Last week at icelolly.com HQ, we hosted Blog At The Beach, our first event for bloggers.  We invited 34 bloggers to enjoy a day of networking, talks from travel industry specialists, a pop-up beach and a couple of cocktails from The Alchemist.  It was a day of fun, laughter and a lot of blogging chitter chatter and here's what everyone got up to...
