Connecticut Blogger Collective Glam 1yr Anniversary Party

img_3359Happy 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;

@place2bect for the tasty meal and yummy drinks

@onehope for their delicious wine

@thewriteboard for hand lettering our personalized anniversary keepsake totes
