This week I was invited to attend Yours Clothing’s Blogger breakfast for the launch of their new test-a-tattoo app and so yesterday I got up extra early and even brushed my hair (not that you can tell in any of the photos *yay*) and made my way over to the Bourne & Hollingsworth building in Islington.
Unfortunately the transport strikes turned what was supposed to be a simple 30 minute journey into a one and a half hour journey – leaving me a hot mess, literally sweating buckets and anxious as anything by the time I got there.
Thankfully the beautiful setting and the lovely people put me at ease and of course, me being me, within minutes I was oversharing over coffee with a bunch of strangers *yay for nerve induced talking*
How stunning is the room where the event was held?!
I loved all the pretty plants everywhere – it would be #housegoals except I’d never manage to keep them alive!
Beautiful breakfast spread
Over this delicious breakfast I got to know the other bloggers (links below!) and the wonderful Barbara Nobody from Parlour Tattoo who talked with us about how she got into tattoo artistry, shared her designs and some funny stories with us too. It definitely made us all giggle when we realised we pretty much all had similarly dodgy star tattoos from when we were younger!
Me hard at work designing tattoos – ignore the awful hair!
Michaela from Cardiffornia Gurl blog testing out the app
And then having her tattoo design drawn on in pen!
The fab Jemma from Mayflower Blogs clearly telling us something really exciting and entertaining!
Couldn’t say no to a glass (or two) *hic*
And all too soon the breakfast was over and I had to rush back South of the river but i’ll be playing around with my app (check it out here) and hopefully seeing Barbara soon for my next bit of ink! I also got the sweetest goody bag filled with fab Your Clothing pieces including a fluffy scarf and some fab jewellery *feeling lucky*
Thanks for a lovely morning @yoursclothing and so good to meet all you girls!
