On Monday I was invited to #Shoetopia - a fab event hosted by intu Trafford Centre
which kicked off their week of shoe-based activities
. I went, along with some other Northern bloggers, to the 360 Champagne and Cocktail bar in the TC for an evening of shoes, including shoe cakes, a 'style psychology' presentation and shoe quiz. Take a look at my snaps from the event, and a little video interview I did below:
A short interview I did after the event - a little cringe-y but I'm including this because I know that most of you won't have a clue what I sound like, and I'm always interested to find that out about bloggers I follow! As you can see I'm hardly a natural in front of the camera - if you ever wanted a reason as to why I don't YouTube here you go!
Yummy shoe cupcakes by Zara Cakes, and Sally with the Lego Louboutins she won for scoring highest in the shoe quiz.
A style psychologist giving a presentation about what our shoes say about us. I can't say I'm entirely convinced by the science and will not be avoiding people in bars based on their footwear choices, but it was an interesting watch!
And finally, the contents of the fab goody-bag that intu Trafford Centre sent us home with - I was over the moon with these Vans as I was genuinely considering buying a pair just a few days before the event! Thank you also to The Sweet Shop, The Body Shop, John Lewis for the adorable cup and saucer, Hotel Chocolat for the yummy truffles, and Steve Madden for the luggage tag. I also took home a cupcake (or four), of course.
