I travel with one now 😉
Ever since my mom sponsored my first trip to BlogHer in 2008, we’ve talked about doing a girls trip here again. When we found out it was in NYC, the decision was made. You don’t have to write a blog to go to BlogHer. You just have to love blogging, and they do
The swag bags were pretty fun! We did early check in – can’t wait till the conference starts tomorrow!
After check in we found a perfect little salon – Stage Nails on 8th Ave between 54 + 55 Ave.
I went for bright coral orange!! BOLD and unlike me. For the party atmosphere
AND on my fingers!! I NEVER get manicures (I’ve only had one other in my life) and went with orange fingers. I’m loving them!! Typing on this laptop is extra fun. Let’s just hope they don’t chip!
I went down to Sabrina‘s room, which is just under ours! Check out her sweet bags
We loaded up in a cab and headed to OpenSky!!
It was QUITE the happenin’ party!!
I sipped some white wine…
Played with my homies
Ate a few snacks…
Hey, there’s me!!
And me again!!
Sisters!! Pam and her sister!
And then did a tasting…of things to come to my shop. GET EXCITED!!
We departed OpenSky and headed to AOL’s Blogger’s Night Out for a swanky swankfest.
Finally got some "dinner" in the form of a chicken tender and corn salad that was perhaps the best fried chicken bite I’ve ever had! It was so FRESH (and it was freshly made by a cooking demo by Kitchen Daily)
Some goat cheese + honey bites
Larbs, Mom and I shared a few drinks…
Champagne, and this cocktail:
Which was delicious!
I drank it down like water though (and shared with mom)
So I decided to actually get a water – a sign I was thirsty more than I wanted alcohol!
We enjoyed a handful of realllllllly yummy mini cupcakes – vanilla, chocolate, cookie dough, PB&J, carrot cake flavors – and a bite of watermelon
Thanks for the fun party
We walked a long [painful = heels] walk home and are cozied up for bed (3 to a room!) so we can start fresh for the conference tomorrow. Might squeeze in a run too!
