Fashion Bloggers in the Wild

It was that time of the month again – blogger meetup time that is!  Our group expands everytime and it’s always so amazing to reconnect with the bloggers I already know well and to get to know some lovely new faces better too.

I met up with Cee of Coco and Vera first and we were soon joined by Mina of Faboulista.  After a brief yet shocking encounter with a “lady of the night”, Louise of Fifth Sparrow managed to make her way to us, as did Cara of a fashion love affair.  I came up with the amazing (ridiculously corny) idea of us doing that famous Beatles shot of us crossing the street – pretty stupendous right? ….right?!

We then meandered over to Cobre Restaurant, one of my favourite spots in the city, and were joined by the lovely Lynn of hearted girl.  The tapas at Cobre are out of this world, and given that these blogger meet-ups usually involve alcohol in one way or another, we of course indulged in several jugs of their delicious rosé sangria.  I was so happy that Jen of Prairie Girl in the City and Melissa of Miss Melissa were able to join us later in the evening too – I’ve only met these girls a couple times, but both are so lovely and fun to be around.  So happy that our blogger family here in Van is growing and developing, it’s really special that we’re not only able to form connections through our blogs but in our normal day-to-day lives as well.

Thank you to both Ian Lloyd (Cee’s wonderful husband) and Louise for the pictures!

If you haven’t entered my giveaway for a Principessa Bellina Box Set, do it now!  It takes two seconds (minimal hoop-jumping I promise!) and the products are really exquisite.  Contest ends this Friday, September 2nd!

    The Beatles style photo idea definitely was stupendous… I love the way the photos turned out! But then I might be biased, considering how found I am of all of the gorgeous people in them. It was fabulous to see you as always, and to enjoy a couple of pitchers of sangria with you 🙂 And I love that necklace every time I see it, but always forget to ask, where on earth did you find something so unique? I must know.
    PS: Coming to visit you at work ASAP 🙂

    yahhhhhh! i have loved these shots of you girls and it sure was a great gathering. meeting new friends and catching up with you & Cee was awesome!!!!

    i think the best part about the after shots is that i can actually admire everyone's outfits a big bunch. when we're all there i'm focusing on faces, expressions and stories so i don't catch all the fine elements each girl has got going on. it's rad to relive it here, you're all so beautiful. xoox ♥
