TOPSHOP 214 Magazine Release Blogger/Writer Event

I attended an awesome event at TOPSHOP in Soho on Friday to celebrate the launch of TOPSHOP 214 Magazine. Mega-Blogger Karen Blanchard from Where Did U Get That was there along with Indigo Clarke who is a fashion journalist and columnist. A lot of the bloggers from NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group were also in attendance as well. We had a great time getting wonderful advice and tips…and shopping ofcourse.

Check their footwork…I’m in love!
Syreeta from NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group and blog Mosa Muse showed up.
One of my favorite bloggers Nubia ofNubia’s Nonsense and also a member of NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group was in attendance as well. I originally met her at IFB Conference!
Who is super stoked is this picture…I AM! This is my second time meeting Karen and she is so sweet and humble. This is my second photo with her see my first photo when I met her at IFB Conference. For those who don’t know Karen is who inspired me to start my blog. Last year she was featured in AmNY and I was just in awe. She gave us some awesome advice.

So I had an awesome time at this event especially seeing my favorite blogger Karen Blanchard. Ugh…she just…she is my blogger shero! I also did a little shopping with the fashion mavens of NYC Fashion Blogger Meetup Group. Ohhhhhh..has anyone noticed anything different about me????
YES..I cut my hair. I love love love love love love it. I was nervous. It’s a little longer than it was before I got my “hair enhancement” but I’ve been getting tons of compliments. It’s so great to wake up and just go. I literally havent done my hair in 6 days..haha
What do you all think of my new do?

    Kudos for posting such a useful blog. Your weblog is not only informative and also very artistic too. There usually are extremely couple of people who can write not so easy articles that creatively. Keep up the good work !
