*Galentine’s Day: coined by Amy Poehler’s Parks and Rec character Leslie Knope, It’s the perfect chance to get your best gals together and CELEBRATE.*
When I first started blogging, I thought I was entering a world of me, myself and I. However, I quickly realized blogging is not a solitary endeavor. The blogging world is filled with people supporting one another and rooting each other on to be the very best at their craft. When people ask what I enjoy most about blogging, I always say the community.
Last April, I joined Style Collective, a group of like-minded, hard-working and stylish blogger beauties. This past weekend, we had a Southern California meet-up and gathered together for a festive Galentine’s celebration. We met at the Shade Hotel in Redondo Beach on a beautiful Southern California winter day.
Located in the beautiful Redondo Beach marina, the Sea Level Restaurant at The Shade Hotel was the perfect place to meet my Style Collective sisters. In true fashion blogger style, everyone was decked out in various shades of red, pink and white and on a mission to celebrate Galentine’s Day with a splash. We laughed and toasted as we formed new friendships, sharing our fashion blogging and life journeys together.
I’m pretty sure I’m speaking for all Style Collective sisters when I say that joining this group is one of the best decisions I have ever made. We’ve developed a bond like no other. Fashion is a powerful medium and I am thankful to be on this journey with such amazing women!
Thank you also to these amazing and generous sponsors for making our day even more memorable!
