If you follow us on social media, you may have seen the fabulous blogger brunch we attended at The Circle in Delray Beach. This invitation-only, interactive brunch was designed by celebrity event planners Sean Koski and Brian Kelly of Ticket2Events and co-owner of The Circle, Lauren Leaderhouse. No one throws an event or party like this trio, so we were more than happy to accept our invitation.
In true fashion, Koski, Kelly, and Leaderhouse planned an event that would bring local and national influencers and bloggers together on Feb. 24 called 50 Shades of Blogging. Bravo TV star Lauren Wirkus of “Summer House” co-hosted the event with “Big Kid Problems” creator Sarah Merrill along with Rosé Season creator, Sarah Billstein, who was on site to personally showcase the rosé lifestyle with an exclusive pop-up shop featuring rosé-themed items. It couldn’t have been more fabulous.
There’s nothing we love more than networking with fellow fashion and lifestyle influencers, and this brunch allowed us to do just that! Bloggers and guests were treated to delectable food from Potions in Motions while sipping on an endless supply of rosé provided by Villa Riviera and signature cocktails provided by Starr Rum. Upon taking our seats at the sprawling 50-foot table, we were gifted beautifully boxed jewelry from Kendra Scott. It was incredible all around—no detail was left unturned.
Following the brunch, we were invited inside to shop at other exclusive pop-up shops taking residence at The Circle, which included iShine 365, Trina Turk, Uwila Warrior, Kon-Dor Handbags, Whiskers Laces, and XOXO Pink Karma.
The Circle had an onsite “beauty bar,” which was complimentary to all invited guests and included hair touchups by ShearLuck Salon, and nail polish changes by Emilie Heathe via Allure by The Sea Day Spa. If that wasn’t enough, our car’s even received the royal treatment, as Washé was there with their on-demand car washing system. We’ve been big fans of Washé since they launched last year, so that was a great thing to add onto the day. All guests in attendance received a gift bag with products from Light Stim, Washé, Starr Rum, Sipp Organic, Boxed Water, CocoFloss, The Style Club LA, iShine 365, Apricot Lane Boutique in Delray Beach, Trina Turk, and more—it was valued at $1,250!
Some of the bloggers and influencers in attendance at The Circle Presents: 50 Shades of Bloggin’ included: Lauren Wirkus, @BigKidProblems, @RoseSeason, @pbsocialdiary, @WillWorkForFashion_ @tinseldot, @KierMellour, @Mdc_Etta, @letsbemomfriends, @palleriniproclaims, @brokersandbags, @laurenleaderhouse, @Seankoskii, @theconfusedmil and so much more!

This is what The Circle is all about, bringing community influencers and brands together to empower and increase awareness about one another.
The Circle hosts events monthly to showcase the latest brands that have a pop-up shop in their space. We have become true regulars at The Circle because it’s always packed with creative minds, innovative ideas and new ways of marketing fashion and lifestyle businesses! Who wouldn’t want to hangout there and collaborate all day?
