Design My Top 7

My Top 7: Canadian Design Bloggers Meet-Up

1. Hanging out with my blogger friends… some I haven’t seen in a while, others I spent the whole day with on Friday

2. The food! I have never been to Brassaii for dinner, but the food they were serving us makes me want to make a reservation asap! Deep fried oysters, chicken wings, mini burgers, and truffle pops were just some of the glorious things on the menu…

3.Hearing Coco + Kelley founder, Cassandra LaValle, speak on how she got her start in blogging. She had some great take-homes messages including; take a break if you need one, it’s better to not post than to post something you are not 100% in love with, and turn off your flash when you take pictures!

4. Surprise!! Brian Gluckstein makes an appearance! Who knew?

5. The prizes… A $1000 Ikea Gift Card, Delta Faucets, an iPad, and subscriptions to House & Home mag were just some of the wonderful things up for grabs… and I didn’t win any of it!

6. Meeting and chatting with some fabulously talented ladies!  I have been a reader of their blogs, but just have not met them in person…

7. The generous swag bag provided by the sponsors! Everything from a muffin pan from Ikea, to the new Cottonelle toilet paper roll holder designed by Jonathan Adler. Loooove!

I just want to say thank you to all the ladies who made my night! I never would have thought so many of you read my little blog, but to hear you say “Oh I read your blog!” was truly an inspiring moment.

Thanks again to VieDaniella for putting it all together, and the amazing speakers, Cassandra LaValle from Coco+Kelly, Cameron McNeil & Lisa Murphy from House & Home, and Brian Gluckstein, for taking the time to come speak.

For the full rundown of pictures, and an awesome video, head on over to the Canadian Design Blogger’s Meet-up Blog.

So…. who had so much fun? What was the highlight of your night?
