Altitude Summit San Francisco

IMG_6002A few weeks ago, I hopped on a plane and headed to San Francisco to partake in round two of Altitude Summit (check out round one in Salt Lake City). Not only did I enjoy the fall-like temperatures but two packed days of rubbing elbows with the most fashionable ladies (and a few gents) in the blogosphere. If I hadn’t felt like a Sartorialist wannabe, I would have stopped every glittery attendee for a closeup. Check out the highlights below…

IMG_5986Presentation day was jam-packed with speakers, including Mariam Naficy of Minted and my favorite, Mike McCue of Flipboard (pictured above). “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.” Nicely put, Mr. McCue.IMG_5998In person meetup with the Prudent ladies, Jaime (left) and Jacinda (right). If you aren’t a regular visitor to Pretty Prudent, get over there! My sister, who’s a HUGE fan, was pretty stoked about this encounter!

Oh, how I wish I could bring the Creativebug staff to Spruce for an office makeover! Thoughtful creations abound at every corner: chalkboard art, hand-stenciled walls, GIANT POM-POMS, and illustrated creatures. IMG_6004 IMG_6005 IMG_6007

IMG_5982As soon as I returned to Austin, I was busy visiting the virtual homes of my newfound friends. Check out the top 10 additions to my bookmarks menu:
