[Event] Arizona Blogger Conference

I wanted to post something different in the sea of giveaways this week on the blog. Enjoy my recap on the Arizona Blogger Conference that took place this past weekend. _____________________________________________________________________

On Saturday, April 28th desert dweller bloggers from across the state came together for the first annual Arizona Blogger Conference hosted by the brilliant minds of the Phoenix Style Collective (PSC). Held at the trendy Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale, Az, the conference was anything but lackluster. Don’t underestimate the talent that the Grand Canyon state has to offer because we are stylish bunch ready to be taken seriously! After the successful launch party held back in January, the Phoenix Style Collective has done it again and this time they spared no expense.

Imagine a Madewell styling station, killer giveaways (Karen Kane, anyone?), a professional posing teach, experts of their field speakers and 90 women dressed to the nines (and a couple handsome men, complete with bow ties and suspenders) and you’ve got the Arizona Blogger Conference! The Saguaro Hotel was the perfect venue for a conference full of creative minds. The vibrant splashes of pinks and oranges across the walls, the festive Mexican paper mache skulls (I die!) and the hipster atmosphere was the ideal backdrop for loca lbloggers and their chic ensembles.

I met a bevy of amazing women- from lifestyle to fashion bloggers, to foodies; the conference served up a talented batch of attendees. And don’t even get me started with wonderful speakers that the panel was comprised of! We got to hear from hilarious and witty Sarah Rhodes of Arrow + Apple Photography, the gorgeous beauty behind Running on Happiness, Katie Leavitt, and super sweet Chelsea Brown of the life and personal style blog Tea Talk, to name a few. I had the pleasure of finally meeting AZ bloggers which I adore, Katie and Ashley, not to mention have actual conversations with them and talks of possible meet ups in the future (ekk!).

All in all, the first annual Arizona Blogger Conference was yet another successful event brought to us by the Phoenix Style Collective. It was a very informative and fun conference, mainly focusing on local unity within the Phoenix community. I have high hopes for future PSC events and hope they occur more frequently.

Have you attended a blogger conference in your state recently? Dish!


**Don’t forget about enter the awesome blogaversary giveaways celebrating an amazing year!


I was originally going to wear this outfit to the Arizona Blogger Conference that’s taking place this coming Saturday but obviously decided against it. I wanted to go with my trusty python printed pants (alliteration anyone?) because they add a little pep to my step, or swaggy as the Biebs likes to whisper to us. I always seem to have just a little more confidence and a little more swag when I wear them. And if you were wondering, yes I have used swaggy in casual conversation before.

Speaking of the Az Blogger Conference, I am super excited and can’t wait to attend! The (first and hopefully annual) conference is brought to us local bloggers by the Phoenix Style Collective. Remember the PSC launch party I attended a couple months back? Well they are bringing yet another amazing event our way and are even providing swag bags, not to mention the awesome speakers and opportunity to meet more local bloggers!! Ok, I think I’ve expressed enough excitement. But don’t worry, I’ll report back with the details next week;)

Happy Wednesday my loves and welcome all the new Tumblr friends!
