So finally here are some photos from Thursday's International Women's Day blogger meetup!
The night was fantastic and I had a TOTAL BALL - when I wasn't running around like a blue-arsed fly! Thanks again to everyone who turned up and donated so generously! The total we managed to raise was £222.50, which is fantastic considering there was only around 30 of us who made it in the end so a HUGE well done to everyone :)
If my calculations are correct it means we've raised enough to train a couple of midwives, a few teachers and even help several women start up their own businesses in the developing world so I'm absolutely delighted!
It was really lovely to meet so many other Scottish bloggers (we are a totes friendly bunch!), especially ones who I've been reading for a while and feel like I know already! Those of you I didn't get to chat with for as long, let's sort that out by getting another get together sorted soon, yeah? Maybe Edinburgh this time...?
Finally I just want to say thanks again to everyone who made it along and especially to Rani who helped me out and baked all those amazing caked and did the Shellac nails. YER A STAR MATE! Thanks also to my Maw for the heavy lifting and general dogsbodyness, couldn't have done it without her. And to Laura from Oxfam who gave a great opening speech and helped remind us why we were there.
Also, thanks too to the brands who kindly donated items for the raffle and goody bags: John Frieda, BM Beauty, Bomb Cosmetics, Pure Spa, Leighton Denny Nails, Lomography Cameras, Osco Berber Oil, Schuh, Browns Glasgow, Cherryloco, Rebecca Torres, Miso Funky, and loads more cos my brain is mush and I've forgotten them all.
YAY! Good show lads, we done well. So when's the next one?
