Between photo shoots, editing posts, creating content, engaging, networking, editorial calendars, promoting, researching and working with brands, it's no secret to those in the industry that blogging is tough work.

Luckily, there are plenty of perks as well. One of the funnest perks of being a blogger is attending events and meeting fellow bloggers. These events allow you to explore stores and restaurants, often getting a behind-the-scenes story, while getting to know like-minded driven individuals who don't find it odd if you're taking 1,000 pictures everywhere you go. 

Last weekend I went to a pretty epic blogger event at MarketStreet Lynnfield, read on to see where we shopped and what we chowed down on!

Dress | Coat | Flats ($13)

Above is the outfit I wore to the event. The dress is less than $100 and the trench coat is so versatile. I'm so obsessed with these blush flats for spring ($13). You may remember the outfit from this post

The agenda we were given for the event is below:

Davio's Italian Steak House
Amazon Books
Fat Face
David's Tea
Pia
Pink Parkway
California Pizza Kitchen

Davio's Italian Steak House


MarketStreet-Lynnfield-Blogger-Bruncheon-Event

Our first stop was brunch at Davio's Steak House in Lynnfield. Sound familiar? I recently reviewed Davio's Back Bay brunch location. Just a heads up for gluten-free friends that while the Back Bay location has a full gluten-free menu, the Lynnfield location does not. That said, they were more than accommodating to adjust current menu items to be gluten free (and they do have gluten-free muffins). 

We started with a bruleed ruby red grapefruit, followed by cinnamon popovers.

For my main course I went with the eggs benedict, which they put on gluten-free muffins.

Amazon Book Store

Have you ever been to an Amazon book store? This was our first time visiting one, and it was pretty cool. They put out the highest rated books of Amazon, including a new books section, and every book is displayed cover-out with Amazon reviews underneath each one. It's a great way to find highly rated books, and I love seeing this epic internet enterprise expanding into the brick-and-mortar model when so many retail stores are doing the opposite these days.

While at Amazon Books I bought Sheryl Sandberg's Option B, which is all about how to get through life when your Option A life plan falls through. She's the COO of Facebook and author of Lean In, and I saw her speak at my work recently which made me want to get this book! When checking out, be sure to give them your Amazon Prime information for a good discount - it saved me $11 on this book!

Fat Face


MarketStreet-Lynnfield-Blogger-Bruncheon-Event

Fat Face is this really cool British brand which has stylish clothes at affordable prices. The name comes from the phrase "phat" (for cool), and Face, the founder's favorite skiing trail. Their selection is stylish, casual and comfortable. Stay tuned to the blog to see the adorable dress and top I got here!

Pia

Pia is the cutest store! I love their fun, feminine vibe. They had cupcakes, rose, a pink couch, and even a live piano player while we shopped! We even got to meet Pia who was super sweet and stylish.

California Pizza Kitchen

Last but not least, we learned to toss pizza dough at California Pizza Kitchen! This was so fun and not as hard as you would think. They even had a gluten-free crust to make a g-free pizza!
