Saturday I spoke at a conference about best practices in air traffic control. JK but that looks what I'm doing, no? I guess I talk with my hands. My mom does too. She says its because we're Italian. 

I spoke about blog monetization and blogger/brand relationships with fellow Houstonian, Sarah, who writes Pretty Providence, a lifestyle blog about frugal living. I'd never met Sarah before but she was so great! So nice, had her "presh" baby with her, and Pretty Providence is legit. I especially appreciate that it has a strong point of view (frugality) in a day and age when most blogs don't. For example, I plan to copy this wrapping paper storage idea.

Sarah's baby was so precious as was her lil baby head wrap. 
It's from the Sadie & Claire Etsy shop and they, wait for it, come in adult sizes too! 

Stole this pic from Michelle's instagram. Glad you liked mamma!

The other person I was excited to meet/hear speak was Caroline from House of Harper. She was a thriving (nailed it!) NYC fashion blogger but moved to Houston recently. Her blog is on the top of my blogroll right now.

I slanged some of my books in-between sessions but you can always purchase it here! #plug

One of my instagram followers was asking about my outfit  My boots are still available here from Urban but my dress is old Free People. Here are similar ideas though. Shop it up @MegCravens14! 

Thanks to Thrive photographer Meg Cady (above) for the photos - though I actually think I took this picture. When she was speaking I picked up her GINORMOUS camera and just focused on not dropping it. 

Happy Monday everyone! I plan to hustle and GSD this week if anyone wants to join me in spirit. I have a meeting tomorrow that I'm especially excited about!

XO, Megan

  5. So jealous, wish i had known about the conference! And dying over the air traffic controller bit, because I totally talk like that too. My hands are all over the place - it's kind of embarrassing some times, but totally a subconscious habit.


Thanks for commenting on my blog. You're the best!
