Bloggers Who Brunch Networking

I popped in to London this past weekend to spend some time with the Bloggers Who Brunch people run by the lovely Kirby.

I got the tube from Sloane Square  to our event space in North(?) London, and had chats with Katie from LexiLife and Katherine McMorran who is an amazing photographer. We talked about what apps to edit photos on how to set up your camera to get a blur background and how to feel confident on You Tube. We mingled “networked” ate popcorn and learnt a little more about creating content for our channels and blogs.

The views from our event space were amazing, The Shard, St Pauls and the BT  tower. 3 landmarks in one view!

event space – breather.com

Wood flooring, abstract artwork and pink L shaped sofas. That’s my kind of event space, with roof top view. I’d love to be able to live here.

I made friends with a few ladies and we all went for lunch at Meat Liquor in the North and it was an experience. I had the stranded burger and a root beer which were both delicious. The decor was everyday Saw 2 vibes. There were TV screens with mixed up images on, and cctv of the dining area and your food came on metal trays and your tables were metal. It was an immersive first time experience into Meat Liqour. I’d definitely go back and take my BF.

Story time: I nipped to the loo after lunch and get burst in on. Which of course made me scream. Yet the chap that did the bursting in on left me with the door open. I have the most nerve wracking pee of my life. Then i accidentally threw my oyster card in the bin and dropped my ring down the tube escalator. I mean could I have been any more of a mess? Find Meat Liqour here there are loads all over London.

It wouldn’t be The Curly Haired Girl without an outfit update post. There is a reason this space is a ‘style and life blog’, Style comes first. I of course wore my new favourite jacket. If you follow me on Instagram ( you all really should @ameliaboswell) you would have seen this look already, with the added extra of my Primark sunnies.

Outfit Of The Day in the Fog

I unconsciously dressed to match the weather, the fog has been around all day. So this ootd post looks very moody, and my hair looks extra bright. Golden hair, golden shoes.

I love wearing blue, can you tell? It’s one of my favourite colours and I can’t get enough. My cardigan is a new edition too, it’s a family cardigan. (that sounds odd) My grandma, aunty and mum have all worn it and now it’s mine to wear. I love it to pieces. It looks like late 80’s /early 90’s knit with its  heart panels.

Oversized Pink Shirt

I live so close to London and don’t venture in as much as I would like. But yesterday I spent the day in the big smoke and it was fantastic, Stomping around Bond street and Oxford Street. I went solo and met up with a few fellow bloggers so a little late lunch and a book swap.

(Photos not taken in London)

Think this is the first I’ve consciously bought something pink to wear. I love the dress style of this shirt and the band across the bottom adds a frill. It’s definitely one of the more girlie pieces in my wardrobe.

Also leopard print is everywhere at the moments, so I dug out this coat with it’s on trend tulle trimming. Adding accessorise like my mirrored sunglasses and my shoes make this look a little more special. I loving the fishnet trend and am so excited to wear it with everything again. I couldn’t get my hands on a black pair or fishnet socks so I got white. I think they add another element to the outfit.

70’s Ski Jumper

Après Ski anyone?

I loved last seasons sportswear trend and Pucci’s 70’s take, with their ski style. I’ve muted this trend to fit into my daily style,

This bold graphic ski jumper with heeled tan boots is just the subtle 70’s look I love. I added a silver peace necklace.

Also it’s my birthday today, i’m 23. These photos were taken at lunch with my parents.

Embroidered Jumper

 Last year the sales weren’t for me, i didn’t find a single thing. But this year  The sales this year have been great this year, it hit me a little hard, but it was worth it.

Behold the mesh embroidered jumper of my dreams, and probably yours now. Worn with blue skinny jeans and my trusty long denim jacket.

This jumper would look great over a tight black dress for new years eve.

Photos taken around Westbourne, Dorset.

SoundClash 2016

Sound Clash 2016 – Somerley House Hampshire

Soundclash is the last event of freshers, I’m not really into the type of music that was played. But it was the last event of freshers so it seamed right to send freshers off with a bang.

Considering I’m not really a fan of club music I did watch a few sets and really enjoy them. I enjoyed Marvin Humes, Artful Dodger. I really came to see the Wilkinson set and Pendulum do a DJ set, they were the highlights for me.

70’s Stripes

DSCN1664

My outfit looked so much better without my Long Tall Sally coat, but I knew that I needed it for walking around Poundbury. English weather is unpredictable to say the least. The last time I came to Poundbury there were half the building there are now, which is super odd.  DSCN1651 DSCN1650 DSCN1649 DSCN1661 DSCN1666 DSCN1667

We stopped into my favourite shop Cherryade

DSCN1621 DSCN1622

They are ‘purveyors of super lovely things’ which is exactly what the store is filled with. I want everything they have. The framed art and home-wear are my favourites. Find them online here

Trying to hide from the rain we ducked in and out of shops, and looking at all the pretty houses. We found a little cafe around the corner from Yard, called Bramble.

The 70’s shirt is a H&M find that has been on the blog before. I just love the colour and the flowing sleeves. This time I took of the belt as went for a relaxed look.

Summer Dress at Cosy Club

I headed out to grab a bite with Lucy from Blogger Luce. We sat, ate, chatted and shopped, I just window shopped (nothing caught my attention, shocking I know) I love chatting with Lucy, I can talk about everything with her, but mainly about blogging today.

The first sign of sun and I’m getting my legs out with this dress. I love this dress, an absolute bargain from Primark last year. DSCN1580

DSCN1583

My first ever designer bag got a runaround today. I don’t take her out really ever at all, she’s totally damaged but I’ve had her ages and I just love the pattern and the history. Sparkle ballet flats for all the window shopping.

DSCN1566

We ate at Cosy Club Bournemouth | First time I went I had a milk shake which really wasn’t that great. This time I had sweet potato fries and patatas bravas. I know I just ordered a plate of potato, what can I say, I love it. There are Cosy Clubs all over the UK.

LBD Masquerade

I spent the weekend in London with family celebrating Georgie and Tom’s engagement by attending their masquerade ball.

MJG_3736 MJG_3708

The whole family really got onboard with the masquerade theme and I think we do scrub up pretty well. I found it really hard to dance with a mask on so took it off to party the night away. Not before stopping by the photo booth the pose.
