Attending my first Workshop + some gorgeous photos!

Attending the Snap! Workshop in LA I have exciting news ! I launched my blog, The Coffee Date on Thursday and I’ve been getting around 300 views a day! This is huge as Dianasadventures doesn’t get anywhere near that even though I have 600+ wonderful subscribers 🙂 You guys all know how much I love to share blogging tips + photoshop tips so if you want some more of that, don’t forget to subscribe to my new blog http://www.thecoffeedate.com and follow me on there. Anyway, back to the main article which is what you guys are hopefully here for! haha, I was able to attend my first workshop on Saturday in LA and it was all about Instagram! The workshop was hosted by thebrandgals.com and taught us tricks and tips to utilize Instagram – though I’m not very active on Instagram and don’t consider it part of my social media strategy. The venue was amazing, and the workshop lasted from 11 – 4 PM. We were fed 3x, which is why this post is filled with so much food! I have to …

Pool Side Pretty Recap , Orange County

#PoolSide Pretty Event Recap!  This weekend, I was lucky enough to be invited to attend Poolside Pretty event! It was hosted by my former boss, Donna owner of Serene Sky + Cheryl from Skinny on Beauty . I’m sure there will be some posts from other bloggers about the event, but I just love love love behind the scenes posts because our lives are not all as glamorous (not saying mine is, in general) as other people think it is + you rarely see photos that weren’t meant to be posted on certain blogs… but since I was in charge of taking photos, I took a bunch of photos! Haha! So, Lindsey helped me take photos and we kept each other company while setting up before the event. Seriously, Lindsey is just the sweetest & amazing, so I hired her to help manage my blog (more on that later!). I interned with Lindsey last year, and always see her at events so it’s always fun to have a familiar face 🙂 ❤ Lindsey, if you’re reading this – I love you! haha Did I …

OCFW – Sugar Rush

O.C. Fashion Week: Sugar Rush Thanks to Donna, my old boss, I was able to attend OC Fashion Week with Lindsey! We were both excited and didn’t know what to wear and regrettably, I dressed way too casual for the event. Since it was my first time going to a show, I didn’t know what to expect! But, luckily Lindsey had gone to shows before so that made me feel better. Of course it wasn’t as glamorous as NYFW, but hey.. it’s a start right? We also were introduced to Donna’s new intern, Yu and we all had such a fun time taking photos after the event. Forgive me, my little point + shoot did not hold up to all the action that was happening! Most photos came out too blurry so I didn’t think to put them on the blog. The event was held in Newport Beach. So, I had my tutoring session, ate dinner with Lindsey at Yardhouse, and headed over. We didn’t know where to park and when we pulled up the guy asked …
