ON MY SEPTEMBER WISHLIST...

LFW: MY MINI EXPERIENCE

So yesterday was the first day of London Fashion Week and since I don't have any passes for shows I had accepted my fate and set my hopes for attending in September (God Willing!). I was moping about on instagram and someone encouraged me to go anyway just to soak up the atmosphere, I ran the idea by my sister as a joke but then she agreed, so we went and I'm so glad we did!
The queue for the PPQ Show went around the screen and up some stairs!

 First off...it was super intimidating, we had no idea what we were doing, initially I thought I would see if there were any stylish people about and snap a few outfits and hopefully bump into a few bloggers! But I seriously froze, there were loads of people dressed up, looking the part! A few peoples outfits caught my eye but I was too scared to ask them for a picture. How crazy is that!?  After some courage from my boyfriend and my sister, I spotted a few bloggers/instagram ladies and took a few snaps!


 NATASHA NDLOVU FROM BISOUS NATASHA
The gorgeous model was so lovely to talk to, having been to some castings earlier she had stopped by to take some snaps too! If you've never checked out her blog you must, she has serious style and I have designer style envy every time she's posts. Her blog is Bisous Natasha.


PROMISE FROM FOLLOWMEIN5INCHHEELS
I wish I had got Promise to show her clutch bag because it was so beautiful but you can check out her full outfit on her blog Follow Me In 5inch Heels. We follow each other through instagram, so it was so nice that she remembered me. She looked stunning and you guys really must check out her blog. I want all her Virgos Lounge clothing!


I also caught a short glimpse of Melissa from Melissa's Wardrobe and Drey from A Stylists Notepad, and I had hoped on meeting Frankie from Even Though I'm Skint but I totally missed her, we'll meet soon though!


So moral of the story! Be brave and be spontaneous. You never know who you might meet! And fingers crossed, come September I can meet them all again and be brave enough to snap few people too!

Ok guys I'm going to get back to my "Scandal" marathon, just finished season 1 and onto season 2 now! Whoooo that program is my new ish! 

Have a good weekend xxx

  17. Such a good idea to just visit down there, just to get pics and a bit of networking. I laughed at the time you said you felt nervous, cos I'd be crapping myself haha!! :/

    Hoping I'll one day be invited to something *fingers crossed for the both of us*
