I stupidly took very few photos (bad blogger!). The lovely girls over at mystreetchic.com allowed me to steal this photo!

We arrived at Temple Meads and joined the circle of bloggers! (we were all stood around in a random circle, it seemed to naturally form whenever we stopped any where!)
I'll be honest, I was crapping myself! I've not been in the situation of meeting strangers for years! The last time I was in that situation was when I started my job 7 or 8 years ago! In my group of friends I'm usually the gobby one, but at this meet I was very quiet compared to my usual self! Hopefully after a few more meets I'll start to come out of my shell!
Bee walked us over from Temple Meads to Cabot Circus where Lyzi was waiting for us all. We then made the decision to go to Frankie and Benny's straight away as we were all starved after travelling to Bristol.
After food we attempted some shopping, I think we all bought stuff in Primark (see the bags under the table in the photo above!), even myself despite the fact that I can't afford it! We then wandered around a few more shops but our hearts weren't really in it, we were all so tired so we just decided to head to the pub!
I bought a pair of tights reduced to £1 and a black cardi, I'm a sucker for anything with a pretty brooch attached to it!
We went to Start the Bus where we all relaxed with a few drinks before meeting with Gina and Sian from mystreetchic. They joined us for a few drinks and explained the whole concept behind their website before taking some snaps of us for their website.

I had a lovely day and all the girls are so nice! Massive thanks to Bee and Lyzi for organising this event! I am now super excited about the London meet on Saturday and the Christmas Bristol meet! I, amongst others, have decided to look into accommodation to stay the night for that one so that we can have a night out without worrying about getting trains back.
Kim and Rosie have also written about the day.
