My day to day job is actually in social media, and last week I got to co-host a blogger party in Rome for the company I work for, online English school EF Englishtown. To celebrate the launch of our new Android app, we invited Italy’s leading fashion and lifestyle bloggers to come and pick their favourite version of English – British vs American.
After three days of running around in the sweltering Roman heat, my colleague Daniela and I were finally ready to welcome our guests. Needless to say I went for British English and chose a psychedelic 60s outfit, hello Swinging London, while Daniela went for a very American cowgirl look.
Hosted at the amazing New York-style loft gallery Lost & Found, we’d put together a feast of hot dogs and fish’n'chips, two giant flag cakes and a bar menu featuring classics such as vodka sour and gin and tonic.
Much to our relief the bloggers came, enjoyed their customised good bags (I’ll be writing a separate post about our sponsor Gaya as I was so impressed with their products) and danced the night away to the fab DJ duo who – much to my delight – put on a very 50s and 60s song list. Ace night!
