The Women's Room Salon: Women of Substance

I am still feeling so energised by The Women's Room event I attended at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch last week. I love to read The Women's Room blog posts, always intelligent, insightful and often really funny.

 The first The Women's Room Salon: Women of Substance was a fantastic evening of inspiring conversation with their four carefully chosen guests: Debbi Evans (founder of new women's magazine Libertine), Angela Flanders (Independent Perfumer and longtime Columbia Road resident), Jane Shepherdson (CEO of Whistles) and Viv Groskop (writer, presenter and Comedian).

It seldom happens for bloggers and readers to talk face to face en masse but it was wonderful to watch TWR founders Amanda and Jane excitedly meeting some of their online community in person, and for these readers and fellow tweeters to mingle.

All the 35 plus ladies were persuaded into the photo booth and I was astonished to see the outcome  -  a photograph of me which I actually love, very rare -  taken by a talented young photographer Fraser Carr Miles. I love the Chardin grey coloured background and the beautiful corsage from Hattie Fox. More lovely women on The Womens Room blog including some very stylish bloggers and old friends . . . .
