Boohoo #KnitB4Xmas



DRESS: Zara via eBay, £30
GLITTERY TOP: Mango via Car boot sale, 50p
LEATHER SKIRT: Car boot sale, £1
SHOES: Urban Outfitters via eBay, £45
BAG: c/o Paul's Boutique

Before I go on about last night, can we all just take a moment to appreciate my beautiful new bag?! The lovely Kate hooked a sister up with this fabulous bright blue, real leather/suede bag from Paul's Boutique. I was a huge fan of Paul's Boutique a few years ago, I would sport my navy quilted PB coat, my zebra print Molly bag with neon pink handles, along with my bright pink curly hair and patent pink Dr Martens (I was pretty obsessed with pink back then and made sure all my outfits matched my hair!). Since then i've never really been into PB, my personal style has come a long way since then, but when Kate got in touch and offered me this beaut from the Selfridges Collection, of course I could not say no. I am absolutely loving cobalt blue at the moment, and i'm a sucker for studs and skulls, so this was perfect.

I paired it with my fave kimono last night and set off to the Boohoo #KnitB4Xmas event. I met up with the lovely Kate from Media Marmalade before, and was later joined by Sheree of Glitz & Grime and her pal. We were greeted with cocktails (of course), and later spoilt for choice with teeny tiny meals of fish and chips, christmas dinner, risotto, mince pies and more. Literally, the chips were the size of a piece of grass - SO CUTE! Even the miniature forks were adorable. I definitely didn't pop two into my bag...

The event was held at Ice Bar London - seriously, you don't understand how freaking cool this place is. Half of it is just a normal glamorous bar but one half is completely made of ice! The walls, the bar, the seats, the tables, THE CUPS YOU GET YOUR DRINKS IN! We were literally drinking rum cocktails out of a block of ice with a hole in it. So so so cool! We were only allowed in there for about half an hour because it was -5 degrees, we were given eskimo ponchos and gloves but by the end of it my fingers were frozen!

Overall an amazing experience, so hilarious seeing everyone in little ponchos, and since it was a big group of bloggers of course there were cameras flashing everywhere, i'm sure i'll be lurking in the background of everyone's photos. I was really happy to finally meet Sammi of Beautycrush who I have been meaning to meet for ages, Louise of Sprinkle of Glitter, and I also spotted lots more "famous" bloggers and YouTubers - definitely had a few fangirl moments in there! Everyone was so lovely though and we had such a fun night. I really am so appreciative of all these opportunities blogging has brought to me. I seem to be in London at least once or twice a week lately attending press events, what a dream. We were given the cutest presents, not just goody bags but ACTUAL wrapped gifts, with a bow and a gift tag, lots of cute bits inside and even a Christmas card signed by all the Boohoo staff. We all got onesies - HOW EXCITING!

Now for the photos... warning, there are LOADS! (I have tried to condense them down - but recently I have been posting ALL the photos I take at various events on my Facebook page. This way I don't swamp you all with photos and you don't miss out on seeing any!)

Thanks so much for the lovely ladies at Boohoo for inviting me and putting on such an amazing event.

Wow you are so lucky to have been invited to such a great event as boohoo! Also I've never ever been interested in PB as i thought it was a little tacky (sorry) but this bag is absolutely stunning! Maybe they've had a fashion change :)

The bag is amazing!!! I've never been a fan, as at the grand old age of 25 I always thought it was for teeny boppers but quite clearly they've matured their style for this new collection! Less is definitely more when it comes to bags! You look lovely as always xX
