SoCal Blogger Meet & Greet: Fall 2016

This blog post is one I am very excited to share with you.  I didn't want to rush it and maybe even give you some anticipation leading up to finally giving you an inside look into this fun event.

I have to say not in a million years did I ever imagine being now in a place where I officially consider myself a blogger, but now having been doing it for quite some time and still enjoying every minute regardless of the outcome, has been amazing and I love it, and even more so now, knowing that I am not alone.

Being an oc girl and a blogger well sometimes it may seem like this blogosphere is small, but its honestly just endless.

Thank god for friends that help you push the envelope and just enough to open yourself to unimaginable opportunities.  Alongside my amazing friend and also a fabulous lifestyle blogger, Taylor, this new journey is just starting.

I'll let most of the pictures do the talking.

We all got to mingle as everyone arrived then on we went for a peak @softgoods, Ebony's shop was so warm and inviting, I think almost everyone left with a little something.  

As the evening progressed, so did the scenery of our gathering, it was also warm, cozy and intimate.

Got to know each other as we sat along with a little wine, delicious food and nibbles.  We even had some great conversations, including Katie from @halfway_wholeistic as our special guest speaker, who had a lot of great tips and shared her personal outlook and perspective of social media and blogging, it honestly couldn't have been more perfect.

We're excited for everyone that joined us and also how everything came together so well, with a lot of love and special thought truly this event could not have been possible without Taylor, Katie, Ebony and the collaborations of our sponsors.  

We're already planning our next blogger meetup so if you're in Southern California and just a drive away, definitely consider joining us.

DIY Multi-purpose Command Center & Giveaway

So this little space came together quite quickly, but with School back in session I almost forgot to share it with you guys!

This space though started getting busy before I even had all the pieces of the puzzle put in place.

We desperately needed a drop zone for mail, keys, sunglasses, etc.  This section got moved around quite a bit, because our living room is fairly narrow therefore its hard to accommodate a lot of furniture but we're making it work somehow.  Good thing this space worked out and the husband is happy that I finally came to final decision and that there's a final destination for it.

Unfortunately since completing this space and school in session a few things were considered and this space won't be staying this way for much longer, due to us having to move a few things around before the holidays but I think I'll like it much better in its future location, for now this area works for just about anything as you come in or go out the door.

By the way if you follow me on Instagram or don't then you'll definitely want to because I've teamed up with an AMAZING group of ladies for this giveaway!

I have finally reached 1,000 followers on Instagram and a giveaway seemed like the most festive way to celebrate especially with October just around the corner all these prizes are sure to make your home that much cozier for the Fall.

One lucky winner will WIN everything shown below.
