’s 2 Year Blogiversary Party


Every now and then in New York City there is an event that is just phenomenal. One you’ll tweet about later and will think, “when I have an event I want it to be just like this.” computer stations

That was the case at Kitty Bradshaw’s 2nd Blogiversary Bloggers Networking Event. Kitty took the idea of a Johnson’s Girl Talk Cause Party and transformed it into a lavish event. Held at the APART style showroom, the party was quite possibly THE blogger event of the year. Kitty promised that bloggers would be treated like royalty and they were. There was something going on in every room. set up computer stations for bloggers to log on and receive “unbiased skincare advice.” Melanie and I enjoyed the complimentary manicures from the Sakura Nail & Spa techs. (I can’t help but smile everytime I look down and see the hot pink Priti nail polish on my hands.) There was a fabulous footwear display by Nina Shoes. Flowing from two bars were drinks courtesy of Smirnoff Vodka and Skinny Water. It wouldn’t be right for me to write this post without mentioning Tonnie’s Minis cupcakes. The bite sized cupcakes are delicious and they’re so tiny that you can enjoy one without worrying about messing up your summer diet, if you’re on one.

The party was not only a celebration of the second year of, it was also a cause party to raise money for the Angel Street Thrift Shop. Several of Kitty’s sponsors donated items that were raffled off to attendees. We must’ve had the luck of the Irish because I won a Smartbox Serenity Spa Card, and Melanie won twice! She will be the proud owner of an aqua, structured shoulder, sequin dress from the Fall 2010 APART style collection. She also won an FSL Cosmetics set and a gift box filled with cheese and cheese accessories courtesy of Cabot Creamery.

 If that wasn’t enough, guests were given great (pink) gift bags stuffed with the latest issue of Time Out New York, Gap’s Do the Red Thing bracelets and Johnson’s Baby Oil products. I got a purple and green turquoise APART cover up. I can’t wait to wear it to the beach this weekend.

Of course, one of the most crucial elements of any event is the guests. As we know from her tweets, Kitty worked tirelessly to compile a list of hard-working bloggers. It was so great to meet some new people (Demetria Irwin, Beauty and the Feast, The F$%k it List, The Obsessionista, and Fit for Fashion), put faces to Twitter handles we’ve been following (Arie Rich of KMPBlog, TheFabChick, FashionClimax), and to catch up with old blogging friends (Temple of Glam, OMO Writes, John Simon Daily).

Congratulations to Kitty on a successful event. There were so many wonderful and inspiring bloggers in that room and I was so happy to be included.
