I hope you had a great weekend! I'm so excited to tell you about Blogher. First, I just want to say how much fun I had with some of the most awesome girlfriends ever, Danielle, Shannon & Laura. It was great to see them and spend time and stay up way late to chat and eat Chinese food on the hotel room floor:) Its funny how many memories involve Chinese food and eating on the floor. When I first arrived on Friday after work, it was about 6pm. I got in and checked into the Hilton hotel. Everything was very nicely advertised that Blogher 2010 was going on there.
That first night we went to the Hallmark Party. Here we met some fellow bloggers, ate some tasty food, drank some good wine and decorated christmas cookies for the Christmas in August theme of the party. It was great fun. The next day the Expo was just alittle overwhelming. There were two floors of companies showcasting their products, giving away free swag, entering you in contests and talking with you about their products. I got a few business cards so I hope to have some fun giveaways coming soon! Breakfast that morning and a buffet of yummy healthy lunch foods was provided for us.
Favorite frugal recipe I learned from Laura that will make for a great tip - handmade deoderant!
Favorite company I saw - A fish oil company. The representative let me know that fish oil is okay as long as on the back of the bottle is says PCB free and undetectable mercury levels. Now we can go back to taking fish oils!
Favorite pieces of swag - A bpa free water bottle, Martin has one now and I have one, so saving money and the earth!
Favorite party - I think it would have to be Sparklecorn:)
Favorite company I learned about - A Company called Shopsense that gives you the best deal whenever your searching for clothing or bags!
Favorite session - Humor writing. These ladies were hilarious, they had us all laughing in our seats!
Favorite things about Blogher - they used all plant based cups, plates and flatware! How awesome is that!
Favorite thing I learned - Its really a great thing to have an About page just so anyone stopping by can get a glimpse about what your blog is about. Thats probably the main important thing I learned, I have to start one soon! :)
It was a great time, here are a few pictures from the Sparklecorn Party!
What a fun weekend!
