On Monday, I had a lovely day out with some of my favourite UK bloggers. Lauren, from Pocket Rocket Fashion, Devon, from Fat Nurse, Steph, from Button's Bows & Brogues, Carla, from Messy Carla, Kat, from Plus Size Beauty, & myself all went to Petersborough to chat to Yours & have a guided tour around their warehouse.
Once we were inside, we were led to the boardroom, where we immediately had plates & plates of food put in front of us. We all chatted over lunch, & oncce we were done we spent even longer chatting to Yours.
Then we got to go on a tour around the stock rooms, etc. There were so many clothes, & the whole place was like a maze. I don't think I would have been able to find my way out, if I had got left behind:P
One of the most fun parts of the day was walking into the room where Yours makes the catwalk videos it puts on it's site (a feature I always find useful). We all posed at the end of the catwalk & then did our best model impression as we walked down it. As you can see, my attempt is rather poor, hehe! Everyone else looked great though!
Group photo time!
When the tour was over, we went back to the boardroom to try on lots of clothes. A rail was brought in, but we were also told to look on the website, & see if there was anything specific we wanted to try on.
Everyone had great fun trying on their favourite things. I did try on the cream fur coat, but I fear that fur (faux or not), in such a large quantity is not for me, even though I love it on other people! Carla looked ultra glam in the same coat, whilst I just looked like some form of mountain monster, hehe!
Then, sadly, it was time to go home. :( I had a really great day out, it was lovely to meet people who share my passions. It was also a bit surreal, I remember sitting at lunch & wondering if I was really here, sitting with my fave bloggers. This is one of the best parts of blogging, forget the negative comments, the haters, the weird creepy photoshoppers, having the opportunity to be part of a day like this really makes blogging worthwhile. And that's not even mentioning all my lovely readers & followers, who support me everytime I post! You make blogging worthwhile too :)
