My friends boyfriend had got the tickets for us from Applause Store and we were really excited! So 5 of us got the train into London in the afternoon…

They worked really hard to put on a fantastic day for 30 of us bloggers! The day started off with a meeting at Starbucks and then we separated off into little groups. Terri, Tereza, Hayley, Erica and myself wondered around and…
