This past Saturday I got to hang out with a bunch of awesome local bloggers that belong to the Facebook group of the same name. I joined the group a few months ago, wanting to get back into the community. I’ve been out of the loop for so long and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to jump back in, especially when it was right in my back yard!
We met for hors d’oeuvres and drinks at Nick and Johnnies in Palm Beach. The place was amazing, with an outdoor, tropical feel that made e feel like I was on vacation. Sahilly of Pretty and Pigment hosted this event, with our tables decked out with Neiman Marcus Swag Bags and straws with our group’s logo.
Katie from Martinis and Mascara was the featured speaker and we got to hear about her amazing experience as one of Allure’s Top Beauty bloggers. Her story was nothing short of inspiring and the passion I had for blogging was reignited. It’s so easy to fall into the daily grind, especially when you’ve been blogging for a long time. When someone is fired up about doing the same things you do it’s contagious! And so is her hair! If I just didn’t get highlights the other day, I would’ve dyed my hair red already!
Our Neiman Marcus goodie bags had some amazing stuff in them! The stockings are super sexy (though I have to work out a little more to fit into them!), the notepad is very handy, and the cuff is right up my alley! it tugs at my jewelry addict heart strings. In the little bag were yummy chocolates and cool sticker from 2611 Art.
And I have to talk about the food. The fried calamari was amazing! I haven’t had any in ages. Our signature Sangria drinks were delicious too!
I had such a great time. It was refreshing to be around people who not only get what you do but have just as much fun with it as you do.
Check out these lovely ladies and their blogs:
Big thank you to Sahily and the great sponsors of the event, Neiman Marcus and 2611 Art.
