Motel Rocks Press Day Blogger After Party!


On Wednesday I travelled down to London for the Motel Rocks blogger party!
These were my travel essentials, forever being unorganised and having to paint my nails on the train! Those cards are my photography business cards, (there's a different picture on each one, got to collect them all ^_^) I decided to pen my blog url on them, which was handy so I could tell people about this blog :)

Met up again with my new blogger friend Amy Valentine who I went to the Missguided blogger event with a couple of weeks ago, which you can read about here. We also met up with Hannah who guided us to the Motel showroom with a little help of good old google maps again ^_^

Upon arriving we were greeted with lots of sweets and sushi and offered slush puppies, I being greedy of course asked for a slush puppy with a mix of both flavours!



I absolutely loved the 90's theme of the event! Part of the showroom was transformed into a bedroom from that era, complete with inflatable chairs, lava lamps, polly pockets, boy bands and girl group posters on the walls, and of course there was Friends playing on a tv! They really went all out! There was also a board game called "Dream Phone", is it just me though who's never heard of that?! Perhaps it is because I was born just in the 80's??
I NEED the black and white vertical stripe crop top, I swear crop tops are all I'm going to wear this summer! I have been wearing a lot of monochrome since last autumn, I think it's something I can easily continue through this year.

There was a mix of current collections, a preview of things to come soon and also a sneak peak for their A/W. It was exciting to get to see it now, as later this year I shall be photographing some of the items for work, for those of you who don't know, I'm the photographer for Loveclothing.com :)

The collections showcased different themes, monochrome prints, luxurious and embellished party dresses, rich plum and turquoise swirling paisley prints, and not forgetting tie dye, clashing prints, religious symbols and of course a a dress with a pegasus on! <3

Loved their new collection of swim wear, really pretty bikinis and swim suits, you could easily wear the bodies much like black milk clothing ones in the day with shorts or a skirt, jeans etc!

I also loved their denim dungarees, I haven't jumped on this bandwagon yet as I'm worried I will look about 12 in them, but theirs are so lovely and SIMPLE! I hate it when people shove pockets and things on the front of an item and ruin it!

Around the showroom there were different things you could try, including temporary spray in hair colour by Colour Xtreme, glitter and temporary tattoos by Skin Art, and some beautiful henna by a lovely lady callled Madina
I went for getting some henna, which I absolutely love! I haven't had henna done since I was 7, so I was excited to finally get to do it again!

I was snapped by Selina mid process for Motel Rocks Instagram! I am such an instagram addict, so this got me very excited!

Here's another instagram image from Motel Rocks of myself and Lucia, I loved her whole outfit, her hair and head chain looked amazing! I look a bit odd here though!

This was my amazing goodie bag from the event, I cannot wait to try out these products, I've especially wanted to try the Palmers coco butter for awhile now!

A massive thank you to Selina and the rest of the team for organising such a fantastic event!

  1. I love the 90's theme! I'm a 90's kid myself so looking at the party decorations was like having a glimpse of my childhood. I bet you get Loveclothing.com freebies since you're their photographer.
