The blogger seminar, with a guest panel compiled of Vintageena, Honey Pop, and Sophie Hannah, was an interesting opportunity for brands to get to understand the power of bloggers and how to form the best relationships that’s productive for both sides. One thing I did notice at the event was how welcoming everyone was to bloggers, and how there is a real push to see the power of blogging.

After a round of latex-clad bottom slapping we hit up Pizza Express for some much needed food before making our respective journeys home.
A long ass-day but I loved every second of it.
|Arriving upstairs I got my pass, and a fabulous bloggers goody bag which including some awesome bits including a free bottle of Manic Panic dye! Straight off the bat I was snapping away. The stalls all looked amazing and I was pretty giddy slipping around, lusting after so many amazing bits, discovering new brands, and chatting to some lovely people. That’s one thing that stood out to me throughout the whole day was just how welcomging and friendly all the business’ were. As bloggers we’re not tradesfolk and so being given as much time as we were was really appreciated.
Here are some of the many, many brands at the show (seriously, this wasn;t even like a third of what was there!)
I’ll let the photos do the talking!

But it was the nothingness that hurt the most. Some days I would be grateful for the sadness, if not to feel something. Sometimes you can fall in love with your sadness because the alternative is staring into silence.
Back in September I attended the Curve Fashion Fest in Manchester. So Fabulous were holding a competition to win an outfit just by choosing something from the rails and having your photo snapped in it. Sadly I didn’t win it but I was excited to find this Faux Fur Shawl Collar Wrap Coat (phew!). They didn’t have my size at the time but it still looked pretty cute.
