Have you ever been so tired you can't even spell the simplest of words? That's how I'm feeling - it's suddenly hit me. We took the 8:15 a.m. train yesterday to Leicester, to Next HQ, for the most wonderful blogger's event, having had a girl's sleepover at Shini's place with Kit and Jen and we stayed up all night (more about that coming up in future posts: I just can't seem to write anything that makes sense right now.
I can't explain the rules because the tiredness has just set in, but they were very deserved winners. (We all had to style our own outfits - these aren't the outfits they styled, this is them in their civilian attire).
There will be more posts, and better posts. You have my word. But right now, we've had the film 2001 out from LoveFilms for ages and if we don't watch the end tonight, I've threatened Mr. Dot that he can't choose any more films. And I've just squandered all this time uploading and painstakingly creating folders for every day of the month of January, even tho each date was clearly labelled December. I don't dare operate heavy machinery. I can't even show you all the photos I want to, but I have allowed myself one shot, of the pudding (my favourite, sticky toffee) and the lovely roses, in a room filled with stylish English roses.. and a few from other countries, too.
The winners from left to right are: Sandra of 5 inches and up, Shini of Park & Cube, Emma of FashionBite, Daniella of the F Blog, and Jennifer, aka the Style Crusader. Frances (of Happy Because) and I were sitting at the table with Shini, Sandra, Jen and Daniella when the winners were called, thus making us the only two losers at the table, but she pointed out that it was mathematically impossible that we'd all win. Besides, everyone that showed up yesterday was a winner. All you lovely flowers.
Big thank you to Jenny and Katie at Jam, and Emma and Helen and everyone else at Next who made this so amazing. More coming up.
(and p.s. sorry: I should have clarified: this was just what they wore to the event: the actual outfits they designed - the winning outfits - coming up in future posts, so stay tuned, you lovely bloggeristas!) xox
