Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: Blogger Meet Up (Part 1) and a Recap

Blogger Meet Up (Part 1) and a Recap

4:40 PM

What an eventful weekend this has been.  I hosted my first ever blogger meet up and I had a blast.  At first I was hesitant because I wasn't sure how many people would make it or if they would even be interested and I thought about hosting a meet up a few months ago.  I finally worked up the guts to find some bloggers back in the beginning of October.  To my surprise I had a very amazing turnout.

I met with 6 amazing bloggers (and my friend who took pictures, I will have those in the next few days) all of which were so positive, humble, beautiful, and different.  We meet at Le Pain Quotidien in SoHo at the 100 Grand Street Location.  Ok, first of all their food is amazing and it tastes so fresh.  The ambiance of the cafe was superb.  Such a rustic, yet classy place to eat and just have a great time.  Let's move on to some pictures shall we?


That middle spread, Blondie, is delicious.  It is heaven in my mouth!


Coolest Hot Chocolate ever!





All of the girls!


Alexandra The Personality is what I like to call her.  This girl is so much fun and she owns her own cosmetics line.  


Sharon is my fellow puggle lover.  She is also a Jersey Shore resident so we will definitely be taking a trip to the beach next summer!


Sara is a writer and is currently going to Grad School.  Watch out for her, she's totally going to be the next up and coming author.  Sara, whenever that happens I want an autographed copy!


This is my friend/photographer/coworker.  We work together at my full time job but this girl has major talent.  I couldn't have made this blog possible without the help of her and my other photographers and family.  She truly has been an awesome support and I am so glad she was able to come with me!


Christie another fellow fur mama and Jersey girl.  She is just so kind and fun.  I met her at Lucky FABB and I am so glad we kept in contact!


Mel and Angelis are two amazing women.  Mel works for my favorite designer (Ralph Lauren, I'm still very jealous) and Angelis has been in Pageants (hence the perfect hair, makeup, and smile) AND she owns her own accessories line!

So I'm sure you're wondering what these lovely ladies received from the host yesterday.


Ralph Lauren soap.

  

Ralph Lauren tops.  I feel like I'm a walking advertisement for Ralph Lauren, I can't help it though I just love their style too much!


Angelis brought us a little something from her accessories line.



I had such an amazing time with these girls.  I can't wait until next time!  Also, stay tuned for pictures this week from my photographer from this meetup.

Then last night I went out for my friends birthday.  Here's my outfit.


Jacket:  Sam Edelman {Saks, old}
Top:  Guess {here, but old}
Skirt:  Kenar {Marshalls}
Clutch:  {Marshalls}
Necklace:  Forever 21 {here}
