Birmingham Blogger Meet Up - Part 2

As promised here are my photos from Part 2 of the Birmingham Bloggers Meet Up. After a wonderful day of shopping and a lovely meal those who were staying for the night headed back to the hotel to get ready (after stopping off at Tesco to buy cheap wine). I didn't have the usual dilemma of worrying about what to wear out because I only packed one option. I wore my red lace Dorothy Perkins dress which I got in the sale, River Island loafers and a Primark scarf in my hair.
Although most people only came for the day meet up there was still quite a big blogger posse in the night which included: Gem, Claire, Emma, Selina, Fritha, Sara, Rebecca and Emma. I want all these girls to move to Cardiff, seriously the nicest girls ever.

 
My fave picture from the meet up (what is up with my weird finger?). I'm feeling way more confident after sticking to my Where Are My Knees pledge. Not really had a proper night out since losing the 36lbs. I felt a lot less self conscious.
 


I had a great night, consumed loads of £1.80 vodkas and shots, danced like a madwoman around a big pile of handbags, screamed when they played The Smiths and generally had one of the best nights ever. I went a little off my WW plan and had a bacon roll and pints of juice for breakfast but it had to be done to cure the hangover.

I want to say another big thank you to Claire and Fritha for organising it all and I hope there is a reunion in the not so distant future! I loved meeting every single one of the ladies who came to the meet up and I'm having a bit of a post-blogger-meet-up-comedown :(
