This amazing event started as a small blogger meet up (can you believe it haha.) I had just created this community called the SoCal Blogger Babes. Being new to California and a new mom, I felt like I needed to make some friends. Not just any friends though…blogger friends!!! If you’re a blogger, you know how much more fun it is to blog with other bloggers (if you don’t you need to find out!!) I wanted a fun way for us to meet for the first time and I also wanted to give every girl a fun gift bag with fun blogger stuff inside! Once word got out and I really started reaching out to people about our event, it blew up!
Saranghae was generous enough to sponsor our event and they even had their marketing director come out from Toronto! Their skin care line is to die for and their sheet masks are 10X better than any other I’ve used before. I just started using this 5-step skin care line a couple of weeks ago and a dedicated blog post with my results is soon to follow! ❤
We had the talented Gilmore Studios come out to our event to snap some pictures! I’ve been obsessed with their photography since I first saw it in my gyno’s office hahaha. I first went to them for newborn pictures of Jackson! We have gone to their studio four times already since he’s been born. I guess you could say we are obsessed!
I was seriously ecstatic to serve these cupcakes from Sweet September Cupcakes. They are even tastier than they look. As a finalist on Season 4 of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, you know they are over-the-top DELICIOUS!! This run from home, family business is seriously the cutest. You can read more about Sweet September Cupcakes here!
Many of the girls outfits were from Viena Valentina. A family owned and operated online boutique that is local here in Southern California! The most adorable sister’s aka owner’s of the boutique came out and setup a rack with some of the most perfect clothes for fall. The girls had an amazing opportunity to shop at a discounted rate and find an outfit for their next blog post! 😉
We had the MOST adorable center pieces from The Wandering Desert. Pumpkin succulents anyone?! Literally two of my most favorite things haha! Tyler and I are succulent obsessed!! Rene does such an amazing job on her live succulent arrangements. P.S – she doesn’t just do pumpkins!! Check out her Insta for more of her awesome work!
We had the most adorable custom gift bags from Gigraffe Design Studio. She nailed our logo perfectly and all the girls loved them! I use mine as my official blogger bag now haha. Anytime I go for a shoot I pack this bag up with everything I need! If you need ANYTHING custom made with your logo this is your place! 🙂
