We had a blast hosting our very first blogger social event just yesterday at Wish Boutique in Denver and are giving you a peak inside. We had sips which included yummy fall cocktail, snacks like the amazing cookies below from Sugardough, some shopping (complete with a great discount), goodie bags, and of course a photo booth & selfie station. The fun thing about bringing bloggers together for an event, is that you know it's going to be well documented: we do love our photos...and boomerangs.
Our goal with this event was to bring some incredible Denver bloggers together with an amazing local brand for a night of fun and let the magic happen. And it did.
Every strong woman needs a fabulous tribe backing them, especially in the big world of blogging! I know many of us as bloggers have been able to find some pretty cool online communities to plug into. Quite a few of us also have a couple "insta besties" that we may have never even met in real life. Learning from each other and sharing tips & tricks is the easiest way to grow not only our own blogs, but as a community.
There is just something truly powerful about taking these connections offline.
Getting to laugh together, to chat about all the current challenges and opportunities we're facing in our blogs and businesses, and getting to make new connections that have potential to develop into amazing friendships or even collaborations, is something that's just easier to do in person with a cocktail or cookie in hand.
We were super lucky to be able to partner with an amazing brand to help facilitate these in-person connections and host our fall social.
Wish Boutique is one of those love at first sight brands where it doesn't take browsing around the shop very long to truly fall in love with their brand. I mean, just read their manifesto, and you'll already be on your way. Many of the bloggers I chatted with felt an instant connection and were buzzing about different ideas for collaborating and partnering with Wish Boutique (besides all the instagraming we found ourselves doing)
When local brands and bloggers get together, incredible things happen. As a blogger, there's something about being able to really get to know the brand and their story on a personal level that makes it so much more fun to create collaborations together and support each other. What better way to do that than fall cocktails, yummy snacks, a photo booth, and some fun conversations with the Wish girls?
As a local brand, partnering with local bloggers means you can reach a targeted audience on social media that's actually in the right location to come visit your store. It was so much fun to see connections being made and ideas being thrown around about ways to collaborate.
A huge thank you to our amazing Denver bloggers who came and to Wish Boutique for hosting us. We can't wait to get started planning our next event!
