Well, a couple of nights ago, DC bloggers went to an evening class called #CapFABBAcademy to learn (gain tips) on how to make their blog a business, how to work more closely with brands, how to gain a legit following on their respective social media pages, and plenty more lessons. This all took place at one of the cool spaces at CityCenterDC. The teachers (panelists) for the evening were Katya and Carlis of SpicyCandyDC, Cortnie of Style Lust Pages, Katherine of Director of E-Commerce at Nylon Mag, and Ana of Makeup by Ana B. The moderator, who did a great job, was Lacey of A Lacey Perspective.
Even though I had a few reasons why I went to the event - to catch up with Katherine, who I haven't seen since she moved to NYC; to support my blogger friends on the panel; to finally see the beautiful CityCenterDC up and personal - it was still a great learning experience to gain more information on what it takes to make your blog and your business, well, kind of a big deal.

Meanwhile, CityCenterDC is really something else. I remember a couple years back when that area was once a makeshift park-slash-bus terminal. Now? It's a 2.5 million square foot neighborhood with a mix of condominiums, apartments, offices, public spaces, hotel, restaurants, and shops.
I took a lot of photos under this digital art wall. Well, Whitney took the photos. All I did was harass her and pose. Poor, Whitney.
