Hey honeys, I’m back in sunny Miami Beach now!  My recent trip to New York City for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NY ended up stretching a little further than planned, as there was a major blizzard (most of you probably already know) that cancelled my outgoing flight.  I had an amazing time in the city that never sleeps (and it truly doesn’t – or maybe that was just me).  It seems like every time I go to New York, I find something new or another reason why I love that city so much.  From the runway shows at Lincoln Center, to fashion events throughout the city, lunches in Times Square, shopping on Fifth Ave, meeting new people and old friends, business and pleasure, it was so much fun.

One of the first things I did in NYC was attend the first day of the Independent Fashion Bloggers conference, which is something I recommend all serious fashion bloggers attend every year.  It’s not only a great networking opportunity, but I had the chance to learn from other blogger experiences as well.  Benefit Cosmetics, MailChimp, and Fekkai Salon and Hair Products had some fabulous booths on-site, as well as Monster Headphones.  I had the pleasure of being selected to do a quick photo collaboration with the suave supermodel Tyson Beckford and another blogger, rocking the Monster headphones in their booth.

Check out the goodies and photo diary of IFBcon below!  For those who attended, it was great meeting you and can’t wait for next year.
