blogger brunch!

Saturday, February 22, 2014

 
So I actually woke up early on a Saturday morning, and do you know what I did? Went to brunch!

OC Blogger Brunch
 
Yep! I went to the OC Blogger Brunch today, and carpooled over there with some other military spouse bloggers I've met at those blates I've mentioned before. (Elizabeth @ The Young Retiree, Kara @ Ramblings of a Marine Wife, & Jes @ Bleu Dress Jes) We went over to Great Over Good which is a cute little art studio in Santa Ana. The brunch benefited two awesome charities, Working Wardrobes -which provides professional clothing to at risk or homeless individuals, and The Princess Project -which provides prom dresses, shoes, and accessories for young girls who would otherwise be unable to attend their prom. I had such a blast going to a regional blogger meet up, and it was so fun to meet other bloggers in the area! LOVE these blates! (Editing soon to add all the ladies who came to this event! Stay tuned! Or just search the hashtag on twitter!)

My cute (handwritten) nametag!

 
Paper straws in little cups! I had orange juice in mine, and I believe there were mimosas there?

 
Such a cute studio!



 
The craft table! We made a body scrub with almond oil, coconut oil, rose petals, and brown sugar! Can't wait to try it! (Also now I know what to do with that coconut oil that's been sitting in our pantry for months..)


 
Love this setup!

 
 
All of the clothes that were donated!
 
I was so happy to be giving some of my clothes I never touch in my closet a good home! Including a few formal gowns I don't prefer for the birthday balls (don't worry mom, they weren't the ones you gave me!). Now- the spring cleaning continues! This was a great start though! Excited to hopefully have a clean home by summer and the end of finals!
 

 
Blogger business cards! No, I don't have one :)

 
Back in my office... One of our little trinkets from the event!
The card was a gift from Nadine who owns Great Over Good.

 
My craft! Can't wait to try this!
 
 So much fun!! It was a great experience and I was so glad to be able to make it to this event! They are planning on having one each month - next month will also be hosted by Bloggers Giving Back and we'll be making care packages to send to troops overseas. I believe it's March 29th, so other socal bloggers...Check out the website (button below) for details! I'm sure the space will fill up fast since it is limited!
 
Until next time!
