Collection turns 25!

Photobucket Photobucket On Wednesday I received a lovely message from Collection (formerly Collection 2000) inviting me and a friend to attend their 25th birthday party at the 24 bar in London. Despite the short notice, with a few frantic texts, myself and Leanne were soon on our way to London.

The location of the party was brilliant and central - there was a photobooth which we just couldn't resist - we put on our *best* blogger poses for that! I've nabbed Alice's photo of our efforts. Don't be too jealous, we can't help being that hot ;-)
Entertainment included performances by Diana Vickers and new girl band, Fan Fair. Guests could also get a Collection makeover (as seen above!) so we could try out all the new products. The new packaging for Collection has a more grown up feel - it's lovely actually because my first ever 'real' makeup was Collection 2000 so it's like I've grown up with them. We were given some of the new bits to try and so far I have been really impressed with them - I will do some reviews next month.

As this was my first 'blogger event' one of the best bits for me was meeting some of you lovely bloggers - obviously I've known Leanne for yeeeeeears (we both have embarrasing photos of each other) so it was really lovely to talk to the girls behind the blogs I have been reading for yonks!

Overall I had a really great evening and I'm looking forward to meeting more of you in the future!

The gorgeous girls I met were:
Alice - Super Gorgeous
Sarah - My Sentimental Heart
Corrie - Dizzy Brunette 3
Sarah - City Girls Fashion Box
Laura - Belles Boutique
Aisling - Fash-ling
Livia - Princess Livia

There was lots of other bloggers there that I would liked to have said 'Hi!' too but unfortunately didn't get to - next time!

Thank you for reading! xo


  1. It was nice meeting you at the event. And thanks for linking me! x

  2. Very jealous of you knowing another blogger! I've only been invited to a few events but as I'm a train novice and wouldn't know anyone there I've always been a bit wary about going alone! This sounded like a fun event though, the photobooth photos are very sweet! x
