#TheBloggersMarket at The Hoxton Hotel
Did you hear about #TheBloggersMarket? If you haven’t then remember the name now because it’s almost certainly coming back! Essentially, it’s a fun day out in London for girls like you where you can come and shop the wardrobes of my besties Carrie, Dunya, Kristabel, Liv and I, plus get involved in activities and catch up with friends!
Last weekend we held our second Bloggers Market and here’s how it all went down…
Nice and early, at 7:30am Kristabel and I stuffed what looked like our whole life into the back of a big Blacklane taxi whilst spewing numerous apologies to our driver who looked mainly bemused by all the suitcases and coloured boxes. Balancing a mirror on our feet, off we headed for central London, tweeting and snapchatting as we went, of course.
At 8:30 we united with the other five girls at the The Hoxton Hotel on High Holborn along with 4 our amazing helpers Paige, Ron, Anne-Sophie, and Gemma who got up early on a Saturday just to muck in! Girls, we could not have done it without ya! A few sofa moves, croissants and rail deliveries later, we had the beautiful Hoxton Hotel Apartment just how we’d imagined.
Next in came 120 KrispyKreme doughnuts (yes, we just about resisted eating them all before we opened) and 4 trays of Yo!Sushi along with the prettiest plates by Talking Tables to Instagram them on. The girls set out all our Appletiser bottles (it’s my fave soft drink so I was chuffed!) and helped arrange The Lounge to host all of our little extras. At 10:30, after the mandatory pep talk, we pulled across the sliding doors and in flooded your faces!
It was a damn good day with lots of you getting your make up touched up by the Benefit Cosmetics girls or getting beautiful braids done by Hair by Joel who styled lots of you at our last event! One of my favourite parts of the day was seeing so many of you adorably illustrated by our talented friend Emma Block! Demand for the cute watercolour interpretations kept her busy painting for much longer than we’d imagined so thank you Emma!
To round off the day perfectly, Liv’s singer-songwriter friend Shannon Wardrop treated us all to a dreamy acoustic set. It was pretty tricky trying to have a cheeky browse of my friends’ rails with Shannon’s incredible voice stopping me in my tracks. Do take a listen!
Thank you so much to everyone who came down to shop and hang out and special thanks to Amber Rose Photography for snapping behind the scenes to get these great shots!
