A simply stylish Shoreditch shindig

28 July 2010

Apologies for the 'Bloggers Block' of late, I'm not really sure why it's come about.  There's a lot I want to write about but my head is all over the place (I'm still unpacking/chucking to make my room liveable) but the worst is over now.  Everyone knows I love a good meet-up and after being in New York for almost 7 months (when will I stop going on about that), my knowledge of the London Blogger Scene was a bit rusty, so I was delighted to know that'd I'd be back in time for a Shoreditch meet-up organised by the lovely Fiona.  The venue was the Drunken Monkey, the menu was dim sum and cocktails, so I  gladly made the trek into East London (albeit whilst comparing the furnace-like Tubes with the breezy subways).  Once I'd arrived I loved seeing British Style in all it's finery through all the bloggers (Jennifer even has an East London Street Style blog that I can't stop browsing), which definitely has an element of thrown-together fun. 

I hope I haven't soured the relationships with my new found friends by stealing all their pictures!  Please forgive me Natasha, Kate, Mariana and Lira!

Bloggers are an open, friendly sort of species and conversations ranged from weddings to facial expressions, though unfortunately the atmosphere was rather loud and I probably mis-heard a few things.  I fully overindulged due to the endless amounts of set-menu food and had to leg it to the last train home, but the others managed to spend the night dancing away in the Electricity Showrooms. How I wished I lived in Central London!

I look forward to seeing my new buddies again and meeting some more over the next few months; these are just the kind of people to get me loving London again!
