This has certainly been an eventfully summer for O So Chic. We’ve been out mingling, getting to know other bloggers, and meeting the people behind some of our favorite blogs and twitter handles. Last week, we attended Blog Cafe 2.0 where we were lucky enough to meet a few more bloggers, come face to face with readers (so cool!) and catch up with some old blogging friends.
The brainchild of Arie Rich of KMP Blog, Blog Cafe is an annual blogger and reader meet and greet. The event was held at PS 450 lounged in Murray Hill/Kips Bay. The house DJ played a great mix of music as attendees exchanged business cards and twitter handles, posed for pictures, and listened eagerly to see if they were the lucky winners of one of seven gift bags up for raffle. Sadly, Melanie and I were not as lucky as we were during the Kitty Bradshaw Blogiversary Party. It’s okay though, our friend Misha of The Fab Chick took home a Target tote bag filled with beauty products, a book and household appliances, maybe she’ll be inclined to share with us. (Wink, wink).
One of the coolest parts of the night was walking in and seeing the drink menu. There were three specialty cocktails created for the event and one of them was called the O So Chic. It was a sweet concoction make with vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice and cherry juice. I cannot tell you how exciting it was to hear our peers say, “I’m drinking your cocktail.”
Melanie and I forged a few new (blogging) relationships at the event and are already looking forward to Blog Cafe 3.0. Thanks for much for having us Arie!
P.S. I was one of three lucky winners of a $50 gift card from Spa Week Daily, one of the sponsors of Blog Cafe 2.0. What should I use it for? A facial? A body polish? A hot stone massage? There are so many options, I’m getting excited just thinking about it. I cannot wait to luxuriate during Spa Week.
