TRAVEL: Packing for #BlogHer11 & #CheapSallyParty with 50% off Samsonite luggage courtesy of Sears

Packing does not have to be a chore...

I am really getting excited as the BlogHer Conference approaches and it is now time to think about what to pack.  Last year, I had no idea what to take. I learned from attending last year's conference in New York that you have to pack for sessions and parties like the Cheap Sally Dance Party that I will be attending on Friday night.

What I learned from last year's BlogHer is to just be yourself. Take your favorite clothes that you would wear if you were back at home.  There is no need to waste money buying clothes.  Last year, I saw people dressed in everything from business suits to blue jeans with cowboy boots and cowboy hats.  I really liked that everyone showed their unique personalities and were not trying to impress anyone.

I will be taking my favorite clothes which are all casual.  I will also be taking my favorite walking shoes and my feet will thank me for it since BlogHer involves tons of walking to events and walking on the exhibition floors.

I have a new Samsonite Launch Spinner Carry-on Bag for my trip courtesy of Sears.  This luggage is very light weight and will be easy to manage while traveling.  The bag is a beautiful blue color that is perfect for both men and women. And this bag is currently 50% off on the Sears website - what a bargain!

I made a short video below about packing for a conference.  Check it out and hear the theme music for the Cheap Sally Dance Party, which is the hottest ticket at BlogHer11.  I was so excited when I was making the video that I mentioned the wrong night for the party.  The Cheap Sally Dance Party is Friday night, not Thursday as I said in the video.  I guess I need to write down all my information next time since being on camera obviously makes me forgetful ;)

Disclosure: I have been provided a stipend to participate as a Cheap Sally ambassador from Collective Bias.  I was also provided with complimentary Samsonite Launch Luggage courtesy of Sears.  All opinions are my own.
