I gave myself a one week deadline to have this post ready and boy am I cutting it close. I wish I had more pictures of the actual event, but of course in my haste to be on time, I left it. Next Time there will be more event photos!
I am so happy to say that on Wednesday August 12th, I was fortunate enough to celebrate with the Ms. Kitty Bradshaw, Gap Brand Enthusiast for her 1 year Blogiversary! This was my first,of hopefully many, blogger event. In case you haven’t been over to www.Kittybradshaw.com I suggest you do so immediately. Kitty gives us her New York Life from her California perspective. Being that I’m from Jersey, being hip to things in NYC is a must have. She also does reviews, shoes, and so much more. And we all know how much I love shoes.
Kitty and I went shoe shopping together a few months ago, and that was DANGEROUS!! We were bbaaddd for each other!! My pockets are still recovering! Which is why I want to do it again! I loovvveee a fun shopping buddy. Kitty has also been a mentor to me in this blog world. She gives me great advice on how to make my site a success. I <3 Kitty.
Ok, so enough about Kitty, on with the party!! Th e party was held at Nightengale Lounge in East Village in NYC. Nightengale is on the corner of 13th and 2nd Ave, just a few blocks from the 14th St. PATH station. It was cute, quaint, and best of all cheap! They had happy hour drink specials which included my $5 cosmo and my $4 well drink (bay breeze w/ vodka)! (For those that don’t know what a well drink is, its house vodka or rum mixed with a juice or soda). Kitty gave out some great gift bags, featuring Gap Jeans & South Pole shoes. My bag also included some Almond Cookie lotion from Carol’s Daughter, a soy candle from Yum Yum Candles, and Sprite Green
In addition to racking up on some HOT goodies, I also met some cool new people! I met some of the guys who work at Cake Man Raven (infamous for their Red Velvet Cake), I met Serious Bok of LuxeKultur.com, Tamina of TheMinaScope.com, and Jamilah from TheBeautifulStruggler.com. If you get a chance to check them out, please do! I didn’t get a chance to meet every blogger there, but I am working my way down the reference sheet and checking their sites out.
Maybe one day soon we’ll be having an equally FAB celebration for Cleo Sunshine!!
