IDEA: Secret Santa Meet Up

Hey Lovelies,

Sorry no beauty post for today as I haven't had time to write one up, I just have returned from the big city (London), where I spent the weekend at the #julylondonmeetup. Today I'm achey, tired and in my comfies but I thought I'd put this post up.


I put this idea to twitter last night but I thought I'd bring it to you guys as a way of keeping track of whose interested as well as letting anyone know if they don't follow me on twitter (@abotat90) etc.

So my idea is to have a secret Santa meet up.. Santa I hear you say that's December and we are in July. Well yes but still. So my idea was to organise a meet up with a slight difference. Instead of goody bags, each person has a person who they have to buy a secret Santa present for.

This idea came to me at 1am on Saturday night/Sunday morning when I couldn't sleep in London, so I tested it out on twitter and people didn't think I was crazy (which is a good start).

So I guess I'm asking you two questions...

  1. Would this be of interest to anyone? Would you like to meet up with like-minded people, give them a present, make their day? See their face as they open their present?
  2. Where would you like this held? Would you prefer a London Meet Up or a Midlands one? Which would be easier to get to for people.
Leave me a comment with your answers. I hope people like this idea.

Till Next Time,

NEWS UPDATE.... I am going to be working alongside Emma from Meet the Millards. We are thinking of the date 24th November in London. Does this sound good?

P.S normal posts will return Wednesday.
