NC Blogger Buzz: Spring Session

What a wonderful evening we had last Friday night at the Spring Session of our NC Blogger Buzz!  Angela, from Head to Toe Chic, and I co-host a mini-blogging conference twice a year, and have such 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.  

Sara, from Sara Logan Photography, (remember this amazing shoot?!) photographed our evening, and I can't get over how much I love these pictures. I love photographers who capture real emotion, and she most certainly does!

^Nicole, manager of Bevello (definition of fabulous!)

Bevello in Cameron Village was our host for the evening, and it could not have been more perfect.  The shop and the ladies of Bevello are so beautiful and wonderful, and treated us so well that night. 

We mingled and ate yummy treats from Bevello, and food from one of our sponsors PDQ, and ummm.....still thinking about those delicious chicken tenders!  

We then heard from our amazing speakers Molly from Still being Molly and Emily from Life with Emily.  They. were. fantastic.  Molly spoke about working with brands and sponsors,  Emily spoke about branding your blog, and then they hosted a Q&A session.

In between speakers we separated into smaller groups, and discussed all things blog (so much fun and helpful to do with other bloggers, of course!), and got to know each other much better.

^^ :)

Pink Owl Photography provided a photo booth for us.  We posed as groups along with a blogging tip from each group.  (We'll be sharing all of these blogging tips on our FB page soon!)

We had fantastic sponsors for our Spring Session.  You'll definitely have to check them all out!
