This weekend I’ll be attending Go Blog Social taking place at The Berg Event Space in downtown KC (one of my favorite venues for weddings!). Last year it was an incredible opportunity for me to connect with other local bloggers and small business owners.  My eyes were opened to new opportunities to help in the growth of my employers’ businesses as well as my own personal endeavors.  I left feeling inspired and ready to make big changes in my social media presence and participation in the blogging community…hence the Oh So MRS rebrand!

This two-day conference is a whirlwind of information and you’ve got to be ready with all the right tools to soak up every moment! Wonder what you should bring along?  Below are the items that will fill my bag this weekend.


My 1)SugarPaper planner from Target. I’ll be ready to schedule some coffee dates with new friends made at the conference!

The 2)DSLR will be in tow to take advantage of the photography tips and tricks offered in the presentation by dear friend and GBS speaker, Amanda Marie Lackey.

A long day of learning warrants a little snack time, so I’ll be sure to pack a 3)Clif Bar…just in case!

New 4)business cards with the fresh branding have been designed and printed and we’re ready to get our networking on.

I’m the world’s biggest fan of list-making and note-taking (and sometimes doodling!) and it’s more fun when you have pretty 5)Rifle Paper journals and 6)Le Pens to record your thoughts and ideas during the conference presentations.

I can’t leave home without a chap stick and a little color for my lips.  I’ve sworn by 7)Burt’s Bees for years and have just discovered MAC’s Lip Glass…a sweet gift from the ladies of BeChic.  This is a blog conference bag (and everyday bag) must!

Be ready for quick social media posting to connect with the great sponsors, brands and speakers that are present at the conference with your 8)smart phone.

I like to keep a 9)water bottle on hand at all times and this will be no exception! I’ve got to keep hydrated to enjoy the day to the fullest!

Will you be attending Go Blog Social 2014?  What are you packing in your bag?  Share below!

    I’ll be there! Water bottle is a must, there is nothing worse than feeling dehydrated. My brain can hardly function. I’m also bringing a portable charger for my phone since it seems to drain quickly when I’m on it for long periods of time. See you soon 🙂
