My First Bloggers Workshop

My first bloggers workshop! On Saturday I attended my first bloggers workshop with Olerato Pharasi from House of OP.It was so much fun meeting fellow bloggers, getting to know them personally and hearing about their experience in the blogging world .

The workshop was held at the Protea Hotel in Port Elizabeth.  Olerato took time to familiarize herself with our blogs and each blogger. She gave each one of us specific tips on things we can improve and things she liked about our blogs.

We also talked about what type of blogger we are and what make us different. She even had some tips for those who would like to monetize their blogs and turn it into a business. Needless to say after 2 hours we were ready for coffee and some eats and treats. We each got to take home a booklet with everything we discussed and more.

During the workshop we also had the opportunity to write down some blogging goals for 2017. So I decided this year  I want to:

  1. Collaborate with a fellow blogger.
  2. Post more.
  3. Improve on my blog photography.
  4. Attend more bloggers events.

I was pretty excited for my first bloggers workshop. We do not have a lot of bloggers events in Port Elizabeth and I feel like during events like these you really get to know your fellow bloggers and learn from them. A big thank you to Olerato for hosting such a fun event. I am looking forward to the next one.  Let me know in the comments if you’ve attended any bloggers events recently.

All dressed up

If you know me you know I will find any excuse to get dressed up. I love wearing heels and doing my hair and makeup. And nothing looks better than a man in a tuxedo, am I right…. I know typical girl. So when I got invited to a black tie event I absolutely jumped at the opportunity. I spent weeks pinning different dresses to my Pinterest board and looking for the perfect pair of shoes. My poor boyfriend had to endure several shopping trips to make sure I have the right shoes, accessories and lipstick.

I saw this lovely pair of black heels and fell in love instantly. Usually after 20 minutes of wearing heels my feet start to kill me, but these heels were so comfortable I didn’t even break them in.

I cannot wear costume jewelry. I feel like my body starts to reject it and I end up with a horrible red rash and Lovisa proved the answer. Their Stirling Silver jewelry line is super affordable and absolutely stunning.

I don’t often wear big and chunky earrings, but felt that the occasion called for it and I think it pulled the entire look together.

For my eyes and hair I kept it simple. A smokey eye with a slight wing was achieved using only Inglot makeup. One of their consultants did my makeup for the night and it looked absoletly amazing. I was so impressed with this brand. Not only is it cruelty free but also affordable considering it is higher end.

My dress looked amazing and was exactly what I wanted. I felt daring yet classy and sophisticated. A local designer made it and it fits like a dream. I absolutely can’t wait for the next black tie event.

 It was such a lovely event and I felt absolutely empowered and fabulous in my dress. With lovely friends and a handsome boyfriend what more can a girl ask for.
