New York City, here I come! 51



blogger bash, #bbnyc2016

Are you a blogger? If so, are you going to Blogger Bash in New York City next month?  In 2015 I went to my first 4 blogging conferences and I learned so much from each of them.  But Blogger Bash will always be a very special memory for me, as it was my first blogging conference and also my first time being away from my family.  My family survived and so did I.  Not only did I learn how to improve my blog, I made some amazing blogging friends who have turned into some of my besties.  Is it really July next month and time for Blogger Bash?  Last year at this time I was unsure, I had no idea what to expect.  Blogger Bash was a million times better than I could have imagined.  This year I not only get to attend Blogger Bash again, but I am also an Acorn Ambassador.  If you want to join us, there are still tickets available.  Use the code BBA2016 for a $60 discount on your ticket, or click here, but hurry before they sell out!  Don’t be intimidated if you have only started your blog recently, Blogger Bash is for you.  Or maybe you have been blogging for 5 years and you want to learn how to take your blog to the next level, this conference is for you too!  Are you an introvert and you prefer staying behind your computer screen? Believe it or not, this conference is perfect for you as well.

Top 5 Reasons you should join me at Blogger Bash

  1. Network with other Bloggers, make some online friends, and help each other out!  Meet other bloggers WHO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU DO!
  2. Network with amazing brands, see the latest products (before they even appear on the shelves) and make some great connections.
  3. Attend awesome parties!  The conference is on a luxury yacht, docked near the Statue of Liberty, how cool is that?
  4. Learn how to make your blog even more awesome than it already is.  Tons of great sessions and great speakers right at your fingertips!
  5. Delicious Food! Be prepared to eat some heavenly food and be treated like royalty.

New York City #BBNYC

This was the view outside my hotel during last year’s Blogger Bash. Being in New York City was so much fun. We visited Times Square, attended the Blue Man Group, and walked all around Manhattan.  I am sure you can think of a million excuses why you cannot get away from work, or your family, or from everyday life to jet off to New York.  We are all busy, but making the time to attend Blogger Bash was a turning point for me.  I got serious with my blog and never turned back, and I am so glad that I did.

Care Bears at #BBNYC

Last year I was reunited with some of my favorite childhood characters, the Care Bears.  I could not believe the huge comeback that the Care Bears have made over the past few years.  I never would have imagined that my daughter would be a Care Bear fan, just like I was at her age.  We have watched and rewatched the Care Bears on Netflix many times.  Do you know how jealous my girl was that I got to take this picture with this huge Care Bear?  Her jealousy subsided when I showed her the Care Bears t-shirt and other goodies I brought home for her.  I signed up to be a #ShareyourCare Ambassador of The Care Bears last year.  I love to share my love and kindness just like the Care Bears do each day.

The Care Bears are really showing up everywhere.  These adorable cups and mugs have quickly become the favorite ones in our house.  We even had a small fight break out over who the blue Care Bear Mug would be used by.  I love the message the Care Bears send, we should all be sharing our love just like the bears do.  The Care Bears have other super cute products that you can buy including wall art as we reviewed here, Care Bear reusable cups (pictured above and found on Amazon) and reusable bags that we posted on Instagram.  One last box arrived from the Care Bears and I asked my husband what was in the box.  He sent me this photo below while I was at work.  This adult onesie or union suit looks like it will be awesome this winter (found at Target) !

She said it was better than her birthday!  Brave heart Lion, Cozy Heart Penguin, Bright Heart Raccoon and her favorite Lotsa Heart Elephant will be available soon, and will range in price from $2.49-$39.99!

We love all our new Care Bears goodies so much we made a Youtube video

I am attending Blogger Bash 2016 as an Acorn Ambassador. Products from American Greetings/Care Bears Brand were sent to me to use and test at no cost, my thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
