BlogHer Original Post

We are now inside the packing window for #BlogHer16. I repeat: We are now inside the packing window for #BlogHer16!

My college-aged son was home this week for a visit, and while I was sad to see him go back to his summer campus job yesterday, it only took about ten minutes after he drove away for it to occur to me that his double bed will make a great staging area for my conference outfits and accessories.

I bet you're starting to think about packing for Los Angeles, too. Great! We've got some travel and packing tips to assist you. Yesterday's #BlogHer16 Twitter chat was full of great advice from travelers, some who have attended our conferences before and some who haven't (yet).

The general consensus about carry-on bags was that we like to pack inside notebooks and pens, snacks, medication (so important not to put it in checked baggage!), chargers, and anything super important, like real jewelry.

When it comes to packing those outfits, roll, don't fold.
