As I wandered the streets of New York City I found myself singing this song (in my head of course – I’m not THAT much of a freak..ummmm) …
I was soo happy to be back in New York City and for what better reason than ALT Summit??!!! It was my first time in NYC for 6 years and I really enjoyed soaking up the city sights and smells..the warm balmy nights, eating at many fab places (2 cupcake stops in 24 hours!!), I did a quick dash into my shopping mecca TopShop and spent an incredible day at Martha Stewart HQ and even saw the lady herself!!
Yes – Martha came and said hi, I think I heard the girl next to me squeal as she walked in!! We had great talks from the ever inspiring Swiss Miss, Amazing food cooked by the team at Martha Stewart Living, great ideas on how to use social media from brands like West Elm and ideas on growing your community from the talented (and fellow renovator!!) Jenny Komenda of Little Green Notebook and the ever stylish Nat the Fat Rat. They were uber gracious when their panel was crashed by Martha – I mean how do you recover from that??!!!
Here’s some quick pics of our day at Alt.
The views from the room were amazing
Me crafting with Paul from Sweet Paul Magazine during our Blurb sponsored breakfast session!
The amazing and very funny Swiss Miss – if you’ve never heard her speak then try to see her asap!!
Martha – aka the panel crasher!!
Enjoying the end of day rooftop party with Martha’s peeps (Yes that’s Kevin Sharkey the home design guru!!!)
All in all it was a great day – I had sore feet and a whirring and inspired head by the time I left with a stack of business cards in hand and lots of new friends!
