Sip + Style with Bzees x Athleta



Towards the end of September, I attended a fantastic event where Bzees teamed up with Athleta to present a “Sip + Style” at their UTC location.  In addition to delicious sushi by Blue Ocean, dessert by Frost Me Gourmet and wine by California Fruit Wine, bloggers and influencers enjoyed a fun photo boot and then were treated to a lesson on how Bzees are made and “athleisure”.  If you are unfamiliar with the term, think of it as the clothes and shoes you go home and relax in after your rigorous work out.  It really was a great night because not only did I get to hang out with some of my fellow bloggers, proceeds from the evening’s purchases were donated towards the San Diego Autism Speaks Walk, in support of Autism Tree Foundation.  To continue the good work, Bzees will be donating $5 from every pair of shoes sold using code OLIVER to the Autism Tree Project.  Thank you Bzees, Athleta and Be Social PR for a wonderful night and for my first pair of Bzees!





Beautiful and delicious creations by Blue Ocean!

Bzees are quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I own.  They are extremely light, and the foam on the inside make my feet feel like they are surrounded by a pillow!

Shall We Shop at Madewell? Bien Sûr!

Last Thursday, a few San Diego Style Bloggers were invited to preview Madewell’s new collection at their University Town Center location in La Jolla.  In addition to shopping, we were treated to sweet treats and drinks while we put together holiday looks.  I arrived right at 6pm, which allowed me to take a few pictures before meeting up with some of my fellow #SDStyleBloggers.  I shopped just a little, grabbing some good deals on a little bit of bling.  After the holiday, I’ll be sure to indulge a bit more, and that Bien Sûr sweater is at the top of my list.  Thanks to Joseph and Lauren at Madewell UTC for a wonderful night!
