On Thursday, May 19, we hosted our second annual Top 30 Fabulous Mom Bloggers celebration and it was a fabulous night. A special congratulations goes out to Karen Brackett of Adventures of the Sunshine Brigade, our Top Mom Blogger of 2011. Check out the wonderful and inspiring list of Top Mom Bloggers of the year you voted for!
The evening was full of chatter and laughter as many bloggers met in person for the first time and finally got to put a face to the websites, tweets and blog posts we love to follow. There were cold drinks and delicious food–and even a tiny baby–at the event held in Bopomo Pictures’ lovely location on West Broadway in Kitsilano.
All the 2011 Top 30 Mom Blog winners received professional headshots courtesy of Bopomo Pictures and complimentary makeup and colour consultations from Joyce Lau of Yummy Mummy Makeovers. And everyone went home with gorgeous goody bags from Raspberry Kids that were stuffed with lots of loot, including an iDance pass, necklaces from iVillage, makeup from London Drugs, samples from Lunapads, and more.
There were some big winners of wonderful door prizes including:
- a getaway at Harrison Hot Springs (Amanda Wray)
- classes from Hayabusa Karate (Amber Strocel)
- a Chariot stroller (Tracy Westerholm)
- a gift basket full of makeup from London Drugs (Tanaya Dutchyn)
A special thank you to Bopomo Pictures, Raspberry Kids and SAHMedia for co-organizing and sponsoring the event! Also, a big thank you to all the wonderful sponsors who supplied amazing door prizes and gifts for all of the bloggers!
