Women that brunch together stay together
"Women are our most miraculous muse, an enchanted intangibility that encourages all art."_ CeeLo Green
Women are art, we are creative, we are diverse, and we withstand the test of time. I was honored to be invited to a fabulous event called Gals That Brunch. I had the opportunity to meet such powerful and diverse women from all around the city of Chicago, some, even from different states. Not only is it a great way to meet women, especially if you're new to Chicago, but it's a great way to find other liked minded, awesome people that you'd want to befriend down the line.
I'm not going to lie, I was quite nervous, because for the first time I was attending an event solo. Normally, I have a comfort zone, and going someplace alone, without a friend, is quite scary to me. I arrived and not only were the facilitators, Jen and Elizabeth, super friendly but they also made sure I was comfortable. I had a great mind set coming into this event, strictly because drinks, socializing, and meeting interesting people, what could be bad about that? However, that tinge of insecurity always plays in the back of your mind, thinking: what if no one talks to me and I'm by myself?
Not only did I find such amazing women to talk to but I found that everyone at this event were super friendly and eager to speak with everyone there. I met women from marketing, to fitness, to engineers, and we all talked about our experiences in our careers and how us, as women, need to empower each other more.
I also learned more about this event, it's not strictly central, but it's an international event that brings women in the community together to socialize, meet new friends, and of course BRUNCH!
The event took place at ACE Bounce and it was the perfect little set up for an event. We had unlimited mimosas, bloody marys, and little brunch items that definitely satisfied the taste buds. There was even a moment where we got to play ping pong together to get rid of any jitters, allowing everyone to socialize and laugh together (I realized I am awful at ping pong, sorry to my team mates).
Overall, it was such a wonderful experience and I recommend everyone going to this event! The next event, in Chicago, will be August 11th, at Old Grounds Social, starting at 11! Tickets sell fast so I suggest you take a look and get yours.
Now, for my out of state followers I am linking the website below so you can find the next event in your state!

Passion for Pink
Whenever you go to an event you want to make sure your outfit describes your personality. I had a harder time picking what to wear. I literally changed outfits several times. However, finally I decided on a bright pink and white dress, from the lovely Victoria Beckham line. Not only is this dress super sophisticated, it reminds me of something people would have worn for the royal wedding, but it's fun as well. I felt like a total Barbie walking in my light weight dress, pink pumps, and square designed Kate Spade purse. This dress is perfect for other events as well, you can take this for weddings, banquets, or even a sophisticated night out with the girls at a rooftop bar!
Here is the link to the dress I found someone selling it on PoshMark.
Thanks so much for reading guys! I hope you all have a fantastic Monday, remember, you are beautiful don't forget to smile! Until next time.
