TxSC Speed Mentoring Breakfast!!
Hello, friends! It's been such a crazy & whirlwind week. I was hoping to get to my TxSC recaps sooner, but Martin (my hubby) ended up getting rushed to the hospital late last week. He lost consciousness several times and is now recovering from a serious viral infection. Ugh, what a week! Let's take a look back at the Texas Style Council Conference, shall we?! On Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending the speed mentoring breakfast. I loved mingling with my favourite bloggers and learning from their blogging experiences!
Once we got settled and enjoyed some super tasty breakfast tacos, we then walked around and chit chatted with any blogger of our choice. Each blogger was there to represent a certain topic. I had the chance to talk to Jen of Jen Loves Kev about blogger burn-out, a topic that was discussed a lot at the conference; life & blog balance is absolutely something I've struggled with at times. It's easy to get wrapped up in all that you have to do, but we need to learn to cut ourselves some slack. The sky will not fall if you don't get to a post or answer all of your emails/comments on a given day!
After a fabulous morning of networking, I headed down to South Congress with some of the girls for an afternoon of city tromping & vintage browsing. I'll be honest, I was kind of geeking out... I felt like I had to pinch myself - was I really shopping with a handful of my favourite fashion bloggers?! Eee! The afternoon ended with a visit to a fantastic Mexican restaurant (Austin has the best food!!) and some super tasty tequila, which was absolutely the perfect way to unwind! I'll see you guys for my final Austin re-cap this Thursday and share a more in-depth review of what I learned!
