the one about Poise Impressa

Wednesday I leave (still sunny) Florida and head to Indiana for the Influence Conference. This is my second time so I have a little experience under my belt. I know and am so excited to meet some of you who I know are first timers so I thought I’d share some of my knowledge with you. Of course, you’ll need the normal things you need for going out of town for something work related – business cards, your computer, clothes, toiletries, your purse. But a blog conference is a whole new ball game so today I have a short little list of 5 things you might not think to bring with you.


Extension cord // 4 girls in 1 little hotel room . . . let me rephrase 4 bloggers in one hotel room. You’ll need more outlets. Lots more outlets.

a roomie gift // these people will be putting up with you for a few days so they get a gift. I’m sure you’re a real joy, as am I, but we all have idiosyncrasies. So get those girls a gift ya’ll. Candle and mugs are always classics . . . I’m doing something a little fun this year so check the blog next week for that.

extra concealer // those friends you’re gonna make, all that laughing you’re gonna do . . . you’ll be up late 🙂

a scarf // a blog conference in the middle of Indian Summer, and I’m telling you to take a scarf. yup, cause those conference rooms get real cold, ya’ll.


Poise Impressa Bladder Supports // Guys, let’s be real for a few seconds. We’ve all been there. At the gym, sneezing, or simply laughing . . . you’re enjoying yourself, not thinking about much, and some pee comes out. WAIT WHAT!?! Yup, I know a number of you have been there, and so have I. It’s just simply Stress Urinary Incontinence. But it’s not something you want to have to deal with especially at a busy blog conference. So these bad boys are here to help. You simply insert it like a tampon and it gives your urethra the support it needs to prevent the leaks (and catch the extra). I can’t believe we’re having this conversation either, but this is a real thing that happens and I’m here to support you guys. So is poise. Their are 3 different sizes  – depending on how much of a problem you have. So just start with size 1 and go up from there. They also last for up to 8 hours so the whole time I’m the blog conference I’m not going to be worried about what might happen while I’m making new friends and laughing the nights away. I won’t have to rush to change undies or go the pody to fix things up. I’ll just be laughing and jumping and sneezing thanks to these. Wanna try? Here’s a coupon!


What’s on your packing list you guys? Don’t forget to go get your coupon to #tryimpressa.

I’m linking up with High Five for Friday, Five on Friday, and Oh Hey, Friday.

    I’m in Florida! I’m in the panhandle area, what about you? I would love to go to a blogging conference, one that involves the foodies of the blog world would be a dream come true!

    I LOVE looking at what people pack! It seems like I’m always on the road these days, and always feel like I’m missing something, so things like this are awesome. Good idea on the power bar!

    I can’t wait to see you again at Influence! It’s going to be such a fun weekend. You gave me some great ideas for what to pack. I hadn’t even thought of a roomie gift (am I a terrible person?!) haha! I might need to pick up something before I leave this week.

    I haven’t been to a blown conference yet, but I feel like we never have enough outlets when in a hotel room with me and the hubby, so I can only imagine how important a power strip would be!
