wednesday pinsday: conference essentials

With BlogHer just around the corner, I decided to focus this pinsday on conference essentials. Now, of course, with only 5 items I'm just skimming the surface! But here are some things I'm going to do and use for my trip.

Packing is something I am still perfecting, I have some methods... but how genius is this?! A shower cap is much neater than a giant grocery bag.

Since I'm sharing my room with 3 other ladies, I'm going to make sure I label all my bags - just in case. And putting an address label with your important information on each of your electronics isn't a bad idea either.

This is something I already do... iron my clothes with my hair straightener. It's much easier than warming up the whole iron just to do the collar.

This tote bag would be perfect for traveling and for the day-to-day conference activities. The adjustable straps allow it to become a cross-body, messenger style bag.

And of course... a mini surge protector! I actually bought myself one of these {look on amazon, way cheaper}. I can plug my iPhone right into the USB port and my laptop and camera battery charger in the regular plugs. Great for the room and the conference hall.

Do you have any packing tips? Any conference essentials I'm missing?

  1. Okay I love the hair straightener idea, genius!

  2. For a minute I thought this was all your stuff, and I was feeling very inadequate and ill prepared. I'm definitely motivated now :)

  3. Who would have thought to use a hair straightener as an iron?? BRILLIANT!

    You've definitely given me some ideas for a couple trips that I have coming up--I love the labeled bags. They just appeal to the organizer in me! Plus, it's so cute when they are all labeled and laid out like that!

    Have a blast at the conference! :)

  4. Whoa! I'd never heard of the hair straightener thing! Too cool, and so is the shower cap :). Have fun at BlogHer!!

  5. I have never heard of the hair straightener idea....that's totally awesome!!!! I love all the ideas you've found and I hope you have a blast at Blogher!!!

    Love, Mere
