On Saturday I was lucky enough to go to LoBlography, a little event thrown together by Heidi at Lomography in their London Newburgh Street store. Having been emailed the list of attendees by Heidi, I was, to be honest, a little terrified about attending! Because, let's be honest, there's nothing as deeply uncool as displaying to the Big Kids of blogging that you are, in fact, just a massive fan-girl.
However, after a rather decadent night at Ronnie Scotts on Friday (their espresso martinis quite literally blew my mind), and an emergency recovery eggs benedict at Charlie's in Portobello, I had been convinced that being a no-show would be embarrassingly lame, and so I tottered off to Soho. And I am so glad that I did!
Heidi had put together a lovely little event with just short of twenty bloggers, where we were given talks by Kat from Gizmodo UK, Sian from Domestic Sluttery, and Dan from Rock My Wedding. We were also given LC-A+s to try out, and indulged in some cupcakes and Bucks Fizz, making for quite the perfect Saturday afternoon!

I was delighted to meet Jazzy from Hivenn, Lily from Red Brick Lipstick, Rececca from It's Cohen, Dina from She Loves Mixtapes, Emily from Under A Glass Sky, and many more wizards of the Blogosphere... And did I embarrass myself with my fan-girlishness? I'm embarrassed to say that yes, I probably did. So if any of you are reading this, I am deeply, deeply sorry for that. I promise I'll pretend to be cooler next time!

All in all, a wonderful afternoon was had by all! Lomography is a very cool little company, with a dedication to film photography and fun, and they're super blogger-friendly, so I'd really recommend getting in touch with Heidi to say "hi". My photos will be ready to collect next Monday, so I'll post them (if any of them come out! Keep your fingers crossed please) then, as well as my photos from the Sardinia St. Tropez that I borrowed to review... Lots of Lomo related posts coming up in the near future, in short!
Thank you so much to Heidi and the whole Lomography team! Please invite me back to your next event, I had such a lovely time!
