It’s Alt Summit Time!!

Alt Summit 2013

Hey, hey Lovelies! Greetings from Salt Lake City. I flew in last night for the annual Altitude Design Summit. It’s my first time attending and I am PUMPED!! Tickets for this 4-day shinding sold out in minutes…I’m so glad I was at my computer at the right time to snag one.

For those of you who are sitting there puzzled as to what “Alt Summit” actually is, it’s a 4-day conference for the Design & Blogging Community set in Salt Lake City. It aims to bring together a community of exciting, creative thinkers and entrepreneurs (lat year’s panel speakers included Ben from Pinterest among many others.) It’s a place to be creative, make new friends, network and have fun with like-minded people. I’m super excited for this year’s speakers. And to top it all off, there’s a giant “Clue” themed costume party happening tonight….which color scheme do you think I’m going with??

I’ll check back in with you guys tomorrow….for now, I’m off to stuff my head full of new information & have a little fun, too!

New Skills {c/o NYC}


Happy Monday, Lovelies!

This past weekend’s Blogshop here in NYC was Incredibly enlightening!! I got to meet a great group of fellow creatives/bloggers/entrepreneurs and of course two amazing teachers – Bri & Angela. I learned so many new techniques and tricks, along with many, many new ways to maximize my creative thoughts and make my blogging more fun and effective. Currently, my brain is completely over-stuffed with new information!! I’m here in NYC for a few more days to browse around the city, take in some sights, do some shopping and of course, eat my way through some awesome restos! Below are a few snippets from the weekend.  xo
