This week, I'm so lucky to be attending my very first Alt Summit in Salt Lake City! Today is my first day of the conference, and being the type-A girl I am, I wanted to come prepared! The next few days are going to be full inspiration, fun, and maybe a bit of chaos too - so I wanted to make sure I'm ready for it all. Here's what I'll have on hand during my time at Alt:
Notebook and pen | Just glancing at the scheduled speakers, I know I'll want to be jotting down notes and ideas during all the sessions. Plus, an ink pen comes in handy for making notes on the back of business cards - perfect for jotting down notes about new friends.
Wallet | Not pictured, but always in my bag!
Tylenol and bandages | I certainly don't want a headache to get in the way of the fun times at Alt and since I'll be wearing some heels for various events, I want to be prepared for a potential blister or two!
Business cards | I've heard it's an Alt tradition to hand out and even collect other attendees' cards. I love the ones I have from Minted, and I expect that I'll need to order more once the conference comes to an end!
iPhone | A girl has to stay connected! Plus, I decided to leave my bulky camera at home, so this will be my way of documenting the week. Feel free to follow along on Instagram!
Sunglasses | A constant in my bag, especially during the summertime! This pink pair from Le Specs (last seen here) will be perfect for the pink party on Thursday evening.
A printed conference itinerary | Maybe it's old-fashioned to want a paper copy, but like being able to glance at the schedule without having to pull out my phone - which I'll probably be using for a million other tasks at the same time!
Sparkly studs | There's usually a pair of earrings floating around in my bag, just in case I want to add a little sparkle to an outfit.
Hand sanitizer | While I'm so excited to be meeting so many other amazing bloggers and creatives, when hundreds of people are gathered together, it's probably likely that a bug or two might get passed around. I'd like to leave Alt with great memories and new friends, not a cold!
What are you brining to Alt? Or alt-ernatively (see what I did there?), what are the items that are always in your purse?
Until next time,
