Blogger Meet Up & Squad Goals!

Hey Everyone!

I'd like to tell all you wonderful people about the recent blogger meet up I attended on Sunday!
 I travelled to Dundrum with Grace (special shout out to Grace's Mam for giving me a lift) to meet 5 of the loveliest bloggers! Grace and I were early and after various comical attempts of trying to locate the meeting point (including walking past the designated area, round of applause, if you please) we stood around, filled with exhilaration, nerves and excitement. 

Jane was next to arrive, with Grace and I running to greet her (and probably scaring her, sorry!) Next to arrive was Chloe, Aoife, Sarah and Celine. With the Squad assembled, we went to Eddie Rockets with our brilliant 'Tour Guide' Jane! We sat in one large booth and had lunch. A highlight was definitely when Jane whipped out her selfie stick (the exact same as mine, what are the odds?) and began taking selfies of the group! I think poor Grace nearly fainted when she saw it. (The stares of the people in the restaurant were of confusion and amusement and caused lots of giggles later on) 

Afterwards, we went window-shopping in Bershka and Penneys (and awkwardly bumping into my cousin, small world!) as well as having a cold and frosty experience in Starbucks which led to a very swift exit. The cameras, phones and selfie sticks emerged once again and a mass frenzy of selfie-taking occurred. Soon sadly, it was time to part ways, not before more selfies, giggles, socialising and laughing. 

It truly was a wonderful experience to meet girls who's blogs I read and comment on. The realisation that like me, they are normal girls and not just photos on a laptop screen is truly humbling. It was a brilliant day, spent with fantastic company, all the girls are so nice, bubbly, energetic and carefree. I think it can definitely be said that an excellent day was had by all. We are 'The Squad' with our Squad Goals as well as realising that people on elevators look sad. (No regrets) 

Down below are some photos from the meet up!
