The Blog Baton Recap and a Little Weekending

Hey Gals! As we mentioned last week, we were thrilled to get to take part in The Blog Baton on Thursday, so in case you missed it, we thought it'd be fun to do a little recap.

And for those who aren't familiar with The Blog Baton, it was created by Mason, from the fabulous blog, Mason…Like The Jar and is a creative way to connect bloggers through the wonderful world of Instagram! Every week day, a different blogger takes over the Blog Baton Instagram account just for that day. The blogger can pretty much post anything they want through out the day, with the goal being to share a glimpse into the day of the life of that blogger. It's a fabulous way for you and your blog to reach more people in the blogging community, so we were so excited when Mason reached out to us and let us know we'd be taking over for the day!

You can read all about the rules and specifics here, and how to sign-up! We really had the best time and are so glad we got a chance to take over the baton!

So in case you missed it, here is a little recap of our day on the Baton!

We of course started out with the obligatory, "Meet the Gals" pic…

And then shared our morning coffee routines.. B grabs her Starbucks on the go, while I enjoy mine at home in my favorite Michael Buble mug!

Next up was a little #tbt to our high school graduation day since The Sequin Notebook is all about two bff's who go way, way back! 
Aww aren't we such babies?! #babygals

Then it was a little bit more about The Gals with some up close and personal shots and of course the big question of the day - which glitzy shoes should B chose?!

Next we shared one of our very favorite quotes - I mean, you can't go wrong with a little Tina Fey inspiration!

Then of course it was time for happy hour...

And finally, closing out the night with some blogging, wine and Bravo!

All in all, we had a blast holding the Baton for the day and definitely recommend it! We were able to connect with a bunch of new bloggers and make some new friends!

And just for a little weekending recap, B and I had our long awaited Gals night on Friday! We had such a great night catching up - even though we talk every single day, nothing beats hanging out in person over pizza and wine! When we get together, we tend to get a bit derailed from business and blogging, but I do have to say we were able to work on a bunch of upcoming bloggy projects, so I'm so excited for the coming weeks when we can share them all!

As usual, we were too busy gal'ing it up to remember to take many pictures, so I'll leave you with these two, which really sum it all up - wine for the night and coffee for the morning after!

How was everyone else's weekend - what were you up to?! And after reading our recap, is anyone planning to sign-up for The Blog Baton? We hope to see you on it soon!

Linking up with Meg, LeeannKimberleeMolly, Biana, and Meghan!
