With all the crazy going on in life right now, I haven't really had a chance to get FULLY excited about a really exciting step I am taking in June.
Have you heard of Alt Design Summit? It is basically a conference that happens a couple times a year in a few locations, one of which being New York, New York. And guess whose got a ticket?!
That's right. This girl!
Myself and 3 other stellar bloggers and ladies and friends (Savannah, Jenny, and Janee) will be staying in a LOVELY apartment in NY city and attending the Conference mid-June. We will also have at least one day of sight seeing, which I am particularly happy about, seeing as how I have never even been to NY before.
All in all, I am so excited to meet so many bloggers face to face that I have admired forever, and also meet a million that I have never even heard of before. I also can't wait to listen to the panels and soak in all the amazing information that the best of the best have to offer. I am just overwhelmed that I get to be a part of it all!
So, in celebration of preparing for this trip, here is what I am gathering for my travels.
1 // Business Cards - One of the HUGE pushes for my re-design was to make sure I get my logo and new site prepped before I fly off to NY. YES. I did it. So now, I am getting new business cards printed for this very special occassion and I can't WAIT to share them with you all!
2 // Lightweight Blazer - These suckers are my FAVORITE travel buddies. They are great for airports (where you never know if you are going to be sweating your balls off, or cold as a witches... you know) and they are also great for NY in the summer, going from the hot street to the cool conference center. I am really wanting a beautiful floral blazer to celebrate summer time.
3 // Wide Angle Telephoto Zoom (Nikon 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6) - Ah. The never ending excitement of new lenses. I didn't know what kind of can I would be opening when I purchased my last one. I love the fixed 50mm I purchased, but it is really hard to get far away enough from some shots, as it is fixed in a zoom fashion. So, I am loving this wide angle telephoto zoom lens, and am thinking about renting it for the event to test it out!
4 // Fancy + Functional Wedges - Aren't these guys the cutest?! They look like they will also be SUPER comfortable, and neutral enough to go with a few outfits. I am a bit in love.
5 // Weekend Tote Bag - I have been craving a new tote bag that I can carry-on, rather than check for traveling. When I first started traveling a bit for work, I invested in some new lugguage, but I went on the high end of carry-on size, and that was a big mistake. I am usually that girl that looks like an idiot jamming my huge suitcase into the overhead compartments. Needless to say, I am ready for a change, and I LOVE the color and class of this mustard tote.
Are any of you headed to Alt New York? If so, PLEASE let me know so that we can be sure to see each other and meet in person! That sounds like a dream.
