Blogger Event- Ladbrokes Ladies Race Night

The race season got off to a flying start (pun intended) at the start of March and as part of the celebrations I was invited, with other North West Bloggers to a Race Night Event at Revolution, Deansgate in association with Ladbrokes.

So I drove over after work feeling less than glamorous and playing spot the blogger to ensure I was in the right place (i'm sorry, but bloggers do have a look!) Have you ever been to Revolution in Deansgate? It's massive. So I headed upstairs where the drinks were being set up (and cursed myself a bit for not figuring out the trains so I had to drive!). I was met by Carrie and Laura the organisers of the event who are just so sweet!

The night started with drinks and mingling. I got chatting to the lovely Frances (and her boyfriend, Simon who was joining us for girls night!) and Tasha and took some photos. I got major camera envy as I snapped away with I-phone compared to everyone elses fancy cameras but since this year sees us paying for our wedding and buying our house I think a camera might be low on the priorities right now! (although my pictures are particularly bad because they took forever to upload and so I didn't get round to editing them.. sorry!)


Then there was food... the frustrating thing about a blogger event is everyone has to take pictures of the food before you can eat it! I love food at revolution at the best of times but I was especially hungry and all thoughts of slimming world went out the window whilst I enjoyed pizza, bruschetta, nachos, a bit of salad and potato wedges. Yummy!

Feeling satisfied we were invited downstairs where it was set up like a googlebox living room and the races begun! I was competing against Frances, Simon, Tash, Pat, Hayley & Naomi across four races. Now that i'm a Chester girl I knew I couldn't let the racing roots down and I like to think across the races I did them proud with two wins and ending the most number of tokens.. I was feeling pretty confident for the shopping vouchers & grand national tickets.. but more on that later..

Whilst the other bloggers (a much larger group) also watched their races and placed their bets we played a quiz of rapper or race horse - I still don't know the answers actually! and got to knows some more bloggers.. One of my favourite things about blogging is getting to know so many different bloggers and their niches. I urge you to check the links above and have a read!

Finally, it was nearly home time and the winners were announced... I was fourth!!!!! and only slightly bitter about it *grumble grumble* so no prizes for me but I did get a lovely goody bag with the prettiest little bracelet and finally it was time to say goodbye and embark on the drive home!

Thank you to Carrie and the whole team for a fabulous event and a huge thanks to the lovely bloggers I got to meet! I can't wait to meet you all again.
