gbs x chi recap







do you remember when i attended the go blog social conference back in march (and it totally blew my mind)!? well when i heard they were takin' it to chicago (a city i've really grown to love) i knew i had to go! so i purchased my gbsxchi ticket, plane ticket, got my girl lauren from classy and fab girl to, then hotel, and packing! haha packing! 

i literally loved every speaker this year too! the started off with brush brews, delicious breakfast treats, and great giveaways too! the first speaker was martiza from beauty for bloggers and she gave some really amazing tips and tricks, my favorite was the not-so-complicated-complicated-looking knot braid. you literally pull your hair into two sections, braid them, and then twist them. done and done. i also loved getting to meet so many wonderful bloggers from chicago! it's so fun getting to connect and hear about why they started their blogs, and what they blog about, and how the heck we are (well basically all) working full time and blogging. it's a pretty amazing for sure. it was also pretty neat to meet danielle from the everygirl. all i can say is that girl is presh, inspiring, hard working, and kind. she was super honest and gave great advice and insight on how she does it all (with her wonderful business partner/ roomie alaina + wonderful team) to make the everygirl what it is. i loved when she talked about the specifics of what they did to launch the everygirl. they used their network that they had genuinely built to blow it up. and boy has it. 

i can't wait to show you the amazing things that katie and i have been working on. there will be something super special happening on birthday. i'm so excited about it i could scream, but i won't, i just want to tell you now. but i won't, not just yet. but just know you're gonna love it! ps my bday is the 19th!

Well it sounds like a wonderful thing you went to and I'm so glad you had fun, but I would highly suggest making your posts a little easier to read with at least correct punctuation and capitalizing the first letter in a new sentence. These are kind of basic things when writing a blog post or anything at all you expect others to read with ease.

I needed that braid tutorial when I had super long hair! I just recently got 16 inches cut off and was always looking for cool new things to do with it.

This sounds like a great conference, and so much fun!
