South Wales Blogger Meet

South Wales Blogger Meet

I’m a little slow (well, quite a lot) at writing this post, so apologies for that. On 12 October I attended the South Wales Blogger meet along with loads of other bloggers. The meet was organised by Gem and Chantelle in partnership with St David’s shopping centre – thank you so much for making it so special!

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make the day part of the meet as I couldn’t get the time off work, thankfully my lovely bosses agreed that I could finish work an hour early so that I could make it in time for the evening part! This was held in the management suite of St David’s shopping centre.

The suite had been done out with rails of clothes and other items from various retailers includinPaperchase, G Star, Mango, New Look, Kurt Geiger, Radley, La Senza, Boux Avenue, Monsoon, Select, Peacocks, Jane Norman and a few others.

LOVE the dress on the left for the Christmas party season 

I really want a Paperchase Christmas!

 THE Kurt Geiger stud shoes!

I’m in love with this Radley bag

Various retailers gave us a talk about their collections and some about the history of the store. We also had a hair demonstration from Kamigata in which they showed us how to create this seasons vintage wave. When the talks were over we were given Krispy Kreme doughnuts, we then got to go have a look at the clothes, etc that were on display.

We were given goody bags when we entered the event, they all had a number on. These numbers were for a raffle, I won some gorgeous goodies from Peas in a Pod.

The goody bags were packed to the brim! I was so amazed at how much we had!

 Various look books.

 This was a kind of lucky dip, I think the highest voucher was £50.

 Lots and lots of discounts and gift vouchers!

Mango vest top and various other goodies.

After a good browse and chat in St David’s we headed over to O’Neills on St Mary’s Street where we had a lovely buffet. I was pleased to see that the sausages I love so much were on the buffet!

I did my usual hopeless thing of not taking any photos of people! Rosie gave me permission to steal this photo from her post about the meet up.

I had a lovely evening, I got to catch up with a few people that I’ve met previously and met a load of people whose blogs I have been following for a while.

You can see a full list of the atendees on Gem’s blog if you are interested. Gem & Chantelle are also each giving a reader the chance to win a goody bag from the event.

Thanks so much for organising this girls, when is the next one!?!

    It was a good day, that is the only problem with the meets, the travel and time often involved! That is why it was so nice to have something local x
