The first event Michael and I attended this week was Lastminute.com‘s launch party for Oh You Lucky Bloggers, which is a monthly list of the top travel and lifestyle blogs about the good stuff. Just in case you’re wondering – No, I am not on the list…my only aspirations to grandeur here is the fact that my blog is on the alltop.com expat top blogs (which I am quite chuffed about even though I didn’t know what alltop was at the beginning ;)). Maybe I should blog more about the free stuff I get to do in London? ;).
Well, the event started with drinks for everyone and mingling. We then got some talks from a couple of people, though I am not sure I got the point of the presentations in that environment from everyone who gave the talks. But maybe that’s me – I’m strange! – and I’ve got presentations going out of my ears right now so I really want to get to the point of stuff when I have to hear others!
Following the presentations the food came out – weee…delicious stuff! Though we were located on the opposite side from where the food was coming out – which did not allow much to reach us…boohoo! The evening then ended with a raffle but I wasn’t lucky there too :). It seems like I’ve been an unlucky girl!
Nevertheless it was great to meet people who’s blog’s I’ve been reading, like LLO, who is one of the nicest, happiest girls there I think :), meet up again with Epicurienne, and get to know some new ones to follow like Krista from Londonelicious and Karen from Europe a la carte.
One thing I want to say though after this and a couple of other experiences lately: are all Americans THAT excitable???? OMG! I don’t think I can ever go to live there!
