Water is your BFF during BBNYC, or any NYC excursions before and after. Bring a water bottle with you when you’re on-the-go, or use this as your one opportunity to splurge on one of those overpriced water bottles at Starbucks, because you know it’s not until you’re at a Starbucks that you realize you’re super thirsty for almost anything besides coffee (if it makes you feel better, I think they donate like 10 cents to charity). *We will have lots o’ water available for you during the various events at Blogger Bash, but I still recommend always having some on you.

Keep deodorant handy
It’s hot. We get it. We’re all living the same reality. Don’t talk about it. Just embrace it because IT COULD BE WORSE—it could be cold.
