Blogger Event & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up Party!

August 18, 2016

When I first got the invitation to Reward Style’s Hostessing Workshop, I wasn’t too excited.  Entertaining to me means I’ll order the pizza and you bring the paper plates. But when I realized that it would be a great way to meet and spend time with some of my favorite bloggers I was all in!

It was such a wonderful evening. The venue was so charming … The Cheese School and Lila B Design in San Francisco.


I drove up with Cathy of Bay Area Fashionista. I love this photo of us because it shows how windy it was.  And of course I’m being silly about it. Imagine that.
How fabulous is Cathy’s bag?!  Be sure to follow her so you can always have her outfit details.

And hey look … she’s a darn good photographer too:
fashion over 40, fashion over 50Reward Style is a wonderful company to work with, by the way!
