Motel Rocks & Glossybox Event

My blog turned 2 on Thursday and what better way to celebrate than to hope on a train to London (after faffing about and failing to find my booking confirmation) to oggle at nice clothes and mingle with other bloggers who I've stalked followed for a while.




Me, Rebecca, Dina & Lucy

Rebecca & Sophie

After meeting the lovely Rebecca and Dina at Euston we squeezed onto a cramped tube to Oxford Circus, got lost a little bit trying to find the Whistles pess day, got a little bit snubbed at said press day, then made our way to Motel where we were faced with so many bloggers! Being the Nervous Nelly I am I was actually a little overwhelmed but the girls I did manage to speak to were all lovely and the Mojito helped ease my nerves a little.
I'm a big Motel fan and fell in love with pretty much everything I saw and found myself being drawn to anything leopard print, the oh so generous Motel ladies allowed every blogger at the event to pick out an item from the new collection and even arranged sweets and candyfloss on tap - pretty much paradise for me! The Glossybox team were also there with a tower of irresistable Lola's cupcakes which I found an impossible feat trying to eat in a ladylike fashion so instead hoovered up in one, so apologies to anyone who happened to glance over and saw this not-so-pretty site : /

Overall it was a great night and huge thanks to everyone at Motel and Selina for inviting me, big kudos of the night goes to the lovely lady on the door - it was quite chilly!

I didn't manage to take many photos through the sea of bloggers but here's some of my favourite items from the new collection, I'm sensing a pattern with the print...

    Thank you the lovely comment about my hair, your hair looks like it'd be long enough to dip dye, in my opinion as long as the colour starts at your chin or lower it'll look good, like this :) xx
