An evening with Motel and Glossybox

As I mentioned on Sunday I was very lucky to be invited to the Motel/Glossybox bloggers evening to showcase the company's fantastic Christmas collection. Boy do Motel know how to throw a party! It was amazing! I took advantage, as you do, of the cocktails, popcorn and candy floss as well as having a cheeky cupcake or two! I have honestly never seen so many bloggers all in once place. It was so nice to have people to talk to about blogging, I usually get from my friends "huh you take pictures of yourself? Why?"

To be honest I had never shopped in Motel because I just assumed that it was just bodycon and I have never been a fan of trying to squeeze myself into a tight dress. How wrong was it? They sell everything from coloured jeans, leopard print blouses and lace shorts. I had a lot of trouble chosing an item to take home with me so put down two, very excited to see what one I am to be given!

I finally met the lovely ladies who I pester on twitter so much and thus then started to pester them in real life too. Sarah, Rachel, Charlotte, Hannah and Eloise all made me feel so welcome and not so much of a loon when I started to stalk them! I also met up again with Steph and Dani but unfortunately didn't get to talk them as much as I would have like! I met some new ladies such as Rebecca and Sarah. I am so sorry if I didn't get the chance to say boy or hello to anyone, I felt a bit overwhelmed and just didn't know who to talk to. I just keep floating all over the place! I am also sorry if I have missed you off my list, I lost track of just how many people I spoke it!

Thank you so so much for Motel and Glossybox for throwing such a fantastic shindig and to Selina for inviting me :)

I was very kindly given permission to use the photos by the Glossybox team and Steph. I haven't included any pictures of my mug as I am in dire need of a fringe cut. I look like cousin It and you would not have been able to see my face anyway :)
