Motel Rocks & Glossybox bloggers party

Motel Rocks Christmas blogger event

If Motel Rocks was a person it’d be the girl who’s the life and soul of a party, the one who radiates a positive energy and a fun-loving attitude.  Last week the brand invited bloggers – a lot of bloggers – to take a look at their new Christmas collection at a party in central London, an event they held in collaboration with Glossybox.

Upon arriving at the venue we were hit with the sweet scents of candy floss and popcorn: I can confirm that the candy floss was the perfect accompaniment to a couple of glasses of rosé.  Emma from Boom Nails had also set up a stall and spent the evening creating the most amazing nail art for the fortunate few who were quick to get their names down!

It’s really odd to be in a room where you recognise everyone but don’t actually know them!  There were so many bloggers in attendance it would have been impossible to chat to everyone so hi if you were there but I didn’t get round to talking to you!

Of course the clothes were the main attraction – Motel are known for their colourful, figure-hugging dresses and we saw that they also do a killer line of patterned jeans, along with some cute crop tops and rather sexy shorts and pencil skirts.  They were kind enough to gift us all an item of our choice – I really couldn’t decide so I listed 5 things!  I’m sure whatever I’m sent will feature in an outfit post soon!  We’ll also be receiving a Glossybox so I’ll finally get to see what all the fuss is about.  Every month there seem to be a million reviews of them so I doubt I’ll dedicate a full post to it but I will let you know what I think.

I spent most of my evening chatting to Saima (LDN Shopaholic) - who I’ve ‘known’ online for a while so it was lovely to meet her! – and Elle (A Bird In The Hand).  It was also great to see Amy (Wolf Whistle), Daniela (Couture and Crumpets) and Kristbel (I Want You To Know) again, and to meet Rosie (The Budget Beauty Book), Dina (She Loves Mixtapes) and Rachel (Rachel Phipps) in person for the first time.

In fact I spent so much of my evening chatting that I neglected to tweet or even take many photos!  (Oops.)  Thanks a lot to Motel Rocks and to Selina for inviting me to such a fun evening :)

Lots of the items we saw are already available online so click to shop at!

  • This is so cool! I’m so jealous, I’ve always wanted to go to a bloggers party/meet and haven’t gotten the chance yet! Some day I will, though! The cotton candy looks amazing… so do the balloons! Sounds magical.

    Hope you had fun :)

  • It was such a fab evening, if only I had taken more pics! I agree it’s definitely bizarre recognising people you have never met before but it was equally lovely to have the opportunity to meet bloggers and have a good ole natter! The clothes were gorgeous too!
