What’s In My Conference Bag
So this past weekend I was able to attend the BlogHer conference in San Jose. It was super exciting and I learned a ton and met some pretty incredible people. I get a little crazy when it comes to being organized so I did some research about what I should be brining with me. I hate to be unprepared.
1 – A good sweater. Although it was really warm in San Jose the conference rooms are always FREEZING! Same goes for airplanes!
2 – Weleda Skin Food – this is my go-to fav cream. I hate having dry hands and this cream keeps my hands soft and healthy!
3 – Skechers Sneakers – The memory foam in these sneaks kept my feet feeling like they were walking on air even after 12 hours on my feet walking around the conference!
4-8 are some of the most important things that I brought because if I don't take of myself than things can quickly go downhill. With the 3 hour time difference and not a great deal of sleep I am so glad that I went prepared!
Cocculine is fantastic because it helps with my motion sickness on the plane. Dapis Gel relieves any bug bites I got while out at night. The Calendula Gel has a cooling effect for any minor Cuts or bruises. Oscillococcinum was my go to yesterday when I started to feel a fever coming on. And lastly Cicadermine is perfect for chapped skin. (can you say dry conference rooms) For more info on all Boiron products click HERE.
There were a couple of techy things that I needed with me!
9 – My FitBit – I knew that I was going to be on my feet all day and all night so I wanted to see how many steps I was taking. There were a couple of days that I was at my 10,000 step goal by noon which was AWESOME!
10 – Caseco Charger – With the amount that I use my phone my batter just does not make it through a full day. This charger is about the size of a lipstick and gives me a full charge so I don't always have to be searching for a plug!
11 – Roam Mobility Sim Card – One of my biggest concerns when going to a blogging conference was roaming charges. I have heard of people going to the states only to return to a super expensive bill. For under $4 a day I was able to call, text and roam without a care.
12 – Binder – My father would be so proud! He was always a binder maker whenever something big was going on, college, my wedding. It is so important to be organized.
13 – Check organizer – this held sticky notes, a pen and separate pockets for Brands, Americans and Canadian cards. At the end of each day it was emptied into the binder – lol!!
14 – Business Cards – lots and lots of business cards!
What do you bring with you when you head off to a conference?
