California Dreamin’ at Alt Summit With Mixbook

On a winter day in the middle of February, I escaped to Palm Springs to experience my first Altitude Summit with the lovely team of Mixbook.
This trip and destination was my goal for a few years now, and it was worth every second spent there without my little ones (that I missed lots, obviously). My Alt Summit was one of those moments when you sit down and realize you are so empowered by talented, creative, and badass women that are exactly as you: passionate about what they do and with big goals.
I met a few bloggers, brands, creatives, and virtual friends in the most dreamy place on earth, aka my future retirement home.
Thank you, world, for aligning all the stars, for letting me have the chance to hear the successes and failures of many, and in my very personal case, for helping me think all my BIG dreams can come true if I have the courage to pursue them.
I will miss our morning views, the summer breeze and the happiness we felt during this week. 
Besides all the colour, extra guac, rose afternoons, a crazy beautiful venue (The Saguaro, duh) I was stoked to partner with Mixbook for a Meet and Greet afternoon, in the dreamiest ombre-styled booth  – HELLO, colour heaven! where we had personalized pampering kits (with my travel essentials – a cherry lip balm, an exfoliating mask and a hand lotion) plus the sweetest illustrated Palm Springs map with the help of my talented friend Lucile, including all the best Instagrammable places of the city, for all the attendees of the conference.In case you’re not familiar with Mixbook yet, they are an online destination where you can create your digital world to fully customizable photo products (just like my postcard) and much more: books, cards, calendar and even wall canvases. We had all the new pre-designed templates in our booth and I was swooning over all of them, so I know what’s going to be my next photo project, YAY!Don’t panic, I’ll be doing a full blog post with all the details about these places soon, you know the drill, right?
I wasn’t kidding about colourful heaven here.

This was one of my 10 outfits during 5 days in Cali. Don’t judge, I had to bring my entire closet, right?

Our cute personalized pampering kits for the event!

Thank you, Mixbook for partnering with HeyMaca during the Alt Summit and ographr for some of these lovely pictures.All opinions and extra tacos that were eaten are entirely mines.
