A Motel Xmas @ Floripa, Shoreditch

23 November, 2012

On Monday afternoon, I jumped on a coach up to London for the Motel Rocks blogger's Christmas party that took place in the trendy tropical-themed bar, Floripa in the heart of Shoreditch. I met up with Toni from Fashion Your Seatbelts beforehand, whom I hadn't seen in far, far too long! We were greeted by the lovely Selina and the other Motel girls, who were all ever so warm and welcoming. As we were one of the first 50 guests to arrive, we were allowed to pick one item from the new collection for free! The upcoming collection itself is beautiful and perfect for the festive party season with plenty of sparkles, sequins and chiffon. I particularly fell head over heels for the Tera dress, which has a velvet bodice and a tutu skirt with patterned detail at the hem.

The whole night was lovely as we were treated to delicious, festive (but deadly) cocktails that included one delicious apple and cinnamon drink that I will be trying to recreate at home! Lee Stafford himself was also there with his team styling guest's hair. I would have loved to have had my hair done, but I was too impatient to queue and it could be said that Toni and I got a little carried away with the photobooth. You can see for yourself below:

The entire night was so much fun that I didn't get too take that many photos (a couple of these are taken from Toni and Motel!). I finally got to meet some wonderful ladies that are the brains behind the blogs I read and we were even given a big box of goodies upon our exit. I was lucky enough to get a selection of make-up from My Face Cosmetics. Thank you to Motel for a wonderful night!
