I feel very lucky to be a blogger, because you get to some really fun things.
One such thing for me was the #joaniechristmas event hosted by Sugar Junction. Joanie Clothing is an independent brand based here in the UK, and to showcase their winter range they invited a few of us to the Northern Quarter for afternoon tea, hot chocolate, mulled wine and calligraphy! The calligraphy was led by Joyce Lee aka Artsynibs – I’ve been following her on Twitter for a while so was excited to finally have a go. It was very therapeutic and relaxing!
They made a huge effort with everything, and it made for a great evening. I also got to catch up with a few old blogger friends from Sheffield, as well meeting some new ones based in or near Manchester.
The goodie bags were extremely generous too – cute socks, cat tattoos, macarons and even a voucher for free gloves! I redeemed the voucher very quickly – and accidentally bought a dress in the process.
