ALT SUMMIT IS every bit incredible as it’s made out to be. I promise you I’m not lying and you should believe me because I spent the majority of the day hearing about how important authentic, raw and transparent content is. See – I’m already a changed woman. JK – I’ve always known this to be true but it’s refreshing to hear the masses adapt this mentality.
What I love most is how inspiring it is to be among a bazillion (seriously, there are so many people here) mostly female, amazingly talented people. People who are passionate about the same things I am. People who are design savvy, rooted in marketing, have a flair for style and an eye for an aesthetic. I am learning so much simply from just talking with everyone let alone the panels and speakers. Better yet I’m not being judged for instagramming every last detail in this place #winning.
Anyway, the fun is just beginning and I’m headed off to yet another party (this one is clue inspired and I’m going as Professor Plum!) but I wanted to share a daily recap while all the juicy nuggets are still fresh in my head. You can also expect an incredibly visual round up post later (as mentioned my phototaking scene is completely out of control).
