Hey Guys,

So after having had very little sunshine and for me, no holidays away it's hard to believe that summer is over and September has arrived. However, September for me brings new challenges including the start of my final year at university, something I'm very excited about. September also means 'fashion', with so much focus on the industry worldwide, I find it's a really exciting time, not to mention it gives me the perfect opportunity to add some new pieces to the wardrobe for autumn / winter. 

As you may already know, September also includes one of my all time favourite events, Bloggers London Fashion Week! So when I was asked by the lovely Danielle if I wanted to attend a Pre Party meal at Balans Soho Society the evening before the event I jumped at the opportunity... 
I knew this would be the perfect time to sit down and really get to know some new bloggers and what better way than in a lovely restaurant along High Street Kensington. I have to admit I felt slightly nervous before attending, it's a strange concept when you think about it, technically I was going for dinner somewhere completely new and with people I'd never met before.

However, when I arrived to a table of smiling faces, it reminded me of why I love being part of the blogging community so much... everyone is always so welcoming and supportive of one another, even when you've only just met for the first time. We started off with drinks, which was a tough decision from such a tempting list of cocktails, mocktails and wines. With a table of indecisive ladies we called upon our lovely waiter, David J, to ask what he recommended - therefore resulting in 3 of us choosing the Porn Star Martini.   

I had to get a picture of Danielle's drink too, a strawberry mocktail which looked very tasty! Deciding on a main course was just as difficult as deciding on a drink. Stuck between the Red Curry, Sausage and Mash or Roast Beef ( A Sunday Special), David again kindly took his time to recommend each of us of the best dish. In the end I decided on the roast beef, especially as it was Sunday and quite possibly one of my favourite meals. Honestly, my meal was perfection, everything was so full of flavour.  

Pudding is definitely my favourite thing, I have such a sweet tooth. Again there was so much choice but I decided on another favourite of mine, banoffee pie, and oh my this was the biggest piece I think i've ever had! It was delicious, complete with a piece of white chocolate on the top, toffee sauce and strawberries.. truly amazing! 

Thinking over this meal again is literally making my mouth water, I will definitely be going back again very soon, hopefully to reunite with the lovely ladies I met that evening! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, an evening filled with fabulous food and brilliant blogger company.

Be sure to visit to see the full menu. 


I have also included below the links to all the other ladies blogs so you can also read their thoughts on the evening...

I would just like to finish this post by saying a huge thank you to 'Balans Soho Society'(especially our waiter David J) for giving us such a fabulous experience and also to Danielle who works so hard to make these exciting events happen. 

Lots of Love
