Live, Love, Blog + Giveaway

The week of looove is upon us, and I couldn’t be more excited! A couple of weekends ago, a few bloggy friends and I got together to celebrate all this holiday stands for – love, friendship, and chocolate (right?) – along with a common favorite we all share… blogging! valgiveaway10
The day was filled with sequins, laughter, and more selfies than you can actually image. I had the chance to finally meet so many darling ladies who I’ve gotten to know through social media (ignore the creepiness of that comment… I’m normal, pinky promise), and swear I was shaking out of excitement/nerves for the first 30 minutes.
A beautiful table scape was provided by M&M Special Events,
along with gorgeous floral arrangements by Posh Floral.
There were plenty of pink, bubbly, and sparkly accessories…
sweet treats and sprinkles…
school spirit (this cutie was a senior at UT during my freshman year)…
styled sketches from each of our blogs by the oh-so-talented Lauren Martin (recognize this one?)…
and plenty of XOXO’s…
The whole event was photographed by the lovely Dyan, and planned by the crazy talented Kristin, and what a ball it was! We had so much fun that we decided to make a day of it, changing out of our rather conspicuous pink and red into more mainstream (but just as fun!) outfits for an afternoon of shopping, and then dinner. (See my complete brunch outfit here!)
And now for the giveaway…
To pass along hugs and kisses to you, we’re giving away $250 to Victoria’s Secret! I could blow all of that on comfy sweats in a heartbeat, just sayin. Be sure to enter through the Rafflecopter widget below, and check out all the cuties who are participating above!
