My Blind Date With Three Bloggers

After blogging for a few months, I've noticed that there's such a huge blogging community in the major cities like Boston and New York.  Well, howcome we don't have one here in Connecticut?!  Finally, after a few tweeting amongst a few bloggers, we set a date to meet up this past weekend.
First and foremost, I love making things for people.  I thought what perfect way to intro myself with a blogger goodie bag!  I was thinking like a swag bag like at those fancy parties.  Of course I had to personalize it with each blog's header picture.  I added a few cutesy things in it as well.  I had a lot of fun with this project.
little pastry erasers, notebooks, cupcake sticky notepad, and my dela chicly owl ornaments from my etsy shop
tumbler cozies with customized blog header for each fashionable lady along with a tumbler perfect for a hot or cold drink

So the day came for the brunch with the ladies.  I was excited and nervous at the same time.  It was like three blind dates at once!! All three ladies have already met each other from a previous meet up, and I was the newbie blogger.  

It was a wonderful brunch with the ladies filled with rainbows, eggs benedicts, french toast, and of course mimosas!  We chatted about fashion, shopping, food, and of course blogging.

In true blogger fashion, there was a photo shoot at the beach.  The February temperature outside and the wind gust made it a little difficult to take pictures.  However, you wouldn't know that by looking at the pictures of these lovely ladies!

After a fabulous day with these wonderful ladies of brunching and shopping we hope that there will be more blogger meet-ups in the future.  Next time maybe other local bloggers can join us as well.  It was definitely a great experience and everyone had an awesome time!

Check out what the ladies blogged about that day:

You guys look so fabulous! Whenever I see these posts where bloggers meet up I think they're super sweet. Those owls are beyond fabulous. I'm guessing you made them yourself? Is there a DIY tutorial? They're too adorable. Maybe you're selling them?

christine said...

Thanks so much for stopping by! I thought the same thing whenever I saw posts of blog-meetups. And now I can finally say I've been to one. Also thanks for liking my owl. SHould've posted more about them, eh? I currently don't have them in my etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/delachic) right now but did a few months ago.
