How do I even begin to recap this amazing weekend spent deep in the wilderness with fellow likeminded creative, stylish and inspiring women?
Okay, it wasn’t exactly “deep” in the the wilderness. We were only 30 minutes or so outside of Austin and we were technically “glamping.” Because, how often do you “camp” in cabins with throw pillows, ruffled shower curtains, vases filled with flowers, and bathrooms stocked with luxurious hair products?
Ha, not very often. The Texas Style Council team pulled out all of the stops to ensure that we had the most enjoyable time at TXSC15.
I attended Texas Style Council as a blogger, but I also helped out as a volunteer. This way I was able to get to camp a few days early and I also had the opportunity to meet people that I’m not sure I would have otherwise.
You really bond over making 100s of beds and running around in the middle of the night secretly placing boxes of girl scout cookies on every bed, in every cabin, right? There is something about that “all in this together” feeling that I had with the other volunteers that made the conference that much more special. Yes, we were at TXSC to learn, to grow and to be inspired by the amazing speakers and the weekend in general, but volunteering added a whole new element to the weekend that I’m very thankful for, stressful situations and all!
Because I seriously can’t do the weekend justice by just writing about it (and let’s be honest you guys would be here ALL DAY) so I’m sharing a few photos below to give you a taste of what Texas Style Council 2015 was all about.

It really is unbelievable how many different opportunities are out there for bloggers to learn, connect, and grow together. One of the words that stuck with me over the weekend was “frentor” which was said quite a bit over the course of the weekend. It basically means a friend that you look up to in the blogging/professional world that you also perceive as a mentor. I definitely gained quite a few new “frentors” from Texas Style Count and I can’t wait to see what comes from these new relationships!
Hope you guys are having a great week so far! Who’s excited to break out their pastels this Easter weekend?! I know I am!
