After months and months of searching for the perfect venue, inviting brands to be a part of our gathering and getting our closest blogger gals together, Jenna and I threw a #SFspringcelebration to remember! On a remarkably hot, sunny afternoon in the outdoor lounge at Scotland Yard, we gathered to celebrate the supportive San Francisco blogger community we have built over the years over sparkling macarons, carrot juice mimosas, blood orange mimosas- and heck, even the original orange juice mimosas and seemingly endless tasty and interesting food courtesy of Scotland Yard!
There’s nothing quite like being a part of a supportive group of fellow creative girl bosses that are all about #communityovercompetition. With the growing number of bloggers popping up all over the place, it can be a challenge for some to find a community that truly inspires each other to create amazing original content, who support each other on social platforms and of course- are always down to throw a fancy gathering every once in a while (wine and cheese plates come standard with this group)!
When I first began my blog, I knew I wanted to meet a group of women who were on the same path as me. Perhaps some are full-time bloggers, but like myself, many of us use our blogs to fill a creative void that our day jobs don’t necessarily offer. Although the digital world today can sometimes get a bad rep, it allowed me to meet Jenna, one of my closest blogger friends, in addition to a great majority of other San Francisco bloggers. Since meeting on Instagram, Jenna and I have regular girl dates such including eating cake for breakfast at 20th Century Cafe, spending too much money on toast at Mazarine Cafe and devouring everything insight at the Cheese School Of San Francisco. I’m so happy to be a part of this group of girls and with such a wonderful community, what’s not to celebrate?
Jenna and myself had such a wonderful time collaborating with some awesome companies to curate darling party favor baskets for our attendees! From perfect body scrubs by San Francisco based Etta + Billie and face masks by Dermaplus to pink Wedding Cuvée bubbly from Iron Horse Vineyards, hand painted potted succulents and stunning jewels from Azil Boutique, our blogger besties walked away with serious goodies!
A HUGE THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS SPONSORS!
