An Evening With Francois

Monday, July 31, 2017

About two weeks ago I had the honor of attending a blogger meet up at Reunion Tower.  Not only was the venue amazing but I was able to meet and pick the brains of some of Dallas' most influential

I am somewhat of a shy person in a social setting and though I pour my heart out in a blog and through photos, being around strangers for the first time is seriously the most anxiety causing situation I can be in.  But honestly I was so impressed with how welcoming the bloggers were, and I cannot stress enough how insightful they all were.  Having a community where you build each other up is so important, because lets be honest, there is room for all of us!

Francois is a blogger I met through my job at Hard Night Good Morning.  I have worked with him over the past year and he has been nothing but phenomenal for us.  I love his perspective and can we talk about his home... Y'ALL GORG!  So when I got the invite I  had to say YES!  And let me just say his attention to detail did not disappoint, everything from the evening was picture perfect.

I really can't stress enough how fabulous the event was, 20 top bloggers with the best view of Downtown Dallas at sunset with champagne.  We talked and got to connect, which to me is a huge plus.  I am super excited for the collaborations I will be participating in soon and the help I found on my handbag line.  All uncomfortableness aside I made some lasting connections and potentially a fun business one too- so stay tuned.

If champagne 400+ feet in the air wasn't enough to take your breath away we left the night with a swag bag full of amazing goodies from local Dallas companies (even Hard Night Good Morning).  I have been testing out all of them for the past week and have definitely found some new must haves!

I want to give a huge shoutout to Francois for orchestrating such a great evening and to Reunion tower for letting us visit their beautiful geo deck for 360 views of Dallas.  If you are ever visiting Dallas make sure to stop at Reunion tower for a spectacular view.  Lastly thank you to all the brands that donated their products, I truly appreciate it and cannot wait to share my thoughts on each item soon!
