OOTD: Hello Blogger Meet Up Brisbane

On Saturday I finally met up with a few of the other fabulous Brisbane bloggers! I was so excited to finally exchange real words with these women that I had read so much about and left feeling like I'd made some awesome mates!

Front row L-R: Ben, Amy, Dani, Zoe, Hayley, Sheri
Middle row L-R: Deb, Kate, Me, Danielle, Lisa, Amy, Suger
Back row L-R: Lisa, Talia

(Group piccy from Talia, and a huge thanks to her doing all the hard yards with these links, uh huh, I stole them ;)

Organised by Hello Blogger Events, we headed out to Garuva Hidden Tranquility Restaurant & Bar in the Valley and for $25 a head, was super surprised with the amount of awesome food we chowed down on. Ben and I were running a little late, so missed out on happy hour, but definitely indulged in the killer cocktail list (this I'm thinking may have led to my mega overshares lol ;)

It was a really fun, easy going atmosphere. No topic was taboo and I think most of us got on really well. Mind you, a room full of fantastic, outgoing women who I know like to take pictures and talk about themselves- sounds just like me! So I was pretty sure we would all hit it off! ;)

 Mega lol's at this photo of Deb and Danielle in the top left corner; we tried for ages to get a get natural pic and decided that this rocking one was the best lol ;)

Yay to new friends!!!

The food was good, the cocktails were rad and the company was fabulous. The perfect recipe for a rocking night out. Although we did have to sit on the floor while we were eating. One day when I'm all famous and such (:-P), I'll write a book: The perfect ice breakers; Number One: sticking your foot in someone's lap! It seemed to work pretty well lol ;)
Dress: Torrid, Jacket: Kmart, Tights: BigW

And of course the all important question- what to wear! I choose this super cute little Torrid bubble hem dress. I wore some tights underneath it (because of the whole sitting on the floor business) and threw my trusty light jacket over the top.

Thankyou for an awesome night ladies! I can't wait for the next one! :)

  7. I love how you look! you I am wearing your exact same color and I also have tights today, I laughed when I first saw your pictures. You look beautiful and the dress is gorgeous (not only because of the color :-)) It looks like a great time.
    Back home there is a lounge/ restaurant where you sit on the floor on top of pillows and the roof is low is kind of awkward but I love sitting on the floor to eat.
    Have a great week.
