#ldnlunch and the worst Nicky Wire impersonator you have ever seen...

Better late than never...
I never take any photos when I go to blogger meetups and ldnlunch was no exception. I was far too busy chatting and drinking cocktails to take photos so I waited for these ones to surface. It was lovely to just meet up with people I speak to on a daily basis on twitter and have some lunch. No big event, just some drinks and good conversation. Perfect.

I travelled down to London with the lovely Lowri from Cardiff and we met up with a big group in Topshop for a bit of retail therapy. I manged to resist and only bought some body glitter for the party I was going to in the night and a huge Lola's cupcake in Selfridges to eat on the train back.



Charlotte took this lovely group shot




I love this photo of me Lowri and Sarah that Sophie took. I love spending time with Sarah, I pester her most days with links to dresses and moan to her about Weight Watchers. Sarah is the best!


I want to say a big thank you to Eloise, Sophie and Claire for organising the whole day, it really was lovely.

I got back to Cardiff that night at about 9.30 and got changed straight away and went to a house party an hour later, bit of a long day! The party had a 90s theme so I did my best impression of Nicky Wire (from the Manic Street Preachers) and went wild on eyeliner, glitter and leopard print.



Love something that Nicky said on twitter recently 'Lets all grow old together-in leopard print and mascara-with eye liner and tiaras-delaying time forever'
