My, my that is a lot of P’s! Myself and Catherine headed to Penguin Headquarters in Central London for a wonderful Vintage themed Book Party. There was an interview with the author that was held by Jo Elvin the editor of Glamour Magazine. I managed to get a couple of pictures (not many – sorry!) and as myself and Catherine walked over the river on the way home there are so pictures of that too.
The mini burgers not only looked awesome they were absolutely delicious! There was a pop up hair and make up stand – with my hair in corn rows I was unable to get my hair done and as I wasn’t feeling particularly adventurous I didn’t partake in a makeover either. However some of the guests that did really did look stunning. There were some stalls selling some fabulous vintage items such as clothes and accessories. One in particular is Red Bird Makes which had some delightful brooches and other vintage like jewellery on sale. After looking through her Etsy I really could damage my bank balance. Check it out as it is truly AWESOME!
Maya and Jo had an intense conversation over the course of about 30 – 40 minutes and I even managed to ask a question. This young girl is a true inspiration – at 15 years old with her first book published and many other projects ready and waiting she is something of an icon for those her age. As I am currently reading another book this one has been added to the top of the pile.
Maya was lovely enough to sign two extra copies of her book for me to giveaway right here on the blog so keep your eyes peeled for the giveaway – it will not only be for the book but the goody bags that came with it – check out the contents below.
The day was finally over and we headed back home via this wonderful view.
With a massive THANK YOU to Penguin and a cheery HELLO to the lovely ladies I met whilst there – I had a fantastic time and look forward to future events.
