Out & About At Chicagogrammers 2nd Birthday/Pool Party
If you're in Chicago and Instagram is your jam, you should probably join the Chicagogrammers, a group on facebook and instagram that allows you to network with entrepreneurs and meet new people. Almost every week they send out a new location to meet up, most of which are sponsored and free. This past Sunday was a summer pool party in honor of their second birthday at 1407 on Michigan. While there, my cousin (Chicago Makeup Artist & Sheena Marie Glam Squad Makeup Artist) @zhanemaryann did my makeup and a live Facebook tutorial to grab some attention.
Founders of the group @Katie_Carrico & @thehungrybuddah did an amazing job putting the event together. Vendors attended with food, drinks, and booze while creative entrepreneurs showcased their business and work within the apartments of the building. Although I've been a member for awhile, this was my first time attending an event with any of them besides the ShopBuzzed Events that I was apart of last year in which some of the group members would attend. It's been hard to stick to RSVP's and dates when you've got kids and random things that are known to pop up. I do plan to attend more along with my cousins since I've made them sign up to get their networking on too.
