If you follow me on Instagram, chances are you saw me bombarding your feed with pictures of our first Bloggers Giving Back event this weekend. I'm just going to say it now: I'm not sorry.
Blogger Brunch was SO FUN!
I figured the whole world should know it.
Or at least those who follow me anyway.
We've been planning this event for quite some time now, and it was just so exciting to finally see it come to life! A group of fabulous bloggers getting together to support some fabulous charities, is there anything better?? The answer is no.
Before I get into all the cuteness that was this event, I wanted share a little about the charities that we worked with for Blogger Brunch. Working Wardrobes empowers men and women to overcome difficult challenges while preparing them to enter the workforce. They not only provide career training and job placement services, they also equip those in their program with work appropriate clothing for interviews. The Princess Project provides free prom dresses to girls in high schools who cannot otherwise afford them. Every blogger who attended brought a bag of clothing to contribute to these charities, and together we were able to collect a ton of great pieces that will be put to good use by those who need it most! Thank you so much to all of you for making such a huge difference in our community!
Blogger 101: Before you eat ANYTHING, make sure you photograph it.
Want to make the scrub we made at the brunch? Here are the steps:
Step 1: Add 1/2 cup of coconut oil to a jar
Step 2: Add a small handful of flower petals
Step 3: Add 1 cup of brown sugar
Step 4: Top with 3-4 drops of almond oil.
Now we can all smell delicious together!
I apologize for this picture being blurry, I think our photographer was really nervous to be around so many great bloggers! :)
Blogging has taken me to a place in my life that I never in a million years would have imagined or planned for myself. I absolutely love the feeling of a room full of women empowering each other, supporting each other, and being excited about meeting each other! In those few hours of brunching, it felt like we'd all known each other forever. I'm so thankful for this community, and all the fabulous girls I've met through it! I'm particularly thankful for Bloggers Giving Back, and all the fun we've had planning and organizing this and future events!
Team Bloggers Giving Back hug!
