A few weeks ago I attend a blogger meet up event with my sister Charlotte from Berice Baby, we arrived at the Head Office of the Joes Bloggers Network team at Greenlight based in Kings Cross.
When I was contacted about the event by the lovely James I was really looking forward to it, never been in a casino setting before so was eager to attend and meet up with other bloggers.
The night was to raise money for WWF (World Wildlife Fund) on BGO’s new slot game ‘Jungle Trouble’ - £100 shared account was available for us to gamble with and Greenlight would donate a minimum of £100 on top of any winnings we made.
The group was a mixture of beauty/lifestyle bloggers - upon entering we were all given a glass of Prosecco and £30 of fake money to play with on the Roulette and Blackjack tables. With my glass of Prosecco in hand I headed to the Roulette table handed over my fake money to the croupier in exchange for some chips and placed my bets.
Think I remember winning on my first go, and even my second and third, the conversation was flowing as well as the Prosecco. I could only manage 2 glasses, well it was a weekday.... oh and it was going to my head so asked for a bottle of bottle. How sensible am I.
The pizza arrived so we stopped to have a few slices and a chat. I then moved over to the Blackjack table played a couple of games lost then moved back to Roulette, I preferred playing on that table. I had my winning streak back but then lost it all L Sad times!
Any who had a fabulous time chatting, eating, drinking, happy snapping, gambling and raising money for charity. A brilliant night put together by the Joes Bloggers team, many thanks guys. Met some great peeps and exchanged details. Looking forward to the next one.
