Hi, everyone!

I’ve been away for the past three weeks due to a Theme update that took forever!

But here I am again ready to tell you about the Style Collective Sister Meetup and the launch of its founder, Annie Spano first podcast: Becoming Fearless.

One of the best things I’ve done since I started blogging was to join the Style Collective Blogger Community.

Style Collective was founded by Annie Spano, a real GirlBoss and business entrepreneur who decided to create a real online sisterhood to help, support and empower other bloggers. Annie is an extraordinary human being with excellent leadership skills, strong values and a genuine passion for empowering & motivating other women.

On May 9th, Style Collective Sisters from the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale area finally met in person to celebrate and listen to Annie’s podcast. The meet up was impeccably organized by Jess Undorfer, who also helped other Style Collective sisters to plan their local parties in their cities.

The event was at one of my favorite locations: Yaku by La Mar at The Mandarin Oriental Miami. The appetizers served by Chef Diego Oka were delicious and beautifully presented. The Mandarin Oriental Miami has one of the most beautiful views of the city skyline and Biscayne Bay, especially at Sunset time. It is also an excellent choice to go to Yaku by La Mar for Sunday Brunch.

I enjoyed this party immensely since I had the opportunity to meet other bloggers, talk about fashion, life and career challenges, among many other things. I also saw how everyone is willing to support each other because that is what this community is all about.

As a super organizer, Jess arranged with Chanel Beauty to introduced to us the latest skincare products, fragrances and makeup that will be available in the summer. I enjoyed having a makeup a touch up by one of Chanel’s beauty managers while she explained the benefits and properties of each product. They gave us a sample bag with some of them, which I am currently enjoying. I also received a service list with an invitation to book a complimentary session at the Chanel booth in Neiman Marcus, Merrick Park.

Jess also put together personalized goodie bags with gifts from a variety of local Miami vendors.

Miami Gorgeous Beauty: a self-tanning mousse, and two sunblock sticks. The three products are 100% Natural made with Organic Coconut & Argan Oils, Paraben, and Gluten Free.

Emporium: a super cute bracelet with the phrase “La Vita e Bella” engraved.

Louise & Eleanor: a round pink coin purse by Louise & Eleanor, which I’m loving, especially after learning that they make a donation for every purchase to a woman’s non-profit.

We all received the latest issue of MIAMI Magazine, that will also feature our party in the upcoming months.

Macarons by Janette and Co, a delicious French Bakery with two locations in Miracle Mile and Sunset Drive.

Last but not least: we listen to Annie’s Podcast together, and I have to tell you that is quite an inspiring story for women who want to succeed supporting and empowering others. When you listen to her, you feel her authenticity, her values, and her passion for supporting every woman entrepreneur.

I invite you all to join Style Collective today to be part of a true sisterhood of amazing women.
