{Nordstrom YOUphoria Event Recap}

Last Thursday was the Youphoria blogger event at Nordstrom Oakbrook and I had sooo much fun- especially getting the chance to finally meet in person and hang out with some amazing Chicago-area bloggers including the other girls competing in the fashion face off, Nikkia & Jen, and our fabulous event host, Liz.  Nordstrom must have read my mind for this event because it had all my favorite things- a great DJ, a fun photobooth, mini snacks & desserts, fall-inspired cocktails and of!!  

Thanks to everyone who came out to start the weekend early with us last week- it was so fun meeting you all!  And also big thanks to the girls at the MAC counter for glamming me up before the party. Oh and the best part of the whole night (besides seeing to get my blog name in huge signs all over Nordstrom!)....I actually won the fashion face off thanks to all your votes!! You guys are the best. :)
