Boston Blogger Holiday Event: Yankee Swap at Cambridgeside Galleria

Boston Blogger Event

Last week, Blog and Tweet Boston and Cambridgeside Galleria spoiled us bloggers with an amazing holiday event! We all met up at the mall in Cambridge for a festive Yankee Swap - or should I say glamour swap! 

A Boston Blogger Event

The mall was already fully decked out with holiday decorations. I love all the glitter and bright colors that the holidays bring.

And the Yankee/Glamour Swap begins! Each person randomly draws a number, and comes up to choose a gift one by one. They show their gift to everyone. When your number is called, you can choose to swap gifts with anyone who came before you!

I was thrilled with my gift, and chose not to swap with anyone. My gift was this adorable clutch and preppy statement necklace by Charlotte Russe. They're so my style and I'm excited to wear them for the holidays!


We also all received darling giftbags, filled with goodies from Sephora and The Body Shop. So far, I'm loving these F.A.B. cleansers and moisturizers, not to mention the Rouge Artist Naturale lipsticks!

Next, we sauntered up to Plammie, the funnest fitwear store! I love the bright colors and sassy quotes they use, and the staff is always so sweet.

  21. Another amazing event! The clutch is super cute. Makes me wish I blogged in a larger city in the U.S. or U.K. - not because of the freebies and such but more so the opportunity to connect with other bloggers. :-)
