Event Recap: Femology Detroit Blogger Bash at Grand Circus!

Event Recap: Femology Detroit Blogger Bash at Grand Circus!

Last Sunday I went to event called “Blogger Bash” it was the first of it kind by Femology Detroit .  I heard all about this event through the last event I went to … remember the yoga event. This was the networking event for the season I had to be there.  fullsizeoutput_21f4 I have to be honest tho I was super nervous about going to this event because I am socially awkward. I felt like a little girl again going to new school.  Scared to put myself out there however The next thing I know I was talking and introducing myself to everyone.

Femology Detroit is a modern business workspace created for women to interact, work, and thrive! founded by Meagan Ward.. shout out to you sis !

 This event took place at the Grand Circus. Soon as I walked on the floor I was in heaven.  Balloons, cotton candy, and vendors were everywhere. It was so LIT !  When first walked in I made my attention at the table filled with fruits, cupcakes, and cakes and so many other decadent treats to eat. Then there were cotton candy and yummy drinks.  Special Shout to Balloon Haus that had a beautiful  display of blue, lavender, and pink balloons. It was a highlight. My favorite in my opinion was the DJ. She was playing some of the latest hits. When Ciara’s song Level Up came on I had to dance! 

Soon it was time for panels.  The panels consist of Detroit’s top bloggers, Youtubers, and influencers. They gave some real tea on how to level up on our consistency, engaging with out followers, and how to make sure we get all our coins in this  business. This event was what a new blogger, such as myself needed.  Networking was key at this event. I love the fact that dived in there and made some connects. SO sis be on the look I will be sending out some emails to get together for lunch in the futue .  To be honest I was stun to see how big our community is. To see so many women try to come up in their careers is awesome. Thank you Femology for that !

Dreaming of being a panelist at the next Blogger Bash 

 

My Outfit deets…

I knew I was going to be at this event. However I was in bit of a dilemma. I was broke. I had no money. So this what I did.. I shop the clearance rack at  Target and found this $6 skirt. Then I shop my closet. You may have seen this off the shoulder top before, however I used it again. It fit perfectly with this skirt. Added a pop of color to my toes and feet with the pink block heel. It was perfect.  Awesome part of it all that I match the event ballon colors at the event.  Blue, Lavender, and pink Wow !

Hey !!Caitlin & Danielle

Back to the story.  Now I not going to lie I was bit nervous when it comes to eventing. I think I made eventing up. I define eventing as the action of going to events. Yes so I was nervous. I always get a little anxious before the event because you already know I want everyone to like me! So I lay the pressure on hard. Anywho, Caitlin and Danielle were super nice host. They help me take some pictures of myself. I just love that they came to Detroit just to hang out with a small blog community . Also getting a chance to meet other bloggers, and influencers in Detroit is so awesome to me.  I just felt so great to be in room with some many talented  women , and men !  It open my eyes how important it is to network and also to just to have a good time.

 

The Peterboro….

FashionLayn Hangs out with Femology Detroit & LuluLemon

Who  knew that simple  breathing, body posture, and meditation can bring you so much good feelings to your life. Yoga is that special thing I need in my life to help me heal.  Long story short. I use to do yoga once week for a few months when I first started working downtown. I would take my yoga class during the lunch time since it was free. Wellness is a big thing where I work at. The perks of my job. Any who I switched to a new position, got really busy and yoga was not apart of my life anymore. SAD !

fullsizeoutput_1df5

So last week Wednesday I was invited to this women only self care event hosted by Femology Detroit and LuluLemon:  Self Love Yoga. It took place right after work for me and it was hosted at Lululemon Detroit on Woodward Ave.  Sidenote: Femology Detroit is a modern business workspace created for women to interact, work, and thrive! founded by Meagan Ward.. shout out to you sis ! Back to the story:    I believe this was calling from GOD.. I am actually so grateful that I attend because I needed to be surrounded by other women and learn how to get center again.  I have been unbalanced for awhile now. So there you have it. When I first arrive I was really nervous because I have been out the yoga game for awhile. And I have bad habit of holding my breath around people… scared that I breathing to hard. Yea… I really got a lot of hang ups. Sidenote:  the yoga teachers were Adria and Rachel. They were some of the world nicest yoga instructor ever.  Please follow them on IG — Social accounts linked below ! 

Anywho I got the hang of it again.  I let go of everything and let my body melt right into my mat. I focused on my breathing. Took full breaths and let my heart and my other organs just relax. I was healing myself ! As women we put so much into other things ! We are planning launch party, managing our careers, and take care of our children…… we forget to take care of ourselves.  So use some of that free time and take care of yourself. If it not yoga just take a few minutes and be silent and just rest.  That is mediation. Sit and and bring your focus back to your breath.
