#BFFGlamGetaway – Hilton Head Island
If you’re tuned into the Blog Fab Fashionistas’ Instagram and/or Twitter feeds, you may have noticed a few pics from me and the BFF’s last weekend as we headed out for a bit of fun in the sun on our first annual #BFFGlamGetaway in fabulous Hilton Head Island, SC. And for the unfortunate ones who saw their social media feeds crash by the flow of pics from us during our getaway let me begin by apologizing on behalf of the ladies for flooding the social media airwaves with all of the snapshots of us having a fabulous time. In our defense we couldn’t help ourselves… I mean, if you were there with us you’d understand how difficult it was to NOT hit the “submit” button; seriously. We had such an amazing time during our 3 day “gal-pal getaway!” The weather was lovely, the accommodations were absolutely gorgeous, and the ladies were ready for another fabulous BFF extravaganza! There is simply too much to cover in one post, so I will save a little for later. But not to worry as I plan on giving you all of the glamtastic details over the coming days. 😀
SPOILER ALERT: There’s a beach involved, a fabulous shopping excursion, a few dining experiences, and plenty of BFF fun!!!
But before I go into all of the details of our exciting excursion let me start off by giving you a few highlights of our fun-filled weekend. On Friday evening me along with my fellow BFF members Kerrie of Virtuous Styls, Lynn of LA Lynn’s Accessory Shoppe, Mari of Beyond Greatness Event Planning, Parker of Everyday Runway 365, Sophia of Soo Soo Tasty, and our special guest of honor Nicole Garner of The Garner Circle PR and The Garner Brand, arrived at our palatial private beach home for the weekend that we affectionately dubbed the BFF Bungalow. This amazing private home featured comfy appointments throughout, a spacious open air floor plan for entertaining, a private pool and Jacuzzi, and panoramic peaks of the Atlantic Ocean from every view. I mean the views were absolutely gorgeous and we were but mere steps away from a private beach!!! But, I’ll get into our weekend accommodations later…
Ok, so Friday night we kicked off our weekend of diva debauchery with a poolside event called NUVO Nights presented by NUVO Sparkling Liqueur. NUVO provided the BFF ladies with sips of their latest flavors Red Velvet Cake and Peach Cobbler. These sassy sips were the perfect complement to our night of relaxation and reflection as we lounged poolside, kicked up our heels, and raised our champagne glasses to toast to a weekend of fabulosity. Now you’ve heard of NUVO, right? Well, unless you’ve just returned from a sabbatical studying snow drifts on the North Pole, you know that NUVO is the preferred sip for celebs alike as well as those who enjoy a more elegant and smooth tasting liqueur. And just as their names suggest, NUVO’s Red Velvet Cake and Peach Cobbler liqueurs taste incredibly like these yummy desserts. They were absolutely delish!!! In fact, we were so smitten by these flavors that we had to have them again during our mini-seminar the following evening. 😛
Ok, so after a fabulous day of shopping during our Diva’s & Discounts (Tanger Takeover) event at Tanger Outlet, we convened back at the BFF Bungalow where Nicole Garner of The Garner Circle PR and The Garner Brand hosted a Cocktails & Conversations event for the ladies. The BFF ladies enjoyed sips of NUVO inspired cocktails while engaging in enriching and candid conversations about Blogger PR 101 with Miss Garner. Awarded with the Top 30 Under 30, Rolling Out Magazine’s Top 25 Women in the City, and High Heels in High Places, Nicole Garner’s agency has worked with such brands as Miller Coors, Lions Gate, Moët, BET, African Pride & Beautiful Textures hair care and a host of others. Nicole presented her Pretty Powerful Workshop which focused on blogging essentials and also covered a wealth of information on topics such “Techniques for driving traffic to your blog” and “Building Brand Relationships” which are featured in Nicole’s much anticipated ebook “10 Things Your Mom NEVER Told You About Being A Female Entrepreneur.” A few key takeaways from the session included a thorough blog analysis for each of the BFF’s, insight on what brands are seeking from blogger partnerships, and key tips for creating and leveraging brand exposure. Now I can’t give you all of the details from the ebook, but let’s just say that this is a definite MUST HAVE for any blog-nistas’ marketing arsenal. When the session concluded we each felt enlightened, well informed and renewed with energy and empowerment.
Thanks to the fabulous Nicole Garner for providing the BFF’s with insightful and invaluable knowledge on becoming successful woman-prenuers. We had an amazing evening! Thanks also to Jesse Mills of NUVO for providing the BFF ladies with a “sneak sip” of NUVO’s wonderful new flavors Red Velvet Cake and Peach Cobbler. They were simply divine!
Be sure to download your FREE copy of Nicole Garner’s fab ebook 10 Things Your Mom NEVER Told You About Being A Female Entrepreneur on your iOS device. Oh, and don’t forget to toast to fabulousness and friends with a glass of Sparkling NUVO!
Stayed tuned as I give you an exclusive tour of the BFF Bungalow and tell you how BFF’s Mari & Kerrie surprised the ladies with several amazing gifts that set the tone for a fabulous weekend of fun.
