More IRL than URL

I’ve been reading Rose’s blog for a fair old time now (the girl is wicked stylish and concocts soooooo many marvellous recipes!), so when she announced a blogger meet up right here in London, of course I made plans to go along!  So this afternoon I joined a plethora of Londoner fans for pizza, cocktails and chat.  It was such fun!

Rose is even more beautiful in person (as was her fabulous handbag) and it was so cool to meet so many other bloggers in person – sometimes it can feel rather isolated, tap-tap-tapping away, so it’s always great to connect with other people.  I’ve really enjoyed all the other blogger events I’ve been to recently (London Bloggers Meetup and the Nuffnang Bloggers Tea both spring to mind), and was especially pleased that this time I remembered to take a few pictures too.  Lord bless Instagram!

The woman of the hour!

Lovely Christine, who I first bumped into at the Nuffnang event, and James, one of the Cool Bars for Uncool People boys.

Christine and Bryony – they were kind enough to let me hang with them!  Turning up at these things solo is always a bit nervewracking!

Bryony and the other two CoolBarUncool boys – we had lots of fun chats about myriad random topics.  The best kind of conversation!

All in all, super fun, and a very nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon.  This evening is all about PJs, hanging with M, kittens and reading (I’m a third of the way through my book club book….and book club is on Thursday!).  Tomorrow is work, working out, and Bodeans.  What does the rest of your weekend hold?

      You too! We really must ask Rose for a masterclass in posing for photos – the girl has mad skills!

    How fun! I am visiting family in California – enjoying the sun and 60 degree weather, as it's still (literally) freezing in Portland.
