Bloggers take over Cardiff

Last week I travelled down to Cardiff to meet up with Gem and Emma. It was the first time i'd actually met Emma in person but we got on like a house on fire. There was a reason why we started talking in the first place! Some of these pictures were stolen from Emma's instagram.

I really did have the most amazing weekend - Gem was an absolutely brilliant guide. She took us out for a cracking night out where we ended up in Welsh club dancing to indie classics and dirty pop. The night went so well it ended with us laying in bed eating Mcdonalds at 4am. Surely that's the pinnacle of all nights out? You know you've had a good one! The whole weekend was spent eating - the delicious picnic was very kindly supplied by Marks and Spencer - and drinking pitchers in Wetherspoons. It was so fantastic to listen to Gem reel off the history of the city as we wandered around. It's always nice to get a local's take. The above breakfast of Chorizo Eggs Benedict in Cozy Club went down a treat on Sunday - I may have ordered some extra toast to combat the hangover too....

It was a bit of a bummer to go home but i'll no doubt be back in Wales soon. I may have even texted my best friend at silly o'clock in the morning informing her we need to plan a girls weekend there NOW!
