Friday Five: BlogFest Prep

We’re in serious countdown mode over here at Sweat Pink! In less than five days we’ll be leave for L.A., and in six days BlogFest 2016 kicks off! With IDEAFit, we help put on this special event during IDEA World just for health and fitness bloggers. We talk food picture composition, blog SEO and monetization, and Instagram posting strategies, not to mention all the yummy sponsored meals and kick-ass workouts! It’s going to be a fun week, that’s for sure! Here are five things I’m so super about!

Sweat Pink Reunion


I’m so excited to get to see some of my virtual workout buddies again! And to meet some for the very first time. It’s so great to come together in person to sweat and selfie it up after months of Insta stalking and chatting via blog post comments!












Selfies + #stopdropandyoga

This crew is all about social media and fitness. So I need no excuse to take a yoga pic or silly faced selfie. No one thinks twice about not feeling like it or of an excuse. They just want to make sure they get tagged!

I’m so excited to get to hang out with Alyse for the first time not pregnant! Don’t get me wrong. She was an absolutely beautiful pregnant woman, and, as shitty as she was feeling sometimes (read about her BlogFest experience last year), she was always positive and fun to be around!


But we haven’t (really) worked out together. We haven’t (really) eaten non-white foods together. Most importantly, we haven’t had wine together! Plus, I’m so excited to get my hands on that baby finally!

Getting to be in spandex working out all day every day.

Oh wait, that’s my normal life…


You guys. The Sweat Pink crew this year. I can’t even tell you how excited I am to have 6 days with some of my favorite ladies who are some of the most inspirational people I have in my life, who always support me, who always have my back, and who are always down for a selfie or a #stopdropandyoga session! L.A., we’re comin’ for ya!
