Last Saturday, the Houston Latina Blogger's had its inaugural networking event. I've talked about it a few times here and mentioned it a billion times on social media. It's because it was a huge deal to me and the two ladies who founded it #sorrynotsorry Our goal has always been to empower women and help our community come together for new partnerships. This event was no different. We worked hard on getting everything in order from the moment we thought of the idea. We made connections with new brands for sponsorship & stuck to the partnership we were first given on location. It was a lot of work, but completely worth it to us. HLB wants to see you soar and if there is anything we can do to help, you can count your lucky stars that we'll be there for you!
Networking events are all about mingling. It gives you a chance to make new friends and hear their stories, plus ask for advice from seasoned bloggers/professionals. It truly is an experience like no other and if done correctly, you will walk out of there feeling inspired and really motivated to get your dream moving!!
One of our nomtastic sponsors was Pollo Tropical. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing they were. They hooked us up with way more food than we expected, but boy were we grateful. One of the things I truly love about being a Latina is how much we love food and how it's a must when we have an event. We knew we needed a local place with traditional homemade cooking for our event because it's comforting and puts massive smiles on people's faces! Pollo Tropical was very giving and hooked us up with chicken, rice, beans, salad, amazing rolls and my favorite platanos. I, of course, went crazy on the platanos!!
Pollo Tropical was so generous with their nomtastic food and we had sooooo much left over that as a true Latina, I took some home. K, so we told a lot of folks to take some home LOL! But that's another thing HLB is about, sharing and caring. If you haven't already tried Pollo Tropical, I highly recommend it and the fact that the customer service is good makes it so much better! Below is my take home plate. Okay, not a plate but a big ol' bandeja that makes me smile just thinking about it, haha!
Muchas gracias Pollo Tropical for partnering up with the Houston Latina Bloggers and giving us nomtastic food!
