Do you want to know the best part of blogging? Being social! On Saturday, I attended the November Meet-Up with my tri-state blogger friends at East of 8th in NYC. Monica of Jersey Girl, Texan Heart is kind enough to plan these meet-ups every few months for us and it's so much fun to get to see these lovely ladies in person.

It may seem like all fun, but blogging is a tough job. You have to be really passionate to keep going! There is so much that goes into it, but the reward is so much greater! It's events like this that make it all worth it. And I always learn something new when we get together! Each of us are constantly evolving and improving. Who better to learn from than your friends?

I'm sure you're wondering what I wore! So what do you wear to hang out with a bunch of fabulous fashionistas? Well, I went for preppy comfort. Commuting into the city from NJ takes a lot out of you, so comfort was definitely key for me.

If you haven't noticed, I have been completely obsessed with sweater pullovers and loose curls this season. So of course I had to rock those styles!

The details- I just love the 'popcorn' stiching on this sweater. It adds lovely texture to it and makes it more interesting. I'm obsessed with this black and white gingham print- it's so chic!

Happy Friday, friends! Well, today isn't just any Friday. It's the premiere day of Mockingjay Part 1! I'm into The Hunger Games trilogy, so I'm pretty psyched that it's finally here! Naturally, I just had to turn this Friday Favorites into a Hunger Games edition.

So, how do you express your uncontainable excitement for this premiere while still being stylish? A secret of mine is to shop Etsy. This is the absolute best place to get one-of-a-kind products for yourself or to give as gifts. And there are so many talented Etsy shop owners that make fabulous Hunger Games inspired jewelry! I'm all about supporting small businesses and I love getting unique pieces to add to my wardrobe.

Here's 5 Things Every 'Hunger Games' Enthusiast Needs!
