September Catch Up: DDB Market, HGTV, BlogTour London, Brizo NY Fashion week, Guest Speaking..

I know you must all read this blog and think, .. "she's insane!"
Well, it was a bit of a whirlwind of a month .. but one of my favorite months - September.

So, I wanted to just catch up a little bit, and share a few of the exciting events and moments that I have shared with some of you, since after my whirlwind fun at New York Fashion Week with Brizo & before October really gets going.


First, I was so happy to be one of the 10 Bloggers that HGTV asked to comment about the top trends for Fall, where I am part of a great mix of designers and blogger friends, as we all share our thoughts on how to spruce up your home this season.


HGTV.com -> Top Fall Trends - Thanks to Liz Gray for the mention!

As a huge fan of all things HGTV (aren't we all?!), it really meant a lot to be part of their
contributors.


Next, as some of you know, I try and spend as much time as possible "sharing the love", as they say.. and really do enjoy every opportunity to speak at an event.
Whether about Pinterest (like at High Point Market this Spring or in Westchester), or about "Blogging" or "Interior Design Best Practices"... I am always happy to be part of it.

So, when the chance to be a Guest Speaker for two different occasions came up, even though it was on the very same day, and the day after my trip to London with BlogTour, how could I refuse?


First, as a great supporter of every Interior Design Association, it was truly wonderful to give a webinar for the ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) Emerging Professionals program. Over 100+ tuned in as I shared some of my thoughts on the role of Social Media in Building Your Brand...
Thanks so much to Tiffany Neumann of ASID for the invite!

Later that same afternoon, I was able to share my thoughts on Blogging and Pinterest. 
Robin Colner of DigiStar Media asked me to share with her class, as the adjunct instructor for the “The Business and Practice of New Media” course at Fordham University, in Westchester, in depth about how to create a business model and strategy through sharing and communicating through the "Blogging" platform.







For those of you that have followed this blog, you will have been kept up to date with many of the adventures from my trip to London with the Uber talented team that Modenus put together - BlogTour London rocked the London Design festival events and many more posts are headed your way here as I still sift through the hundreds of images and contacts I made.
