Zaarly and KC Blogger Meetup Events!

Last week, I was invited to the first ever Zaarly market bazaar! What is Zaarly you ask? It’s an online website that has discounts for handpicked shops and vendors in your local area. They’ve got services like making cupcakes for your party, party packages, driving you to the airport, a handyman, guitar lessons and dog obedience training. They sell items like customized cutting boards, jewelry, portraits, anything you can think of. The best part is that these are local and are from the best of the best.  Right now, Zaarly is only available in Kansas City, San Francisco (food photography workshop, so cool!), Los Angeles (celebrity party package, holla!) and Seattle (adult finger painting kit – ohh la la!)… but feel free to type in your city to get notified when they open up locally for ya!

Can you guess what I bought?  Ummm jewelry of course (from Coki)!  But I seriously considered getting macarons and key lime tarts too…

Had to stop and take some outfit pictures too of course.  And then later that night, I headed to our January 2013 KC blogger event at the hair salon I go to, the Glam Room!

I was so happy to see that Just Swoon made these cookies for the event, the same place that made cookies for Austin’s birthday party!

  2. My city is never the first to have these things but I always think they’re so cool. Here’s to hoping that cool things come to my city soon.

  3. How do you find out about these things? Or start them? I don’t know of any bloggers in my community, but I would love to start something like this. Any suggestions?

  4. I’d love to visit a Zaarly event in Los Anngeles, it looks like there were some amazing finds and experiences!

  5. How cool that you had 2 parties in one night! Zaarly sounds like a really great concept to connect local businesses with their neighbors who might be in need of their services.

    I might have had to pick up one of those amazing rolling pins for my dad. He bakes bread at least once a week and would love one.

  6. That event looks really fun! I hope Zaarly comes to my city soon. Oh, and those cookies from JustSwoon look really cool! And tasty!
