a BlogHer12 NYC review

This was my third year at BlogHer, but it seemed so different. It feels like there are hundreds of things I want to tell you… but we’ll save the 24+ hour trip home (thank you, Southwest), my favorite products and gifts, and my tips for another post. Right now I just want to share my pictures and recap what I did in NYC!

The trip out was great–even though I had a 6am flight, got up at 1:40am, and left my house at 2:15am to drive to the airport. It

BlogHer11 to-do list

I have a hard time accepting things are real until they’re here, in my face. So it makes sense that BlogHer is like 4 days away and I’ve barely started on my to-do list! It will be a busy week.

Sure, I’ve done all the basics–I have a ticket and a flight (arrive at 3pm Thursday and leave at 10am Sunday) and a hotel room with 3 awesome roomies (Baby Birthing Mama, Mama B, and Read More…

Exciting news for BlogHer11

Ahhhh, BlogHer11 is less than a week away! I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO. If you aren’t familiar with it, BlogHer is a huge annual conference for bloggers (mainly women)–it’s a place where we can network, connect, share ideas, attend educational sessions, meet brands, try new products, maybe party a little, and have a LOT of fun! I went last year in NY, met some amazing women that I’m still close with, and can’t wait to be in San Diego with the same ladies next week.

I have some partial sponsorships I’d like to

These swag bags had 3 of their most popular products: nipple cream, breastmilk storage bags, and
