Blogfest & IDEA World 2016 Recap! Loved Meeting Mentors from Afar & Learned TONS!


Hello, lovely friends! Happy Friday! Last week Wednesday, I made another trek down to LA, this time for Blogfest & IDEA World. If those two things sound completely foreign to you, I am not surprised, as I had not heard of them until I found out I was going. 😜

The larger of the two conferences is IDEA World, which is an enormous (as in, the world’s largest) fitness convention that attracts people from all over the world! The smaller of the two is Blogfest, which happens the first two days of IDEA World, and is a conference for health and fitness bloggers put on by Sweat Pink

My schedule and materials!

Here’s a little preview of the meal!

Doesn’t that look delicious? Since most of the items are just the item chopped up, I won’t explain all of that. But the rice – here goes!
