Conference Brain Overload

I have this awful track record when it comes to conferences.  I go with great ambition, I take a ton of notes, I come home, I never write about it.  It’s not that I didn’t have a great time, or didn’t learn a lot.  That’s pretty much the exact opposite.  But my brain was on such overload that I just can’t even digest it all immediately.  And then when I’m finally ready to write about it – I feel it’s too late and no one cares so I just keep it to myself.

This past weekend I not only attended a conference, but I also helped organize it. That about triples the amount of brain usage.  And exercise. My word.  I wish I could say I slept like a baby both nights after….oh wait I did. I was up every 3 or so hours because of the babies in this house. lol.  Love them. But man I could have used a good 5-6 hours of solid sleep.  The 4th Annual Lifestyle Bloggers conference kicked off Thursday night with a VIP party at Besame Cosmetics and continued on Friday & Saturday at the remarkable LA Mart (which is now called Maker City LA) in Downtown Los Angeles.  If you follow me on Instagram, you saw a lot of photos from all days, including some cool behind the scene shots.  (And if you’re not following me, go do it!)

Huge thank you to our sponsors! I tried grabbing photos from everything but a lot of the time I was busy running around and didn’t get to snap some photos. Whoops!
