Bristol Meetup & mystreetchic.com party

After an amazing bloggers meet up in August I jumped at the chance to spend a night with all the lovely ladies again and meet a few new faces. Me and Leanne got the train from Newport and headed in to Bristol to meet up with Lyzi, Vicky, Bee and Sammy for a Nando's and a good catch up.

After stuffing my face with chicken and bottomless fizzy drinks I waddled back to the hotel and got ready to go out with the lovely Leanne and Vicky who I shared my room with.(Hope I didn't snore) We all headed down to Java where the party kicked off and I got to meet even more lovely bloggers.

Vicky, Rai and me clutching a cocktail. (I drank many cocktails)


 We were then treated to a catwalk that showcased the Boohoo festive party collections, the models did a great job walking in all those super high shoes! There were lots of jewel colours and sequins.


Aaaaw doesn't everyone look chic?


Walking home after a few too many cocktails. Love Steph's face here!



Rather than hitting the town we all headed back to the hotel for a good chat and cheesy chips.
I had a lovely time in Bristol and I hope we all get to do it again in the new year, I really do enjoy putting a face to a twitter name and spending time time with so many friendly people.

Also want to say a quick thank you to Missguided for the parcel I got just before I left to get the train to Bristol, put a smile on my face! You can't tell from the photo but Sookie stole these off the kitchen cupboard, hid them in her bed and was found nibbling on the boxes haha.


It's been a lovely week and I've still got a Christmas feast to enjoy at Emma's house tomorrow. I've got my work Christmas party next week and I will spend the night with my best friend on Christmas eve, so busy and happy at the moment!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
