So if you've been following me on Twitter, you'll know that I'm just back from London after a wonderful weekend. The trip was a Christmas gift from my mother in law and the main reason for booking it was to allow me to meet up with some other fashion bloggers who have become great friends and wonderful supporters over the past year.
Here's all who came : Joanna from Poppy's Style, Fiona from Avenue 57, Sue from Susie So So, Marlene from Chocolate Cookies, Kat from Does My Bum Look 40, Natalie from Glam Rosie, Beth from Style Guile and Helen from The Flaky Fashionista.
And here are some photos from the day..starting with some indoor ones. We met in the Mayfair Pizza Company which was the perfect venue. They gave us a part of the bar to ourselves and we stayed there for about 10 hours all told!
First photo is the only group one I got and the only one with Beth in it as she had to catch an early train. Sorry for the poor picture quality!

And some outdoor ones from earlier in the day when 4 of us took a break from the restaurant to shop! We went to Cos & Uniqlo where I took tons of photos that I'll share on another post. Both great stores that I wish had a presence in Belfast.

And.....here's what I wore. Thanks to Marlene for the photo:
|Grey Wool Coat - Zara|
Spotty Scarf - Marni @ H&M
Denim Shirt - Sainsburys
Scarf - Next
Boots - Moda in Pelle
Bag - Fossil @ Menarys
And underneath the scarf - the Accessorize statement necklace my sister in law got me for Christmas. All sold out online but this one is similar.
I never thought 10 hours could fly in like that and that I would be so sad leaving for the last train to Reading. It was one of those days where the conversation flowed without effort, where there were squeals of laughter, unrepeatable discussions (!!) but also some more serious debates and lots of hugs and kisses on departure. It was like meeting my bestest girlfriends for an unmissable night out...and I guess that is exactly what it was by the end of the day. How wonderful blogging is. Until next time lovely ladies...
