Houston Blogger Symposium

This weekend I attended the first ever Houston Blogger Symposium. After attending the Texas Style Conference in March, I was very excited to check out the Houston event. ­čÖé
Megan of Greetings from Texas put on the whole thing – with some help from her friends and family. She is just as hilarious in person as she is on her blog.
On Friday night I attended the Kick Off Party at Langford Market. Unfortunately my camera was out of commission for the weekend. ­čÖü
BUT at least I had my phone….
 I may or may not have done some shopping.
A lovely Langford employee helped me style up a couple outfits.
 Also? It was raining on and off all weekend. Can you tell?
I spent some time with the Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno sisters.
And I finally met Julianne [middle] of Francesca’s Collections in person. ­čÖé

Saturday morning was lovely. We all met for breakfast and panels at Hotel Zaza.
 Designs by Kirsten.
  The blogger panel was up first. Megan asked great questions! And these ladies offered some excellent advice.

[Don’t forget to enter the giveaway!]
 The sponsor panelists were also full of helpful information regarding what their businesses look for in a blog.
Speakers: Meg; Julianne; Davina.
[and Megan on the end]
 PR 101 with Lisa.
I took avid notes throughout and can’t wait to apply these things to my own blog and brand.
The bits that especially stood out to me were discussions about balancing blogger life with real life.

Everyone who attended the Symposium received a couple swag bags.
How sweet and amazing is that??
Along with a variety of coupons, here are a few of the lovely goodies inside.
[also?? everyone received a couple articles of clothing!]
Here is a full list of the lovely sponsors that contributed to the Houston Blogger Symposium.

Every once in a while you need a little motivation in bloggyblog land, and this was perfect!
If you have the chance, I highly recommend you attend a blogger event in your city. ­čÖé




  1. What does the Florida scent smell like?? I keep searching for blog events here in Florida, but since I ALWAYS get lost going to Miami- they would need to be in Broward/WPB/PSL area.

    And the lace detail on the dress you tried on is so pretty!
