This Calls for a Celebration....Project Soiree Turns 2!

Today Project Soiree turns 2! It seems like just yesterday I was curled up in my apartment gazing out my window at the aftermath of the famous 2011 blizzard with a cup of coffee, my laptop and an idea. I called my sister and explained my idea to start a blog that would document my experiences in the city and her response was "go for it." I never imagined two years later that Project Soiree would be such an integral and important part of my life here in Chicago. I'm extremely thankful for the doors this blog has opened and the amazing friends I've made in the city. It's hard to imagine what my life would be like without this blog so thank you for your support and kind comments throughout these past two years. You have inspired me to continue following my dreams and for that I'm very thankful.

This past year has been filled with some memorable opportunities and establishing connections with talented bloggers here in Chicago. Here are some of my favorite highlights:

Being featured on West Elm's blog Front & Main
A fun style feature on The Urbaness
Opening the Project Soiree Etsy Shop
A memorable Rent the Runway event with pretty and fun and Brown Eyed Style
An appearance on WGN with Rent the RunwayUnicorn StylingsJuncture and Sequins & Stripes
Mad Men event with the Chicago Blogger Network
Tasting amazing food from Eden of Eden Eats
Starting my 101 in 1001 list

I'm really excited for what this next year will bring (style posts, giveaways, tips & tricks and maybe a video or two). If you have any suggestions for things you want to see on Project Soiree please let me know.

Thank you again for supporting me and encouraging me to continue following my passion. To celebrate Project Soiree's 2 year anniversary I'm offering 20% off in the Etsy Shop starting February 2-9 with code 2YEAR.
