This weekend I had the privilege of meeting some pretty awesome bloggers at a Houston blogger meet-up! We met at Eloise Nichols for brunch Saturday and couldn’t have been any cuter! We have all been instagram friends for a while, and finally found a weekend we could all meet in person. This has also inspired me to start a new little series I would like to call – Blogging 101. This is for moi, as a new blogger, to keep y’all updated with my progress and new information I find along the way.

It was so refreshing to meet other people who have the same interests as you! As a new blogger, I still am figuring a lot of things out. Of course, I know what I like to blog about, but sometimes it can be hard to choose an exact topic. For me, it seems that I really only like to write about my outfit (most of the time), but I know all you (my wonderful readers) need a little more push than that! 😉 We all agreed that we struggle with this, but sometimes a new idea or story can become second nature for us.

It has been so much fun giving my own little perspective of the world to other people. Now, whenever I see my friends, they know exactly what my latest news is because they have read my blog that week! You may think it takes the fun out of our visit, but it always spirals into a new conversation about blogging!

I was also so excited to meet other bloggers because I am so new to the industry! However, I seem to forget that this is a new industry. It is over saturated and I knew that this wasn’t going to be a cake walk going into this, but I am truly passionate about it. Passion also motivates me to work even harder. This weekend was great to meet all of these amazing women and they have helped to inspire me to keep it up! Blogging has lead me to meet some really great new friends and mentors and I am very thankful for this experience!

Kristen, or known by her friend's as "Byrdie," is an ambitious twenty-something currently living in Houston, TX. Before pursuing her Master's, she graduated from Texas Christian University with a Fashion Merchandising Degree. Since graduating she has had wonderful opportunities with Stanley Korshak, Academy Sports + Outdoors, and Francesca's. Her love of Fashion couples with her desire to help other's in need -- whether it's Fashion advice, or just a friend that needs help, she is always willing to lend a hand to others. In her spare time, she can most likely be found at any place that serves Mexican food, walking her maltese pups, or volunteering at the Houston Junior League. While she never thought writing was her "thing," she was encouraged to start writing her own blog when she interned for a blogger while at TCU. Kristen has a lot of things to say, and wants to spread her love of Fashion to friends and followers everywhere!
