DFW Blogger Meetup Pictures!

This past Saturday, we had our first DFW Blogger Meetup!  Fifteen amazing girls came out and spent an amazing afternoon talking over lunch, taking outfit pictures, and getting some makeup done courtesy of Allure Magazine and Christian Dior.  Here's a big group picture with all of us:

We all met up at 11am for brunch at La Duni at Northpark Mall.  Unfortunately La Duni had several large parties that day so we ended up across the hall at Cibus.
We had our own little private dining room for lunch!

Sad that I'm wearing 5.5" heels and am still the shortest one!

Introductions were made around the table.
Funny stories were shared.  :)
After a delicious lunch (that included bottomless bellinins!), we headed out into the outside park and did a little mingling and had a fun little photo session.

Then we headed over to the Dillards Dior counter where I had won an Allure makeover event ($25 gift card for all my guests).  We ended up having a little fun with makeup.  :)

The Dior Beauty Director taught us how to do a basic smokey eye. 
Irene getting some eyeshadow tips.
Angga getting some bright lipstick.
Angga and Stephanie post-makeover.  They're both so beautiful to begin with!
And that basically sums it up!  The last makeup session didn't finish until after 5pm.  Angga, Jessica, and I did a little shopping (we're at the mall already, right?).  Angga and I made another trip out to the Galleria where we hit up one of my favorite stores, Zara, in the hopes that they had a sale.  We didn't have any luck with the sales that day, but neither of us left the malls empty-handed that day!

I highly recommend organizing a blogger meetup in your city!  It's fairly easy and it's so much fun to meet people with similar interests and share blogging experiences.  Our current plan is to meet at least once every 3 months so look out for more meetup pictures in the future!

For pictures from other attending bloggers, check out their posts!  (and if I missed your post, please let me know and I'll add you!)
