#98 The SITC photo diary

Hello lovelies, last weekend I finally got the chance to go to Summer in the City -the UK's largest youtube convention, after having wanted to go for about three years!
I had the best time and after doing a poll on twitter (@neverlandvicki) and everyone voted yes to a photo diary - let's go!!



















Saturday...

On the Saturday we (being Jonna and I) had one meet and greet and we also attended the booktube panel which was so inspiring especially as I'm trying to introduce a lot more book blogging posts on my blog!













The first person we met was Jamie Jo (BananaJamana on youtube) and she was just as lovely as I imagined she would be! I also met Sophie (SophieBelle on youtube.

I also met Connie (Noodlerella on youtube) who I actually ended up meeting four times, we're mutuals on various social media sites and she recognised me so each time we met we talked like we'd been friends for years (I'm still in shock about the whole thing haha)























We also met Bertie Gilbert and Savannah Brown who despite being exhausted spent ages chatting to everyone who came to their merch stand!


Our first meet and great of the weekend was with my favourite youtubers - Connie (noodlerella) Kelsey Ellison, Beckii Cruel and Abi (Abipop) - again these girls were so sweet and even handed out little presents to everyone who met them (chocolates and a Galaxy Squad badge) which was honestly so kind of them!

Abipop, Kelsey, Jonna, me, Connie and Beckii




















Sunday...
On Sunday we had two meet and greets, went to a panel about the differences between UK and US content creators and kinda just mooched around at the various different stalls.






















Our second meet and greet of the weekend was with Tom Burns and Jamie Jo - again like all the youtubers we met this weekend these two were so lovely and friendly!

Our second meet and greet was with Connie and Evan Edinger who we had so much fun with my photos literally never fail to make me smile!










































To see the weekend in better detail feel free to check out both of Jonna's vlogs!


Me, Kelsey and Connie
























It was honestly an amazing two days and I'm so thankful that every youtuber I met were happy to talk to everyone and were so polite and friendly because there was rumours about some being rude to their viewers (not cool guys)
