Last week I had a chance to meet up with other bloggers at Blogger Scene's Summer Send Off Cocktail Party hosted by Ashley In DC and Fashionably Broke. The cocktail party took place at Redline lounge in DC. Let's just say we sent the summer off right, the Sangria bar had the drinks flowing. This mix and mingle was exactly what I needed to get back in the groove of blogging and working towards a few of my blog goals. Since I got there super early, I was able to get a swag bag, that's like the key word for any event right, lol? The host had a panel of area bloggers (Tammy, Cathy, Abbey, Angelica) to give us a little insight on how to blog successfully. Don't you just love getting creative ideas from other bloggers, I know I do. One of the bloggers on the panel stated that she actually keeps a spreadsheet of all of her blog ideas and looks; such a great idea but I am sooo not there yet. What I did take away from this event is the idea of collaborating with other bloggers. The cool thing is their blog doesn't necessarily have to be your niche as long as you have something in common it can totally increase your viewership. I look forward to working with a few bloggers in the future. After all of the blog advice, was giveaways. Now when I say that host stepped it up with the gifts they totally showed out. There were gifts from Bauble Bar,Urban Chic, Blow Dry Now, Topshop & Nordstrom, Lou Lou Boutiques, Mosiac District, PopNod, STYLECABLE, Pure Barre, South Moon Under, J Macaron, Scratch DC, and Amrita Singh. I actually had a feeling that they'd call out my name and guess what, they did. I ended up winning a $25 gift card to Scratch DC, I was super excited. All in all the event was a success, I met new bloggers and connected with a few bloggers that I hadn't seen in a while. Check out the pics.
