Hey y’all. It’s been a minute since I just got down and blogged life things. So can we just pretend that we are in our jammies, with a bowl of popcorn, and chat a bit? (Please disregard the fact that I am actually in my jammies and popcorn is near.)
I already told y’all I got issues when it comes to makeup, so when my cousin told me that Rhianna’s line of lipsticks were coming out on Tuesday, I was all over it. The first lipstick she came out with RiRi Woo (a beautiful red with blue undertone) last month sold out in like 3 hours, so I was so ready with itchy clicky fingers to buy.
I am so happy that I got through after 2.8 hours of constant refreshing and a little prayer. I got all three in the set and I SO hope they get here for Fitbloggin.
Overpackers ‘R’ Us
Speaking of Fitbloggin…it’s next week! Wow! I have started the unfortunate process of packing. I am like one of the worst overpackers EVER. Usually I get to my destination wondering WTF did I put in my bag?! Usually there are a ton of miscellaneous items that don’t quite match. I refuse to let this happen again!
So I am taking a better *way smarter* approach to packing for fitbloggin. The way I see it, I plan on having 3 wardrobe changes.
- Morning workout outfit (4)
- Afternoon session outfit (4)
- Dinner outfit (4)
- Party/club outfit (4)
Easy right?! So this time I have put WHOLE outfits together, not just random shirts and pants that don’t go together. I’m crossing my fingers that it actually fits in the bag.
Blog Conference Wardrobe Mishaps
Speaking of conference wear, I have made the worst mistakes when it comes to blog conference outfits. This is how it usually goes down.
- Find the perfect outfit 3 weeks before
- Look at outfit every single day
- Start to wonder is THIS it? Is it pretty enough?
- Start to wonder…can I get more creative?
- Decide I need to switch outfits the day before.
- Walk into store and buy something ridiculous or completely inappropriate (usually both)
- Wear said outfit to blog conference
- Come home and wonder WTF happened?!
- Swear off blog conferences for ever and ever
It’s crazy! I will give you an example. I was hideously overdressed for BlogHer12 for those of you that still hung out with me regardless I give you all of my loyalty because BAYBAY I was a hot mess.
I have since learned how to better dress in conference situations, but I promise to never wear an ALL leopard dress, and all the other outfits that thankfully I don’t have any pictures of. I know how to dress myself daily but something about my conference nervousness sends me into the ugly throes of last minute bad wardrobe decisions. I’m gonna get it one day y’all!
