A few weeks back this rather exciting invitation (below) arrived for me. Not only was it an invite to the first Christmas event of year for me, but it was also from BOOHOO! Yes, Boohoo - one of my favourite brands that actually sells their gorgeous range in plus-sizes too. The invitation is the CUTEST! You can see my reaction to unboxing it here.
This is hands down one of the best blogger events I've ever been to. So much thought went into it, everything from the invitation to the mahoosive Christmas tree with presents beneath it (for us!), an incredibly good actor playing Santa and mingling like there was no tomorrow, and beautifully laid tables with a personalised card and gift at each place setting.
Whilst we waited for dinner we all enjoyed the open bar (maybe a bit too much…) and were allowed to choose an item of clothing from Santa's gifting lounge. I was dead nervous as I didn't know anyone, but it's amazing how conversation can start freely flowing between people who blog and who have drank much prosecco. Ahem.
We were served a full Christmas dinner, had crackers to pull and festive jumpers to wear. The prosecco kept coming, and so did the dodgy cracker jokes and trivia – plus whole a lot of blog chat and a chance to talk in depth with the lovely Boohoo PR and marketing team.
You can see our tipsy shenanigans, which bloggers were there, and what was in those stockings in my vlog at the bottom of this post. I also vlogged at the Boohoo press day which was the following week. This was a brilliant chance to view the plus-size Spring/Summer 2015 collection, and we had the best fun getting metallic tattoos, having mojito ice-lollies and rinsing the photo-booth.
Thanks so much Boohoo! I've had a blast at both events, and I love the new SS15 collection.
