Happy Anniversary Connecticut Bloggers Collective!!!! On Monday night, 20 plus Connecticut Blogger Babes was invited to celebrate with the Founder, Nonee Ngazimbi at the first year anniversary celebration in Hartford. Nonee recognized that Connecticut was missing a blogging community and she did something about it. Now the Connecticut Bloggers Collective has around 2000 followers on Instagram and 275 members on Facebook.
Like many when I moved to Connecticut, I searched for a bloggers group and found Connecticut Bloggers. I joined that group and only managed to attend 2-3 of their events. Then as time passed Connecticut Bloggers Collective popped up and cousin (Ilse with Live Learn & Luxe It Blog) and I jumped on that joining the group right away. What Nonee has done is brought together a diverse group of girls that was hungry and passionate for this community, The Blogging Lifestyle.
It’s always nice to get together and chat in person with the girls and support each other. Women Supporting Women is something that Nonee has managed to make sure we all stand by, Intergity is very important and I must say we have a great group of women and at the party you can see that we all really follow that way of living.
As usual Nonee did a great job at getting fantastic sponsors for the 1yr Anniversary Celebration. Let me tell you who all was there;
Such a beautiful day it was yesterday here in Danbury, Connecticut that Johnny and I decided to meet up at Terra Of Danbury for what you asked, Happy Hour, of course! Got a chance to talk with one of my girls at Hotel Zero Degrees about some upcoming things we’re working on. So once I got business out the way let the drinking begin!
Both Hotel Zero Degrees and Terra of Danbury restaurant are two of my favorites spots here in Danbury. Normally, I only enjoy my time in New York but these two spots are stylish, it’s bright and very glam without being gaudy…so ME!
Both Johnny and I needed to get some ME TIME in because we never really have time together to just let our hair down. It’s always WORK Work Work Work Work Work. We have been really good at keeping everything separate, Friendship, Business and Mentor-ship. So today it was nice to just enjoy each other company. Randy met us after he wrapped up at work so he also managed to make it before Happy Hour was over.
My drink during Happy Hour was the Lavender Spa Lemonade until the bartender said they were out of the Lavender so we ended up getting a bottle of red wine. Of course, their Truffle Fries was going to be order followed by their Certified Angus beef carpaccio. We go hard for those two dishes, it’s always going to be ordered.
What a way to end a great evening in Danbury, Connecticut… Terra Of Danbury
