#BlogHerROCKS the Video

I recorded some of my new friends as they shared their excitement about trying Rockin' Green Soap.  I was surprised by how many of the cloth diapering mama's that I met have never used Rockin' Green.   Watch video on YouTube Footnote:  I am not really a great videographer or editor but if you're interested all of this was done using my iPhone 3gs and Windows Movie Maker.  Not bad for a rookie! Special thanks to Rockin’ Green for sponsoring my trip to BlogHer ’11.  Rockin’ Green is a natural laundry detergent designed especially for use with cloth diapers but can also be used on regular laundry too.  In addition to using Rockin’ Green for laundry there are hundreds of different uses for this soap.  Be sure to sign up for 52 Weeks of Clean where they share a new tip for using Rockin’ Green around your home.  For more information about Rockin’ Green visit them on the Web, Facebook, and on Twitter. ...

A Day in Pictures – BlogHer ’11

View from Hotel

It's way too early for iPhone photos but here are my best friend and I on the plane at 6am ET. View from our room at BlogHer '11.  Marriott Marquis & Marina - San Diego The packages that arrived from our #HauteGreen Sponsors The fish taco restaurant that it took us an hour to reach on public transportation because our stop was closed for construction. The shrimp and tuna tacos were worth the trip! Did you know I love baseball?  Enjoying  a Padres (v Dodgers) game with my hubby! I'm only awake because of the Starbucks I had before we got there but this is us after a day of traveling. The Gaslamp District - across from the Convention Center & Hotel. And that is how we spent day 1 (arrival day) in San Diego for BlogHer.  I'm sure I won't see my hubby much after this afternoon once I find all my blogger friends so it was nice to have a day with him and our friends before the madness begins.  I got a pretty good amount of sleep but I still woke up at 6am PST so ...

Gearing Up For BlogHer ’11 – One Month Out

Rockin' Green Soap

My countdown clock has been rolling along very quickly and it now says that I have only 33 days until BlogHer '11 in San Diego.  Where did this year go and how did it go so quickly? Gearing up for BlogHer '11 With only one month left I have a lot of planning left to do.  I scheduled a phone call with a friend (and designer and techie guru and all around support person) Mommy Doodles this week to be sure that we were aligned on some projects I want to complete for BlogHer.  While I 'could' do some of these things myself she can get them done in about 1/4th the time and they will look much more professional than anything I would ever create.  Here's just a snippet of my list of projects: Fix Eco Chic Parties blog that I messed up (i.e. deleted - yes all of it!) last week while trying to clean house. Back up The Eco Chic blog properly since I realized we've been doing this wrong the whole time and I lost all of Eco Chic Parties past posts. Clean house on The Eco Chic blog. ... [ Read More ]
