On Saturday, as I'm sure many are quite aware, Eyeko hosted their very first bloggers' event in celebration of 10 years of Pretty London! As I interned there a month or so ago, I was invited along to help set up as well as mingle with all you lovely bloggers. So on Saturday morning, I made my way up to London with my friend Leanne in tow ;)

The event was held at the Wenlock & Essex Bar in Angel, Islington, which was such a fun and fitting location for the event. It really reminds me of a circus/carnival and even had a light-up dancefloor! I had the task of meandering around and filming the events that unfolded throughout the evening; I am awful with cameras, but hopefully the video will look good!



Everyone was provided with goody bags, presented with Eyeko's new London Lips, blushes and bronzers, and fed well with cupcakes, canapes (amazing ones at that!) and custom Eyeko cocktails (possibly even more amazing!) The London Lips are amazing, the Mayfair shade is a must-have! Enter my code E10884 for a free gift at checkout on orders over £10.

Leanne and I!

Leanne's swish Chi Chi manicure and Juicy Fruit cocktail!

Polaroid-ed!

I've never attended a bloggers event or anything similar to this before, being more on the fashion side of things, so it was a really fun experience! I must admit I was ever so slightly starstruck when meeting the likes of Milly, Gem and lots of other bloggers! It feels a bit surreal to be meeting people whose blogs you've read and loved for months.

Overall, I had a great evening, mixing work with fun I suppose! I wish I'd thought about getting photos taken with all you lovely ladies though ): Had a bit of a dance and general fun time with Leanne as per usual, who also acted as my photographer for the night. And before I forget, this is what we wore on the night:


Playsuit, Topshop; Cardigan, Bess; Tights, Topshop.

Top, Mango at ASOS; Leather shorts, Zara; Love pearl necklace, Primark.

    julianne: awh thanks lovely! it was a really good event, can't believe how well it turned out after weeks of hard work!

    helen: yes it was! ahh i think there should be too, even though i'm down south! london seems the generic place to hold events though, especially as eyeko is a london based brand, promoting 'pretty london'!

    danniekate: cupcakes are just the food of bloggers i think! thanks lovely!

    gem: you shoulddd! so sweet, and the 'love' bit softens up the suspendery look (:

    a: thank you lovely, shoes were from topshoppp!

  35. sp: it was really good to see people in 'real-life', it felt like everyone had known each other for years, because we all read about each other!

    beewaits: it was so much fun! took a lot of stress and effort to put together though, i would know through booking the sponsors in! i didn't get to eat a cupcake! totally forgot to pick one up!

    pink dolly: thank you lovely!
