London Christmas Blogger Meet Up

At the end of November I spent the day in London with some lovely people celebrating the start of Christmas the best way!

I headed off on the train to London just before 10am on Saturday, it was a little nippy, but not too bad considering how cold it had been throughout the week. I had a bit of a wait at Sevenoaks station due to some 'technical issues', but managed to get into Charing Cross without too much of a delay. I then dared to enter the Tube and head a couple of minutes to Leicester Square to meet up with my lovely tall friend Kim :)

We then headed to the venue for the meet up - Tiger Tiger in Haymarket. We grabbed  a cheeky coke as we were gasping from our train/tube journey's. Then we were joined by the lovely Emma who had been co-organising the event. A bit of chatting and sorting later and we had been joined by more lovely ladies. It was great to meet new bloggers, and have the chance to open our lovely gifts. We did Secret Santa and had been assigned another blogger to buy for, therefore we were given a gift by someone else. I got given a lovely gift bag with some good looking treats in :)

We all also got a goodie bag from the organisers Claire and Emma...

We got some great bits in there, along with the xmas chocolates, and a candy cane, we got a piece of jewellery, a wooden 'I love blogging' heart, face mask, bath bomb and some other little lovely bits. 

After some more chatting and mince pie eating, we all left Tiger and Tiger and embarked on shopping in London. A group of 6 or us headed up Regent Street for Liberty's....

Their Christmas shop was so pretty! Lots of lights, Christmas decorations and presents. We had a little wander around, then headed back downstairs for a walk through Carnaby Street. It was so pretty!

After a stroll down Carnaby Street, we had become just three - Myself, Emma and Kim. We navigated our way to the Hummingbird Bakery in Soho, where we each picked up a little something for our journey's home. And here, we also gained another lady in the form of Leah Shafik, and the four of us headed to Nando's for some dinner. 

After some more chatting and a lovely chicken burger, we all headed our separate ways, with me and Kim trying to squeeze into the tube station! It was sooo busy, but managed to get back to Charing Cross in about 20 mins. Then it was home time, and got a nice seat on the train. Then Mike picked me up from Sevenoaks and we popped back to his brother's for a little family Christmas get together. was time to head home and eat our Hummingbird goodies :)

It was soooo good :)

A massive thank you to Emma and Claire for organising a great meet up.
