My First Blogger Event



Just days after moving to Salt Lake I was invited to my first Salt Lake City blogging event. Seeing as I know very few people in this city I knew it would be a great opportunity to make some friends. Gentri and I made a plan to go together - Gentri came over to my apartment beforehand to get ready. She was gracious enough to do my hair and makeup and it turned out SUPERB. She is one talented woman!




The party was murder-mystery themed. Everyone was given an identity upon arrival with a nametag to wear, and the key was to find out who among the guests was a murderer. I also one the "best dressed" award and a $50 gift card to Brickyard Buffalo, who was sponsoring the event. I have to give all credit for that to Gentri and her mad makeup skills.

I had a really great time and I met some lovely people as well!



Jessi, Gentri, Rachel, Bre'an and myself. 


I also snapped a few pictures of these lovely girls and, despite the fact that I was rushing/had my settings all funky / am the worst at holding a camera steady in low-light, some turned out pretty well.



Jessi and her husband. 


Bre'an looking darling.


It was a really fun, exciting night. Even though I was a bit nervous to be the "new kid" on the block, I had a ball and was really glad I went.

Glad you had a great time! I love your outfit: lacy dress, pearls galore, feather, and Gentri did a great job on you guys' makeup.

This looks and sounds like so much fun! I've always wanted to go to a blogger meetup, but there's usually not too many where I am. Just an excuse to travel some, I guess :)
