Everyone's A Winner Baby

It's true, the Birmingham blogger meet was such a fun day so big thaks again to Fritha and Claire for organising it all. And another thankyou to the oh so generous Tesco for uniting me with this playsuit, I love it, I feel like a glamourous mechanic and i won't even try to explain how comfy it is.

Playsuit - Clothing at Tesco
Cardigan - h&m
Necklace - Primark


I'll try not to ramble on too much but despite nerves (I'm definitly a words on paper/laptop screen gal) I trained it to Birmingham where I met some fabulous folk who all looked uh-maz-ing. We starbuck'sed we shopped, we ate, we drank cocktails and we got stared at by a lot of Birmingham. I'm glad (and geekily proud of myself) I went - luckily there wasn't too many cringe moments waiting to jump out at me once I was lulled into feeling secure, I did have a bit of a moment in Starbucks with those little flasks but I'm hoping no one saw....seems I was channeling Dr Seuss there.
It was also great to finally get to see people in the flesh after tweeting them and stalking them reading their blogs. I got to chat to Maria, Char (who somehow managed to walk around bham in very high heels - jel), Danni, Elizabeth, Joy, Louise, Hayley, Gem, and Florrie. Selina who looked stunning and won best dressed bought us all some Motel goodies and Sara came loaded with missguided treats! Along with THE yellow bags Fritha brought from Max C London it was like a mass bloggers birthday. I only managed to briefly speak to Gem, Emma, Lily, Rebecca, Emma, Michelle, and Hattie but if another meet is ever on the cards I'm there fo sho.
Ok I said I wouldn't ramble and I have, here's some of my appaling iphone snaps from the day.






P.s Is anyone else as tragic as me and a bit intimidated by mac counters? I didn't even understand the process of buying there?! It was super busy though.

  1. Glad you girls had a nice time :) It's great that so many of you managed to make it. Is there ever any big blogger meets? I know that IFB hosts a big event in America every year but I've never seen one for the UK? Maybe we should get that started?? Like a giant bloggers xmas party?? x

  3. Looks like you had fun! :) I love the outfit, it's sooooo cute!

    Yes, I'm intimidated by MAC counters. Plus I prefer Urban Decay, and Stila over MAC anyways :)

  5. Ahh my face is on your blog! Had a fab time yesterday, was lovely to meet you! Hope you enjoyed it too. I was completely intimidated by Mac counters along with most of the bloggers there, so you weren't on your own! Hope we can do it again sometime x x x

  7. Yay! Yesterday was a great night for me, I really did enjoy dinner and only regret that I didn't arrive sooner to be able to speak with everyone more! If you're ever in Birmingham again, do give us a tweet. I'm up for coffee any day!

    Also - I HATE Mac counters. I find the assistants are always really rude.

  11. I really don't like Mac counters - they always play the music so loud that you can't hear yourself think, nor can you hear what everyone else is saying. The girls at the gateshead branch are always more concerned with touching up on their own make up than helping. It's so annoying because 99% of my make up is Mac and I don't even enjoy the shopping experience. :( xxx

  13. Love the playsuit! The meet up looks like it was a lot of fun!

  14. I think MAC and other make up counters are highly variable, and they do tend to be worst when it's busy. Depends on the individual make up guys and girls too.

    Love that playsuit on you and such a lovely post :) I really hope there's another meet soon to get to talk to everyone properly! Such a good day.

  18. Ooh I love that playsuit! I got a peach dress which I'm wearing today but is a teeny bit too big for me. I refuse to give up on it though because it's such a nice colour!
    I'm going to pop back into Birmingham later on this week to have a proper look at the MAC counter..and maybe some others!
    It was great to meet you, we should definitely do it again!! xx
