I know so many people have written about this, so I honestly don't blame you if you can't even bring yourself to read yet another post on it.

 On Saturday I went to the 'Only Way is Blogging' Event hosted by London Beauty Queen. I was pretty nervous, being a new blogger, not really knowing anyone and going totally alone! I turned up outside the bar it was being held in to find that it was empty. Panic. 'I've got the wrong place' immediately came into my mind and I was frantically browsing my stupid Blackberry Internet for the TOWIB blog page. After waiting outside for ten minutes I decided to be brave and walk in anyway. A guy that worked there took one look at me and said 'Its downstairs', pah...how stupid.

It was pretty nervewracking walking in to somewhere and seeing everyone in their little groups. I felt like such a newbie!
Luckily three girls were lovely enough to let me sit with them. Rachel, Charmaine and Angelica.


I had no idea that events like this took place until about a week ago. It was amazing to be able to witness the so called 'blogging community' first hand and meet some truly lovely people. Unfortunately I didnt take as many pictures as I should have but hopefully I can steal the odd one and add them at a later date.
I also met a truly lovely girl called Aysha, we had the same earrings and everything! Pah simple things! Other bloggers I met included Yu, Gemma, Georgina and Stephanie. (Apologies if i've missed people out, I've started following so many more blogs in the last few days that I'm all a Kerfuffle.)







 The event gave us the chance to view make-up tutorials from Fashionista and Vivo, learn more about Photography and HTML and then ask questions to Lily, Zoe and London Beauty Queen. I was pretty shy and just listened to everyone else ask questions, but it was so helpful and gave me a lot to think about!! I would highly recommend an event like this to any new blogger. It was a wonderful (and insightful) day with lovely people and I really hope I will get the chance to see them again!

 Throughout the day I also had a lot of comments on my nails. These were done with the 'Models Own' nail art pen (mentioned in my previous post) and 'Barry M' white nail polish. If you dont have a nail art pen, I think they would be relatively easy to do with black nail polish :)



Oh ... and one last thing. I am looking to change my URL, and the one I would like is available however it doesnt redirect if people still type in this one. This means that even if I post about my new URL, people wont see it because this weblink would have gone. Does anyone know how I can get round this?? Would it be easier to buy a domain??
