Events | North Carolina BLM Girls Holiday Brunch Recap

Hello Beauties!

I pray each of you had a fantastic Christmas!  Recently, I was able to attend a fabulous holiday brunch with BLM Girls here in North Carolina.  BLM, or Bloggers Like Me, is a group originated on Facebook for female bloggers and a great community to share your posts, seek advice and get to know other bloggers like you.  Our brunch was held at the local Raleigh restaurant, Relish Cafe, and included food, laughs and exchanging presents.

Upon arriving at Relish Cafe, we introduced ourselves and discussed our blogs.  Our conversations went from ideal cameras for capturing photos to experiences in planning events to encouraging an attendee who is thinking about beginning her own blog.

Myself & Kandi

Marché & Demetrice

Carmesha & Marquita

Kandi & Shea

After everyone arrived and placed their orders, we exchanged presents in our BLM Secret Santa.  Each person brought a small gift and a bag was passed around with the names of each attendee inside.  The name each person pulled was the gift they received.  Several people were gifted items from one of my favorite drugstore beauty brands, e.l.f.  [See my last e.l.f review here.]




Not long after exchanging gifts, our food arrived.  Since it was still time for brunch, there were an array of items to choose from!  Many of us chose breakfast while others enjoyed burgers and their infamous macaroni and cheese.


After finishing up our meal, we gathered outside to have more photos taken.
