What is rewardStyle the Conference? | Day 1



Hey gal pals! Hope you had a great weekend! We took our last roadtrip to Missouri before our move to the East Coast later this month. There were INSANE storms all weekend... the flooding in SW Missouri is absolutely crazy. Prayers to all of those who were affected by them!

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I recently traveled to Dallas & tagged my pictures with #rStheCon. If you're unfamiliar with the blog world, that stands for 'rewardStyle the Conference'! So here is a quick recap on what exactly that means...

What? rewardStyle is the company behind LiketoKnow.it. [This is what allows my Instagram posts to be shoppable!] Read more about how to use it here. So #rStheCon is the yearly educational conference they hold for bloggers to attend!

Who? rewardStyle invites the top 2% of their digital influencers and 200 of them attended the conference! It was seriously amazing to meet so many of the bloggers that I've been following for years. I roomed with SaraMolly & CortneyBe sure to check out their blogs!!

When? The conference is always in April! 2017 marked the 5th year of the conference!

Where? rewardStyle has offices around the globe but their headquarters are in Dallas, Texas! Earlier this year I had the opportunity to visit the hQ offices. It's absolutely stunning! The conference was held at Hotel Crescent Court.

Why? The conference weekend is all about networking with brands and bloggers, attending super informative classroom sessions, and celebrating both the growth and success of the company & our blogs!
