London Fashion Week often brings some of the most exciting opportunities of the year – and the season just gone was no different, with a variety of incredible events, locations and lunches. One of my favourites deserved a post of it’s very own – The Rare London SS15 Bloggers Breakfast at the amazing Savoy Hotel – just a few minutes walk from all the action of Somerset House.
Hosted to celebrate the launch of the new season collection, Rare very kindly laid on an amazing spread for bloggers passing by – with a colourful array of muffins, croissants, pancakes and french toast – all of which soon appeared on many Instagram feeds across the blogosphere. While munching on (one too many) muffins, we were also granted the opportunity to browse some of the incredible new releases – which included a banana print two-piece and a gorgeous white daisy kimono (which I had my eye on from the beginning).
As an online shop-o-holic, it was such a treat to see the pieces before they went live online – and I can’t wait to treat myself to a couple of favourites as we get closer to summer.
One of the highlights – for me, of any blogging event is the opportunity to meet and chat to fellow bloggers – each of whom are like-minded writers, photographers and creatives. Living in Bournemouth for the majority of the year (although only one year left now – wahay) has meant that I often feel a bit out of the loop of the blogging world, but it’s so lovely to put faces to the blogs that I follow all year round.
This year, I managed to catch up with Em Sheldon, who is a complete jet-setter and rarely in the country – so this was a real treat, as well as Sarah Ashcroft, whose blog I adore – and Victoria from InTheFrow, who has amassed a huge following – and I’m so excited to watch her future successes! Having lacked a little in blog motivation in the weeks prior to the event, I left feeling full of inspiration and ideas – the sign of a successful day!
If treating lucky bloggers to a gorgeous spread wasn’t enough, Rare also laid on some fabulous goody bags (complete with a personalised necklace with my name on it!) and The London Make-Up School were on hand to re-do our ‘dos’ and polish up our make-up!
Overall it was an amazing event – it’s ones like these that make me feel so privileged to be a blogger and to be granted these incredible opportunities. When I set up scarlettlondon.com, I didn’t think I’ve ever obtain more than 10 readers – let alone step foot in the grandeur of The Savoy – how exciting! Thank you to Sophie for the invitation and to Rare London for a breakfast to remember!
