Motel Bloggers Party

12 Nov

So I was lucky enough to attend the Motel Bloggers Party on Thursday evening. I arrived bang on 6pm eager to go and the room filled up quickly!

Unfortunately I left my camera at home so I’m including some other bloggers photos and providing the link to their blogs underneath:

There was all sorts of lovely things including strawberry mojitos, candy floss and caramel popcorn, yum!

And my favourite piece was the black crackle jean:

It was such a fabulous night and I’d like to say thank you to Motel for letting me be a part of it.

There were so many bloggers in attendance that I didn’t get a chance to say hello to everyone, please do say hello on here or Twitter (@LDNshopaholic) if you were there and I missed you.

Motel Rocks My World!

17 May

So, you’ve got a massive night out planned…. to celebrate the end of exams / your best friend’s birthday / a hen do. But alas, amongst all your clothes, you have NOTHING to wear. The right dress makes you feel a certain way… gives you confidence, makes you stand out, but doesn’t wear you. After four years at university (that’s a minimum of 3 nights out a week), and now a regular London clubber, I decided to share my secret…. Motel! My go-to brand for finding the perfect going out dress.

They made an impact with their stripey (with a hint of floral) bodycon numbers (trust me, you know the one I’m talking about), and have since created a variety of prints which are unique yet wearable.  The dresses fit in all the right places, reveal just enough flesh and are TOTALLY AFFORDABLE! Too good to be true?! Indeed… I don’t know how they do it!

A couple of my favourite Motel dresses at the moment are:

           

The Katy in Tropical Hawaii (£32) which is very feminine and would stand out in a bar whether it’s in London…. or Ibiza! And as I like their bolder prints, I couldn’t resist the ‘out there’ Cosmic print shown here on the Blake dress (also £32). The sheer excitement of wearing the universe is slightly overwhelming!

If you’re not a fan of the Bodycon dress, then fear not, Motel have a huuuge range of playsuits, fit and flare dresses, as well as trousers, tops and knits. My favourite playsuit is the Grace in Wallflower (£48) which could be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I also LOVE the fabulous Jordan Jean in Black and White Stripe (£52), perfect for my inner rock chick…*sigh*.

   

If you’re eyeing up these lush lovelies and thinking ‘I want a piece of that!’. Well… the lovely people at Motel are running a competition, along with the amazingly talented Wah Nails, to win an item of clothing of YOUR choice!

Here’s how to win:

So, for example going clockwise from the beginning, the first three are: Triangle, Tropical Hawaii and Wallflower, you could also mention the designs which feature the prints e.g the Jordan Jean and Gypsy Playsuit in Pretty Rose. To enter click on the image above and post the names of the designs on their wall.

You can also enter to win £200 on their website, and 10 runners up will receive Models Own Goody Bags!

Good Luck!
