A few days ago I headed over to the Font on Oxford Road where the team behind Rock on Ruby had organised a blogger meet and clothes swap. In true blogger style we were greeted with cupcakes, sweets and a special Kiss From Ruby cocktail which was delicious! The decor was lovely; gingham tableclothes, bunting and plates of party rings made it feel like a proper party.

The idea was to take all your unwanted clothes and beauty bits, exchange them for Ruby vouchers, then tag the items up with your blog/twitter name and pop them on the rails for other bloggers to browse. After everyone had tagged up and had a drink or two, Holly announced that it was time to choose our pieces and there was a bit of a scramble as a load of fashion crazed bloggers descended in on pieces they'd been eyeing up. Luckily no one was injured and most people came away with all the things they wanted!

I took around ten beauty and ten clothing items with me, so theoretically I could have come back with 20 new pieces.. I came back with about eight items but I love them all, especially the time turner necklace thanks to Emma and the Kiko products, although I don't know who brought those! I also love the idea that my unwanted clothes and beauty bits have gone to good homes with other bloggers, or else were taken to charity after the event.

I was excited to find out that I won the raffle, as I never win anything. My bag contained goodies from Dottie Rocks Designs, Cocoa Brown Tan and Rock on Ruby. The event was a great chance to catch up with some lovely bloggers I've met before (Gail and Laura) and meet some new faces (HayleighJen and Alex) as well as a chance to meet the lovely Holly in person at last! Go and check all their blogs out, as they are all lovely ladies.

If you haven't heard of Rock on Ruby, where have you been? Run by Holly and a small team, ROR create slogan sweatshirts, t-shirts and accessories at great prices. I love the #ROCKTHEGYM range, and the blogger collection, which I've designed a sweatshirt for. I'll pop up another post about the clothing I own from ROR. 

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a #RORBlogSwap every season!
