I recently attended a local blogging conference Bloggy Boot Camp in Phoenix. If you’ve never been a blogging conference is a great place to learn, connect and this one for me was a kick in the pants. Sort of that I know I need to do this list of things but after hearing 3 people say it I NEED to do these things.

One of them being update my Google+ (I don’t even have it in my sidebar right now. Shame on me)

The first question I had before going was what am I going to wear? It was fun shopping at DownEast Basics for some new spring clothes (they so awesomely sponsored my clothing). Since staying home my wardrobe has transformed into jeans, flip flops, tank tops and more jeans so it was fun to spice it up a bit thanks to DownEast!

(I need a new pose apparently) The button down, maxi, and sheer top are all from DownEast Basics!

I loved that we switched tables at the conference. It gave a great chance to pass business cards and info!

The mingling is definitely a fun part about conferences. Here Karen from Desert Chica Ramblings and I are presenting our akward stretch for Collective Bias. I think I’ve got the akward part down.

I’m still going over notes and organizing my thoughts. It’s definitely a lot to take in but such a fun experience!

Oh and P.S. DownEast Basics isn’t just for clothes. They also have a home store. In fact one just opened up in Gilbert,AZ. Oh and they are doing a contest to win a $500 Shopping Spree in the DownEast Home Spring Room Makeover Challenge. For entry details visit www.downeasthomeblog.com.

Disclosure: DownEast Basics sponsored my clothing for the conference. All opinions are my own. Thanks DownEast!
