This past Monday evening was the Windy City Blogger Collective holiday party at the Hubbard Inn in River North. It was a great opportunity to enjoy some tasty drinks and snacks, do some shopping, catch up with friends and meet new-to-me bloggers.

Shopping the beautiful finds from Generation Bliss Boutique … 

I went home with this beautiful necklace! And a one for a friend’s Christmas present. 


Lauren tried on this adorable duster vest from Alice + Wonder and I’ve been coveting it ever since.

Delicious appetizers, cocktails, wine and cupcakes provided by Hubbard Inn and Sprinkles. 


I didn’t take photos of the space, so here is one from their website. We were on the third floor of the Hubbard Inn, which is a really nice private event space.  Lots of leather couches and low tables, as well as cocktail tables, a private bar and private restrooms. Definitely a great option for a holiday party or other private event. 

What holiday parties have you gone to? Are you planning to go to? I have a couple work parties and celebrations with my family and my in-laws.
