The #LDNBloggersParty

I am so sorry about the silence on Bec Boop Fashionista World over the weekend but I do have a very valid excuse! Bec Boop received an exclusive invitation to the #LDNBloggersParty (this was guest-list only) hosted by the gorgeous Scarlett Dixon of www.scarlettlondon.com which was held on Saturday 29th June in the Dirty Martini bar, Hanover Square, London. I could not have imagined a more exciting setting for my first bloggers meet-up event! Not only was I going to be mixing with new bloggers and professional bloggers from the UK but there were also going to be some brands and presentations for us on the day. I then took the opportunity to do a bit of shopping in London over the weekend. I was only reunited with my laptop today to share my exciting story with you.
Although I had an early start travelling from Ireland, nothing could have dampened my spirits for the day ahead. I took the train from the airport and posted my train selfie on instagram. I enjoyed looking at all the other attendee’s train selfies as they made their way to London for the event using #LDNBloggersParty on Twitter. As the Pride parade was also on in London on Saturday I darted across Oxford Street just in time to make it to Hanover Square without any delays. Feeling slightly nervous but comforted by the fact that there were a lot of other bloggers attending who were also new to these events I arrived at the Dirty Martini Bar just after 1.30.

On my way to the #LDNBloggersParty
The venue was just starting to fill up and I got chatting to some lovely bloggers who arrived around the same time as myself. It felt like we all new each other and it was so easy to introduce myself to all the friendly faces around the room. It was great to finally meet the bloggers which I had been interacting with on Twitter and to finally put faces to the blogs! Since it was Happy Hour I just had to treat myself to a Raspberry Bellini from the extensive cocktail menu which was perfect to settle the nerves!

I took a browse around the stands which were set up for us. This included a DIY styling station organised by Cloud Nine and I was also given an exclusive lookbook from the Quiz Clothing team which was made specifically for the event! I then checked out the gorgeous beauty products which had been brought to the event by Oriflame and I hope to provide you with more information on their products in a future post. I also had an informative discussion on SEO for Bloggers which was a presentation the team at Search Laboratory had put together for us. This was something I found very beneficial and can definitely put to use.

I was just taking a breather and sipping on my cocktail when I was approached by Joseph Kent of www.unlimitedbyjk.com to step outside for a street-style photoshoot! You can check out his post on my street style outfit here and I think he is an amazing street-style photographer! I wore my favourite blue dress from Maisy Boutique, blue high-top converse, navy and black fishnet tights and a necklace from Primark. I completed the look with a fun animal hat. You might recognise the dress from my blog header 😉

Just as the party was starting to wrap up we were given a goodie bag jam-packed with amazing treats which included lots of beauty products and a fab pink blogger necklace. I said goodbye to my new blogger friends Emma from Fab Head To Toe and Fran from The Fashion Lover who helped make my first blogger event experience so much fun!

I was honoured to represent the Irish Blogging World at this event and cannot thank Scarlett enough for my invite. I met so many fab bloggers and had a brilliant day along with getting an invaluable insight into the blogging world 🙂
