Bloggers in the City

Bloggers in the City
I’m home today packing my overnight bag for a special getaway to San Francisco.When Kim from Northern California Style and I met in San Francisco last September we had such a fantastic time we wanted to do a repeat during the holiday season.

So we planned another get together and this time asked fellow blogger and friend, Heather from StyleMindChic whom I also met in September, to make it a trio.

But we didn’t want to just meet up for lunch and a little shopping. We wanted to go big this time. Lunch, holiday shopping, cocktails, dinner and an overnight stay in a fantastic Union Square hotel.

For the last several weeks, we’ve been planning this trip and now it’s finally happening tomorrow. I am so excited I might not sleep very well tonight.

The best part is Hotel Monaco, a Kimpton property, is sponsoring our stay and has provided us with complimentary rooms of our very own for the night!

I will be back soon with lots of photos and a few stories to share, I am sure. I the meantime, if you feel like following along on our “Bloggers in the City” getaway,  you can find us – Heather, Kim and me – on Instagram!


xo, Adrienne

      I think it’s going to be a blast! I can’t wait for some girl time…and we can talk about blogging as much as we want and won’t bore each other (most of my non-blogging friends get all glaze-y eyed as soon as I say the word “blog”)

      It will be so fun! My friends eyes glaze over when I talk blog too!!

      Would be fun to have you along, too, Hostess! Kim, Heather and I were saying that if this is a hit, we may do it every year in different locations and have more bloggers join in the fun.

      Yes, and long overdue women’s getaway for a couple of us. I can’t even remember the last time I went away with girlfriends!

      It definitely is the best part. It’s a shame you and I live so far away…maybe one day, though, we will meet. Germany is on my short list of places to visit.

    Oh how COOL! SO excited for you gals and can’t wait to see all the pics on IG!

    Sounds like a blast! How cool that the hotel gave you all complimentary rooms…looking forward to the recap of your getaway.

    Before my sister moved to Boise we used to drive up to Orange County with a family friend and our 3 daughters for a shopping day and made it a yearly event. I really miss that. It was so much fun. She is coming to visit soon, so maybe we can plan another trip… I know shopping in Boise is a little limited!

    Have a great time!

      We are very excited and grateful to Kimpton and Hotel Monaco for giving the three of us rooms. Thrilled, actually!
      That sounds like fun. I hope you can restart your tradition with your sister and friends someday soon. Heather, Kim and I hope our getaway turns into an annual event, too.
