I recently attended an amazing event that was held at one of the coolest places in Philadelphia, URBN Headquarters. Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People, and Terrain are all centered at the industrial Naval Yard in South Philadelphia. It was a day filled with bloggers, [the best] vegan cookies, fashion, and networking!
The event was held at building 543, the meeting place, cafeteria, mailroom and just main community area for all the URBN buildings. Being at this building brought back so many memories of being in college. Designers working in their cubicles, eating at a cafeteria with your buddies and riding a bus specifically to your workplace. It was just so amazing! The blogger event was held by one of the Free People blog's writer, Shani, she knows exactly all there is to know about the blogging business! The day was filled with SEO technicalities, photography editing, how to be a social media maven, and blogging 101!
It was very cool to meet the ladies behind the Free People blog. You could hear the passion in their voices as they spoke about blogging for Free People. I love listening to people talk about blogging as more than just a hobby because that is exactly how I feel about it! They also took us on a tour to see the Free People building, BLDG 25. One word, inspirational! Everything from the decor to their desks was spewing creativity, it was just my kind of vibe. Everyone I met that day was so happy, perky and bubbly!
Also, if you follow Free People and Urban Outfitters' instagram, then you may have spotted me on their feed!

All in all, great event! Getting to see the home office of one of my favorite brands has been on my bucket list for a long time. That's one to scratch off the list and many more to go! Plus the relationships built that day are unforgettable, met one of my favorite Philly bloggers and a handful of new and interesting ones too. Thank you Free People!
