Bloggers to Biscuits like the proverbial moth to flame…
Last week I was invited to an “Access All Areas” bloggers event at ASOS, not only to take a look at the new spring collection but also to try it on and strut down the famous ASOS catwalk in it!
The event was host to a wide range of fabulous bloggers – including some of my favourites, like Park & Cube; I was so excited to finally meet Shini, and we spent the evening chatting about blogs, photography and finding something for me to wear that was out of my comfort zone! (…and biscuits.)
We were sorted for biscuits, but finding something new for me to try was a bit of a failure..the first dress I picked up wasn’t in my size, so I opted for some pastel pink shorts and heels instead. Whilst 6 inch heels aren’t usually my thing, pink shorts definitely are – I loved the “paper bag” high waist (Find some similar ones here!). So I wasn’t exactly adventurous – which is a shame, especially when there were bright prints and maxi dresses on offer.

Having an ‘Access All Areas’ pass for ASOS was a bit of a surreal experience – i’m always browsing the website, so to be in the room where the catwalk is filmed and the images are taken was odd indeed! We were treated to makeovers and with a little hesitation, took to the catwalk.
I had a fabulous night and met some wonderful ladies, and as if treating us to a VIP evening wasn’t good enough, ASOS threw in a gift voucher at the end to each of us. In true “poor student” style, I spent mine ASAP! It was only when I was searching for something to buy that I reasiled just how much ASOS actually stock – although it didn’t take me long to find a few goodies. Come back soon to see me modelling my new ASOS pieces.
Thanks ASOS! x
