Weekend Recap: Blogger Meetup Edition

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I know I sure did! I spent the weekend with three amazing bloggers, Jamie from Southern Simplicity, Rachel from Just Peachy, and Bre from Basically Bre! Jamie and Rachel came to Charlotte to visit me and Bre for a weekend of blogger fun! We had all been anxiously looking forward to meeting each other so we were glad the weekend had finally arrived!

The ladies got into town on Friday night and we instantly all hit it off! Which is a good thing considering we were spending the entire weekend together!! 😉 We spent the first hour laughing, chatting, and talking about everything under the sun it seemed! We showed them a fun time in uptown Charlotte and shut the bar down at 2 a.m. It was fun getting to talk, drink, dance, and laugh so much with each other! And yes, this resulted in extremely hurt feet (hello sandals for the rest of the weekend!)


Saturday was such a fun day with all of us! We started the day off at Petal Boutique, a local favorite, and they were having a great sale! All of us played dress up and ended up with some cute new clothes! We ate lunch at 131 Main and it was a delicious, much needed meal! (And yes, we all four ordered the exact same thing….meant to be friends!) We tried to show them a few different areas of Charlotte so after lunch we took them around the Plaza Midwood area for rooftop drinks and fun! Saturday night we got dinner outdoors in South End and had a great last night together!




It wouldn’t be a complete blogger weekend in Charlotte without taking them to the rooftop where Bre and I do our outfit photos! We got to take some pictures together and laugh ridiculously over our attempts at a vlog!


It was so much fun meeting Jamie and Rachel this weekend! I look forward to many more blogger meet ups with them soon!

  • Weekend plan: find Bernadette! 🕶💁🏼‍♀️🌍🎬so beyond thrilled that Where’d You Go Bernadette is officially in theaters TODAY! 🎉 last month I jetted off to Toronto thanks to @bernadettefilm for a once in a lifetime experience. We got to go to an advanced screening of #WheredYouGoBernadette followed by a Q&A with #RichardLinklater and the cast of the movie. It was truly fascinating hearing them talk about @mariasemple’s book to movie adaption, how they related to #Bernadette & all the filming details! I think I’m still reeling from being in the same room as these talented people! And yes, I totally fan girled over meeting & chatting with @sleepinthegardn (PLL FAN 4 LYFE!) 😂

If you loved the book, be sure to see the movie! And if you haven’t read the book yet, definitely add it to your shelf! 📚 #enwreads They did an incredible job adapting this book and maintaining the essence of Bernadette’s witty, exotic character! I think you’ll find yourself relating to Bernadette in *some* way throughout the movie! I loved it - I laughed, I teared up & it’s full of heartwarming moments! Huge thanks to @bernadettefilm for the wonderful weekend in #Toronto! 💙[ad] #cateblanchette #bernadettefilm #troianbellisario

Some days just get the best of ya & today our animals got the best of me and Nick🤣 luckily they’re both ok 🐶🐱 but man, today was rough and stressful! The highlight of my day was meeting @_happygocurly_ for coffee while she was in town this AM! ☕️ We have never met, but had been friends online for years!  It was like grabbing coffee with an old friend! 👯‍♀️ chin up friends, the weekend is *almost* here!
