It’s nearly been a week since the Oh My Drifter Relaunch Party and it’s time to do a recap! The party was held at BellJar in San Francisco. When I first started blogging and became more aware of the small business scene in San Francisco, BellJar was one of the first boutiques on my radar. I thought everything in the store was so beautifully curated. I wondered who owned such a place and if my business would ever be of a high enough caliber to collaborate with businesses like that. It’s amazing all these years later to have partnered with BellJar in hosting my little blog relaunch party. Dreams do come true, guys!
Y’all know I have a trillion bajillion allergies so I wanted all the drinks and treats to be allergy-friendly. Pop & Bottle supplied almond milk (in three different flavors!) and Mariposa supplied cookies.
The first 10 guests to arrive received one Drifter Organics body butter of their choice (see them hanging out next to the almond milk?). Since we’re still in prelaunch, it was interesting to see what people’s favorites scents were.
I also am very big on free swag. (Who isn’t?) I wanted the goodie bags to be more than a thank you card and free pencil. A huge thank you to my friend Jess of June Letters who contributed tons of beautiful paper goodies for the goodie bags. I’m going to hang that art print over my bed—it’s one of my favorite quotes. The goodie bags were cotton totes because I don’t know about you but I could always use more totes to carry things around in when I’m out and about. When you think about it, paper goodie bags are such a waste and I didn’t want people to throw away the packaging as soon as they got home.
Thanks everyone who came out for the event. I got to see a lot of familiar faces and meet new friends! We talked, shopped and geeked out over all our mutual online friends. The Internet is a lovely invention, folks. Starting my blog 7 years ago really changed my life!
I’m taking off the rest of the week due to the holiday, but will be back on Monday!
