Behind the Scenes: SBS Brunch Gift Bag

(Body butter, S.O.A.P. DC // Necklace, BRIGHTHOUSE BAUBLES //Bracelet, JAMI
Notebook, WAITING ON MARTHA // Undies, COSABELLA // Room spray, W HOTELS
Hair serum, OSCAR BLANDI)

I've gotten lots of questions and comments about the amazing gift bags that we received at the Southern Blog Society Brunch over the weekend. So I decided to share photos of (some) of the great gifts from the companies who sponsored our event. I say "some" because a few of the pieces are going to be showing up soon in style posts! Cathy and Jessica did the most amazing job getting a variety of companies to sponsor items for our bag. Some companies were new to me (like Jami, a new favorite!) but some were old favorites (like C. Wonder). This is honestly just a snippet of what was in our bags - some other companies include Vineyard Vines, Paige Denim (style post coming soon!), Levi's, Lulu's, BB Dakota, and lots more!

(Clinton Kelly's OH NOT SHE DIDN'T c/o Macy's // Nail bracelet, HELLO BEAUTIFUL
Initial bangle, C. WONDER // Crown, FLOWER CROWN SOCIETY // Candle, ARCHIPELAGO // Aveda candle, VAN MICHAEL SALON)

(The best scent EVER!)


(Tote, ALTERNATIVE APPAREL (tassels/scarf are my own) // Sneakers, BUCKETFEET)

(Necklace, SOLE SOCIETY // Primer, concealer, pore balm, mascara, BENEFIT
Eyeliner, MIRABELLA // Blush stick and eyeshadow, CARGO)


(Scarf, AMERICAN EAGLE // Pouch, ISLAND COMPANY // Phone case, JAGGER EDGE // Sunnies, FANTAS-EYES)

I wanted to share this with y'all today because a.) these items made for some really pretty photo ops, b.) the ladies of SBS deserve continued praise for all their hard work putting this event together and c.) I hope to introduce you to some new companies that you may not know about!

And thank you a million times over for the amazing response to this post that I wrote yesterday. I can't tell you how reassuring it is to know that there are bloggers out there who have similar experiences, but choose to not let it steal your joy. Thank you. xo

I am digging your amazing swag bag. Especially swooning over the AE scarf, the slip on sneaks and the Island Company pouch.
