London - My weekend in pictures


Last weekend I headed to London with one of my blogging besties Lori to the MAD Blog Awards. I've mentioned here just how much it meant to me to win (really still have to pinch myself that I do a job I love and one that people enjoy and think I'm good at!). Even if I hadn't won though just to be a finalist in an award ceremony that saw 6,500 blogs entered and and with over 250,000 votes & nominations..well it's just very humbling!

We set off early so as to enjoy as much of our child free time as possible and after we arrived in the big smoke headed for a cuppa at MADE. I've worked with MADE a few times now and as well as being totally in love with their retro style and designs they are just a lovely bunch of people to work with. Their show room is pretty much exactly how I'd style my dream home..

After mooching around Notting Hill a little we checked into our hotel the very swish The Atheneaum (post to follow about this swanky apartment!). It's been so long since I've got dressed up and ready with a girlfriend (since uni maybe!) it was really nice to be super girly and talk make up and fashion. My outfit was sent to me by Boden who are fast becoming a favourite of mine and although I felt out of my comfort zone initially in heels the free mini bar and a G&T helped sort that out ;)

After the awards I was able to catch up with some of my lovely blogging buddies, Jess, Katie, Jenny and Morgana. I've not had a chance to speak to Morgana and Jenny in 'real life' much before but I knew they would be as lovely as they seem! What I love most about this whole blogging thing is the friendships I've made with some amazing women.

A pretty amazing weekend really!

Oh wow looks like you had a wonderful time - really wish I had been able to make it. Such a lovely way to spend the weekend and have a bit of a dress up and girl time and I bet Lori was loads of fun - you both look super stylish!
