Champagne Stroll with OPEN Downtown Pop Up Shops

Hi loves! A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to co-host an event with my good friend Christina Ochoa, entrepreneur, blogger and founder of The Social Butterfly Gal. We had this fabulous idea to lead a Champagne Stroll in the beautiful historical area of La Villita, right after one of our favorite boutiques, Zelle Boutique, opened a long term pop shop in the shopping village with OPEN Downtown Pop Ups SA. This organization finds unused spaces in the city and rents them out to local shops for a 90 day period maximum in an effort to drive traffic to the area, so potential investors how the spaces can be used and of course create awareness of these wonderful local shops that don't have a storefront, but mostly run online or on social media. We thought, well there are about 5 shops with the program open in La Villita, why don't we host a fun event to hit them all up in one night?! And so we did! We were able to partner with OPEN and host the Champagne Stroll as a blogger event, because who more than us will make proper use of our social media influence to bring awareness to the amazing shops in the program! I mean, we DO love shopping! We had a blast! We visited Zelle Boutique, Bird & Pear, B.Link, Capistrano Soap Co. and Indigo Makers Collective. Each shop offered us champagne, cocktails and treats and an exclusive look into their collections while we played a fun social media driven Scavenger Hunt. It was so much fun! Definitely looking into hosting more events like this in the future.
