I’m honestly not sure if I hit my stride as a blogger until I met Dani of Blonde in the District, and through her, the fantastic network of women who meet monthly-ish at Bubbles & Bloggers events. Like most bloggers I’ve met, Dani and I found each other on social media and I was actually at the first B&B event- it wasn’t even called that! We picked the name after entirely too many mimosas (at least on my part) and the name seemed fitting.
I am entirely in awe of Dani. She founded this little group that has snowballed into a bit of a phenomenon, just so she could get bloggers and local beauty/ fashion names together and collaborating. She also works full time, runs her own blog, and has become on of my best friends (she’s also a great Secret Santa!) I have said this SO. MANY. TIMES. but she is a huge reason that I took the leap to rebrand my blog and stretch my wings as a blogger. I will be forever grateful to her for that.
