South Wales Blogger Meet Up - The Day

I'm going to split the event in to the day and evening parts because I met so many lovely girls and it was such a busy day I don't think I can cram it all in to one post!

I barely slept the night before the meet up, I kept on making lists in my head and thinking of things that I should have done. I only have a few dresses that still fit me at the moment so I didn't have to think too hard about what to wear. I wore my red lace dress with flats, scarf and a cardi to make is casual for the day and added some red lippy and took off the cardi and scarf in the night for a more glam look.

I met up with my partner in crime Chantelle to pack the goodie bags before the event and when I saw how big the room was I was a little daunted and started to worry about people not turning up.
I met Rosie , Rai, and Melanie at the train station and we all headed to BB's Coffee and Muffins which has the nicest interior of any coffee shop in Cardiff city centre. We met Chantelle, Sarah, Lowri, Amy, Kate Lousie and Louise.


Everything  in BB's is black, white and pink with a hit of lime, there is loads of glitter and comfy chairs. So much nicer then all the boring Starbuck's interiors. We all tucked in to some tasty muffins (I chose blueberry) and I was very jealous of some of the girls hot chocolate which came with marshmallows mmm! All the muffins are baked in store that day and mine was still warm, best I've had for a long time.


We were in BB's for nearly 2 hours just chatting away, mainly about the fact that leggings must not be worn as trousers (it's jsut wrong!) and then headed off for some shopping in the arcades and Urban Outfitters. It was a cheap day out for me, I only bought powder but Lowri went a bit mad in UO and got a gorgeous cardi, can't wait to see what she puts it with.


I started to get lots of messages around 5.45pm asking where to meet for the evening event and panic started to set in again. I wondered what the St David's team had done with the room since I left them at 3pm and if everyone was going to turn it. I was not disappointed....

Part 2 later coming later in the week!

P.S. if you posted about the event please let me know, I want to snoop at all of your lovely photos :)
