On Saturday the 15th of October myself, Vivianna does make up and my best friend Megan were up bright and early, why? TOWIB 2 of course! I’m so late to post about this as I’ve been getting accustomed to my new Macbook pro (I’ve been asked to do a post about this, but that’s for another day).
Saturday morning, we bought our little travel cards and hopped on the train to London (I actually really enjoyed train rides and everyone was shocked that i haven’t been on a train since I was 16! oh and hadn’t been to London since I was 10! I know, what have I been doing with my life right?). TOWIB was held at the Babble Bar near Green Park and was beautiful inside, if not a teeny bit dark, but oh wells.
Now I’m sure most of you now know how this all went down. First up there was a talk/demonstrations by FashionistA – a brand that has recently launched and is being sold in Superdrug. I was in the front row for this, and had my camera on me, but as I was so close it felt a bit invasive to take pictures but other bloggers took plenty so just check theirs out.
Next up was a HTML talk. Luckily for me my lovely boyfriend builds websites, and so changing my blog layout slightly is a walk in the park for him, so I skipped this talk to do what I was really looking forward to doing – meeting other lovely bloggers! It might sound quite strange, but I love meeting other bloggers and finding out more about them and what they do, and obviously talking about blogging. It’s never quite the same talking about blogging to someone that doesn’t have much to do with it, so it’s very refreshing being able to chat with other people who understand what you’re talking about.
Anna, Megan, Myself and Siobhan.
Next up was the talk from Vivo, a new make up rang made exclusively for Tesco, we got some goodies from them after and I will actually do a post on how much I love a few of the things I got and why! There was much more to the day than this (think Photography talks and a Q&A) but Megan had joined me on the condition that we could have some quality time together to go shopping 🙂 So we hopped on the tube to Oxford Circus, which was crazy – thank god Megan understands tube maps because me and my iphone app would have been very confused alone! But anyway, we bought lots of nice things and i’ll show you a few things later this week! Over all I had an amazing day and I would definitely be interested in going again – and maybe dragging along a few other good blogging friends who didn’t get the chance to go this time!
That’s all from me tonight as I’m off to watch Gossip Girl and drink tea before bed, there are loads of much more detailed posts on TOWIB and the girls I’ve linked have done some especially good ones and have really amazing blogs so if you haven’t already please check theirs out!
Hope everyones having a good week so far!
