Scottish Blogger Meetup

Last night was a very exciting night
as it was my first ever experience of a blogger meetup!

There were plenty of times over the past week when I seriously considered not going 
I already suffer from really bad anxiety and the thought of meeting up with a bunch of complete strangers was absolutely terrifying! 
but I can honestly say I am SO glad I went
I met the most lovely people and at the end of the day we were all in the same boat. 
I'm sure everyone was nervous, but everyone was so friendly and welcoming!

The meetup was organised by the lovely Karris
We met in a bar in Bath Street in Glasgow called KUTA
It's a really nice new bar and the drink was really cheap!
£1.50 for a Vodka and mixer = Dangerous! lol

Karris even organised a raffle for us
where the prizes were some of her favourite beauty products!
such a lovely idea and a really good icebreaker! 

I felt under quite a lot of pressure to get ready for last night as I knew I would be meeting up with lots of gorgeous ladies so I wanted to look my best! 
I ordered a new top to wear which thankfully arrived right at the last minute! 

Unfortunately I was running late (as always) So I didn't have time to take any outfit pics before I went 
but I did take some when I got home




Black Studded Peplum Top - www.misspap.co.uk
Disco Pant Dupes - Glamorous  - Stons Glasgow 


*Found this one on my camera this morning, I'd deffo had one too many Vodkas!*

I actually couldn't take my camera to the meetup as my bag was tiny and I had to choose between my camera or a hairbrush, and the hairbrush won!! lol 
So here are a few photos from Karris which you can find on her facebook page 
I hope she doesn't mind me using them! 








Such an amazing night 
and if any of you have the opportunity to go to a meetup 
don't be scared just go for it! You won;t regret it! 

Now I've got to go and read all the lovely new blogs that I found from last night! 

Ciao

      I was really happy with the top! it's got a dipped hem at the back so you can wear it with leggings which is good!

  7. I absolutely loved your top, thought it was gorgeous! Really enjoyed the meet up - can't wait for the next one, where I hopefully won't be so shy and will talk from the start rather than sitting silently for the first 2 hours!
