Rock On Ruby Clothes Swap!

Rock On Ruby Clothes Swap

It's always kind of crazy when you host something, even if it's a birthday party or meal at your house... I always get this kind of panicky paranoia - is everyone having a good time? Are there enough party rings? Is the music too loud? Too quiet? Then there's the mad rush to get all the decorations up before the first blogger arrives fashionably early... HOWEVER. I have to say, organising a Clothes Swap for Rock On Ruby last weekend was a blast! 

This is the second event I have organised now (the first being our Rockin' Christmas Party in December) and whilst the last event was good fun, we had a LOT to organise. This meet up was so much more chilled out, and it seemed to get a great response from the girls who attended... 

The aim of the day was to get the bloggers mingling, introduced to new blogs and of course, to have a good old clear out so we could swap clothes. And it went brilliantly!

There were SO many gorgeous things up for grabs... A lot of things were new and still had tags on! From Stila lipglosses and Ciate nail varnish to Brogues in boxes and floral Zara shirts. It was every girls dream!

Of course, no blogger event would be complete without some delish cakes and treats..

Lauren, Steph and Melissa get to work tagging up their items and cashing in their blogger vouchers!

Each girl tagged up the items that they brought to the swap with a brown label. They had to write on the tag who the item was from (blog name) and the reason for swapping it... It was a fab way to discover new blogs and to meet the previous owner of the item!



Hat Pals!!


Swapping is thirsty work... Luckily the guys at Font Bar where we held the swap came up with these Kiss From Ruby cocktails, which tasted delicious!


As you can see the rail was FULL. There were so many items up for "swaps"! Any items that were left over at the end were donated to charity!



SPEECH TIME! Cringe! I totally hadn't prepared anything to say, but we had amazing raffle prizes to give out and someone had to do the talking...

Finally, we had a basket of treats for each blogger to take home with them... What more could you want?!

The event had SUCH a fab response! We'll definitely be looking into doing another one, maybe a Summer Swap?! If you'd like to attend a ROR event, leave a comment below with a link to your blog / email address!
