On Valentine's Day, most girls celebrate the love they have with their boyfriend or significant other. This year, myself and a group of sweet girlfriends and bloggers from around the country met up in Dallas, Texas to celebrate our love for each other, fashion and blogging. Some of us knew each other better than others, some of us only knew each other through our blogs and social media, but by the end of the weekend, we felt like a great big fashionable family. And I fell in love with each and every one of them.

It's no secret blogging can be tough at times, especially living in a competitive world where people judge the way you look or the things you wear. For some, this is a cut throat industry — and that's just not for me. We all have something to learn from each other and it's so important to lift each other up. So, it makes me feel really fortunate to have finally met some of the sweet girls I've been inspired by from afar and strengthen my friendships with those already here in Dallas. Collectively, these are one of the most supportive, loving and encouraging group of girls I've ever met in my life.

So, to really celebrate this love and admiration for one another, we decided to have a fun, colorful Valentine's-themed brunch. And it just so happens that this Valentine's Brunch was featured on Glitter Guide!

For more on all of the sweet girls involved, please take some time to check out each of their blogs below — they are all unique and so much fun to read.
