Two ladies and a whole lotta wool
If I tell you that Danni and I were excited to be asked to our first ever blogger event, it would only just about be sufficient enough as a description; we were well-chuffed. Not only that, but it was for the Craft Candy app launch, and we’d recently partnered with them for our first ever blog competition! A lot of firsts. It was nearly our first ever business cards, but we ran out of time for those.
The team at Craft Candy put on an awesome event with (wait for it) goodie bags!! A win every time in my book. The goodie bags were not only polka dot, but also full of all kinds of awesome and amazing things. Check out my Vine post which shows just some of the awesome content.
And of course a picture of the bag itself:
This sums up how two bloggers feel about a goodie bag (imagine my being this happy too!):
It’s what’s on the inside that counts; and look what’s inside!
And then there were cakes, from the fabulous The Tea’s Knees (their banoffee cupcake was devilishly good):
Things just got better and better, the cupcakes were amazing and made for a fantastic dinner:
And then there was gin; oh the ruin! But despite the groggy head the next morning, this grog was pretty darned good. Gin courtesy of Bermondsey Gin which (a fella told me on the way out) you can buy in Harrods:
There were balloons and fairy lights *swoon*:
Then I discovered shrinky dink for the first time, and Danni and I considered various brand approaches in the form of wearing our names around our necks (not at all cult like):
Danni and I certainly showed the love for the Maid of Gingerbread “tweet” cookies, it got even better when our very own blog name appeared on one. Excitement (fuelled by the gin and shrinky dink fun) was at fever pitch:
Danni is so much better at photos than me!
