Southern Blog Society

Since I started First Impressions back in January, I have been looking forward to applying to become a member of a well known group of bloggers, Southern Blog Society. SBS was founded last January by bloggers Cathy Anderson of Poor Little It Girl and Jessica Camerata of My Style Vita

In a little over a year Southern Blog Society has grown to represent 11 southern states and the District of Columbia, all made up by fashion, beauty, food and lifestyle bloggers. SBS has also begun the early stages of expanding to all regions of the United States. It's amazing what both of these women have accomplished in such a short period of time!! 

With that said, I was ecstatic when I received First Impressions' acceptance as a member of Southern Blog Society!!! 

I found out toward the end of last week and was informed of a meet up happening that following Sunday. Although I had Taste of the South the night before, I just had to go and meet the bloggers who represent Washington DC and Virginia

The Spring Southern Blog Society meet up for DC and Virginia was held at Cava Mezze in Clarendon. 
On a rainy, snowy, windy and cold morning (well hell, all types of weather were accounted for that morning), we met for brunch. There were about 14 of us in attendance. It was great getting to meet some of the bloggers that I knew from social media or had chatted with via email. 

We discussed all things blog, took lots of photos of our food and drinks, and didn't even feel guilty about being on our phones... I mean come on, it was a table full of bloggers. I learned so much from talking to other girls who have been blogging for years. I always love meeting new people and making new friends, but it was especially exciting to be able to talk to people about my blog and have them understand what I am saying, ha!

Some of the bloggers in attendance were:

Be sure to checkout and follow all of these bloggers' wonderful sites!
(My apologies if I am leaving anyone out)
I am already looking forward to the next SBS meet up!!!

P.S. The photo from brunch above won me a $25 gift card!! 
Not bad for a morning of eating, drinking and socializing!!!

Don't forget to follow on FacebookInstagram and Twitter for more F.I. fun!
