My 21st - Part Two

My Plus London Post - yay! Firstly, here is what I wore to the aforementioned event:D My dress is from last season's Grazia range @ Simply Be, & is another of my sale bargains! It's gone down even more now & also comes in black, so if you like it, you should definately snap it up

Thought I should also snap a pic of my hair/face before I left, as travelling on the tube normally makes me all hot/bothered & generally looking a complete mess! It was also bloody windy outside, so I was afraid my hard to tame hair would return to it's normal unruly-ness befre I had even arrived:( Thankfully, it did survive-ish, as did my makeup, hehe!

I left super early, & got there 1 hour before I needed to. I always panic & get lost in London, so I thought it was best to, last time I met Devon, Lauren, Carla etc, I spent half an hour texting Devon because I got rather lost in Kings Cross Station & couldn't find her! Anyway, this time I only got a little lost:P, because I came out of an exit I hadn't planned to. I didn't realise there was more than one exit & the route I had memorised from Google Maps to the Strand Gallery was therefore a bit useless. I did find an electronic street map though, thankfully, or else I'd probably have been wandering around for agggggggges getting more & more lost, & more & more panicky!

Once I got my bearings though, I was okay (I also found the exit I should have come out of!!). Because I was so early I wandered around Villiers Street for a while, &browsed a few shops. Anyway, at about half past I decided to venture down to the gallery, & Lauren very kindly let me in early. Sorry I was such a pain Lauren! This is what the upstairs gallery looked like before everyone else arrived.
Now on to the party....

Valerie & Devon

Downstairs were all the samples & the pop up photo studio (which no, I did not go into, I was too shy, despite much persuasion:P). It was also v hot downstair, so I spent most of my time upstairs near the (open) door:P

Beth!, doing one of her fabulous poses!

Stole this photo from Carla via the Plus London tumblr (hope you don't mind Carla), because I didn't manage to get any action shots of me, as I was so shy! Idk what I am looking at though! I am so useless in front of (other people's) cameras. Sorry to everyone I actually spoke to that night, I am such a shy & socially awkward creature, I basically just nodded & smiled the whole time! Eeek! You were all very lovely & I'm sorry I wasn't more chatty. I did have a lovely time, though, it was awesome to see & meet everyone!

  3. Georgina hun :( You should have said goodbye to me! Amy (the Amy with the huuuuuuuge bow,) and I were looking for you because we wanted to give you hugs and get our picture taken with you, because she said it was your birthday.
    I know you're shy, but trust me when I say you're actually brilliant company to be around, you're a beautiful and sweet girl, and you don't need to apologise for being shy, silly. I found this out at the Yours event and again on Saturday.
    I was really pleased you came, I wasn't expecting you :D
    Your pic of me and Val is better than my one, so I'm gonna steal it when I do my post :P
    I hope your birthday was good fun.
    Much love <3
    Devon xx

  9. Hi Georgina! Oh my~~ I love this outfit! Why does not Finland have these kinda clothes! T__T I have a party coming up in spring and I _have_ to find a new dress and it's kinda mission impossible with these choices in Finland. When it's pretty; it has no sizes. T_T And all these plus size dresses are just awful here... Maybe I'll order it somewhere~
