Just A Little Instameet Announced 13.09.18

For a while now I have wanted to host my very own ‘Instameet’ – an organised social event for Instagrammers who share a similar passion and interest. My brand, ‘Just A Little Build’ (and I use the term brand, loosely here!), started out in June 2016 solely as a build blog – sharing our house build journey and experiences as a family. Since then, it has developed into much, much more and can now be described as an Interiors and Lifestyle blog with a reputable, active Instagram presence. Over the last two years, I have met some wonderful people via Instagram and had the privilege of working with some fantastic brands. So I thought, why not bring together some of the people that I have met along the way and the brands that I love and have in my home, and host my very own Just A Little Instameet.This event has been designed to bring together like-minded people and wonderful brands for a day of all things interiors, home and lifestyle. It is an opportunity to meet both big brands and small brands, interact with industry professionals and share your passion for interior design and lifestyle.

    Hi SJ,

    I know I’m to late for this event & my sister could not make this date, and we would be travelling from Ireland so a bit of planing….. I’m hoping you may do another event soon. So sorry to be missing this as I just love your home and stories,
    Best of luck on the day.
