THE EVENT: Houston Blogger Symposium

Saturday, September 22, 2012

Last Saturday I attended the Houston Blogger Symposium at my favorite hotel in Houston: Hotel Zaza. I love everything about this Hotel from the ambience, to the themed rooms, the amazing views. The event was on the 11th floor of Zaza which offered fabulous views of the city.  Megan Silanoff of Greetings from Texas put this event together and she did an amazing job. I had so much fun interacting with other bloggers in Houston, shopping the vendor booths and taking diligent notes from the panel discussions.

Of course I had to stop by the Langford Market table! I love them!
Yea...I'm a sucker for taking skyline shots 
Fun goodie bags from Francesca's for the attendees of the Blogger Symposium
The bloggers were seated by tables named after top Fashion Bloggers like Sea of Shoes, I Spy DIY, and Cupcakes & Cashmere
I met the lovely Laura Beck owner of Striped Shirt. She was nice enough to gift me with a top for a product review! Stay tuned for the review!
The symposium started at 10am, so we had yummy parfaits for breakfast...along with champagne and cookies! Ha!
I really liked the styling going on at the Impeccable Pig booth, especially this look on the right with the print and turquoise necklace

However this look by them was my favorite! I loved this LRD with it's cute side cut-outs
The Blogger Panel was really insightful. Lots of great information passed along from these experienced and successful bloggers. My favorite tip was "Monetize the Hate" when the panelists were asked how to deal with negative comments on your blog.
In addition to sipping champagne, and eating cookies at 10 am, I also met some new bloggers in the Houston Area! I immediately connected with Lindsey of Portugal Ponderings, Selena of The Heights Life, Bri of Just Bri, and Kaitlin of Kaitlin Leigh. And of course it was great to run into members of Houston Fashion Bloggers, Taylor Brione, Melonie Campbell, Yolonda Washington, & Tomekia Jackson who were also there in attendance. I had wanted to get an HFB "step & repeat" picture but ran out of time...oh well! Next time.
