A few weeks ago, I had the chance to visit London and spent two nights in town: on my first night I visited Opso in Marylebone district while on the second one I attended the Cosmopolitan UK Blog Awards in Marylebone One. It was a 3-days long getaway full of blogging activity, hotel treats and pampering and of course, endless strolls around the festive London.
That was exactly what we did with the Cosmo girls: We had fun - the greek way!

The Christmas festivities in Marylebone happened to begin the exact same night we had planned our night-out. Andreas offered us the opportunity to taste Opso's Christmas Menu before anyone else did. We enjoyed some of the most delicious, festive delicacies, accompanied with amazing Christmas cocktails.
A 10-dishes Greek Tasting Menu was prepared for us, featuring traditional greek food with a modern "twist". 6 out of 10 of my fellow nominees were there: Katy, Tink Jayne, Charli, Lizzy, Elle and my dearest friend Alexia, blogger on Smells Like Fashion (who wasn't technically a nominee but, who cares, she was there for a social food situation!).

It was the perfect opportunity to get to know my fellow nominees-bloggers a few hours before heading at the awards. This way, our "big night" was another chance for an awesome evening together. We shared a meal, toasted, took photos of the dishes, discussed a lot about traveling, socialized even more and promised to get together again - this time in Greece.
A big 'thank you' to Andreas and the whole team at Opso for the perfect Christmas welcome in London!
See you soon ladies!
