Simply Stylist

SimplyStylist-17This past weekend I had the pleasure of heading back to my old stomping grounds in Chicago (swoon) to attend the Simply Stylist event at the Dana Hotel and Spa AND I finally got to meet Chelsea (and her boyfriend, Jeff) from LLinaBC. Can we talk about how amazingly friendly, hilarious, and gorgeous this girl is? She is exactly as she appears to be on her blog, plus more – she is hands down just such a cool chick.

At the event on Saturday, we were wined mimosa-ed and dined at brunch, heard a fabulous panel of women speak, shopped local Chicago brands, and attended informational sessions about blogging, social media, and finding our voice. All of these women speakers were beyond inspirational, hardworking, poised, fashionable, gorgeous, friendly, and full of so much information (the list goes on) – something to aspire too. My favorite part of the day though was meeting other passionate women aspiring to make a change in their lives and to reach their goals. I learned so much that I hope to start implementing here on this blog soon and through the rest of my daily life that I’m already looking forward to my next blogger event!
