So much JOY!

One of my favorite bloggers OH JOY has collaborated with Target once again ! Usually it is home decor or some type of adorable DIY kits. This time around since she just had baby number two (congrats~!) They came out with Baby Home Decor and Goods! It is super duper cute and wanted to get so much but by the time I made my way over to Target a lot of the items were sold out. Target online might still have everything to buy, I just don’t know if I have the patience to “return it” if I don’t like it (plus,  I like to see it in my hand before I purchase anything!)

I DID get my paws on these Muslin Blankets and am in LOVE! Been using it for everything from swaddling to burping bibs to when I nurse! Love that they are so versatile. Really wish they had more color and patterns. I love OH JOY and this collection, but it does come off very girly and wouldn’t mind more boy’ish things!….Wishfully thinking they will hear the fans and when the next round of collabs come around it will be a little more unisex! Either way though…I am super happy with my purchase! I still want the grid bedding for the crib and some little knick knacks like the security toy! so cute!! Did you get anything??

This was my first time to a blogger conference and I was so excited to find a Gilt City deal and get a day pass with a discount. The ticket normally goes for $350 for the day ($500 for VIP…I know!) But with the Gilt City coupon etc I got it for $250! I was excited to purchase it for $100 off. I am all about the bargain!!
Getting back to the event: It starts off at 8:30AM and the signing in was pretty painless and got our badges and track numbers right away. (the only thing about the track number was even though you went with a friend, you might be seperated due to this..which is good and bad…ALSO that I barely saw the people in the Track #2 group) After that we were told to sign in for our “mentorship program” This is where we get to choose who we want to have a sit down with. Its the Mentor and 15 of us, which I would say was probably one of the best things they did at this event. The ones I wanted to get were already full so I went for second best and also wanted a person who was fearless and will tell it to you straight…I chose Gabi Fresh and Bare Minerals Founder Leslie Blodgett.
Then we all head into the main stage area and grab breakfast! This is where the mingling starts! My goal for the day was to meet at least 3 people and exchange information and already by breakfast that was done with. I loved the energy from everyone about being so excited to learn from today!
THEN the classes begin! It was back to back all the way till lunch, but even then you are mingling and trying to absorb what just happened. Def don’t get much alone time! Lunch was also pretty tasty and everything was displayed so nicely. The decor of the event was beautiful! Really liked all of the little touches. Even from the decal on the bathroom!
