55 Factory

The majority of these photos were given to me by the lovely Gemma - I always seem to spend too much time talking at events and completely forget to take pictures! Always the way eh?

Last week I was very kindly invited to the launch of of the second issue of 55 Factory, a cool magazine that focuses on music and fashion features. It's such a lovely handbag size which means it's perfect to pop in your bag and read on your commute into work - i'm always after things to make my commute go faster. TFL will be the death of me! The cover star was Pandemonia who is the rather fetching lady in the orange dress! The launch took place in Covent Garden's Rokit. Rokit is one of my favourite places to have a rummage, I could have spent a fortune on the jewellery if I wasn't so poor! The best thing about any blogger events is meeting old favourites and getting to know new bloggers. I met the lovely Gemma, Elodie and Laura - me and Laura spent ages talking to each other before we even realised who each other was! Thanks girls for giving me a really good night.

The final picture is the amazing Meat Market - i've been going on about this place to everyone. I can't get over how tasty the burgers were. Mcdonalds eat your heart out. They taste like cardboard in comparison!

Thank you so much to Lois of Carrottop PR for inviting and to all the sponsors for the lovely goodie bag. The lip balm is now one of my favourites!
