The decor is always SO adorable at GBS events. These were provided by one of the sponsors, Minted. 
Good morning friends! As promised, I'm bringing back news from the Go Blog Social Chicago Pop-Up. Saturday was filled with motivational tips and tricks to make the most out of this hobby I call blogging and even included reconnecting with bloggers from Chicago and Kansas City.  From lessons on how to use affiliate marketing to how to stay organized and balanced to learning how to our blogs and the nitty gritty accounting details - not much was left out. Please browse my pictures below to read more details about what I experienced!
Workspace Chicago was the perfect location for a fall event. The exposed brick, dark wood and vintage details were the perfect choice!

If you haven't guessed already, one of the sponsors was Kendra Scott - can you say "hello, cute earrings?!". We also got goodies from Tiny Prints, Lulu*s, Lily and Violet, Hemp and Honey, Share-a-Sale, Quest Bar and Minted.

This is already on my work desk this Monday compliments of Tiny Prints and GBS.
A view of the room before we got started. Stay tuned for a picture of my two KC friends and I in front of the photo wall!
Lovely Bakery provided us with DELICIOUS breakfast treats. They were so good you guys. If you're in Chicago, definitely go check them out!

I loved the packaging of Owen + Alchemy. This was paired with some more yummy breakfast treats from Seven Sundays.

Loved the fun wall in the kitchen/coffee space!

Here is a line up of my schedule for the day including the speakers. My favorites were Farissa, Cait and Danielle. All so different, but had realistic messages for the audience. 
Maritza from Beauty for Bloggers started off the day with some fun hair styles
anyone can do, like this half up half down style.
Cait from Pretty and Fun rocked her presentation and these pants! I got the chance
to chat with her after and she is so down to earth and awesome. It was great getting
to know her personality a little better outside of reading her blog!

Danielle from The Everygirl ended the day about how she and Alaina started and grew their amazing website. It was very inspiring and lovely to see how they strive to support their mission everyday.
Loved seeing Cait and Lauren in Chicago! I met them at GBS in Kansas City back in April and we had such a fun day together. Already missing them!
PS Outfit post coming on Friday! Check back then :)

Had to take some more pictures of the adorable space on my way out.

Loved the vintage details around the space.
That's a wrap! Thanks Workshop Chicago for the awesome space and GBS for coming to Chicago and producing yet another wonderful event!

Don't forget you still have time to enter my cozy fall giveaway! The more entries - the better!
