Back in front of the camera at The Bloggers Block

It's really where I belong. That's how I feel about being in front of the camera… with microphone in hand. It is - after all - what I did for 12+ years as a career.

The Bloggers Block has afforded me that. Thank you, Dayana Brown, the CEO and founder of the organization that holds quarterly events to introduce bloggers to brands and brands to bloggers with an emphasis on fashion, beauty and lifestyle. I attended their first event at O Lounge in Fort Lauderdale last November and hosted their second event in February at Segafredo in Miami, where I was able to interview one of the brands, Mamahuhu, who makes leather and suede bags and shoes. Read about my experience here.

I'm excited to again interview new brands tonight (May 23) back at O Lounge. I am a storyteller at heart and am so glad to be able to share the story of these new-to-the-market designers and brands with you. 

The event will include a contest with the Fashom app which currently launched, giving you an opportunity to share your fashion style with others.

You'll also enjoy live music, food, drinks and the return of the Trendy Truck, the first fashion boutique on wheels in South Florida. It's owned by a mother-daughter team who have great fashion sense and bring in "trendy" clothing and accessories from Los Angeles and New York to us. There's even a dressing room inside. I've got pictures and write about my fabulous finds here.

You can find out more about The Bloggers Block and up-and-coming brands and designers by joining me and my fellow fashionista bloggers - April of April Golightly, Afroza of Chic Stylista and Alaina of Sky Style Couture Life who will also be selling jewelry from the line Chloe & Isabel. The event is tonight from 6 to 11 p.m. at O Lounge at 333 E. Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. You can get your ticket here and use the promo code BRANDS523 for a $5 off discount. See you there!
