Empowered women, empower women. What better way to network, get to know other female bloggers and celebrate Valentine's than by having a Galentine's meetup? Last week I did just that, I hosted Galentine's at Rock'n'Joe in Union, NJ with blogger pal Lillie of Jersey Fashionista.
I was asked a few times why I hosted this meet up, I had no reason other than I wanted to met up with other bloggers. Events are a big deal in blogger world and sometimes for various reason many do not get to attend so I made one where any blogger or reader could
Every person, for $10 was able to order a salad, half sandwich and coffee or tea from the Rock'n'Joe menu. In addition thanks to my awesome sponsor, there was Barefoot Wine and Bubbly! We all know how much I enjoy event planning so I went ahead and handled all of the decor, I wanted it to be girly and feminine.
Be sure to head over to The LVR shop by Lee of Miss LV blog, she sponsored our banners and photo props. How cute are they?!
Everyone went home with a sweet little "swag bag" which included thanks to our sponsors - Brushlove, Sinful Colors and Hard Candy, a makeup brush, nail polish and lipstick. There were also an array of beauty samples.
We had two giveaways, one for a handbag from Glitter Buzz Boutique and one for Ralph Lauren Romance.
Everyone really seemed to have enjoyed themselves and the best part was that I got to meet new bloggers and bloggers I have befriend via social media but have never met in person. Cannot wait for the next one! Be sure to keep up with me on Facebook so you won't miss any upcoming meetups!
