Photo Walk – London

12 May

This past weekend I was in London for the inaugural blogging conference, Blogtacular. It was an amazing experience and I met some very talented women. Lots of valuable information to digest so I plan to recap my experience in more detail in the coming weeks. Although each workshop was incredible, one was particularly special – a London photo walk with Xanthe Berkeley. If you don’t know Xanthe, I encourage you to pop on over to her site. She is an expert at capturing life’s special moments.

The photo walk was about 1.5 hours long. Before leaving the conference venue, we each chose a balloon to take along. Photography is much more fun with props! I (of course) zeroed in on a pink heart shaped balloon. Here are a few fun shots from the walk.

Are you a blogger or a person that blogs?

Top visual design trends for 2014. Apparently beards are the new mustache.

A quirky yet fun video interview with Sarah Jessica Parker. Her home is incredible!

Bought a gorgeous cobalt blue dress from Cache for a wedding I’m attending this weekend. It was pretty lace detailing on the back!

Found this great website for free images for commercial use.

Cleaned out my tech drawer – wow do I have a lot of cords! Looks like I’ll be making one of these organizers soon.

Love this party favor idea!
