On Saturday I went for a picnic with the Awesome Women of Twitter (and some awesome guys too). I discovered AWOT just before I moved to London and excitedly attended my first meetup the night before I moved into my flat. I followed so many new and wonderful people who I must say it’s been quite difficult keeping track of who was who!
The second event they’ve had since I moved was the picnic and it was a truly lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon. We met up at Regents Park tube then found a lovely spot in the park, we had all taken a little something along which of course meant that there was way more food than any of us could possibly have eaten!
Lots of the girls love to bake and cook but I cheated with bought cocktail sausages and mini kievs! I was kind of glad to add a bit of savoury to the overload of sweet stuff. The gorgeous Oreo and cream cheese truffles were made by the gorgeous @laurenbravo and the stunning cakes by the equally lovely @SolisCupCakes. The sun was shining and things did start to melt but that just added to the challenge of getting things eaten as quick as we could! Unfortunately I’ve had a mouth sore for the past ten days which has made eating painful and impossible to do gracefully so I didn’t dare try as much as I would have liked to but the conversation more than made up for my rumbling tummy.
Hopefully there will be another AWOT meet up soon! If you’re a female in London why not give it a look and pop along? They’re free to attend!
