Adventures in Leeds – Bloggers Meet up: Photos Galore

There are not many bloggers events organised in the north of England: Fact! So when there is one, with an opportunity for  cheeky boogie and drinks afterwards, it would be rude not to attend, right? Last Saturday, I had the pleasure to attend a big bloggers' meet up in Leeds, meet up organised by the lovely Ray @RayWhoisShe and Tor @tornumber9.

I was, as usual incredibly nervous about attending. I always dread this moment when my blogger friends and acquaintances who never seen in my real life realise that I have an incredibly kind camera and notice the big gap between my flattering angle posy blog photos and the reality. So I gave the activities of the day a miss and arrived late afternoon, when the sun had gone down a little bit. Did it help? A little bit but not much. I can't believe how nervous I was. I felt really self conscious, I felt so much older than everyone else, but the lovely warm welcome from Ray and my partners in crime Ellie and Cat, and the flowing wine really helped a lot with the nerves.


I had planned this day in my head for so long. I had imagined I would have lost 10 pounds of weight for the event, that I would be wearing some lovely French manicure and the most outrageous evening eye makeup. In the end, I turned up at my fattest point ever in my life, minimal makeup (no eyeshadow whatsoever and just some king kong lashes and foundation), and wearing some tracksuit bottoms as I don't have many daywear nice clothes to wear which suit my new fuller figure.


Aaanyway, enough about my insecurities. Let's have a look at some photos, shall we?

Change of clothes and getting ready to go out. I have tried to take pictures of my eye makeup but failed at capturing the glitter on my eyes. Lipstick and a bit of bronzer was applied after photo. I need to go on bronzer and blusher classes for dummies and learn once and for all.

You all looked fab and as if it was a great day/evening. I nearly gate-crashed, my son is now studying in Leeds, but I felt an aged old woman would cramp everyones's style ;-) Thanks for the pics.

You seem really skinny and tiny. I'm kind of worried I'm blind or something because you don't even look chubby. And I'm a cheeky bitch so would hardly lie.
