Go Blog Social 2014 Recap

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.GBS 2014 Day 1GBS Day 2 Outfit

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!
