Our Morning Mixer Chicago Event

Morning Mixer

We were compensated for our event, but the opinions expressed are our own.

As you may remember, Kristin and I were in Chicago last weekend together having a blast! While there, we hosted a Morning Mixer event along with our good friends and bloggy buds, Kristin and Betsy from The Little Style File.

Morning Mixer

The event was sponsored by both Kashi and the Hyatt Regency in Chicago and brought together about 50 of our favorite bloggers, social media gurus, and supporters to mingle and network.  We were thrilled for guests to sample Kashi products including Kashi Heart to Heart® Nutty Chia Flax Barley & Oat Cereal, Berry Lemonade with Chia Chewy Granola Bars (my personal new favorite granola bar!) and Hummus Crisps.

The gorgeous Hyatt Regency also passed some delicious breakfast items and even had an adorable mimosa bar set up with fun flavors. Personally, I loved sipping on a grapefruit mimosa with blood oranges.  Yum!

Most importantly the event was a great morning of bringing together friends for a meeting of the minds. We love getting bloggers together and felt so inspired by our exchanges with everyone.

Of course, we couldn’t let our peeps walk away empty handed.  In addition to taking home each of the great Kashi products, our attendees received a swag bag full of fabulous goodies.  The adorable tote bags were from Land’s End and included: reusable snack bags from Itzy Ritzy, make-up from Mark, Murad’s Rapid Collagen Infusion, a selection of Tiesta Tea, a yo-yo from Play, London Times gift certificates, journals from Minted, and handmade hair pins from Ahndea May.

London Times also sent us all these adorable dresses to wear on the big day. Aren’t they just so cute and perfect for summer?! Also, a huge thanks goes to our photographer Gina Cristine Photography.  She did an awesome job and you can check out more of the pics here!

Big hugs and thanks to everyone who attended our mixer! We can’t wait to get going on the next one!

    That mimosa bar looks amazing! I love Kashi– the granola is so good with yogurt.
