Happy Friday, Friends!  I was MIA yesterday and a little late on the draw today, but for good reason!  I’m currently in Salt Lake City at the Alt Summit conference and I’ve been busy socializing, networking, and having a good time with my fellow creatives and bloggers.  It’s my fourth year here and just like every other years it’s a total whirlwind filled with fancy parties, insightful panels, and inspirational speakers.

I am working on a little round up for next week to share the highlights, so stay tuned!

The List week no. 4

FRANÇAIS vs ITALIANO:  I am pretty obsessed with learning new languages.  Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you that I’m always trying to teach myself a new one – Spanish, German, and Mandarin have been a few of my past endeavors.  Now, with our upcoming anniversary trip, I’m turning my sights to either french or italian.  I have been bouncing back and forth between the two because I just can’t choose, but the bouncing means I don’t learn a good amount of either.  French sounds so beautiful, but I feel like I’d be better at Italian, so I’m stuck. Do you speak another language?  Do you have experience with either french or italian (or speaking them in their home countries) that you could share?

SUNDANCE: Each year during Alt Summit, the Sundance Film Festive is also going on up in the mountains.  This is the first year that I’m actually headed up and I am going to try and do a little celebrity spotting!  I’m headed up with the team who is here from Airbnb and I couldn’t be happier to be spending the evening with them. I am not quite sure yet which film we’ll be seeing, but I’ve read this list of the top films for 2015 and am looking forward to catching a few.

CHIC READ: I’m sure you’ve heard lots about How to be Parisian Wherever You Are and I just finished it on the flight to SLC.  It was a quick, fun read that had me laughing out loud at certain parts.  It’s one of those books you could pick up and put down and always go back and just read little excerpts when you need a little dose of witty female humor.

HOT & DELICIOUS: Being up here in the mountains makes me always want to indulge in rich, hot  drinks.  This nutella hot chocolate from Lark & Linen looks amazing!

LET’S TALK: I am so so excited to be speaking at a panel this year and feel honored to be speaking alongside some other brilliant women!  I’m speaking with Alexis Mattox, Ali Edwards, and Caitlin Wilson on how to launch a product line.  We all have very different takes how to take a design or concept and make it a reality.  This is obviously a topic I’m passionate about since launching my own shop and I LOVE talking with other people about it!  I’m going to record the talk and will share some tidbits with you all!  Anything in particular you’re dying to know?
