Her Campus Her Conference 2015

This past weekend, I headed to New York City for Her Campus's 4th annual Her Conference. I spent the weekend with my fellow HC interns, the HC team, HCBN members and so many inspiring collegiettes!
My co-CC at Emerson, Jamie

This was my second year attending Her Conference [see last years recap here!] and this year I was definitely more engaged in the panels and with the fellow attendees.

It's hard to pick a highlight from the weekend because so many amazing things went down. Here are a few of my favorite moments from the weekend.

Business of Blogging Panel- Day One
As one of the Blogger Network Management Interns, I got to help curate some of the questions asked during this uber-popular panel! It was great to see Carly speak again [she spoke at last years conference as well] and hear Tilden, Megan, and Hilary.

Hilary Rushford's Instagram Workshop- Day One
Hilary started off this uber-informative workshop with a T-Swift dance party and gave so many amazing tips, tricks and general insight into building your brand with Instagram. Check out her classes if you missed this workshop!

Journalism Jobs Down the Line Panel- Day Two
All of these panelists hold seriously enviable positions at some amazing publications and companies! Rachel Jo Silver is someone who has totally become one of the more recognizable faces of Birchbox and brought some fun to the panel. Plus, later that afternoon, I won a 6-month Birchbox subscription!

#ActuallySheCan- Day Two
How many times have you said 'I can't even'? I know I've definitely said it on more than a few occasions where in fact, I can do it. This is an amazing movement that pairs hand in hand with Her Campus's mission of empowering collegiettes because we can do anything!

Two of the Her Campus co-founders, Annie and Stephanie

Those are just a few of the highlights from the weekend, I'm sure if you follow me on Twitter you read about everything else the weekend included, like free Chipotle lunch, and amazing keynotes and raffles. HCXO!

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things: July 2015

I Wanna Get Better by Bleachers: I can't stop listening to this song! It's the perfect beat to run to and always gets me going if I need a energy boost.

Tree Hut Tropical Mango Extra Rich Moisturizing Lotion (℅): I'm obsessed with this lotion! And as someone who has been using the same lotion for at least two years, that says a lot. It smells great, hydrates and really sinks into your skin and doesn't just sit on top.

Safe Harbor Sensitive Lotion SPF 50 (℅): It's been hot here in Boston, especially this week and even on my walk to get an iced coffee, I feel like my skin is roasting.

Lush Creamy Candy Bubble Bar: An oldie but a goodie, I haven't had a Lush bubble bar in so long, but when I do treat myself, this is usually what I go for! I thankfully have a bathtub in my current apartment, so now I can get back into purchasing these treats.

Lauren B Nail Perfecter (℅): When I first got this in the mail, I assumed it was just another nude polish at first glance. But no. This is so much more and so much better than that. If I don't have polish on, this is on my nails because it essentially airbrushes your nails.

LASHEM 'Black Pearl' Colour Strokes Liquid Eyeliner (℅): While I can't say I've been using this long enough to notice a difference in the length of my lashes, it applies smoothly and without gaps.

Tieks: A recent purchase, my Tieks are so comfy and I feel like I could walk miles in them. Well, probably not, but they're coming to London with me and I'm sure they'll get a ton of use there!

Whole Foods Truffled Ricotta Asiago Dip: Stop the presses. This dip is absolutely amazing. Seriously. Go get it. That is all.

Her Conference 2015
Last weekend was spent in New York City with my Her Campus team for Her Conference 2015. If you weren't there you seriously missed out! I'll be doing a full post about the conference on Friday, stay tuned!

Traveling Made Easy with Amtrak

This weekend, I headed from New York to Boston for Her Campus's 4th annual Her Conference with Amtrak. If you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw a slew of tweets and even an instagram about the amazing perks of taking Amtrak. If you don't, I'm here to fill you in on what you're missing if you're not traveling with Amtrak.

Working like a boss on Amtrak

Amtrak has been America's leading provider for intercity passenger rail services since 1971, traveling to over 500 cities in 46 states, plus Canada. Amtrak provided a comfortable and smooth ride, complete with outlets and wifi, which is very important if you're a blogger and have to stay connected!

Plus, if you're in college or high school, they've got perks for you too! You can save 10% on your fare when booking with the Student Advantage card. Not in high school or college? No problem! Amtrak always has regional fare sales which can be found on their Deals page.

I partnered with Amtrak through the Her Campus Blogger Network but am not being influenced by any opinions but my own.
