Have I ever told you how lovely you are?

 
 
Ola chicas, I went to the east midlands blogger meetup yesterday in Nottingham, which was soo nice as I got to meetup with my blogger bezzies along with quite a few new faces! The event collided with the 48hrs of fashion event in the town centre, which had a series of pop-up events and catwalk shows running throughout the day. We started the day by going to the the New Look new season showcase, which instead of just walking the models had a choreographed dance routine. We also attended a talk, which to be fair we weren't too fussed about but the second we heard there was gona be free cake we were onit like a shot, haha. I had no idea what the woman leading the talk was on about but those cakes, oooft, they'd drive anyone to distraction.
 
Me and Abi went into this 3D body scanner, which told me apparently I have 'a triangle' body shape (what every girl wants to hear, that she's shaped like a triangle :P) it was quite a bizzare experience standing inside this blacked-out booth, in my underwear, with opera music playing and flashing lights every where. I've never been probed by aliens, but I imagine this is what it's like.
Later we also went to check out the MiMM indoor market which played host to local upcoming indie and urban labels, one of which, Daisy Thomas, I am now completely in love with, thanks to their pretty epic custom headphones (which are now going straight on my christmas list - too early? Neverrr, haha). Anywhoo I've rambled long enough but if you fancy checking out the blogs by the other ladies who went to the event I've left links at the bottom of the post. Have a fab weekend lovlies!

  2. Aww this looks fab! I'd have definitely been a sucker for the cake too haha.
    That body scanner sounds craaazy... Although there's worse shapes you could be than a triangle I suppose (hexagon maybe?!)

  4. looks like a fun event, the body scanner thing sounds rather weird though. I'd never heard of triangle shaped bodies, thought it was only fruit! x
