Matalan Movie Club

On Saturday I went along to an amazing event held by Matalan. It was held at the highly prestigious 5 star Bvlgari Hotel in Knightsbridge. The hotel itself was very swanky and the staff were all extremely friendly and welcoming. On entering we were greeted with a lovely glass of champagne and some delicious canap├ęs. We had mini burgers, asparagus with parma ham and salmon blinis followed by the yummiest macaroons! I have never tried macaroons before and was so excited to see what all the fuss is about... now I understand! They were amazing!! 
After some chatting and mingling with the other bloggers and meeting lots of new lovely girls we were then taken to the hotels private cinema room! With a top up of champagne and a bag of popcorn, we took our seats to watch the film- A Midnight in Paris. Before the film started we had a little talk about the brand from Ruth. She told us about their plans for the future of Matalan, with hopes of bringing stores to the high street within the next year as opposed to just being in retail parks. This will make the brand more accessible as, especially for me, I don't have any Matalan stores close to me so it will be great to have a store in the capital. They are also working on making the brand more fashion-forward and seen as a brand for young, fashionable women.  
After the short talk, the film began. Not knowing what to expect from it, I was pleasantly surprised and absolutely loved the film, very different to what I was expecting. It was the perfect romantic comedy but with a deeper meaning and made me really, really want to go to Paris! As ever at these kind of events, I always have way too much fun and forget about taking photos! So here are a few rubbish quality photos that I managed to snap.
