A blogger picnic


 I have been blogging for 2 years now and along the way have made amazing friendships with other bloggers from all over the world.One of my closest friends who is also a blogger lives on the other side of the world. Despite all this, for some unknown reason I never really got to know many of Vancouver's finest bloggers except for my dear friend Jen from Her Waise Choice.

 So when I was finally invited to take part in the 3rd Vancouver bloggers meet-up I was over-ecstatic. The setting : a blogger picnic on the beach which lasted for hours despite the windy weather we were experiencing. 
We had so much to talk about from who takes our photos,  to how we got into blogging, to differences in opinion over Kate's wedding dress!




So who did I have the pleasure in meeting?
 Cee from Coco and Vera who is the mastermind genius behind the blogger meet-ups. Without her, we would not been able to experience this. She organized everything perfectly.
Alicia of AliciaFashionista whose amazing boyfriend Adam snapped all these gorgeous pictures of us. I have 0 photography skills and when I found myself for the first time without my photographer, I freaked out. Alicia was kind enough to let me use all of her photos and I'm extremely grateful to her and Adam who also lend me his sunglasses for some of the photos!

Alex of To Vogue or Bust, who I've already had the pleasure of meeting after the Obakki show for ramen and found we have so much in common! This girl is hilarious! I always laugh so much when I'm around her!
Veronika from Girl and Closet who has amazing photography skills and actually helped me set my camera so I can at least take one photo of everyone!

 Louise of Fifth Sparrow, who is Alex's contender for being hilarious. The two of them side by side just feed off each other's humour and provide the greatest entertainment.
Cara of A Fashion Love Affair who is stunning in person not just on the outside but also on the inside
(smart and kind + beautiful bombshell = perfection!)
Left: Louise, Right: Cara
And yours truly, the shortest of the bunch who had to stand on her tippy toes to overcome the height problem!

 Overall I had a blast and can not wait to hang out with them again soon! Due to my traveling plans, I won't be able to join them on the next two meet-ups ( they have an amazing location planned for the next one), yet I do hope they will take me back in August!

YAY Mina, the post turned out so well :) Glad I could lend you some photos, it's pretty difficult to do a post sans pictures!! You are always so sweet and styled up perfectly, it's always so lovely seeing you! Excited for your travels, and then hopefully another meetup when you're back xo
