Blogher ’12 – Friday Recap

Friday Blogher ’12 Recap

 

On Friday I woke up and attended the Blogher luncheon. Then I hit the conference floor, where I met a ton of brands I already know and love and met some new companies as well.

 

Some of my fave brands:

 

Dannon – Of course! After all I was their brand ambassador and for good reason. I love Dannon!

 

Samsung – These folks seriously know what they are doing. Their smart refrigerator, smart washer & dryer are pretty unbelievable. You can shut your dryer off with your phone. Amazing! They also showcased a super smart TV where not only can you watch videos and still photos, you can play Angry Birds. There is a camera located inside the TV and you can exercise, play Angry Birds and more with your body and hand gestures. It’s insane! And… as much as I’m an iPhone gal I was really impressed with their Samsung Note. Really cool features.

 

Jamba Juice – Please come to Mercer County! I sampled the most amazing fresh squeezed orange juice ever! If there was a Jamba Juice near me I would be there every morning.

 

Hillshire Farms – I was introduced to a number of new products including the Maple Syrup Sausage Biscuits and a variety of sausages. Truly delish! I scored a few coupons so I can’t wait to head to the grocery store and stock up.

 

Best Buy – Was featuring some really cool products as well. Cotton candy machine, tech savvy pedometers and more. I think everyone needs a cotton candy maker in their house am I right? Plus I scored a gift card at their booth. Woo Hoo!

 

 

After hitting the booths I also attended the “Women in Washington” seminar which was pretty amazing. More women need to run for office!
