My blogger meet up list is becoming extensive and I am LOVING it. This is what I love about the blogosphere – the opportunity to meet up with people you’d probably never meet in your day-to-day life.
A couple of weeks ago, I got to meet up with Amy and it was definitely a long time coming. She messaged me to say that she’d be in London and I just knew we HAD to meet up. Gotta take every opportunity you can, especially as she lives all the way in Leeds!
I decided that we should go to Carluccio’s, as you can’t go wrong with some good ol’ Italian. We met outside this massive statue of a man and woman kissing in London’s St. Pancras International. I don’t get as nervous when meeting new people, anymore, but there’s still a moment of, “Omg, dude. What if they’re not real and I’m just being catfished” (Which I’m sure I’ve mentioned before in other blog posts about meeting other bloggers, haha). Thankfully, I wasn’t being catfished and was greeted with a massive hug from Amy!
I also got to meet her boyfriend as well, who was really cool and super funny.
We basically spoke about everything from what’s it like living in Leeds (apparently there’s not much to do there, haha) to blogging to dating – it was so much fun. Also, yes, the food was amazing. I love Carlucci’s – I ordered the garlic focaccia with provolone cheese and the beef ragu linguine.
Amy nearly gave me a heart attack when she told me she likes her steak well done, though. ?
Because there’s needs to be evidence that I’m real and she’s real and that together we’re both real, we HAD to take some photos in front of the massive statue. I have no idea what was going on but we just found everything so funny – doing funny poses and all sorts. Amy’s bf did manage to get some photos of us that weren’t us moving around like mad men, though!
Afterwards, we wandered around the station and stumbled across a mini Hamleys where they were playing some old skool *NSYNC. We literally just walked around still chatting before ending up out side Kings Cross station and trying to have an impromptu photo shoot outside Pret A Manger – except it smelt so bad that we had to evacuate immediately.
The night ended with us just chilling and talking about some fucking hilarious things – shout out to Cedric ?
SO GLAD I FINALLY GOT TO MEET YOU, AMY! You’re amazing, sweet and hella funny IRL and you definitely need to come back to London, soon ?
If you haven’t already, you should definitely check out Amy’s post about our meetup here.
PS. Here’s a bonus video of me dancing along to ‘Bye Bye Bye’.
