Last week I had the pleasure of attending a local networking event in DC called #BloggerScene’s Summer Send-Off. It was a wonderful opportunity to connect with a number of fashion, lifestyle and beauty bloggers in the metropolitan area, not to mention I also received an amazing swag bag with lots of cool stuff, namely a free class at Pure Barre (purbarre.com) which I’ve heard so much about. Hmmm, I may have to post my thoughts after I take the class. The event was nice, even though I have to admit, I kind of felt like an impostor because although I do blog, I would hardly consider myself to be a blogger. :p Crazy… I know.
Check us out. Can you spot me in the mix?
Anywho, I wanted to take a min to introduce just a few of the Mobilenistas I had an opportunity to connect with that eve and why I think they are all so amaze:
NATALIE OF THE FASHIONABLY BROKE
- Natalie was one of the event organizers, very personable and easy going even in the midst of everything that was going on that evening. She was a great host and is part of the dynamic sister blogging duo. Their site is dedicated to inspiring the fashion-obsessed and linking people to their favorite brands and products. I can tell that these two are hard workers, go getters and very business savvy . Visit them at http://www.thefashionablybroke.com/ @NatalieandErika
ANGELICA OF CLARENDON MOMS
2. Angelica is a bubbly and warm fashionista who greeted me as though we were old friends. She was a panelist that evening who graciously shared some of her insider knowledge and best practices with the group. She is super passionate about sharing all kinds of useful and trendy information, particularly with mothers. Case in point, she was recently featured on a local morning show sharing some much needed back to school tips. Say hi to her over at: http://clarendonmoms.com/ @ClarendonMoms
ASHLYN OF LET IT BE BEAUTIFUL
3. Ashlyn had just arrived from another event but was mingled right in (shopping bag in tow) as though she never missed a thing. I loved her preppy style and most of all her engaging and genuine personality. We struck up a conversation and I was surprised by the number of Instagram followers she had. Immediately I began picking her brain. Not only did she give me some advice on the spot, but she even offered to sit down and chat more over a drink of coffee. How cool is that? Be sure to check out her site for the latest and the greatest fashion trends, you won’t be disappointed. http://www.letitbebeautiful.com/blog/ @loveeashlyn
EMALIA and MARISA OF CLOVER RIOT
4. Emalia and Marisa are two DC natives who recently came together to blog about their passion for fashion, photography, food, and beauty. What’s so striking about these two is on the outside, they are complete opposites, but beyond that they have so much in common as far as their tastes are concerned. The two were super friendly, motivated and very encouraging. They’ve only been on the scene for a short time, but they’re already making waves. We’re definitely looking forward to working with them soon. Check them out! http://www.cloverriot.com/ @CloverRiot
