Link Love, Vol. 12

I know I say this EVERY week, but this week has most certainly been the busiest and most jam packed week I've had in months. Work has been crazy busy, I've had events every night and the to-do list just seems to keep growing instead of dwindling. I definitely am not complaining because it's all fun things that I'm doing and working on. This girl just needs a few more hours of sleep is all I'm asking for, ha!

I kicked the week off by attending Rosé Media's Inaugural Present Party. The holidays definitely came early this year and I'm so not mad about it!



A friend of mine, Sophie Pyle, hosted 15 of DC's most influential Instagrammers for a night of opening presents, socializing, sipping some rosé and of course, Instagramming.





Sophie (featured in the photo with me above) represents some amazing brands here in DC, such as The Kellogg Collection, Fornash, Mervis Diamond Importers and NYC blogger What2WearWhere. Sophie had little gifts for all of us from each of her brands. I loved learning more about the various businesses she represents.

Rounding out the week, I attended a UT Alumni Reception on Wednesday and last night I attended the Snobswap party, which featured designer pieces at major discounts! Can't wait to share with y'all what I picked up!

This weekend won't slow down any, that's for sure. Tonight I'm attending a launch party for a new DC PR company, tomorrow I'll be joining some fabulous DC bloggers for a shop crawl throughout Georgetown and Sunday I'll be spending the day tackling that to-do list. A fun, but busy weekend!

  2. So while it's true that the people make an event (and the people definitely made any event!) this venue NYC definitely adds a different dimension to it. Went there for an evening event and I was really impressed.
