Boston Bloggers Unite!

How was everyone's weekend? I have so much to share with you all! This past Saturday was a busy (but very exciting) one. Saturday afternoon marked the first ever Boston Fashion Blogger Mixer! This amazing event was organized by Jen, Amy, and Liana. I was really nervous before hand, it was kind of intimidating knowing that so many stylish girls would be there., but every one was incredibly nice! Jen, Amy and Liana even made name tags that would get us all discounts at Newbury Street locations:

I think my favorite part was meeting people i had already been acquainted with online like Sarah (above with Jen) and Amy in person. It's a funny feeling because you already feel like you know them a little from reading their blogs every day.
Luna Boston was our headquarters for the day, they carry loads of hand bags and accessories and I fell in love with the tie-dye number above which was part of the Spring 2010 Preview on I didn't buy it, it was just really pretty. Hpnotiq was also our drink sponsor for the day, the reps were extremely nice too. After schmoozing for awhile it was time to go shopping! There were loads of deals available for us at many different Newbury Street locations like Oak, Fresh, and Madewell. Fresh had a cute gift bag waiting for us when we came in (I think I'm a new Fresh junkie), and Oak gave us a couple of cute buttons. I actually didn't buy anything except something small for my secret santa at work. But I saw many things I would love to have!

Jen's husband Kev was kind enough to be our photographer for the day, too! Overall I had a great time, I really hope something like this happens again, it was so nice to meet these amazing girls and get to know them all better outside of blogland! I'll be adding a "Boston Bloggers" section of my blog roll this weekend, so you can check out all these lovely ladies too!
