out, blog-based stereotypes: Canberra’s breakin’ ’em!

    Nobody can straighten hair like the salon ladies, I can’t even come close. But that’s probably because I haven’t spent over $100 on my straightener, hmm?

  26. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    What a fun afternoon! Although I’m sorry you were still too sick to fully enjoy the cake options…and most certainly agree that ploppage on fruit tarts is not desirable. At all.

    I am also impressed that you straightened your hair whilst unwell! I normally can’t be bothered even when well, and my hair is only wavy rather than curly 🙂 It looks lovely both ways – but definitely much longer straight!

  27. Rach

    How fun is this! Wish I lived closer, I would’ve loved being there for this.

    Also that’s hilarious that people couldn’t find you with your hair straightened! Haha!

  28. Cait's Plate

    Oh my gosh I’m DYING over this post! So much to drool over, so little time!

    Looks like you had a blast 🙂

  29. Priyanka

    Blogger meet ups are fun. I like your straightened hair Hannah!

  30. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    wow I wish I could join all of you beautiful people from down-undahhhh!! you guys all look so happy and like you’re having fun~and your hair looks gorgeous!! you look sooo different I was like, “oh who’s that?” 😛

  31. Heidi Ross

    First, Hannah you look fabulous with straight hair, second I had no idea Lizzy had a blog..It’s hilarious!

    1. Lizzi

      Thanks Heidi 🙂 I’m only funny because I’m powered by chocolate…. therefore really YOU’RE the one responsible 😉

  32. Kayla

    That looks like a totally wonderful time!! You look so sweet and pretty with your straight hair. I would have used your locks as a guide too – it’s that distinctive:)

  33. chopinandmysaucepan

    Looks like a lot of fun, wonder if the topic of conversation was around food 🙂

  34. InTolerantChef

    Thanks for organising a fun afternoon guys! Yes, the chemical cleaner-induced asthma attack was not much fun, but the rest of it was! Great to meet you guys.

  35. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Aww. I want to attend a blogger meetup as well! 😯

  36. GirlonRaw
