List of Best Twitter Chats for Bloggers

List of Best Twitter Chats for Bloggers 2014

Hello dear readers! Ever since fellow Boston blogger Natalie (@NatalesM) and I launched the #USBloggerChat (every Thursday at 8pm EST), people have been asking for a full list of twitter chats for bloggers. 

Twitter chats are a great way to engage with, socialize and learn from fellow bloggers. It can even be a source of inspiration, such as my recent blog design upgrade by @pipdig.

I thought it would make a nice blog post to have all the twitter chats in one place so here it is! I've arranged them in chronological order according to days of the week and in eastern standard time. Let me know if I've missed any!

Best Halloween Costume Ideas 2014

Can you believe it's already late October? Summer seemed to go by in a wink, and now that fall is here, it's time to start getting together Halloween costumes!

Flapper Girl

Someone said something to me the other day that absolutely blew my mind: In a few short years, it will be the 20's again! As in, the 2020's. This makes me think of the style and glamour of the 1920's - the Great Gatsby parties, prohibition, and of course flapper girl dresses! I've always wanted to dress up as a flapper girl for Halloween, and haven't quite gotten around to it yet.

Britney Spears

Because everyone loves a good Britney costume - straight from her first single, this schoolgirl outfit is so fun! Don't forget the pink scrunchies! 

Best Halloween Costume Ideas 2014

Maleficent

Let's be honest, Angelina brought back Sleeping Beauty this summer with Maleficent's side of the story. She's one of the costumes I expect to see a lot of this year. My roommates and I are going as Disney villans, and I chose Maleficent since I love the story of Sleeping beauty!

Ariel

Who hasn't wanted to be Ariel at one point or another? She's a mermaid! She can swim all she wants, and has gorgeous flowing hair. Yes please.

Best Halloween Costume Ideas 2014

Marie Antoinette

From the big dresses to the big hair, there's just something fun about the extravagance of women's fashion during the French Revolution. The style is so romantic and feminine. 

Best Halloween Costume Ideas 2014

Cleopatra

After watching The Mummy Returns on tv yesterday, I have a newfound need to dress in everything that is Ancient Egypt - the snakes, the gold, the cats! Cleopatra was a strong woman figure before it was cool. 

Best Halloween Costume Ideas 2014

Princess Anna

As a Disney lover, I have to include a Frozen outfit in my Halloween post! I enjoyed Princess Anna's character much more than Elsa's - Anna was fun, quirky and relatable. 

Best Halloween Costume Ideas 2014

Hope you enjoyed my Halloween inspiration for 2014!

Comment Challenge: I'm going as Maleficent & Britney this year. What will your Halloween costume be for 2014?

Furla Grand Opening: A Boston Blogger Event

Furla Boston Blogger Event

Last week, I was lucky enough to be invited to Furla's Grand Opening in Boston's Copley Place Mall. Founded in 1927, Furla is an upscale handbag, shoe and accessory company out of Bologna, Italy. 

I love the bright colors Furla uses in their handbags, accessories, and even winter rain boots shown above! They offer neutral colors as well, but the bright colors are what really strike me.

Furla's grand opening was so fun - they had a DJ, champagne, and delicious hors d'oeuvres to keep us entertained. As for the products themselves, you could really tell that each bag and shoe is an investment piece made with the highest quality. I was so tempted to get one, but I tend to go more for the Target bags that I go through in a season or two!

Comment Challenge: Do you go for investment pieces in your handbags, or do you prefer the less pricey bags?
