LEARNS AND LAUGHS: Wknd Links! | Showering Makes Me Creative… Nutella and Ice Cream? (and Other Great Life Hacks)… and Alt Summit!

Can’t wait to tell you guys about Alt Summit, OHMYGOD.  If you’re not familiar; Alt is Altitude Summit, a blogger conference that takes the cake, as blogger conferences go.  Because it was pretty effing rad and full of gluten free options (kinda key for me, because nourishment) and full of fun people I either already know, never knew before, or knew only on the internet, until yesterday!  Shut up Internet, you’re awesome.

Must say; of all the feelings in business I cherish, the one where you feel awash in awareness is the best.  Amirite?  There’s nothing like engaging, informative speeches given by the freshest in the game to get you feeling all invincible and recharged and shit.  Got some fun pics to share too, because naturally. :)

Btw… I’m thinking you might enjoy seeing all my notes from the conference(?).  I plan on copying them all down this weekend – for some reason I used a thing called a pencil and I “wrote” my notes on “paper”.  Huh??  Very 80′s of me, sorry.  I’ll post them ASAP.

Anywho.  I won’t leave you with that BS teaser crap.  I’ll leave you, instead, with a VERY QUICK note about Kanye and Kim’s baby name… and then ma fave stuff for instant happy face. <–best kind of stuff there is.  And it’s all courtesy of the internet.  (I love you, Internet.)

1. Kanye and Kim apparently named their baby “North West”.  Ok.  Do you guys give a flying piece of jettisoned pterodactyl shit about this?  As names go it’s not terrible.  I just think it should have been Knorth West, but that’s the only thing.

2. Really jaw-dropping life hacks, over at buzzfeed (thanks to a stumbleupon email).  Coupla good ones (but they’re all good):

Does this work??:

3. I love this article that talks seriously and engagingly about why we tend to have our best ideas in the shower, which I found over on Buffer’s blog.  It talks about everyone being a creative being, and not just some.  The science is fun to learn about.  (Even if you know these things already, sometimes it’s important to be reminded!) Here’s a good part:


Smell you later!

      Literally saw your business card on the Great Wall of Business Cards and was like “G-D F–KING DAMNIT”

      So, sad I missed you, too. :)

    Alt was incredible! I usually dislike bloggers conferences (for real, they overwhelm me) but this was just a whole day of full on inspirational love. Didn’t know you were there!

    • Alison on June 22, 2013

      Inspirational love is the perf way to put it. So good. Wish I could have met you!

  3. Amazing Blog!

    Knorth West would have definitely been a better name and yes, yes YES on the Nutella and ice cream thing.

    I think the nutella tip is one every girl can take to heart.
