I should be packing right now but I have this incredible urge to find anything ELSE to do but that. It may be that whenever I go to a conference there is shopping involved. The idea of walking through those doors at Nordstrom without a “sponsor” makes me weak in the knees. Why do I find the need to completely overhaul my perfectly fine, yet aging wardrobe whenever I am going to one of these conferences? To make matters worse its snowing and this California girl doesn’t have much int he way of warm clothes. I however have one thing a black felted wool coat I purchased off season at JCREW, hands down one of my better investments and I believe it’s on the 100.
Its been almost six months since BlogHer and three since Camp and probably would have been another six months before I traveled again had I not purchased my tickets early last year. You know November just about killed me right? Well thanks to a prepaid trip and a very understanding husband I am off to Salt Lake City in the morning to attend Alt Design Summit. Whats Alt? I’ll let them explain since this is my first time going.
Design. Lifestyle. Photography. Fashion. Events. Styling. Art Direction. Food. Interior Design.
If you’re obsessed with lifestyle, food and fashion blogs, fantastic images, smart ideas and great design inside and outside — all wrapped up with a social media bow — Altitude Design Summit is the place to be. Because we feed those obsessions.
I think that pretty much sums up all the reasons I am even on the internet. I can’t wait. I really really REALLY want to narrow down a focus on my blog. I’m not sure what that is maybe a redesign to better fit my posting habits, better navigation I want a better shelf life for my posts. Here today buried tomorrow is a very short life cycle and I’m thinking there has got to be a better way to organize and that’s what I am hoping to get out of Alt, that and some good food and lots of laughing with my roommates, God knows I need to laugh more.
Keep an eye on my instagram feed and I will try to get in a post or two in between the speakers and the food and photos.
PS. always pack something sparkly, you know just in case.
