UKPA Big Meet 2016

Why did it have to end?


I had been waiting for this day since 29th April 2016 as that was the day I purchased my golden ticket. I still ask myself how after they sold out in an incredible 4 minutes. Crazy!

The event wasn’t actually until 1st October so the countdown began. We were all very excited and preparations and planning (of course) were well under way. Decorating my planner was a must!

On the day we all took our seats as there was a table plan and sitting in front of us were name lanyards, paperclips and a HUGE gift bag. Wow! Lucky Girl. I was on Table 4 and I could not have asked for a better group of girls to be sat with. We have formed friendships that I know will last a lifetime.

The day started with an introduction from the lovely Steph and Beverley which was then followed by the founder of Kikki.K Kristina Karlsson. Kristina imparted her 11 rules she lives by. They were very inspirational and she certainly had 100 women hanging on every word. It was a pleasure to be in her company and I felt very honoured and proud with my Kikki K planner sitting in front of me.

The girls certainly ran a smooth ship and the day was flowing with lots of smiles and very happy women. The day continued with lots of shopping at all the stalls that came to the event and a huge planner stack. Of course no planner meet can be complete without one. This certainly was the biggest one I have seen. It was EPIC.

How could I forget the UKPA awards? Before the event we all got to vote who we thought was most deserving of different categories ranging from Most Dedicated Planner (Sheree Wilson), Small Business of the Year (Chocho and Mimi) and silly ones like Dirtiest Mind which was won by the lovely Dani from our table. #table4forever.

Reflecting on the day I had an amazing time and memories that will last forever and I will obviously journal about. I have met so many amazing women who I can call friends.

I cannot wait to see what 2017 brings. I just know it will be even bigger and better if that is at all possible.
