NY State of Mind

I can't contain my excitement any longer y'all... I'm happy to announce that I'm going to New York next week to attend the first ever Smart Girls Conference on July 9th and 10th! After  going back and forth I finally bought my ticket last week and I'm still in disbelief that I'm actually going back to my favorite city!

The two day conference schedule is packed with fabulous sessions like "How to achieve your dreams by 30" and inspiring guest speakers from  Jill Abramson and Lauren Bush Lauren to my favorite bloggers Carly Heitlinger and Mackenzie Horan, and so many more!

I'm already feeling inspired and I haven't even left South Carolina yet. I know I'm going to learn so much and have an amazing time networking and getting to know the other attendees and speakers! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I feel so lucky to have the chance to have this experience. 

NY I love you

Oh, and one of the best parts? My blog friend turned real-life friend Emily of Cooper & Thames is also going! I can't wait to experience NYC and the Smart Girls Conference with her by my side - we're going to have way too much fun I can already tell. #carolinagirlstakemanhattan

In preparation for the conference I finally bit the bullet and ordered blog business cards. I designed mine on Moo.com on Tuesday and by Saturday they had already arrived! I'm so pleased with their customer service and the thick, sturdy quality of the cards themselves. The colors and rounded edges are just adorable.

Let me know if there's anything we absolutely must do while in the city! I've been before (read about my previous trips here) but there are always new things to do and explore in NYC.

Can't wait to share everything with y'all when I get back! xoxo
