If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed a couple weeks ago I took a trip to the PNW to meet with the Gibson and Nordstrom teams ahead of the International Women’s Day Collection Launch.

It was really important for the Suzie Turner, the founder of Gibson, to have all 9 influencers meet one another and have us do a photoshoot wearing our namesake pieces for Nordstrom’s site.

I’m still geeking over the fact that this happened and that my face will be on Nordstrom’s website!

Bonkers.

Unfortunately, not all of us could make it to Seattle but a majority of us did and I have to say it really did make this collaboration more meaningful and genuine.  Getting to know the other influencers was an awesome way to learn why Gibson wanted such a diverse group of women to come together.

I have to admit I was sooooo nervous about the entire weekend.

REASONS I WAS SOOOOO NERVOUS

  1.  I was flying literally across the country.  I’m not a good flyer.
  2. I was meeting 6 other amazing boss babes that are powerhouses in their own right. I always get nervous meeting other influencers but I would soon learn I had no reason to be.
  3. I was meeting not only Suzie but her team and the entire Nordstrom Women’s Purchasing Team.  Talk about overwhelming. 
  4. Having to do a photoshoot without the comforts of home like my go to photographer.

I’m not one to let nerves stop me from having an experience of a lifetime.  So I put on a brave face and fake it till I make it.

I also filmed a vlog of my time too and you can watch it on launch day – One more sleep away!

 Nordy Girls Selfie Time:  I was super shocked that they wanted to get a selfie with me for a coworker that couldn’t make it to the meeting.
