Here we are on the last stretch. 5 more sleeps until BlogPodium. If you’re a totally blog conference newbie you’re probably trying to decide between 10 outfits you’ve had picked out for at least a week. I won’t tell you what to wear, you’re a big girl – just remember to look great AND be comfortable. I’ve already prepped you with some first-time conference tips and now it’s down to the details, what to bring. You probably have a pile growing beside your 20 outfit options of stuff to bring for the day. It is just one day so you can leave the kitchen sink at home but I do recommend bringing a decent size hand/shoulder bag over a pretty little clutch. Here’s my list of BlogPodium handbag essentials.
Large shoulder or tote bag to carry all your stuff, Indigo, $170
1 / Scarf for cool conference rooms, Forever21, $8.26
2 / medium pouch for all the cards you’ll collect, Indigo, $6
3 / small pouch (or biz card holder) for your cards to give out, Indigo, $12
4 / fun smartphone case, Society6, $35
5 / portable phone battery pack, Bando, $30
6 / water bottle to stay hydrated, Target, $15.30
7 / mints because you’ll be doing a bunch of chattin’
8 / stay all day lip gloss for all the photos you’ll be snappin’, Murale by Shoppers Drug Mart, $32
9 / pens to take notes (bring more than one), Indigo, $20
10 / notebook for the information overload, Minted, $16
There’s usually snacks around but you could also throw in a little ‘somethin somethin’ in there if you get antsy at a certain time of the day.
You’re set! Ready to mingle & learn all about blogging. See you there!
