Our First MABB Meetup on 11/11/12!

Pam from Pammy Blogs Beauty, Me, Ashley Elizabeth from Ashley Elizabeth's Beauty Blog, and Harri from Trailer Hood Chic

Hey everyone! I just wanted to fill you in on the super fun time I had at the first Metro Atlanta Beauty Bloggers meetup this Sunday! If you're unfamiliar with MABB, it's a focused beauty blogger group that I started back in June to be able to connect with some like-minded local beauties! You've probably seen our Weekly (now Bi-Weekly) Beauty Questions posted on my blog over the last few months. So far we have 7 members and I'm just thrilled with the new friendships that I've been able to make!

Unfortunately, three of our girls were unable to attend due to illness, but Harri from Trailer Hood Chic, Pam from Pammy Blogs Beauty, Ashley Elizabeth from Ashley Elizabeth's Beauty Blog, and I were able to make it out! 

We met at El Porton, which is a fun Mexican restaurant out in Roswell.. the mariachi band was totally playing 'Sweet Home Alabama' when Harri and I got there! It was hilarious! We all liked the food and atmosphere, so we feel like that will most likely be our new meetup spot.

After introductions and conducting some much necessary group business, we got to talk blogs and do an epic beauty swap! Everyone was super sweet and it was so nice to be able to hang out with such smart, savvy women and have a "normal" conversation about blogging! Sometimes it can feel like sizing up your competition when you sit down with other bloggers, but these ladies were just amazing. I learned a lot from them and look forward to picking their brains again at future meetups!

For our beauty swap, we all brought beauty products that were getting no love in our stashes. We all went home with some new goodies to try, and we're going to donate the huge pile that remains to a local women's shelter after Thanksgiving. It is definitely important for all of us to give back to our community, and we thought this would be a fun way to do it while still staying true to our beauty roots!

I'll be sure to keep you updated when we drop our goodies off at the women's shelter! I'm definitely looking forward to playing Santa for a day and surprising them with a huge pile of makeup!

I'm already looking forward to our next meetup in March.. if it were practical, I'd love to have a monthly meetup! Maybe one day... :)
