And the conference begins!
Have you ever had a nervous, but exciting feeling in your stomach when you meet new people for the first time? Well, we got that feeling when we received a message from Stiletto of Lips Hips and Fatshion tips that our introductions would start at 11 p.m. By this time, we had ate McDonalds, explored our hotel room and were changing our clothes for the first event of the conference at the Peppermill.

I don’t know if it was the time change (we were now on west coast time) or if it was the nerves but 11 p.m. zoomed around the corner and we we’re knocking on their hotel room door (which happened to not be that far from ours). Once going in, we instantly connected and we were all gabbing and laughing like long lost sorority sisters! We were so happy to be in a group of bloggers we admired and whose blogs we read almost everyday! Also, it was great to put voices and inflections behind everyone’s twitter names because it is hard to read emotion from someone on the internet! From then on, we knew that the conference would be a smash!
Check out the amazing bloggers and the pics from our first event at the Peppermill Lounge provided by Figuresque. Day 1 of the Viva Fat Vegas Blogger Conference!
