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.
