Oh my goodness, this weekend was just wonderful. I attended my very first blogging conference, Go Blog Social, on Friday and Saturday. It was so much more than I was expecting! Not only did I learn a lot from the speakers, I also met some really wonderful fellow bloggers.
The conference took place at the Berg Event Space in the heart of downtown Kansas City. What a beautiful space! It was in a great location too, about a block away from the Sprint Center and right across the street from the KC Star building.
I tried to put together two of my cutest outfits to wear to the event since I knew it would be packed with fashionable ladies. I definitely didn’t win the best dressed award (seriously, you should have seen how well dressed this group of women was!), but I did like what I wore.
Like I said earlier, I got to meet and talk with some amazing fellow bloggers. I think my favorite part of the whole weekend was lunch on Saturday when I joined a few other ladies at Bristol during our lunch break. I had such a great time getting to know them and hearing their stories!
I met tons of other awesome girls that I didn’t get to spend as much one-on-one time with, but who were wonderful nonetheless. Just look at all these pretty business cards I collected!
Another perk of attending a blogger conference like this is all the goodies you get to take home! Look at all this stuff: makeup from Stila, Better Homes & Garden magazine compliments of our keynote speaker, Kaelin Zawilinski, the Editorial Manager at BHG.com, granola from Nola, a gift card from Tieks shoes, and more. How cool!
There were also tons of giveaways during the conference and I was lucky enough to win one of them! I got this cute and perfect-for-spring infinity scarf from Tulip boutique in KC. I can’t wait to wear it!
I had such an amazing time at Go Blog Social! Thanks so much to all of our speakers and to the GBS for putting together this incredible event! For lots more pictures of Go Blog Social check out the GBS team’s instagram account here.
