#summerlondonmeet 16th August

Hey there,

So for today's post I thought I would share with you what went on at the #summerlondonmeet on the 16th August.

For those of you who don't know, I organised a little blogger/vlogger get together in the centre of London in Covent Garden. I did it all on my own, which was a first. It was a little stressful because if anything goes wrong the blame is completely on you but at the same I enjoyed doing the organising side of the event.

I started my day by visiting the poppies at the Tower of London, I had seen pictures but I don't think there is anything like seeing them for yourself to bring it to the front of mind. For me, it was very thought provoking and also a little emotional too. I managed to take a few pictures so I thought I'd share them with you.

They still haven't finished the installation so everyday more poppies are being added and it is beautiful to see. After I had finished at the Tower of London, I ventured to Covent Garden to meet everyone.

The plan of the meet up was to meet in Dirty Martini in Covent Garden for a chat, a drink and a mingle. Whilst at the bar, I had organised for everyone to bring a little goody bag with them (worth no more £10) and the bags were swapped randomly using raffle tickets so nobody knew whose bag they were going to get.

After Dirty Martini, we went shopping of course. Much money was spent by all (some more than others..cough Sarah check out her haul here) and I think/hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

On to my goody bag... mine came courtesy of Saida.

Such a cute little collection, I'm very proud of myself for not eating the chocolate lolly before I had taken pictures of it. 

So thank you to Beth, Saida, Helen, Laura, Sarah, Stacy, Em, Julie, Victoria, Aimee and Ellen for coming. 

Lots of Love,
