Once in London we did the majority of our shopping in Oxford street, stopping off at Topshop, Primark etc and I finally got to go in a Forever21 - it was amazing!! We then went to covent garden where we had lunch of a delicious chicken burger with fries and salad. We hit quite a few charity shops and I was astounded at some of their content! Manolo Blahniks and Chanel shoes for £60 - craziness! And we also went to The East End Thrift Store which is a storage unit of vintage finds that would make every hipster cry with excitement and we have decided we shall revisit one day for sure. We also went to Somerset House and had a look at a free exhibition that was on.

After a hefty walk because of a misjudgment of tube stations, we arrived at The Rich Mix where we were greeted by some beauties from Company and welcomed into a room full of fellow bloggers. After grabbing a drink we got chatting to two lovely ladies that work at company, shortly followed by two equally lovely ladies who work for Amber Venz who happened to be on the blogging panel.
We went through to where the seating was for the Q&A sesh and we were greeted at our seats with the BEST goodie bag you could ever wish for (and I thought party bags were great pffft nothing compared to these goody laden bags of joy.)
Listening to all these successful ladies was so inspiring and all their answers made so much sense and has made me want to blog more and regularly! After the Q&A we got to mingle again and we managed to talk to Gem from GemFatale, Carrie from Wishwishwish and Shini from ParknCube who are all amazing gals! We travelled back to Waterloo and then homeward after having met Charlotte who travelled home on the underground with us, check out her blog here: plastichorsess.
All in all a rather fabulous day spent with the best friend, one I would quite happily repeat :) And, I finally joined twitter - follow me @ElizabethPoyntz
I will be putting up a post about my purchases and my amazing goodie bag, so keep your eyes peeled and your keyboards at the ready.
