Whew, I have FINALLY recovered from the Pretty As A Pin Up presented by Sensa Weight Loss networking event held on May 24th!
This invite only bloggers networking event was quite the talk of the town, and we are so gratefully to everyone that came and those that sponsored the event! Everyone had a fabulous time, and Maegan of Chronically Distracted and I are already talking about what we can do next.

During the evening, local lifestyle, gossip, and “mommy” bloggers were welcomed to Fifty Barrels Winery Group‘s private barrel room. Retro music filled the space, and all of the attendees were treated to plenty of food, wine, and conversation as the evening went on.

Since it was on a Thursday evening, we were able to take part in Fifty Barrels’ $4 glasses throughout the evening. Quite the deal considering some of the wines are $8 a glass the rest of the week. *happy bloggers indeed*
The lovely ladies of Sensa Weight Loss. Thank you for sponsoring our event!
The promotional team for Pretty As A Pin Up’s title sponsor, Sensa Weight Loss even made an appearance and enjoyed the party! Yes you can eat at party as part of the Sensa Weight Loss regimen. Even the cup cakes.

Food for the evening was provided for by Chronically Distracted and Busy Bee Blogger. The favorite food of the night were the Cook N Shoupe gluten free BBQ sauces. Bloggers were putting it on everything from pulled pork sandwiched to sliced veggies. This was especially exciting considering some of the bloggers are gluten free! Yum.
Attendees were also able to sample Peep Show firming body lotion from Venue Sponsor The Body Bartender. Their “body products for the pin-up girl in you” are paraben free and smell delicious. I overheard the winemaker (Brian) from Fifty Barrels say “It smells like Hawaii”. It must have been a hit as most of the bottle was gone by the time we were packing up.
During the event, attendees were asked to make a donation to the Semper Fi Fund, a nonprofit set up to provide immediate financial support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. We were able to raise $70 for the organization.
No networking event is complete without a gift bag to take home at the end of the night. And might I say, wow, our sponsors really came through for us on these.
Title sponsor Sensa Weight Loss provided a one month starter kit for all attendees. This included month one sprinkles, three Sensa Quench drink mixes, and two bags of chews.

Sassy Lemonade also donated a custom designed necklace for our best dressed blogger, Tracy from A Beautiful Mess.
Again, we want to thank everyone who attended, tweeted photos, and all of our sponsors for making this quite the event. Maegan and I look forward to doing our next event and cannot wait for it to happen.
xoxo – Bee
