scottish bloggers meet











Yesterday was the day that my amazing co-organiser Rani and I had been planning for a while now and it turned out to be one of the best days out I've had in a long time!

We met in The Counting House where the ice was broken over a few pitchers of cocktails before taking a short walk to the absolutely gorgeous Thrill Room, hidden above the ROX jewellery shop, for afternoon tea. It was such a treat to be sipping champagne in such lovely surroundings, admiring the diamonds (and a £46,000 watch, madness) and the ladies at ROX were great hosts and they were generous enough to give us each a delicately wrapped gift bag with some sparkly jewellery inside. Next it was time for a spot of shopping, and a visit to the German market for huge sausages (mushrooms for me, I'm veggie!), churros and crepes before going to a random - but crazily cheap - bar. The night got a bit blurry after the 3rd or 4th shot, and I think it's safe to say we were more than a little drunk by the end of the night - in true Scottish style of course!

I think there will definitely be more Scottish meet ups to come! Everyone got on so well, and although I didn't know the majority of the people who went before yesterday, it's amazing how by the end of the night it felt like we had been friends for a long time.

Thank you to everyone who came, and also a huge thank you to Alison Jameson PR for the goodie bags and also to ROX Jewellery for the lovely afternoon tea and goodie bag!

The lovely ladies - and honorary boy - who came:
Rani, Paula, Lauren, Zoe, Ayden, Chloe, Andii, Morag, Max, Roisin, Gillian, Jen, Gemma, Claire.

  7. I'm actually really shy and it does take a little while to settle in but in a strange way it feels like you already know the people you're with! I think even the shyest of people feel comfortable. xx
