Lucky Magazine for giving me the opportunity to be able to come to such a
magnificent event. Thank you to all of
the sponsors, and speakers. My last
thank you is to all of my fellow bloggers.
The industry of blogging can be competitive but the bloggers I met were
so humble and wonderful. I enjoyed
meeting you all!

myself. Luckily I was able to find Lucky
FABB since it was right by the bus station.
That’s me! I was so
nervous when this picture was taken, can’t you tell?

including celebrity guests Eva Mendes and Kate Bosworth. Some things I learned include the following:
conference. I agree with this
statement. In the blogging industry it is
crucial to be nice because first of all it is so much easier and
second of all you are putting yourself on the internet. Do you really want your negativity from three
years ago to be following you? I choose
to be nice not so I have a good reputation but just because I know how it is
for someone to be mean. I firmly believe
in “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” This doesn’t mean that I don’t believe in
healthy criticism because well sometimes others know you better than you know
yourself and they will tell you if you look bad in an outfit for example, but
there is a fine line. One blogger who is
plus size spoke about how she has received some negative comments regarding her
weight but she ignores it because she knows her followers support her
no matter what.
although that’s a good thing too. In
your blog, just act natural. If you are
forcing yourself to write a post your readers will know. There are days where I really don’t know or
have anything to write about so instead of forcing myself to write some post I
will just skip that day. I know the content is going to be terrible, so why put my readers through that disappointment too? In order to
captivate a reader and make them a return reader you need to have strong
content. This also means not to buy
followers. Make sure your followers are
true followers who enjoy reading your content.
Don’t buy followers just so you
have a higher number to show to potential sponsors or brands.
a sponsor or brand and it can influence your blog. Remember this is YOUR blog, it is unique just
like you. It is fine to evolve as a blog
but don’t ever forget why you started this to begin with. Only partner or collaborate with brands that
showcase things you would wear or use.
Your readers can tell when you are doing something for the money and not
for your actual blog or the benefit of your readers.

This woman is even more mesmerizing in person. She was wearing her own design from NY&CO. Let’s move on to the lovely conversation she
had with Eva Chen (Editor in Chief, Lucky Magazine).

fan since she starred in the show Young Americans, you know the one that played
on The WB11 (yes I remember when it was actually called the WB) and it was only
for one summer season. I thought her two
different colored eyes were so unique.

just recently got married and you could tell it was so surreal for her. The way she talked about it just made it
sound so magical. She also talked about
the moment she met Oscar de la Renta and her wedding dress for the first time, that almost brought tears to my eyes!

to where I am. It makes you appreciate
your success and how you got there even more.
Even though there was a reoccurring theme to be nice throughout the
conference Kate Bosworth also said to be happy.
“It’s so important to be happy.”
be happy with your own self. When I was
at Lucky FABB I finally felt like I belonged somewhere. This may be because everyone was pleasant or
that we had similar interests, but I finally fit in. The bloggers I met last week had such variety
and even though we all blog about almost the same thing we each have our own
spin on it which makes us all different from one another. I am so thankful I was able to go to Lucky
