December Raleigh Blog Society Meet Up!

Out of all of the blog growth I've done this year, I think I can safely say that one of the things that makes me the happiest, is how much this little group of Raleigh bloggers has become to me. The Raleigh Blog Society, honestly, came together as kind of an accident... I was looking for some more girlfriends and wanted to meet women that were into the same things as me. So I hosted a styled dinner and invited a ton of local bloggers. Now, a year later, it has turned into an amazing group of supportive, sweet and creative women that have all become dear friends of mine! I am so thankful for it!

This month's event was hosted by Anthropologie in Durham at the Streets at Southpoint! The event was organized by Danielle Davis and the Anthropologie's personal stylist, Morgan.

Vent Salon did live hair demos for us (more details below)! Bean Traders provided delicious coffee, and Videri provided chocolate for our favors!

See a full line up of the event below! 

^^ These mugs are only $10 right now and the non-foil versions are $8!!

^^ The in-store stylist showed us multiple gift boxes that would be perfect for your loved ones. This one was perfect for the party host! It's little carry-on cocktail kit is adorable!

^^ Their table setting was adorable! It featured some of their top cocktail shakers, glasses and of course tones of coffee by Bean Traders! (Insert heart eye emoji here.)

^^ The ladies from Vent Salon were adorable! They showed us three hair styles that would be perfect for the new year! Plus they gave us some tips and tricks to use for later.

^^ After the Vent Salon hair tutorials, Morgan showed us some of their top gift ideas! This one was perfect for the friend that loves to cook!

Then Danielle showed us some of her top styling choices and we played dress up in Anthro's swoon-worthy fitting rooms!

We had an absolute blast!! If you are a blogger in the Raleigh area we would love to see you at our next event! Sign up to become a Raleigh Blog Society member here!
