GO BLOG SOCIAL x CHICAGO PACKING LIST

Wednesday, October 8, 2014
Can you guess where I'll be this weekend? You may remember from my recap and OOTD posts back in April that I attended Go Blog Social in Kansas City. It was my first blog conference - sounds nerdy, I know, but totally isn't!- and it exceeded my expectations. I'm excited to head to their first ever pop up here in Chicago. I couldn't have picked a better location myself! 

If you're planning to attend this weekend, make sure to double check my packing list against yours so you're prepared for the Windy City event! It's packed with a great line up of speakers and my second favorite - sponsors. Seriously guys, I don't know what it is about these events, but I'm pumped!


Notebook/Planner - you'll want to jot down all the new things you learn and maybe even add a few events and coffee dates to your planner. Pencil me in?
Business Cards - a total must bring for any blogger event. If you don't have time to put in an order online, design a simple card yourself and purchase business card paper like I did.
Pens - bring your favorite pens, especially if you like to color code.
Scarf or Sweater - you never know what the weather will be like in Chicago or if it will be cold inside the event space. Better to be safe than sorry and wear a scarf or pack a light sweater.
Lotion/Lip Gloss - this hand lotion smells amazing! It's easy to pack lip gloss/lipstick and a mini hand lotion to freshen up through out the day. A little extra lip color can go a long way. This lip gloss is my favorite. It's great for chapped lips, adding shine, and freshening your breath.
Phone - chances are you'll discover new apps and great ways to use your phone for blogging. Plus, you'll want to add your new friends on Insta :) 
Camera - i'll be posting a recap and outfit post on my blog next week. You better believe this bad boy will be used a lot on Saturday.
Snack - we should be set with food through out the day, but just in case you don't like what is offered, it's always smart to pack a little something extra.
Portable Charger - you never know if they will be short on outlets or what the seating will be like. Best to bring your own portable charger if you have one. Is anyone else band.do obsessed?
Tote - to carry all of the above, of course! (ok, so who wants to buy me this tote?)

Let me know if you're going on Saturday. I can't wait to see old and new faces!

Don't forget to enter my Celebration giveaway! It's a cozy custom prize :)
