Today I'm happy to welcome Melissa from Savvy in San Francisco to the blog. I first met Melissa at a pre-Altitude Design Summit "how to get ready for the amazing experience we were going to have" webinar. Ha! That's the best way to put it. It was so nice to meet her in person in Salt Lake City and then again at a post-ALT meet up.
Melissa is an amazing photographer, lifestyle blogger and mama to three adorable little chicklets. I absolutely love her wordless wednesdays posts - photos that she's taken that just capture the emotion of the moment.
When I was looking through Melissa's 5 must-haves...it was really scary how much we are alike. I saw the Tieks shoes and laughed because those are my go-to shoes for events or doing tons of walking. And the Louie bag - ummm, only use it everyday to lug all my stuff around (and it fits my laptop).
Without further adio - Ms. Melissa from Savvy in San Francisco.
You're headed on vacation - where would you want to go?
Anywhere in Europe makes me happy, but if I had to choose, it would have to be Paris! It's my favorite city in the world! I have been there three times including my first trip there for my thirtieth birthday where my husband proposed to me on the tip of Ile Saint-Louis. We would definitely be leaving the three little ones at home with my parents since they are a little too young to start exploring Europe with us. I also think it is good for Mommy & Daddy to have some "us" time too!
What carry-on bag would you bring?
I love my Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM bag! I use it almost everyday as a purse/diaper bag with my PishPosh baby insert, but for a travel bag, it's great. I am able to fit so many items in it since it doesn't close at the top.
What would be the 5 things that you would have to have?
Since I'm a photographer, I definitely would have to have my camera with me, a pair (or two) of Tieks is a must with how much walking you do while in Paris and I love that you can carry them folded in your purse and pull them out when your feet have had enough, a fabulous summer scarf to keep you warm on the plane and keep the chill away at night while walking along the River Seine and of course my iPhone to capture all of those Instagram moments.
