Lucky FABB: What I Loved and What Was A Waste / by Erin Baynham

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Lucky Fabb Conference in NYC. You know how it goes, getting up at 3 after freaking out all night, thinking your alarm won't go off. 4am, you're on the train, 8 am, you're in NYC. Here's a photo rundown of my experience. I also did a very thorough audio review which includes my notes from the conference, which you can download on Itunes (and subscribe to the Creative Colony Podcast!) , or play directly from this page. The audio player is at the bottom of the post.

Overall, I have mixed feelings about the conference. I really felt like it was more of a way to sell vendors and get those companies more blogger coverage. However, I did pick up some really great tips. As a beauty blogger, I didn't feel that we were really addressed. As I imagined, it would be an emphasis on fashion blogging. It made total sense! However, I think they threw the word "Beauty" in the conference title for good measure. I think I'll opt for IFB for now on. Again, I go into great detail about what I liked, what was lackluster, and all of the notes that I took in the audio podcast below. Download it and tell me what you think!
