Hey there! A few days ago I and my friend Rosie (who I will be living with next year!) went to London for 2 days for some blogger business. The first day we went to a party at Shoreditch, organized by Vouchercodes.co.uk. It was a clothes swap party and each person was allowed to bring up to 5 pieces that were in good condition. There was a lot of brand new stuff as well, supplied by Vouchercodes! I got my hands on one of those things, which was a transparent neon Zara clutch bag - I literally went to the event on a mission: to get the bag (I saw that they had posted it on their instagram prior to the event) and I got it :)
We were greeted by loads of yummy and pretty-looking snacks, coctails were served too - properly strong, nothing like what they serve at nightclubs! Vouchercodes had prepared a lot of activities for us to do, such as select clothes (each clothing item that we took to the event gave us "tickets" to "buy" other clothes), go crazy in the photobooth, get our nails done and there was even a DIY tutorial option, where we were shown how to customize clothes that we don't wear anymore. Unfortunately I didn't do that, but I saw a lot of people did really awesome things with their clothes!
I had the pleasure making a new blogger friend Georgia who was super lovely and we bonded over our little mission to get the Zara bags, haha. The goodiebag contained a Dorothy Perkins statement necklace, Paul's Boutique phone bag, Eyelure Girls Aloud falsies and a sewing kit (ha!), and of course lots of brochures and stuff.
It was an amazing event! The next day me and Rosie got up at 8 to hit the Motel Rocks sample sale, and oh, it was just awesome/crazy, but more on that in another post.. Now take a look at the photos from the blogger event:
