30 Day Checklist For theCurvycon

thecurvycon swag“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”_ Benjamin Franklin



TheCurvycon is a month away.  Where has the time gone?  I’m very excited.  This is my second year attending.  I had a wonderful time at theCurvycon 2016.  I also travel to NYC often.  I know that this year’s theCurvycon is going to very special because it’s happening during one of the busiest time in New Year which is Fashion Week.  New York will be crazy in a good way.  With 30 days until theCurvycon here’s a quick checklist to make sure your trip goes off without a hitch.




theCURVYcon ticket

Purchase your theCurvyccon ticket – As of today, Platinum and teal tickets are sold out!  You can still get general admission tickets.  Those tickets are available here.  Plans do change so you may see tickets online for resale.  BE CAREFUL!!!!  Those tickets are not guaranteed because they are not coming from theCurvycon’s Eventbrite page.  Only purchase resale tickets from people you know and trust.  You don’t want to arrive and your ticket not be honored.

Did you know? Last year theCurvycon team starting selling this year’s theCurvycon tickets the week following the event.  So save a few coins for that because they offered a discount on those tickets.  I hope they do that again because that’s when I purchased my platinum ticket.



Book Your Room – Rooms are going fast.  They are also getting pricey.  If you’re renting a hotel room or an AirBNB you really need to book today.  New York rooms are smaller than rooms in other parts of the US but sharing is a great way to save.

Did you know? theCurvycon has a Facebook group for ticket holders.  People are looking for roommates.  So purchase your ticket here and join the group.



Flight/Train/Bus Tickets – By now you should know how you’re going to get there.  If you haven’t as of yet book your travel plans.  I suggest coming in Thursday because theCurvycon events start at 9:30 am on Friday.

Did you know? Save room in your suitcase for your swag and purchases.  Some of my favorite brands like Gwynnie Bee, ASOS, Eloquii, ModCloth, and Macy’s will be at theCurvycon mall.

Plan Your Outfits – This is a fashion event so bring it!  You don’t have to wear Gucci.  I find the best looks are when a person is creative.  Time does fly so you want to make sure you have time for your orders to come in.  You have time to try your clothes on and reorder if needed.

Did you know? It’s possible that an agency or two will be scouting at theCURVYcon.  You could be the new face of your favorite brand.

Clean out our phone – This may seem very random but it’s not.  There’s nothing worst than having the prefect selfie all lined up with your favorite blogger and your phone says you’re out of memory.  Take the next couple of weeks and delete the old food pictures so that you’ll be able to capture all the fun without any issue.

Did you know? If you can’t decide which pics to let go of simply save them to your computer and then remove them from your phone.

Make reservations – Start thinking about all the restaurants and tours you’ve been wishing to go to.  Now is the time to books that tour or place a call to that restaurant.  NYFW is super business and your don’t want to miss out because they’re booked up.

Did you know? You can book many tours and restaurants online? Yep!  Let your fingers do the walking, lol.
