My FIRST Blogger Event - Nicola Crawford & Angel Armogida














So I was lucky enough to be taken to my first ever bloggers event by the lovely Lucy hosted by Bloggers Love at the Penthouse in Leicester Square. It was an event showcasing Nicola Crawford and her beautiful, handmade themed jewellery and Angel Armogida and her gorgeous and eye catching dresses. I wasn't sure what to expect but it was very grown up and classy. Lucy and I both actually felt very underdressed until we realised they were actually showing off the collection! There were complimentary drinks and cupcakes laid out all over the room and they were also giving manicures as well! 

Nicola had her lovely jewellery out on display and her current collection was based on the theme 'The Secret Garden' inspired by the childhood story by Frances Hodgson Burnett. She bases all her pieces upon her love of nostalgia and narrative and each collection conveys a story which evokes sentiment to each piece. I think that it's a really lovely and unique idea in terms of creating jewellery. She was also kind enough to include a unique key charm in each goodie bag which I thought was a really nice touch.

Angel, who also has a YouTube channel who was the daughter of a professional seamstress, grew up learning the basics of dressmaking and in 2012 decided to pursue a career in fashion. Her collections are centred around evening wear and cocktail dresses. They are very glamourous and some even featured Swarovski crystals to add a bit more glamour to them. She entertained us with a catwalk through the room, parading her collection and even gave us the chance to win one of her dresses by entering a raffle, where the proceeds would go towards Cancer Research which I thought was fantastic. 

Overall I had such a fantastic night, and thank you to Lucy for inviting me, Bloggers Love for hosting and Angel and Nicola also for giving me a perfect first bloggers event experience!
