I have been keeping a secret, and I can finally tell you. A couple of months ago I found out ALIVE Magazine chose Bangles & Bungalows as Best Blogger in St. Louis for the magazine’s “We Heart St. Louis: Best of the City” Editor’s Choice Awards. It’s a huge honor considering the amazing blogger talent in St. Louis. To be the only blogger recognized amongst the rest of the city’s best of the best is humbling. You can check it all out in the June 2015 We Heart STL issue of ALIVE Magazine. The issue also features the city’s top talent in dining, night-life, shopping, culture and more. This is one of the most popular issues of the year and a great resource for things to do in the city — you can’t go wrong with an ALIVE recommendation!
To celebrate all of the honorees, ALIVE is hosting the We Heart St. Louis Event Presented by Bud Select. Come meet me there!

My Top 3 Reasons to Attend the We Heart STL Event:
- Networking: You never know who you’re going to meet. After last year’s event, I met Elizabeth Wiseman, a popular St. Louis photographer. We exchanged information and collaborated on an amazing photo shoot for a client’s magazine I edited last summer.
- Food: Sometimes it’s so hard to discover or find time to visit the new restaurants/food trucks St. Louis has to offer. ALIVE brings together trending eateries in one place so you can sample their best fare.
- After Hours: By the end of the night, ALIVE’s DJ ensures the dance floor is still hot. Sometimes you just want to dance till you can’t stop, won’t stop.
Last year’s party was one of the hottest summer soirées around. It’s a great opportunity to catch up with friends and say hello to the beautiful St. Louis summer season. Don’t miss the We Heart STL Event!
Thanks again to ALIVE Magazine for awarding me best blogger in St. Louis — such a huge honor!
