I sit here looking over my to pack list and wonder what I am forgetting and what I have listed that I can probably do without. I've been blogging since 2008 and it has finally worked out for me to attend my first blog conference. I'll be heading to Reviewers Retreat 2012 this weekend at the Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, NC.
Though I'm new to conferences I am a seasoned pro for packing for vacations. I used the same type of list for this trip that I would if I were going to the Great Wolf Lodge for a regular 3 day girls only trip vacation, with a few conference necessities sprinkled in. I also used the blog conference packing list as a helpful guide.
Here is what I have so far:
- 1 day time outfit for each day
- 1 night time outfit for each day
- team gear for tailgate party
- PJ's- 2 sets, 1 for party 1 for sleep
- cover up
- wetbag for swimsuit
- flip flops
- body wash
- toothbrush/ paste
- brushes and comb
- makeup bag
- mousse/ spray
- eye glasses/ contacts
- purse/ credit card/ id
- conference tickets/ itinerary
- business cards
- iPhone/ charger
- laptop/bag/ accessories
- back brace
- my WVU lanyard for my blog badge
- migraine meds/ vitamins
- bag for swag
What am I forgetting? See something I may not need? I'm getting really excited about this trip and feel like I am forgetting something. What advice or tips do you have for me since this is my first conference? I feel like such a newbie ha ha. I also feel like this will help me make more connections with brands and bloggers and help Mama Bee get more "out there".
