Joy had teamed up with Ford KA, through their Go Find It campaign and had invited 14 bloggers and a reader each to attend the exclusive evening. I chose Harriet to go with. I'd met her once before and am a huge fan of her blog. She was absolutely lovely and great fun to be with.
I came straight from work, so there were no glamorous outfits for me, but everyone else looked great. We were let into the Bankside Joy Store at 7.30 and were drawn in by cupcakes and drinks (did we need anything else?).
We were welcomed by the lovely people from the Go Find It campaign and then were unleashed to find these adorable Miniture Silver Ford KA's. They were hidden around the store, each one giving us £60 of Joy Vouchers. Seriously, these little KA's were adorable and the best bit: we got to keep them!!! Anyway, everyone found the KA's early on and soon we were armed with £60 Vouchers and a big shop open just for us (every girl's dream).
I quickly got through my £60 and that left me time to mingle. I got a chance to speak to Claire and Nicola (I went to school with Nicola and hadn't seen her in years, so it was great catching up).
The girls behind it all, Violette and Camile, were lovely and I had a long chat with them. I also spoke to the shop assistant there. I used to work near that store and spent a lot of time in there, and the shop assistant recognised me.
I bought a skirt and a bag that was sent from heaven. I saw it from across the store and floated towards it (life went in slow motion) and grabbed it. I love that skirt. It fits so well and looked great! Everying cost me £67, so I had to spend £7 of my own, but thats not bad!
Joy are running this promotion every friday this September, in the UK. Just walk into a Joy store and find a miniture KA for your chance to win vouchers worth £10.
Anyway, here are some pictures from the event (I look tired because I'd been up since about 6am!!):
P.S. Tomorrow (sunday) is the last day to enter our giveaway.
