Fashionchick Blogger's Christmas Party



So last night I attended my FIRST EVER blogger's event! I couldn't believe it when I was emailed by the lovely girls at inviting me to their Blogger's Christmas Party, hosted by and Dorothy Perkins! I honestly didn't think it was real! For those of you who follow my blog/IG account, you will know I have only dabbled in blogging for around 6 months, so to be invited was an absolute honour!

It was held at the beautiful Epernay Champagne Bar in Manchester City Centre. I had never been, but I will definitely be going back! It is just off Spinningfileds and is in such a beautiful area of the City. 

I was incredibly nervous about attending a party on my own! It's just something I hadn't done before, but I was so excited to get inside, that the nerves soon dissapeared. 

We were greeted with a glass of champagne and nibbles, and then led through to the party where we could have our nails painted or hair styled at the hair bar. The room oozed fashion, with sequins galore and stunning bloggers huddled around the various clothes stalls.

Luckily, I was not alone for long! I met two lovely girls from the media team. They introduced me to all of the beautiful AW14 pieces. I have added pictures, but trust me, they do not do them justice! I loved every single piece! The Dorothy Perkins stand was equally as beautiful. The lovely Jodie showed me the new pieces for AW. The silver coloured fur coat was an absolute favourite of mine!

I then met the beautiful Holly from Rock On Ruby, who I follow on IG and the girls she was with. They were all lovely! I felt instantly as ease, and we chatted about all things fashion and blogging. It's so nice to meet the bloggers you follow and admire, and also great to meet new people who have the same interests as you.

I now must apologise for the lack/quality of my pictures! I was so overwhelmed, I honestly forgot to take some! Most of the images above are from the blogger's I met (links on IG). I know, the only time I really should take pictures and I forget! 

We had a ball with the Christmas props (I'm the one with the snowman glasses!) and the atmosphere was lovely all night. When I left, I was given an amazing goodie bag! I still can't believe we were treated to wonderful food, drink, pampering, fashion AND we got a goodie bag! 

I was blown away by everyone's kindness and support for new blogger's. There was no elitism, or snobbery of how many followers you have, people just wanted to talk about fashion. It has definitely renewed my enthusiasm for blogging. I love every single follower, I still can't believe 300 people are interested in me! 

Have a wonderful week,
