Yesterday I headed through to Glasgow for a blogger get together organised by Kirsty in aid of International Women's Day. Not only was it lovely to meet other Scottish bloggers but it was a great chance to donate to some money to a very worthy cause. You can read more about how Oxfam are helping women across the world (and you can donate via the website too!) over on Oxfam's International Women's Day website.

The event was held in Hillhead Bookclub which was a great venue with a relaxed atmosphere and really nice decor. Will definitely be visiting again if I'm back in Glasgow any time soon! The event itself consisted of a quiz, clothes swap, manicures, raffle and bake sale (all the lovely cakes were made by Rani, yum!) and of course lots of chatting! It was so nice to catch up with some of the girls I met at the last Scottish blogger meet up in December, as well as meeting lots of new people. It's amazing how easy it is to chat to everyone, even though you've never met you feel like you already know each other! Hopefully I'll see you all again soon, I definitely think it's Edinburgh's turn for the next meet up! Feel free to add me on Twitter for a chat.

Hope everyone had a great night, and thank you to Kirsty and Rani for organising everything. Also big thanks to Lilith for rescuing me from my train trauma haha!
