I was recently invited to attend an evening at the Birmingham Bullring for a Brum Bloggers x Accessorize collaboration event to celebrate the store’s upcoming Autumn collections.
Before the event I met up with my wonderful blogging pal Chloe for drinks, a catch up and to share excited squeals about the evening ahead. We then set off for an evening of styling and networking, and en route we picked up the lovely Katrina, who Chloe’s known for years and was desperate to introduce me to! The three of us set off and soon found ourselves surrounded by all things glittery, metallic and pastel infused. 100% Instagrammable.
We were warmly welcomed by Ting, who had organised the evening, and told us a bit about what to expect from the event, from the opportunity to win some Accessorize goodies to the mini bar. As in, a literal mini bar – to our right was a drinks stand with bartenders from The Botanist, one of Birmingham’s most renowned bars in the city centre, where we could head over to pick up drinks throughout the evening. Pretty ideal, right? Oh, and there were plenty of Candy Kitten sweets thanks to Accessorize.
We spent the evening meeting likeminded bloggers with a love for personal style, which means an atmosphere filled with creativity, ‘Oh my goodness, where are your shoes from?!’ and plenty of camera shutter sounds!
In experimenting with Accessorize’s latest collections we took to the specifically assigned ‘flat lay tables’ – yes, this is definitely a blogger event – to try out different accessory combinations and new textures, materials and cuts.
It was so lovely to have a space where we could take our time to wander around the store (drink in hand) meeting fellow female content creators whilst we learned about each other’s passions, projects and personal style.
Thank you to Ting and to the absolutely lovely staff at Accessorize Bullring – I met so many incredible women, discovered some wonderful blogs, and had a brilliant time!
