We laughed, we mingled, we ate good food and sipped drinks in an old bowling alley. It was the Bristol Bloggers Meet-Up, and all in all it was rather wonderful.
I met so many lovely people, including the amazingly talented Sophie from Crown and Glory (my train buddy!), the gorgeous and highly entertaining Paige Calvert (the lady behind the logo), the ever so sweet Lily from Red Brick Lipstick, the utterly adorable Amy from Mod Dolly, and the brains behind the event (and an all-round lovely person who understands my love of Disney holidays!) Steph from Stephanie Dreams. I also got to meet the lovely Chloe Lee again, a hugely talented photographer whose work just gets better and better and better!
It was such a vibrant, lively day. Everyone was immaculately turned out, and even when the rain came down the response was smiles and a sprouting mass of colourful umbrellas. It was so lovely to spend a day with such like-minded people, and everyone had their handful of stories to share. I had fun snapping away with Paige's Polaroid camera, and chatting away with Sophie on the train about all things floral and fabulous.
The cherry on top of what was lovely day had to be the goodie bags. So much care and effort had gone into putting these together, including a very generous donation by Room31. Somehow the contents of my bag multiplied throughout the course of the day, however I'm hardly going to complain about Lush goodies and glitter bows!
It's completely out of the blue, but I'm heading up London tonight for three days! Grant was offered a last minute work placement with a production team covering some Olympic goings on, so I'm going to wile away a few (hopefully sunny!) days wondering around London, and hopefully seeing a few people!
