The crazy rain on Friday night didn't stop us from having a fantastic time at our Fall North Carolina Blogger Buzz! Angela, from Head to Toe Chic, and I co-host a mini blogging conference, and have a great time doing it. The NC Blogger Buzz is intended to create a wonderful community for NC bloggers, and to provide an atmosphere of learning and growth.
Vestique in downtown Raleigh was our wonderful host for the evening. I'm in love with their store, and they have such wonderful and helpful ladies working there, so it was such a great place for an event!
We first had small group discussions, where we shared blogging tips, discussed do's and don'ts of blogging, and got to know each other so much better.
Hannah from Swirl of Cinnamon provided all of our yummy food for the evening. (Make sure to like her FB page for all sorts of yummy recipes.) Pecan pie bites, pumpkin cupcakes, meatballs, all sorts of delicious treats. Why didn't I sneak a to-go plate??!
Chelsea from Haute Child in the City was our main speaker for the evening. Chelsea spoke about balancing blogging with life, and she was beyond incredible. She is one of my daily blog reads...I just love her and her blog!
We had the most amazing sponsors. You'll definitely have to check them all out!

Angela and me
^^Me and Jenn. Such a sweetheart! And I'm obsesseddddd with her entire outfit. She got her vest from H&M, and I tried finding it, but failed :(. When you're done with it, Jenn, I'm so serious about buying it from you!
My sister, Jessica was so awesome and came with me to help out with everything. Couldn't have done it without her!
Such a great group of ladies!
Instead of the NC Blogger Buzz being a quarterly event, we are changing it to twice a year…so the next mini-conference will be in the Spring. If you're a North Carolina blogger, we'd love for you to come! (Be sure to like us on Facebook so you can stay up to date with events.) We'll also be doing a summer social activity in-between conferences, so that is something to look forward to as well!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!!
