Hello everyone!
 
So yesterday (April 5th) was finally the day of the much anticipated South East Bloggers meet up organised by myself and Aileen (http://a-is-for-aileen.blogspot.co.uk/) held in Covent Garden. We had been in the process of organising this since early February so we couldn't wait for the day to come!
 
I travelled up to London with my (very) heavy bag full of goodies for the bloggers (I will post about these within the next couple of days) and made my way to Starbucks where we were all meeting. Myself and Aileen met early to sort out all the goodie bags for everyone and so we were there for anyone arriving early. We thought we had managed to keep the whole of the downstairs to ourselves but more and more customers came down (sporting some very strange looks in our direction). Thankfully, everyone arrived safely and no one got too lost!
 
After about an hour, we wandered off round Covent Garden and had a look at what it had to offer. 'Sass and Belle' was a particularly lovely shop full of beautiful home products that we all fell in love with! Then it was time for the meal. We had picked Zizzi's as they were very willing to cater for bigger groups of people and we all enjoyed a lovely meal there with the instagrammed evidence to prove it. (see pictures of pizza above!) This was also where we did our box swap*.
 
After the meal, we took a few group shots in front of the telephone boxes and then explored the area a bit more. We found ourselves in Urban Outfitters and everyone fell in love with the candles! Unfortunately, my bank balance wouldn't stretch that far so I settled for some cute earrings and a much needed lunchbox!
 
 
 
Finally, we looked in Cath Kidston and then in Rokit, a vintage clothes shop which I will definitely be visiting again, they had some lovely clothes and jewellery in there!
 
The day was very successful and although not as many people turned up as we thought, everyone that came was lovely and we got on so well and I'm sure there will be something planned again for the near future.
 
Thank you everyone for coming, you made the day so great and I want to keep in touch with you all! Thank you to Lauryn for letting me use her pictures and a special thank you for Aileen for being a fab co-host!
 
Finally, we took an Oscar style selfie which I had to put up as it is possibly one of my favourite pictures ever:
