I had the great fortune to attend the Altitude Design Summit in Salt Lake City this year on behalf of my company Blurb. I was pretty excited as it was going to be a fun 3 day event filled with workshops, seminars and parties and it would offer me some great advice for growing and progressing this blog. It was also going to be my first time away from Charlie which was worrying and thrilling all at once (hello hotel room by myself for 3 sleep filled nights!!).
I needn’t have worried. The boys were great, Charlie is sleeping better than ever and I had a fabulous time (3 very fashionable parties in 3 nights and 150 business cards to sort through…phew!) and came back so inspired to keep writing. The folks there are so passionate about what they do, they love design & fashion, art and style and I got to meet so many interesting and talented people. It was overwhelming and exciting all at once and I now have a to-do list a mile long.
I also discovered some great new design blog reads so as a fan of renovations and all that goes along with it I thought I would share some of my new faves:
The House Of Brinson This married couple is experts in food photography and produce some pretty incredible images that you can totally drool over. Plus they were super sweet and stoked to meet someone from Blurb which is always nice.
Rambling Renovators Run by Jennifer who is based in Toronto this blog chronicles their renovations on their home. I love that she is about 3 years ahead of me in terms of house progress, it gives me so much hope!!
Emily Henderson This lovely lady won a TV show called Design Star and now presents a show on HGTV, she loves vintage furniture and has an awesome eye….oh and did I mention that she was super nice to me and we totally chatted??!!!
Mimi + Meg I was a fan of this blog before I met Meg and then she told me how perfectly styled I was and that she loved my top… so she’s totally awesome and now I’m a fan for life, nuff said!!!
Bright Bazaar written by Will an ever so nice young chap from the UK who has a love for color. He’s very stylish.
To sum up here’s some random snaps from my 3 days away….
