The Brand Market Chicago

The Chicago Brand Market was by far my favorite location yet. All glass windows in Palm Court on Loyola Campus and a crisp autumn day to provide boat loads the natural light. It overlooked the water and campus which had breathtaking views. We also had such a positive group of women who came ready to learn and dive in to the content, but also ready to make big steps for their business. I am so thankful for another great experience in Chicago…

And as always, my co-hosts were fantastic. I learned something new from each of them:
Matthew Hoffman You Are Beautiful Project, Hey Its Matthew Shop
Mandy Kellogg Rye – Shop Owner, Blogger – Waiting on Martha
Ari Krzyzek Graphic Designer – Chykalophia
Jess Keys – Marketing Manager – Dean Street Society, Fashion Editor – The Everygirl

Their advice, tips, and stories reminded my how unique each person’s success story is, and how each person’s definition of success is different from the next.

We are finishing out the year in Atlanta on November 8th. You can grab your spot here.

How to Pack Your Carry-On Luggage Like a Boss

Best Suitcase for a Long Weekend | IHODThree Day Weekend

Traveling has unintentionally become the theme of the year, and each and every city has brought different highlights (and a few challenges). I have loved every weekend, although I am happy to retire the suitcase until Christmas;)

During these travels I trialed a few different suitcases and attempted to tote my favorite wheel-less weekenders far and wide. I have come to conclude convenience and spacious organized interiors is the best option for packing smartly and fitting it all in one carry on.

Will post about Chicago soon, but for now, head over to Conde Nast and see which suitcase beat out the rest!

Hope you all had a stellar weekend!

P.S. A few links to items I packed for Chicago this past weekend from my #ConsciousCloset ^^
