When Fifi met Sally #2: London leaves & forever friends

I did it! I finally got to meet the woman herself on London turf. After months of back and forth emailing, tweeting, letter writing and laughing, I finally found myself literally rolling around in the last of the autumn leaves with my blogger pen pal Sally, and let me tell you, she is as much joy to be around in person as she is in emails.

We've taken our online affairs to the next level, not just by finally meeting each other in the flesh, we ain't ones to do anything by halves, me and Sal, but through the exchange of a very small, and very special gift to one another - clock the shiny bad boys across our necks. Our smiley faces say it all.

As long distance blogger pals (I say long distance, we're only an hour and a £10 train journey apart) we've exchanged forever friends necklaces to mark the start of our blogger friendship. Every time I go to put mine on in the morning, I find myself visiting Sally's blog or instagram over a morning cuppa shortly after. Sentimental jewellery is the best kind. Wouldn't you agree?

These are from Argento. They arrived so beautifully wrapped it made me have palpitations chatting to the postman. Unlike other custom made sterling silver necklaces, the intricate details of the lettering make the necklace delicate, yet really stand out. What an amazing gift idea for your favourite blogger.



Sally & I had such a festive Saturday, chilling with a cuppa tea in a pew in Union Chapel, listening to string quartets and tango orchestras before getting lost in quaint little shops that reminded me of home. I never knew London had such charm. And so many leaves.

For a while now, I've been thinking just how important it is to make digital more physical. We spend hours upon hours chatting to likeminded people across the UK and beyond, making lifelong buddies on social media - it seems a shame that we've all stopped putting pen to paper, swapping friendship bracelets like our childhood years. What's stopping you meeting up with your favourite blogger and exchanging prezzies in the post?

This is only the start of When Fifi met Sally, and we have so many more ideas, parcels, and day trips to share with our readers. Be sure to follow Sally on all social media you can. The girl is a legend :)
