NOVEMBER BLOGGER OF THE MONTH: SANAH FROM BEAUTY AND THE PITCH
by HFB Intern on





Tell us about yourself
Born and raised in Texas, Sanah [pronounced sun-ah] is a PR girl by day and a beauty blogger by night. Upon graduating from The University of Texas at Austin as a fellow Longhorn, Sanah packed her bags and moved to NYC for only an internship - which started her adventures for Beauty and the Pitch. Never having been to New York before, she made the big move for her career and is now back to the state that holds her heart, Texas, inspiring girls to follow their dreams no matter how big they are and where it takes them.

What is your blog about and what are your goals for your blog?
 Beauty and the Pitch (BATP) is about everything beautiful for the working girl - from fashion, beauty and health, sometimes dabbling with home and travel, to succeeding professionally in the working world. Currently, my dot.com home is looking for ways to be more visual and more focused on adding "fashion moments" on Instagram while I focus on a dream that I've had for sometime to write and publish a book.




What's your favorite thing about being a blogger?
I host a Blogger LinkUP here and there where bloggers write about the same optic and that's always really fun for me! Connecting with bloggers and letting a creative, written word bring us to together is a unique experience. I've met some great, hardworking, truly inspiring people and made some amazing friends through Beauty and the Pitch and I know thats only the beginning.
 
Why did you choose to join Houston Fashion Bloggers?
Houston Fashion Bloggers opens the door to so many different opportunities to grow your blog and also allows you to find a support system that makes your vision attainable. By working with HFB, I've found people who understand my dreams and make me realize how attainable it is with the right attitude and the right pair of shoes.

Thalia Sodi Appearance at Macy's Recap!





On Saturday the 19th Macy's welcomed Thalia Sodi, an internationally recognized songwriter, singer, author and designer. I got the chance to meet and talk with her and she has to be the most gentle sweetest soul. This is Thalia's first collection with Macy's and she is thrilled to be a part of it. Her collection features women's apparel, shoes, and jewelry!

Thalia was wearing her colored skinny pants in blue & her animal print halter top.
Thalia also did a meet & greet with her fans later that day, and she stayed till she met with every last one of them! You can tell her fans mean a lot to her, and she showed so much gratitude towards them.

OCTOBER BLOGGER OF THE MONTH: Tammy of The Style Accomplice
by Taylor Brione on




Tell us about yourself
I am a 30-something MBA student living in Houston, TX and working in Business Development. One day I would love to work in Social Media Management for a Fashion House and have my own Image Consulting firm. My favorite store is Zara, my favorite food is anything with rice, and my favorite hobby is traveling. Fashion is like water to me, I can’t live without it. I consider my style ‘Eclectic’ so my fashion muses are: Rihanna, Olivia Palermo, Solange, and Kahlana Barfield.

What is your blog about and what are your goals for your blog?
My Fashion and Lifestyle blog is essentially about working with what you’ve got and presenting it in the best way you can. My goal for my blog is to be a resource for women who look like me. I want them to leave my blog being more knowledgable, confident, and inspired to better their own personal style and lives.



What's your favorite thing about being a blogger?
My favorite thing about being a blogger is meeting new people. I have genuinely enjoyed meeting people who have similar interests as me because before I start blogging, that wasn’t happening. Some of the brands I have connected with have been great too.


Why did you choose to join Houston Fashion Bloggers?
I wanted to be a part of an organization that I could learn from and grow with. When I started blogging I didn’t know what I was doing or what the possibilities were. Being around this group of amazing bloggers has shown me the light and I’m grateful for the growth is has provided me.

SIGNATURE FASHION EVENT AT THE GALLERIA EVENT RECAP
by HFB Intern on


I had the privilege of going to the Fall Fashion Show sponsored by Cadillac this past week and wow, what a show! The show introduced looks from Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Carolina Herrera, Ferragamo, Zenga, John Varvatos; special guests DJ/model Hannah Bronfman, celebrity stylist Johnny Wujeck & Vogue stylist Cara Crowley.

Although the designers were the center of attention that night, I couldn't help but notice the crowds attire too! Houston cleans up nicely! It was a night to remember, with Houston's greatest!
