Blogosphere magazine.



Blogosphere magazine is a brand new publication written by bloggers, about bloggers, for bloggers. It’s tangible, in an almost entirely intangible industry. And I think it’s absolutely brilliant.

Sweet Poppy, from Poppy Loves, contacted me a few months ago to ask if I’d like to be featured in the first edition, and I’m pretty proud to have been included in such a swish publication alongside some of my favourite bloggers. I went along to the launch on Wednesday night with Tania, Freya and Michelle, and had the best fun. The event was held in the most gorgeous penthouse flat, about 15 minutes walk east of Waterloo. Seriously though, that flat. If I were an estate agent, I’d probably describe it as ‘A superbly spacious riverside dwelling, boasting a plethora of entertainment space and stunning views of the Thames, St.Paul’s cathedral and the city skyline.’ That little emoticon with the hearts instead of eyes sums it up just as well though. You know the one.


┬áThe magazine is *beautifully* designed, written, and collated, and features interviews (the darling Estee is the star of the first edition!), articles, advice columns, and recommendations from key food, lifestyle, travel, beauty & fashion bloggers on which blogs to read next. I’ve been a big fan of Estee’s since day one of discovering her blog and videos, and was maaaaaybe a little psyched when she recognised me from my blog after I went over to say hey, and she told me that she’d been reading Cider with Rosie just that morning! I tried to play it cool, but my inner dweeby fangirl did a little dance ;) So Estee, now you know!


^^ Took a while to get a half decent photo of the three of us at the party. This was one of the less successful ones. We call it ‘Tania and Freya are two friends having a nice chat, whilst a creepy weirdo tries to steal their magazine.’ ^^



Towards the end of the event, I started to get a little peckish. Canapes are great and all, but I dunno. Too small, too much fear of talking to cool people with a parsley-party going on in my teeth. And since great minds think alike and all, almost simultaneously Tania and I turned to one another and were like ‘Uhh…shall we…do you fancy….uhhh…burgers? Yep?’ So burgers we had. God bless Byron. God bless crispy onions. God bless Oreo milkshakes, quick service, blue cheese dip, and BBQ drenched burgers. We ate our burgers alongside a little post-party magazine reading, and laughed at the narcissism of sitting over dinner reading each other’s articles ;)


The hugest of thank yous to Blogosphere magazine (and Poppy especially!) for featuring Cider with Rosie in the first issue! It’s an absolute honour to be included :) If you’d like to pick up a copy of Blogosphere magazine (and I hand on heart recommend you do!) you can order one *here*.

    Oooo this looks exciting! Congratulations for being part of it! Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy – I was tempted to get the e-magazine so I could read it straight away but there’s something about a physical paper copy! How gorgeous does Estee look on the cover too?
