Brome Blogger Brunch!




We've attended our fair share of events over the years.
From foodie gatherings, to fashion shows, to store openings, we've done it all.
The only thing we hadn't done yet?
Host our own event!
...
While the thought was exciting, it was also daunting.
As an avid party planner (does High School count?), I knew that while parties are fun, the planning that goes into it can be quite the headache.
Until Brome Modern Eatery put all our worries to rest.
They offered their own invitations, food spread, and location downtown.
All we needed to do was pick a date and invite some guests.
...
So, we planned the first Bedazzled Britt Brome Blogger's Brunch!
...
It was held in Brome's Balence sky walk juice bar, with the perfect lighting to take plenty of goofy pics in front of our tropical backdrop.
Poor Savannah got a balloon to the head a few times while we were driving them over (sorry Sav).
 We sampled one of everything off Brome's extensive menu of burgers, fries, salads, shakes, and smoothies.
Most importantly we rekindled old friendships and made new ones.
...
We loved seeing you ladies being carefree and creative, and connecting with each other at our event! That's what this is all about. Blogging isn't meant for cliques, it's meant for connecting with all other bloggers. Learning and sharing, enjoying one another's company, and experiencing this crazy creative lifestyle together.
...
That's why we'll be hosting many more events to come!
If you would like to join us at our next event, message Bedazzled Britt on Instagram or email at bedazzledbritt@gmail.com!
...
Thank you, ladies, for joining us at our first event!

Lastly, a HUGE thank you to Brome Modern Eatery for hosting!

Driving Detroit With Hyundai!



As bloggers, we are constantly driving to and from the heart of Detroit to do business with other Detroit creatives. Two weeks ago, we were invited to meet up with Detroit's hottest bloggers, designers, photographers, videographers, models, and artists to create content to get people excited over the city. 
You could say we are trying to be a driving force behind Detroit ;)
So we packed up our 2018 Electric Blue Hyundai Sonata Limited, and headed to the city. 
...
While this was just one of many events we attend in Detroit, we noticed a few common factors in our visits that were easily avoided with the Hyundai Sonata.
...
We always have our hands full.
When heading to these events, we're overwhelmed with makeup bags, camera bags, outfit changes, etc.
With its hands-free smart trunk with auto open, we didn't have to attempt to pry the trunk open with our foot while balancing on the other with arms full of precious cargo!
...
Parking is always impossible.
Detroit is filled with narrow parking garages, street sides that require parallel parking, and lots with spaces stacked on top of each other. 
With the Sonata's rear view camera, blind spot detection system, and rear cross-traffic alert, parking was a beautiful and effortless thing. Especially since our meetup began on the top level of a packed Z-Garage!
...
We're always crammed in the car.
When we go to these events we like to carpool, and cramming 3-4 artists in a car along with all our gear makes for a tight ride! 
The Sonata was extremely spacious for a car, and the driver's front seat automatically pushed back to make room for the driver to get in and then pulled forward for Savannah behind me to have plenty of leg-room!
...
Our cell phones are dead by the end of the day.
So what if we like to take a lot of selfies and share every teensie detail of what we're doing? Trust us, we weren't the only ones there draining that cell battery.
Thankfully, the Sonata had a wireless device charging station that we took full advantage of!
...
While literally and figuratively driving Detroit, we felt fortunate to enjoy the ease that our Hyundai Sonata offered us. 
Thank you, Hyundai for making this our most successful meetup yet!

Drybar Birmingham!


The truth is, I've never had my hair done at the salon before. 
My mom has always been the one to cut, dye, and style my entire family's hair, and she's always done a fantastic job!
...
But naturally I've always been curious what it would be like to have it done by someone else.
At the same time, I've been terrified to let someone else touch my precious hair. 
Until Drybar offered the opportunity to have it done at their first Michigan location in downtown Birmingham
...
Admittedly, I was beyond nervous walking into my appointment.
Until I met my stylist, Christian.
Not only was she super sweet, but she had a warm smile and bubbly personality.
She talked about being from the south, and living in sunny California, and I started to forget how nervous I was.
...
Then they brought over a warm cup of tea and honey, and I felt completely at home.
...
I chose a "Southern Comfort" hairstyle with lots of volume and big soft curls.
First, she washed my hair with a sweet-smelling shampoo and conditioner. Then she added protective products, and began the drying process. 
...
It was nothing like drying my hair at home. Typically I turn it on the highest setting, and blow it around furiously, trying to dry my massive amount of hair as quickly as possible. Instead, she took it in layers, softly drying it from root to end. Once dry, she began to tease for added volume, and curl it in sections. Then came the big reveal. When she turned the chair, I was surprised by how much I loved the way it looked. She then made sure that I loved the style before applying a hairspray that would hold it all day.
...
Thank you to Christian, and to Drybar for the truly wonderful experience!
I may be your newest regular customer ;)
