South Wales Blogger Meet Up - The Night

After hitting the shops we all headed to the management suite in St David's to meet the other girls who were attending the evening part of the event. There were so many super nice and fashionable ladies in one reception area! The suite was full with lovely clothes and items from Paperchase, G Star, Mango, New Look, Kurt Geiger, Radley, La Senza, Boux Avenue, Monsoon, Select and a few others.

All the lovely clothes, I think the Monsoon and Peacocks rails were my favourite.

Some lovely cosy looks from GAP.
Boux Avenue created this lovely display and everyone got a hand cream from them in their gift bag.

 The team that put it all together including me and Chantelle, St David's and Golley Slater PR.
(What is up with my face?!)

Reiss, G Star and La Senza all gave talks about the inspiration behind their new collections and a history of the brand. The team from Kamigata showed us how to create a vintage hair look for the party season.

Lots of lovely Krispy Kreme's which went down very well with all the bloggers. We drew a raffle at the end of all the talks and the girls got some fab prizes which included Matalan vouchers and gift bags and Rose Tinted Vintage goodies.

After the event we all headed over to O'Neills on St Mary's Street for a fab buffet (amazing sausages) and a few drinks. I was really relieved this point that everyone was chatting and seemed to be having a good time.

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who came, helped to organise and promote the event. Chantelle was amazing and I think we made a good team :)

I hope everyone who came had a fab time and when I have recovered I will start to think about the next meet up. Have you been to any fabulous events recently?

If there aren't any events in your area like this, why not plan your own?! I always moaned about events being in London but since organising this one lots of people were keen to do another one in Cardiff.
