A Blogger Holiday Party + Giveaway!

If you follow me on Snapchat {nrich14} and instastories, you saw I attended an oh-so-fun holiday Christmas party with some of my local blogger babes: Angela from Head To Toe Chic, Meghan from I'm Fixin' To, Courtney from Courtney Fashioninsta and Stephanie from A Style Of Her Own  

Angela graciously hosted us at her adorable house and Glory Roze Photography snapped our pics!  We each brought some snacks to share and a gift to exchange (Pssst there's also a chance for you to win our gifts below!) while Christmas music played in the background and balsm candles were lit. Talk about getting into holiday spirit!

How cute are Ang's decorations? I LOVE her table runner and place settings - so festive!

I'll have more details on our food choices later this week (and my mini apple pie recipe!) 

After getting all our food set up and drinks mixed, we sat down to have some great girl conversation. Of course the topic of guys was brought up (we are girls after all!) but we also discussed careers, blogging, our love (and sometimes hate) relationship with social media platforms, and just sharing in what's going with each other lives. Sometimes we forget in our "busy-ness" how important it is to just connect with each other! It was also great to connect with some gals who experience the same growing pains of being a blogger who also has a full time job. 

Once we had sipped some yummy champagne and Moscow mules, it was time to exchange presents! We decided that we wanted to offer our readers the chance to win our gifts - the perfect way to say "Thank You" for being such amazing fans of our blogs! Does anyone else love the feeling of unwrapping a present? It makes you feel like you're a little kid again!

A Blogger Holiday Giveaway

I chose to gift a pair of earrings from The Flourish Market (more details on those later!) but I ended up opening one of those amazing smelling Blue Capri candles from Anthropologie (Thanks Meghan!) Steph also gifted one of the gifts that currently on my wish list: Emily Lee's Grace Not Perfection book. Also a girl can never have too many coffee cups (especially gold ones!) or blanket scarves!
