ROSWEGLYN- What's Going On?!


With just a little a week over to go until our big meet & greet AKA ROSWEGLYN, we thought we had best update you all as to what's actually happening on the day. If you don't already know, Youtubers Rose & Rosie (ROS), Us (WEG) and Kaelyn and Lucy (LYN) are coming together to meet a bunch of our followers. We're all super excited to meet the 600 people going and we've spent endless messages and many hours planning the event!

For more information as to what the event is all about, have a read of Rosie's post.

For those attending and what the nitty gritty:

Doors are scheduled to open at 1.00pm. Seats will be allocated on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis. So if you want to sit at the front – start queuing early! ;)

When: 1-5pm on Saturday 26th April, 2014.

Where: The Mermaid Theatre, Puddle Dock, Blackfriars, Greater London, EC4V 3DB


Bags will be checked on the door so please don't bring anything dangerous or illegal, as it will be confiscated and you may not be allowed in. And we all know how much you value your harpoon guns, so we don't want them being taken away.

1:00pm:  DOORS OPEN
1:30pm:  Short Q & A, hosted by the wonderful Bella Qvist from DIVA magazine! 
2:00pm-5:00pm:  Meet #ROSWEGLYN

IMPORTANT: Upon entering the theatre, you will be handed a wristband with a specific colour by a steward. Wristbands will be handed out in order of arrivals, so if you're coming as a group and want to meet us together, make sure you're all present before entering the theatre!

Each colour will designate the order for meet and greet. Because there are so many of you, we will assign time frames in which each colour wristband comes to meet us. i.e. 'Red wristbands - 2.30-3pm.' (That's just an example). Please don't rush or push when you are waiting - we'll get to meet all of you, so don't worry about being first in line! 

PLEASE NOTE that because we will be meeting every single one of you, we won't have endless amounts of time with each person. We have to keep things short in order to ensure we get to meet ALL of you, so if you have a lot of things you want to say to us, feel free to write it down in letter form etc and we can get back to you, personally, afterwards! 

Whilst you are waiting for your time slot, there will be lots of other things for you to do! We have a bar, a photobooth where you'll be able to take photos with all your friends and video messages, plus lots of organisations attending such as Ditch the Label, DIVA, Coppafeel and many more. There will also be merchandise stands for all three couples, plus a secret #ROSWEGLYN merch stand!


Useful journey planner:

If you have an iPhone, check out this free app for getting your way around the tube stations:

The nearest tube station to the theatre is London Blackfriars!  The Theatre is only a two minute walk from this station.  Please utilize Google Maps for exact directions.
(You can thank Kaelyn for that info!)

We will also be selling our grey I <3 Wegan leopard print t-shirts (for £15). We will have a limited amount & something extra will make them extra limited, but you'll have to wait & see! We will also have wristbands too! The other girls are selling some awesome merch too, as well as a joint poster- YAY! We will scribble all over it for you. If you want!

There will also be a production company there filming the event, as well as DIVA (lesbian magazine) filming and taking photos. If you do't want to be on camera, please move away from those with cameras! 

Consider yourself a WEGANER or a ROSWEGLYN fan?

Back To Long Distance!

Yes, Wegan are separated for the next week and back to long distance. We are physically apart for 8 days because Whitney has gone back to USA to visit family. This is the first time that we have had a night apart for nearly two years. She moved to join me in the UK in June 2012, and we have not had a single night not sleeping side by side! 

Long distance is a funny thing to go through. It's made us never, ever want to be apart from each other. Ever. Again. Yet when you conquer long distance, it means you're in long distance with someone else. In this case Whitney is in a LDR with her mum and family. I completely understand the reasoning for her going 'home' to the South to see everyone and to touch base with her culture. 

I have ever slept in my bed, or my house, by myself. This will be a very strange week for me! I'm used to waking up next to her, making two coffees, two smoothies & dropping her off to work everyday. No doubt I'll go to her work out of habit! 

Kisses has been the most perfect kitten and has been keepimg me company. She even curled up in my lap last night (she never does that) and the during the night she snuggled up in my arms right next to me. Either she knows I'm sad or she loves having her mummy all to herself!! Haha.

I'm going to spend the week catching up on TV programmes we don't want together, blogging (hello) and editing videos. Plus seeing family & friends! 

Slight height difference with Matt (AKA our Civil Partnership photographer).

Yesterday I just hung out in my sisters shop. Beth is leaving for Brazil in a weeks time, she will be gone for 2 months!! Will be weird to not have my little sister near, but it's an experience she deserves to have!

Today I went to Go Go's restaurant with my parents, we managed to get a seat upstairs and outside in the sun. I nearly cried from excitement when I saw that they have importted KONA BREWING BEER FROM HAWAII!!! You guyssss you don't know what this means to me (lol ok maybe you do). That made my day!! I will look forward to sharing a Kona beer with the wife when she returns.

Enjoy the South baby! But not too much as your wifey & kitten are eagerly awaiting your return!

If you want to see me cry like a baby, watch our goodbye video.. I swear it felt worse saying goodbye to life as we know it now together than it did to say goodbye for 3 months! Oh long distance, what did you do to us?!

Wegan Go To Attitude Mag's Party!

We recently attended a big bash that Attitude Magazine were hosting on 29th March 2014, to celebrate gay marriage becoming legal in UK, their 'Love & Marriage' special edition mag (which we're in) and Attitude's 20th anniversary! Woo!! The event was held at the beautiful Grosvenor House in London, sponsored by the Marriott and Smirnoff. It was the most awesome, random and fun night. I was so proud to have Whitney by my side as my wife. Even though we were at a gay event- everyone was still surprised when they realised we were a couple!

We stayed at Hotel Indigo (Paddington) and loved the hotel, they even had a rainbow carpet! They must have known we were coming ;)

The theme of the event was birthday glamour glitz... so BAM that's what we went for! 

As the event was sponsored by Smirnoff it was an open bar with awesome cocktails, just what Wegan like to see!

The 'Love & Marriage' mag that we're in!

We met Brian Paddick, he is the most senior open gay police officer, now working in House of Lords. I read his book for my Criminology degree, so I was rather excited to spot him there. He was lovely, as was his husband! They make a great couple. 

We bumped into my friend Nik Thakkar (who was part of the first night we ever met). I hadn't seen him in years so it was great to see his face again!

We managed to coerce the Christian for a photo with us (the journalist who interviewed us for the mag) who insisted he doesn't like photos, but hey it turned out a pretty good one even if we do say so ourselves!

We befriended the only other open lesbian at the event- Lucy Spraggan (from X factor). She is a really nice girl and we had a great time getting to know her. 

Ana Matronic (Scissor Sisters) also attended the event and introduced Boy George on stage to DJ!

Here's something you may not know about me, I was a huge Will Young fan! Rooted for him on Pop Idol and I've been to see him quite a few times in concert, mainly with the bestie Karen. It was very surreal and funny to meet him. He was a lovely guy & I managed to not fan girl! (Kinda)

Shortly after meeting Will Young, I MAY have fallen down the stairs... Whitney found it the funniest thing she had EVER seen! Luckily as I jumped to my feet, a man had very nicely picked up all the stuff that fell out of my bag. I thought I had gotten away with not many people seeing it, but a couple of guys approached me towards the event of the event & apologised that they found it so funny. They even reacted it for me, I was dying off laughter (& embarrassment) but good to know I was very graceful and lady like as jumping back up to my feet like nothing had happened. Oh it had to happen to me didn't it!!

The awesome Jodie Harsh was also at the party and did an awesome DJ set. DAMN her makeup is flawless!!

We had a lovely chat with Gogglebox Chris and his Partner Tony (super lovely). He also stole that gold vodka LOL!

Before we knew it, the party was sadly over. We hopped in a taxi with Lucy Spraggan to go to Heaven but unfortubately she only had VIP for +1 guest and we were in too much pain in our heels to wait in the long queue. So we headed back to our hotel.. and proceeded to have Buger King!! HAHA. Classy end there Wegan!

Needless to say it was an awesome night & here's an insight into the day leading up to and after the party! Thanks for a great night Attitude! Here's to LOVE!

Let's do it again??

Watch our vlog from the day!
