Jumping for JoY

Hooooow nice are JoY?

I'll answer that. VERY nice. They teamed up with the new Ford Ka to bring us Go Find It (hence the picture of a Ka in my sidebar!) Bascially, they invited 14 bloggers and their plus ones to the JoY clothing store near London Bridge, and set up a fun little treasure hunt for us all.

The store....
Found one!
Our aim was to find these cute miniature Ka's which were hidden around the store, and redeem them as vouchers to spend on the gorgeous clothes they had in store.

The Go Find it team welcomed us with some adorable (and tasty) cupcakes and champage, but we were all too anxious to get our hands on the cars and get shopping!

The rapidly depleting cupcake stash
Thankfully, we managed to compose ourselves, and there was no shin kicking, hair pulling or cat fighting as there were enough cars for all of us- hurrah!

Me and Emma with our little cars. SO over excited. Bad pic but shh look at the cars!
The cars were worth an extremely generous £60, so it was very hard to whittle all my bundles of clothes/accessories/jewellery down to an affordable amount. Of course I went over the £60 but I didn't mind as I loved everything there and I am very happy with what I got!

New shooooes? Keeping in with the studded theme, clearly!
New dress. The picture doesn't do it justice at all. It is lovely though, take my word for it!
For anyone that hasn't been to a JoY store, I think you should definitely have a look online. They remind me a bit of Urban Outfitters and they have really great stuff for men and women.

Also (it keeps getting better doesn't it) if you visit one of their stores on a Friday in September, you can win the chance of finding one of the cars for yourself and getting vouchers to spend in store! Have a look on the Go Find it site for a version of that which will probably make more sense!

Also, the event was being filmed *cringe* so they may just be some footage of us scurrying round tearing the shop apart! I will put it up if it isn't too incriminating haha :)
