Bloggers Who Brunch LA is proud to announce Bumble as the title sponsor of our July event!
Connecting has never been more fun, safe, or awesome. Bumble shows you the people you want to see and lets you connect by a mutual opt in by swiping right. Bumble eliminates that level of awkwardness after a connection is made, and sets the stage for how the convos begin. The woman always makes the first move, and if she doesn't say something to a new connection within 24 hours, that connection disappears forever!
BWBLA was started to bring together a community of strong, inspirational women and Bumble is the perfect example of a company that shares our message of female empowerment. In partnering with Bumble, we knew that we would give our attendees an afternoon to remember with delicious food, a panel of incredible women, and the opportunity to network with influencers and business women from around the world! Thank you Bumble! xo

This past weekend, BWBLA hosted Sunday brunch in West Hollywood at Eveleigh, a rustic American-European style restaurant with an authentic farmhouse charm. Ivy lined the walls of the patio exterior and string lights hung near magnolia trees inside of the dining room.
And, of course, the day wasn’t complete without a perfectly brunch menu. The classic avocado toast, zucchini bread, and banana bread were brought out to start. Hot cakes, baby spinach, baked eggs, and French fries were served after.
Placed at each plate were table cards featuring hand-painted watercolor illustrations of the guest speaker, Nicole Isaacs, and boxes of handmade jewelry from Belladaar. Cream-colored boxes filled with pastel yellow roses from Landeau were lined up and down the antique Cherry wood table in the center of the room. Despite the overcast outside, the atmosphere inside remained cheerful and upbeat as attendees took their seats on the benches.
Founder Alex Georgy kicked brunch off with an intro and Q&A with blogger Nicole Isaacs. Isaacs, who runs a travel and lifestyle blog, shared how she went from working a job to transforming her blogging hobby into a full-time career. She gave career advice for aspiring bloggers and talked with attendees about everything from social media to travel and even stories about her personal experiences.
After plates were cleared and photos were finished, all attendees left with amazing goodie bags, provided by sponsors including:
- Wildflower phone cases
- Belladaar handmade jewelry
- Orly nail polishes
- Twin Shady sunglasses
- Stivii naturally sweetened chocolate bars
- Landeau floral arrangements
- Art by Tayst
The event brought together delicious food and even better company. Brunch at Eveleigh was an opportunity for influencers to come together to share creativity and inspire each other, and we can’t wait until the next time! Until then, stay updated with all our events on Instagram.
