Knock, knock..who's there? Canadian Design bloggers and a whole lotta them..

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Saturday night is where Canadian design bloggers congregated at Brassaii on King Street West in Toronto for a meet & greet. Bunch of gals (and a few guys sprinkled in the mix for good measure) got together with chic industry folks like Cameron MacNeil and Lisa Murphy from House & Home, blogger superstar Cassandra LaValle from Coco & Kelly and then of course, Canadian design gurus like Brian Gluckstein.  So what was all of this about? Why did I go? Connection I think. Like with the like. I wanted a chance to meet the folks behind the blogs I read daily. You know wonder what makes them tick, are they like me and drool over brass lamps and paint colours?  It worked. I met some great people who are so much more colourful and talented in other areas of their lives than I ever imagined. So if any of you around the world have a chance to connect with your local blogging pals but are hesitant...I say go for it. It is good conversation and chances are you'll spot some fabulous shoes & clutches too. Bonus.
