About 2 weeks ago, I was invited along with a bunch of other local bloggers by Shout PR, to their 'Get In The Mix' event at the OC Mart Mix in Costa Mesa. The Mart Mix has been one of my favorite places since it opened about a year ago, and I am so happy it is finally getting exposure and recognition and so happy it is in my city! Their are great restaurants, stores and an amazing coffee shop and their are all locally owned and operated. Anyways, I was really happy I could get off of work early and head over to be a part of the event!
All the bloggers in attendance got these cute little name tags! I decided since it was a girly event to let boyfriend do his own thing and bring my bestie, Rachel along for the night.
It was fun to mingle and meet all the ladies behind Shout PR and other bloggers. We were served wine or beer from the wine and olive bar, the cheese shop made snacks, and they had goodies from all different sponsors. We were also given raffle tickets to enter to win outfits from BB Dakota, Willow & Clay, Matty M and more! There was even a craft table (don't worry I steered clear, I am just not crafty!) and a photo booth!
Me, my wrinkled shirt and my wine deciding what outfits to put my tickets in for. I went all in for a striped dress, but didnt win!
LuLu's was also on hand to give away prizes for spinning their little gift wheel and I happened to be the winner of the grand prize! Woohoo! I won a $100 gift card to their store and I can't wait to pick out some goodies! My friend also won a super cute purse, it looks like we had some good luck there!
The winning spin!
'Lette was also on hand to sponsor the even with delicious Macarons. I had these the week prior and I think the Earl Grey Tea flavor is still my favorite! And look at this cute tree you can get to serve them on... just too much cuteness. I am going to keep this in mind for future parties or get togethers!
Rachel and I! All in all we had a great time, and got some fun swag bags at the end of the night as well. I love my local community and want to do anything and everything to get the word out about people and places that I love and I love the Mix!
A big thanks to Shout PR for inviting us and everyone for being so gracious and fun!
