Charleston Black Girl Bloggers Brunch 

Hey y’all! I’ve been trying to wait a little while on posting about this event because I was missing a key element: pictures. A photographer was supposed to come and shoot, but never showed and I didn’t have anyone to run my social media or take pictures with my phone. I was so caught up in what was going on that I didn’t really think to take more pictures. 

My bad.


We had such a wonderful time on May 28th at Liberty Tap Room! It was disappointing that people who’d RSVPd didn’t show up or that the photographer didn’t show up or that I didn’t have extra help, but I’m so grateful to those women who thought it not robbery to come out and fellowship and talk about how we can make an impact in Charleston.

My goal for #CBGBB was to have black girl bloggers and entrepreneurs come together on a monthly basis to network and to hopefully learn something new, but I’ve realized that there’s the opportunity for so much more. I’m going to get more info prepared for our next event, but we’ve decided against meeting monthly. Just know that we’re going to make a major impact not just with blogging, but with business and the community as a whole.

I’d like so much to thank our product sponsors: Charleston Candle Co, GlōGirl Cosmetics, Lone Body Care, Dandy Boutique, and It Works distributor Keneshea Davenport. Their wonderful products were a hit with my guests!

 I’d also love to thank Mac&Murphy, The Blue Root, and The Tiny Tassel for providing awesome door prizes for 4 lucky guests!

Thank y’all again so much for not hesitating to help when I asked! Thank you for believing in my vision and for wanting to do something with this amazing group of black women! I also have to thank Ireana of XOXO, I. Joelle for speaking on the importance of creating our own opportunities and being our own cheerleaders. She really gave much needed words of wisdom and advice!


​​

 I hope y’all are following Ireana, as she’ll be hosting a blogging workshop later on this year with her brand, Flourish Blog Workshops. She’ll have more time to impart her wisdom to aspiring and current bloggers and influencers. We’re of the belief that we’ve got to make our own opportunities and not wait on any one to do it for us. From the photo shoot with The Tiny Tassel and Aneris Photography to #CBGBB to Flourish Blog Workshops–we’re making it known that we’re more than capable of holding and creating our own.

I wish I had more pictures to share amazing afternoon we had! I wanted to show off the sisterhood, the amazing door prizes, the lovely set up but I can’t. What I can share are some of the Instagram pics shared by my guests.


Feel free to follow Charleston Black Girl Bloggers Brunch on Instagram and follow the amazing guests and product and door prize sponsors as well! Check out their blogs and businesses and don’t be afraid of collaboration–it’s encouraged! It’s all about community over competition.


Thank you so much to everyone who came through like they said they would. Thank you to NaShonda Hunter who did what she didn’t have to do and without her this might not have been pulled off successfully. Thank you Liberty Taproom for providing us with such a wonderful space. Thank you. Thank You. THANK YOU!
