Dressing up as Bond girls for a casino night in Leeds

little black dresses
Last week, Kristina and I got to dress up in proper James Bond style in our little black dresses and red lips, for a casino event at White Cloth Gallery in Leeds.

The event was organised by bgo casino, and at arrival we were greeted with £50 worth of pretend money, and a few poker chips which we could swap for drinks at the bar. Very clever!

I've never been to Las Vegas, but this event had everything I imagine they have over there, but on a smaller scale - stylish girls (all us Leeds bloggers, of course ;) ), free alcohol, great music, competitions, and of course a lot of gambling in the form of Roulette and Black Jack.

casino nails
For this special occasion I had painted my nails in a casino themed nail art. This was extremely popular and appreciated by everyone, and lots of bloggers and even the organisers came up to me and wanted to photograph them. My casino nails even won me a prize for best Instagram of the evening using the #bgomeetup hashtag. 
AND... my claws also got featured over on bgo's blog.

casino night
We had a great night, and after having a professional croupier teaching us how to play Black Jack properly, we spent a couple of hours trying to win some more chips. I'm clueless about Roulette so I stayed away from that table, but at the end of the night I had doubled my pretend money and ended up at £100 - which won me another prize for being the blogger with the third most chips.

The biggest winner was Jess from Glitterbat. It was great seeing her again after the Paul Mitchell blogger event the week before. 

Thanks to bgo and Joe Blogs blogger network for a fun and unusual blogger event! It was great getting the opportunity to dress up like a Bond girl.
