FLASH! (AhhAhhhhhh)

Earlier this week I was lucky enough to be invited along to the launch of Flash Paradise- a tropical themed pop up shop put together by students at Middlesex university to raise money for Japan. Open for two days only, the make-shift shop had an amazing itinerary including blog workshops led by Carrie from Wish Wish Wish and Bang! Nails painting nails in an array of tropical themes! 

At the launch me and my sister were greeted by the, (even more), stunning in real life Lucy from Snippets of Shiny Thoughts who promptly sorted us out with drinks and a free illustration. After munching a few cupcakes and admiring the clothes I got the chance to meet and chat with some fellow bloggers- Jazmine, Lizzy, Hannah, Sherin and Suzie

The evening was so much fun and me and my sister even won a piece of clothing in the raffle! As well as heading home with a fantastic goody bag :)

It was my first 'event' as a blogger and I had to battle some nerves to go, but I am so glad I did. I've been invited to another event next week- and now I am even more excited! So keep an eye out for that one :)
