#SWBXmas event


On Sunday afternoon, quite hungover may I add, I went along to the South West Bloggers Christmas event in the centre of Bristol. When I heard about the event, hosted by Gina, Hayley and Lyzi, I was determined to go as it was a chance to meet fellow bloggers all in the place that I live! I missed out on tickets first time round but luckily for me a few people couldn't attend so I managed to get a last minute ticket and headed down into the streets of Bristol.
This was the first event, or such like, that I'd been to so naturally I was pretty nervous and felt like everyone knew each other a part from me. Luckily the atmosphere was extremely chilled and everyone was welcoming and chatty. I met Jess and Amy who were both lovely as well as Bonny who strangely did some work for the company I work for before I started! Small world.
We were served with yummy cake, tea and champagne in the cutest tea cups - which I avoided due to the alcohol consumption the night before - and each blogger had a little Christmas present.
The event was held in a teashop come vintage paradise called The Birdcage (follow them on Twitter if you live in the area @Birdcagebristol), I'd never heard of the place before but so glad that I got an opportunity to go there it was beautiful and I kept saying that it was my dream to own something as sweet as it one day. The lamp shade lights were quirky and it had a huge Christmas tree in the corner making it feel very festive.
It was a lovely afternoon, thank you girls, I'm pleased I got to meet some ladies who I've spoken with on Twitter and new ones I look forward to meeting again at further events. We all also received a lovely vintage scarf from The Birdcage to go home with, which I cannot wait to wear!
I hope you're all well, will any of you be at the Birmingham meet up in January? I'm pretty excited about that one, shopping and food my two favourites things!
