Austin pics

It has been nearly two months since I took a trip to Austin, Texas, for the HOW Design Conference, but I never really blogged about the trip!

While the majority of my visit was spent inside the convention center, I was able to see just a tiny bit of the city before heading back to Philly. Overall, it was a cool place (and by cool I mean “neat”) yet it was extremely, stiflingly hot (and by hot I mean “unbearable”) for a northern girl like me. 106 degrees in June is just a bit of overkill, Austin.

Alas, I had a great time — I ate a LOT of Tex Mex, shopped on South Congress, and managed to capture a few cool pictures thanks to my little Panasonic Lumix TZ5 (and some sprucing up with a few fun Photoshop actions). Here are a few of my faves, all taken on my last day while shopping along SoCo (as the cool kids say).


  1. Ah, you went there? I've always wanted to go to one of those HOW conferences!

  2. Great pics! I went to Austin once for a conference but didn't get to explore that much… makes me want to go back!

  3. Great pictures! I am quite jealous of your attendance at the HOW conference! Jealous, jealous, jealous! I love the cowboy boot pic! And am currently swooning over the pink ones!

  4. The HOW conference was great, Ivana and alishaneva! I highly recommend going… I hope I get to go next year, it's in Denver and that would be absolutely beautiful in June! (And a little cooler than Austin :-)

    Becca, I have Totally Rad Actions… still getting a feel for them!
