SoCal Bloggers 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.  

Don't forget to subscribe and follow along here and on Instagram and Facebook!

  1. What an excellent idea and the setting was absolutely beautiful. You ladies did an awesome job. I would love to participate with something like that for South Eastern (SE) bloggers. Grand, simply grand.

    1. Thanks Clearissa, it was absolutely more fun and beautiful than we expected, you should definitely do this in your area, its totally worth the time and effort once you bond with new friends :) Best of luck!

  2. Well if that's a great reason for me to move west then I don't know what is! Ok i have to ask because I am dying this your home or her's? I NEED that sideboard in my life! Seriously, who do I need to kill to get it! Please tell me that's your patio and you know where I can get that stunning piece of craftsmanship.

    1. Hi Christine, thanks for the compliment, we're both flattered, but its neither of our homes, we held this event at the The Makery / Soft Goods in Anaheim, CA. It was a beautiful setting to say the least. Thank you :)

  3. I can't believe I wasn't able to make it to this meet up! Next time for sure. It looks like a lovely evening :)

    1. We have another one coming up in January Samantha, so you're more than welcome to join us then :)
