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!

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.

Vintage Leather Peacoat

Hi, long time no see.

Sorry about that, but anyway have you been watching Girl Boss on Netflix? It’s a loose story telling of the rise of Nasty Gal and I love it. The clothes are heaven and it’s really a captivating story. In true Girl Boss ( Sophia) spirit, myself and a few of my gal pals from university went charity shop hopping. The first shop we stumbled upon was a British Red Cross and I sniffed out this gorgeous tan leather peacoat within the first few seconds. I flung it on and twirled in front of the mirror then twirled to the cash desk and it was all mine, for £5. £5!!

The photos of this look were taken in the water fountains at Southampton’s new Watermark. I was getting splatted by all the water, hence the face pulling.

I controversially style the peacoat with black and I love the look. My trusted black boots that make my legs look miles long and my most precious mini dress. (It’s the dress I met my boy friend in and I wear it every anniversary) To tie in the tan a little more I dug out my ‘seen better days’ Dooney and Bourke bumble bee barrel bag. I think it got water damaged years ago so the black leather has gone grey but it’s mine and I could never replace it. To finish (the cherry on top) are my fan earrings, given to me by a family friend.

I’ve walked through these parks almost everyday and that it’s Autumn for all the lovely colours are perfect for outfit photos. dsc_0183 dsc_0184 dsc_0185 dsc_0191-001 dsc_0192 dsc_0198 dsc_0199

Do you ever have an outfit that you wear and you instantly feel so festive, this outfit does this for me. The cutest boots from Just Fab. They make any outfit a little more special and a burgundy mini skirt and you are away. I love all the different berry tones mixed with the brown of my shoes and the leaves.

Checked Dress at Star Wars

This is what I wore to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. i don’t really have any thoughts about it yet, I enjoyed the film and didn’t once think ‘ this is one long film’. So I guess I liked it and am glad I went. I’m not a film critic, so I’ll leave it there.

I’ve finally taught myself how to curl my hair ( ‘but you  hair is curly’ i hear you cry) When I try to curl my hair no matter that I try the curls never stay in, until now. I’ve found a way for me to have defined curls and have them last, it’s only taken me 21 years!

I wore

dress –Zara

boots –Topshop

lipstick – Rimmel Kate Moss

Denim Jacket and Hot Chocolate

This post should have really been titles ‘ when you ask your brother to take photos for you and you end up with the weirdest collection of photos’, but that would have been to long. DSCN1087 DSCN1088 DSCN1083 DSCN1079 DSCN1077 DSCN1086 DSCN1085 DSCN1084

The Winter Cape

DSCN0987

This cape is everything to me this season. I love swaddling myself in soft warm fabric to keep out the winters wind. The colours are perfect for pairing with anything, winter dresses, trousers, blue jeans. It just works. DSCN0988 DSCN0989 DSCN0990 DSCN0991 DSCN0992

A Million Shades of Blue

DSCN0473Having a day off from work meant I got to spend some quality time with my mum walking around Poole Park, we decided to take ol’ Pip ( our family dog, who is super old and can’t go for long walks anymore) we grabbed a coffee and chatted.

This sailor top is so comfortable and perfect for me, as i live by the sea 😉

DSCN0470My mum joked at how many different shades of blue I was wearing, what can I say I love blue.
