This past weekend I went to the very first Latina Lifestyle blogger conference in Las Vegas which was also my very first blogger conference. I had already planned the flight, hotel, who my roommate would be and transportation but I was so nervous as I did not know what to expect. Another thing is I went solo without the hubby although he was so supportive and assured me I would have fun but as he dropped me off at the airport I was unsure.
The minute I met the ladies at our hotel entrance everyone was so friendly and some of the faces were familiar from our online conversations and then I felt relief. The ladies were all so different in age, style, background and it made for a very eventful weekend. Our dinner began with a limo ride to our restaurant where the staff was waiting to cater to us and delicious food along with introductions from sponsors. Over the next days we attended workshops that were very informative and interactive almost personalized as we could get all of our questions answered and even received several goodie bags.
Although I am a relatively new member to the group I never once felt left out or doubted being part of this group as we were all treated equal and everyone was mingling and getting along great. In the midst of laughter, hugs, and even tears we all left the conference feeling like a million bucks! Feeling this way in the sense that we left with so much knowledge, plans, friends, and so many memories of being part of the 1st Latina Lifestyle Blogger conference. I am very grateful that these people came into my life and feel honored to have attended this event, as a matter of fact we are all now making plans for the next conference.
There are so many images but these are just some of the things we experienced during the conference.
