I must say that Yotel made my experience in New York City over the top! I have been to the Big Apple more times than I can count on 2 hands but after my stay in this futuristic hotel, I have decided that the Yotel concept is the way forward when it comes to vacationing.
Day 2, was the main conference day. I wore a Michael Kors leather jacket and backpack, a Gracia top and poly bottoms from my shop, and a pair of Jessica Simpson pumps.
I love the workshops at these events but my favorite part is the networking opportunities. I always meet some pretty fabulous ladies and companies that are super in lined with my content.
The confrence was from 8:30 am and lasted until 7 pm. I heard several amazing speakers, my favorite being Jillian Michales and Camilla Alvez.
Day 3, was easily one of my favorites! Everyone knows how big of a hat gal I am, well I got the opportunity to learn more about and actually witness the art with Brandon with BM Franklin and Co.
Brandon is truly talented. He attended college in Miami where he worked for Ralph Lauren. He was inspired in the craft of hat making after meeting the owner of one of New York City’s oldest hat shops, Worth and Worth. After apprenticing for an old hat company in Italy and working for Worth and Worth for 6 years, he decided to venture out on his own to start BM Franklin and Co in 2016.
I really enjoyed mixing a little pleasure into my business trip! I met so many talented people, networked with the coolest brands, and stayed at an unbelievably cool hotel! If you are a fellow blogger or a health care professional, check out BlogHer’s health confrence next year!
