Have you ever wanted to meet fellow fashion and beauty bloggers in your area? For me, that’s one of the most exciting things about being a blogger. This past weekend I got to meet several amazing ladies at my first Style Collective (SC) meetup to celebrate the launch of SC founder Annie Spano’s podcast, Becoming Fearless. Like Style Collective, the podcast is all about finding your authentic self and living your values to become the person you were meant to be. I love how Annie gets personal in the podcast and shares what motivated her to start Style Collective, and highly recommend listening if you’re feeling burnt out from your job.
To celebrate the podcast launch, I hosted an #SCMeetup in my area for Connecticut bloggers at one of my favorite blogger-friendly restaurants – Bartaco. Check out the bloggers who attended on Instagram: Nonee at @noneesworld; Lauren at @rosesandrainboots; Amanda at @5feetoffashion; Sandra at @therusticlife; Amanda at @_amandabella; Rosa at @rmdiana4.
Special thanks to Bartaco for generously sponsoring the event with yummy tacos and drinks. See the highlights below!

#bartacosecret Every month, bartaco has a special off-the-menu item. These delicious soft-shell crab tacos are the secret menu item for the month of May. They’re moderately spicy and very addicting. Hurry and try them before they’re gone!

Prior to the tacos, we were served my bartaco favorites – chips with salsa verde and guacamole, and two summer cocktails: the Oaxaca Spritz and the Anchojito.
One of my favorite things to eat in the summer is gazpacho and this one was so flavorful and refreshing. It was served alongside three lettuce wraps – fried oysters, ahi tuna, and cauliflower. You don’t need to be on a low carb diet to love this entree.
How cute is this photo?!
Nonee captured the perfect shot. The only thing better than this adorable presentation was actually eating the churros with chocolate sauce.
