I had a real Essex girl day last week - I spent the day shopping at Lakeside with my mum before making my way into London to meet the girls, get on the party bus and drive into Essex for a night at Bar Blanco. Raleigh is a part of Essex that I haven't ever visited before but as soon as I got into the club it felt like home, it was just like the my end of Essex clubs, white sofas, sparkling wine and diamonté gems everywhere.
We sat down and popped open the first of many, many bottles of JC Le Roux - a bright pink bubbly wine, very Essex and with its very low percentage it took me at least 3 glasses before I started feeling a little tipsy, and that is saying a lot for me considering last week it was half a cocktail haha. Its very sweet and fruity and far too easy to drink! After the wine, the snacks arrived and we got stuffing our faces, that's when Lauren also arrived! haha she spent a while outside with the papz which gave us all a chance to swallow our food and straighten ourselves out!
We each got a little bit of time to ask Lauren some questions. I knew she lived very local to me but I was quite shocked to find out that she basically lives at the end of the road where I used to live, crazy! One question that I was burning to ask her was do the TOWIE girls really wear heels all day every day like we see in the show?! The answer is no - Lauren likes to lounge around in trainers or smaller more manageable heels, normally from Zara. She is obviously a big fan of Zara - she arrived in the new very popular eye print dress - looking lovely! She also told us the New Look was one of her favourite places for big jewellery!
After a little bit of questioning, we topped up our glasses and got comfy in our V.I.P booth before jumping in a cab home!
Thanks Team JC Le Roux for a fun night and for introducing me of one of my new favourite drinks!
At the moment, it can be bought from Morrisons for £7.49 a bottle!
As for my outfit, It was put together last minute when I realised that the invite said #PinkParty. I am loving theses kind of smart origami shorts/skorts that are everywhere at the moment. The crepe style material is really comfy and keeps me cool! I paired it with a black crop and my big clumpy boots.
Crop - ASOS
