Tuesday Night, I was incredibly lucky enough to attend Team Gleam & Daily Mix TV's Halloween party in Penthouse, Leciester Square - Central London. I think my jaw hit the floor before I squealed with excitement at receiving the invite.
You see, I've always wanted an excuse or a good reason to dress up like a Disney Princess, and this party was that reason. I got to work on planning my Elsa costume right away and made sure to RSVP in a heartbeat! I'd also invited the beautiful April to come with me and after my slight Taxi delay, I picked her up and we headed to the venue.
This party was like no other i'd ever been to! Everywhere you looked, there was a famous YouTuber, dressed in an incredible costume. Now, after about 3 hours of being scared to talk to anyone and moving from empty space to empty space... and some all important encouragement from the handful of people I knew in attendance... I eventually plucked up the courage to try and speak to people. It's funny how you can spend all week planning the perfect costume, logistics and everything else that comes with attending a costume party... but the one thing I forget to arrange was my confidence. After a few hours of feeling rubbish, with my confidence hitting rock bottom and some wonderful words of encouragement from Lianne Lim Walker (who by the way is an absolute sweetheart!) I finally got to say hi to Zoella and had a lovely little chat, hung out with Gabby and chatted with Niomi and Marcus,
I had fun catching up with the lovely Scarphelia whom I hadn't seen for a while and also Victoria who i'd previously met at a Primark Event and looked amazing in her make up and black milk costume.
There were so many people that I wanted to speak to and get to know, but I just couldn't shake off my confidence issues and just say hello to people, or strike up a conversation. I've written so many times about how difficult I find it to make friends and meet new people and this night was sadly no different. But, small steps right? That's what we're aiming for... and who knows, at next years party, I might be the loudest person in the room...
Thanks so much to Katie, Gleam, Daily Mix for the invite, and of Course Asda for sponsoring the party and hopefully see you at the next!
