Wednesday Mikhaila and I attended the IFB Conference. Our day started bright and early again, as the conference started at 9 A.M at Milk Studios in Chelsea. It was a long day, but I can definitely say that I learned quite a bit of new information, and it was a good opportunity to network with other bloggers. The one critique that I have is that, although there were different topics for each panel, all panels ended up hashing out the same discussions over and over. Twitter vs Facebook. Being Authentic. Organic/Original ideas. I'm not sure if the topics were too similar, if the panelists were getting off topic, or if they got an idea/word stuck in their head after hearing previous panelists speak. Otherwise it was an informative and fun day. It was interesting to hear Joe Zee speak about bloggers from the perspective of a magazines creative director, I got to speak briefly with Keiko Lynn, and Morgan from Morgan and Lua showed Mikhaila and I the Chelsea market. After the conference we hopped onto a party bus which took us to the Rivington Hotel for an After Party hosted by KMS California! We mingled with more bloggers, met Annie from The Style Shift, grabbed some champagne and snacks, all while KMS stylists showed us how to style our hair from day to night. Later we had the chance to get our own hair done! We left the party with a gift bag full of amazing KMS hair products.
