Ladies what #ldnlunch

After a few deep breaths I plucked up the courage to walk into the Jetlag bar in Fitzrovia & meet some fellow blogging lovelies.
I'd first heard about Ldnlunch On Eloise's blog. I'd always wanted to go to a blogger meet so I put my name down straight away. I was a bit nervous when I realised there were about 40 other girls going who's blogs were mainly about fashion, whereas mine is just random ramblings from inside my brain box but decided I'd still go seeing as I had nothing to lose!

I arrived expecting to be early but there were already lots of people sitting down for drinks & food so I grabbed a drink & perched on a pooffe.
I just ordered a bowl of chips (how adventurous!) but I did pick off the plates around me (yoink! Thanks Lois!). There were mixed responses to the rather tentacle-y calamari (I have some hilarious snaps of Jazzy eating the tentacles but I'm here to make friends not enemies so those will be shared between the 2 of us & that's it!).

Everyone was lovely (Emily, Charlotte, Faye, Rosie, Kristin, Rachel, Charlotte, Hannah, Lauren, Emily, Lowri, to name a few more!) as we nattered away about anything & everything & I had a great time talking to as many people as possible. Sorry if I didn't get a chance to say hi or have missed you off this little list it's nowt personal there were just so many names & faces flying around!
As well as sharing a pooffe I had a lovely natter with Chelsea
I fell in love with Jazzy's shoes! How awesome?!

After we'd had our fill at the Jetlag bar we decided to 'move on' (code word to head to Wetherspoons for cheaper booze!). I finally left at 6pm with a huge smile on my face. I didn't really want to leave. After thinking I'd just go or a couple of hours it turned into one of the nicest Saturdays I've had in a long time.
Some more lovely ladies - Annabel, Sian (who won best dressed!) & Jemma.
Emma, Eloise & moi with blogger essentials - camera & iPhone!

Want to see us vlogging our blogs?! Take a peek here! Btw thanks for all the new followers & lovely comments you've made my weekend! I'm hoping to go to the bloggers picnic in July as long as it doesn't clash with the Ben&Jerrys festival so hopefully see some of y'all there!

It was so difficult to know how to try and talk to everyone, I failed miserably but I did have an awesome day regardless! its SO nice when you have met the person behind the blog isn't it!? I took zilch pictures, so will nab some of yours and credit them, obvs!!
See you in the summer! xx

Really hope I can make the bloggers picnic. I feel much more confident now I've met a few of y'all so I'll be much more relaxed & in a place like Hyde Park it would be hard not to be! x

You've totally given me the courage to try something like this. I've been wanting to for ages but always feel nervous. Looks like you met some really nice people and hope to see you at the bloggers picnic :)

I've never been to a blogging event but I think I'll put my name down for the next one! It would be great to get to know some other bloggers, especially such stylish ladies!

I just stumbled across your blog after looking at the attendee list for LDN Lunch and I'm so glad I did - you have a new follower :)
