MEETING BLOGGERS & THE #GOGLAMGALA

Seriously, I can feel myself having deep gala blues writing this post but it's something I must speak about and share with you guys. I cannot actually believe I was invited to this event to begin with if I'm being completely honest with you, my posting schedule is rather spotty and I've had more than enough time off this year so I was honestly surprised that I was invited. 
(Thanks Scarlett from SL Events for the invite you absolute babe)
My dress is from Rare London and my shoes are from Pretty Little Thing and you can purchase them here & here 

If you have no idea what I'm banging on about then I shall fill you in! GoSend is a shipping service that basically allows you to order those hard to get products from America without having to pay tax for your items. It's so so simple to use and I've used it twice now on a huge order to Colourpop & Morphe brushes (which took no time at all to arrive by the way) 

I was invited to the event way back in October, I was pretty anxious about going as it was going to be a huge event where so many bloggers/vloggers who I have watched and been obsessed with for years were going to be there. As the months went by I had formed a group chat full of over 13 girls who were attending the event and I must say that was the best thing I've done this year, I have made the greatest of friends from this group chat and even though the event has now been and gone we're literally planning our next outing very soon.




I was incredibly happy to have my girl Taylor with me from Tmaemakeup, as well as being a blogger she is also one of my best friends. Having her there made the thought of travelling up to london, getting cabs and booking a hotel a lot easier and it was simply calming to me to just have her there. 

The event took place at the QEII centre in Westminster and it was honestly stunning, once we had checked our names off of the guest list we made our way upstairs to then be greeted by a room full of beautiful people, a red carpet, blossom trees and a rose wall (FYI, I NOW WANT NEED A ROSE WALL OK). The first person I saw was my fave Brogan Tate, unfortunately I did not have the courage or the balls to even go up to her, this was also the case with the stunning Victoria from Inthefrow, Lydia from Lydiaemillen and Em from Emtalks but hopefully there will be plenty more opportunities to get a chance to speak with them (prayingggggg) 


The venue was full of people in the most beautiful dresses and amongst them all were beautifully decorated tables where a few brands had made themselves at home. Candy Kittens was the first brand I saw and I know what you're thinking, obviously Sarah had to just barge her way through these people just to get to the food but it wasn't like that I assure you (ok, thats a small lie). If you didn't know I've recently just started slimming world and I'd like to think that I'm doing pretty well but the Candy Kittens table had me shook and I think I went over my daily food allowance within the space of 10 minutes (BUT THE CANDY WAS SO DAMN GOOD SO ITS OK)

The event went by so quickly that I sadly didn't get to go round to the other brands but I know for certain Cute Nutrition were there and so were Vlogbox and Panasonic Beauty (sorry if I missed any out). I wish I had gotten round to them but I was too busy eating all of the Candy Kittens and trying to talk to as many people as I possibly could. 
This photo was kindly sent to me by Victoria from VickisBeauty and it was taken by markxphotos on instagram

I don't think I can actually put into words on how much the girls I met and have been speaking to mean to me so I will put all of their blog links down below so you can have a little snoop, maybe give their blog some lovin while your there!

I'm so gutted that the event has been and gone and now I have absolutely no reason to spend my time shopping for floor length gowns. Hopefully I will get another chance to meet more bloggers this year and I hope I actually have the balls to put myself forward and introduce myself!

Have you met your social media idols? If so tell me all about it down in the comments, I would love to know how you started a conversation with them!
