#xmasbloggermeet






Lyzi's cute little squashed face / Kim the drunk, haha! / Myself and Abby looking like absolute stunners / Annoying Lyzi is one of my favourite past times / 1 cubicle 2 toilets = mind blown! / Stunners fo lyf. Having fun with Abby / Forget about these drunk snaps on my camera - oh, the hilarity! / Lipsticks!

What an absolute whirlwind! I keep getting sweeps of fresh nostalgia *hello oxymoron* every time I look at snaps from the #xmasbloggermeet. It was definitely one of those nights that was so insanely surreal that it makes you question whether or not it truly happened! Although, that may be down to the consumption of a bottle of fruit cider followed by numerous cocktails and a glass of wine....Woops!!

The day started out pretty horrendously when my bank would only let me withdraw £10 from my account meaning I've spent over 200 smackeroonies on Christmas presents (BIG FAT FML!). This was then followed by a missed train, much to mine and Sammy's dismay, which was then followed by a wait in the rain soaked car park! We eventually got there after about a million rants on my behalf (sorry Sammy!) and took off to Park Street's Nandos for some much needed chicken. Honestly, we were starved! We were greeted by the ever lovely Lyzi, Leanne, Gemma and Vicky and indulged in a good natter over our food. I'd met the majority before but it was lovely to see Vicky as I'd read her blog for a rather long time. I wish I'd got the chance to natter to her more but surprisingly, I am actually quite shy when it comes to new people! Saying that, naturally, I spoke too much and attempted to fill any silence that tried to creep up on the table! I need some sort of therapy, granted. A quick cuddle with the gorgeous and immensely awesome Ayden (I LOVE YOU!) and we were headed to the hotel for a chill out sesh with our alcohol stash before getting ready for the night ahead.

It was awesome to finally meet Abby of Abbbbbzwaaa fame and to meet the beautiful Steph who is as lovely as she seems! We all sat about in our hotel room chatting about various things and we also messed about creating quite a hilarious vlog where I perfectly impersonated my bed partner for the evening, Lyzi. Honestly, I don't think I will ever stop loving that girl. She is a gem. All of the girls looked bloody gorgeous in their party gear and definitely made me want to just lock the door and weep! Definitely not the place to bring your insecurities, haha. After god knows how many mirror minutes we headed to Java in search of other bloggers and the MyStreetChic angels! I was surprised at just how many people were there and it was so awesome to look around a room and see so many faces that you're used to seeing. Admittedly, I didn't talk to as many new people as I could because I was mega scared :/ I get really worried that I come off a little mental to start with so I just mulled around hoping people would come up to me! I did, however, grab JK for a chat because I did feel as if it was my duty to save one of the few males from a sea of unruly women, haha. It was also lovely to relieve Cherry of her duties for a moment to hijack MyStreetChic's twitter and to chat to her. She only lives down the road from me so hopefully I'll be able to meet up with her again for a longer discussion in the new year. After being grabbed for a horrendously cringe worthy chat (on my behalf) with the spectacular Gina it was time to head onto the dancefloor for a fashion show from Boohoo.com. 


*photos above courtesy of Steph - don't you think the second one looks like the cover of a blogger's Christmas single?

 I managed to chat to Emma for a little bit who was looking gorgeous in her dress! I wish we'd been able to natter more but the fashion show began! Hopefully, I'll be able to meet her again at some point. It was bloody lovely to get a long natter in with the gorgeous Ayden. I love that girl so bloody much! Honestly, if they ever decide to clone humans, they need to clone her first so that I can have my very own Ayden 24/7. She is a diamond. The fashion show showcased a selection of different looks and there were a few pieces in there that I definitely wouldn't have minded to find in my wardrobe. Massive congrats to Lyzihead for winning her flowers. She puts clothes on nearly seven days a week so she truly deserved that award. (I'm only messing by the way). The event soon came to an end (why does time fly when you're having fun?!) so we headed back to the hotel with a poorly Ayden for a few hours of hotel chats. I sat in the bathroom looking after my wee nipper Ay because she was rather poorly - we now know it was food poisoning!! Admittedly, I was a little sneaky because I used her state to sit and cuddle her for a long time - haha. Taking advantage of a situation? Yes, slightly. The night ended with a mass of cheesy chips consumed in the bath (I LOVE YOU LYZI), hotel room chats, a confused self, double bed fun, a rather drunken Kim and a sick Abby

MyStreetChic, boohoo.com, all the companies that helped, that man that bought us a bottle of wine and to all of the bloggers I had the pleasure of messing about with for a couple of days. You girls are amazing! I'm spending the next couple of days over at Luke's to escape the last bit of wrapping that I need to complete before that Christmas thing or something or nothing.

  1. Eeeeep, you girls all look bloody amazing! I'm so gutted about missing out (again), what's with my dodgy Uni semesters?! I always come across as a bit of a nutter when I meet people, I'm sure Kim, Rosie and Laura could tell you so ;) I'd better get to meet you next year, or I will not be 'appy. And I may have to end up on a stalk mission. LOVE YOU. xxxx

  11. This is such a lovely write up! Certainly puts mine to shame haha!

    You looked gorgeous too! Loved the red dress :)

    It was so fantastic to meet you :) Wish I could have taken the day off work to come and hang out with you all properly and there's no doubt about it that I'll be booking a hotel next time! Sounds like you guys had a blast! (Apart from poor Ayden getting sick of course, that sounds awful, but it sounds like she was well looked after)

    Cannot wait until the next one! :)

  21. I'm sure I told Rosie to look after Ayden for me, as I satyed with her on Monday night for the Scottish Blooger Meet, lo and behold, you sent her back bruised and sickly. TUT TUT Girls! But seriously, isn't she just the most amazing person ever?! Get in the queue for cloning her though! I'm closer.....

    Hope you had a good time, slightly jealous I couldn't go.
