WebINK created ‘Graffiti Lounge’ at the W Hotel Terrace with live music, a graffiti wall and freestyle design by Scott Garner // Inside the new ACL Live that is located within the W… this is definitely a venue worth checking out.

Another highlight of the trip was the solar powered GE Carousolar. Not only did I take a free pony ride every day, but had time to recharge the dead battery in my phone at the solar charge stations. Genius.

When I come back to Austin, I HAVE to stay here at Hotel San Jose. I am OBSESSED // The casual dirt pathways lead to little bungalows that have concrete floors and minimal interiors. All of the amenities are top of the line.

The keynote speaker on the last day of the conference, Blake Mycoskie of TOMS Shoes was an amazing way to end the trip. The way he has grown his business so organically is really encouraging. Blake told us that there will soon be the launching of a new one-for-one product, so get ready for it. From this day forward, TOMS is no longer a shoe company…. it’s a One for One company.
