On Thursday, Leigh and I headed to Memphis to host our first Blogger Xchange event in the city! I am so happy that we have expanded to West TN. We hosted the event at Old Dominick Distillery which is in the heart of downtown. Guests were able to not only enjoy signature cocktails - which were delicious - they also toured the distillery and learned about its history. The three drinks for the evening were Elderflower Sour, Beach Within Reach, and Summer Smash.
Our Memphis panelists did an excellent job sharing their story with all of the guests. On our panel we had Paris Chanel who is a very talented makeup artist, YouTuber, and microblogger; Holly who is a total boss babe and is the writer behind I Love Memphis Blog; and Bianca who is the blogger behind Curvaceously Bee. They were so candid about their journey and offered great tips for everyone.
It wouldn't be a Blogger Xchange event with out some swag, right? Dollar General sponsored our gift bags and provided Dove and Caress body wash. Code Word Hats gifted everyone with 901 hats, Buff City Soap which is local to the Memphis area sponsored hand made bath bombs and soaps which smell ah-mazing!
A huge thank you goes out to Ike of Angie & Ike Photography for capturing the night so perfectly. If you are in the Memphis area, I highly recommend working with them. I cannot wait for the next Memphis event. Be sure to follow Blogger Xchange on Instagram to stay in the loop on all of our Nashville, Minneapolis, and Memphis events.
