Create Cultivate + Meeting Song of Style, Julia Hengel & Devon Rachel

Hi Everyone,

     I want to share with you the contents of my weekend at Create Cultivate Event. First of all for all of you who don’t know who they are, Create Cultivate is a summit for Fashion, Design and Business Entrepreneurs to share and inspire through conferences across the country. It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet talented and amazing people in the industry and truly learn from the best! The event took place at Culver City’s Art District where we got to hear from key note speakers such as Song of Style, Julianne Hough, The Fat Jewish, Julia Hengel, Devon Rachel, Peace Love Shea, Whitney Port, Eat Sleep Wear and so many more! Bloggers from all over came together this saturday to support one another and have a great time! I cant even begin to explain how happy I am that I attended because what I took from this event will stay with me forever.

This event was intended for everyone seeking a creative outlet to learn and get inspired no matter their level of success, age or whether they were looking to start a business or continue to grow their successful careers. And thats exactly what was so great about it! We all came together to learn not only from our mentors and guest speakers but from each other. At one point I found myself sitting next to a woman who had over 600,000 followers on Instagram and another one who run two successful businesses and was only in her mid 30’s and of course there I was, a new blogger trying to learn the way it all works and I thought how wonderful that not for a second did I ever feel out of place or unwelcome. This is everything that I love about blogging, how close this community really is. About 80% of the people went by themselves, myself included and it was amazing how by the end of it, everyone was talking to each other as if they’d known them forever.

The panels that I loved the most were the ones with Whitney Port, Julianne Hough and The Fat Jewish they had me laughing so hard! Song of Style was also amazing. I was surprised to learn how hard she really worked to get to where she is today. Still a college student, working a full time job and making all the sacrifices to build her blog, it takes so much focus and dedication but clearly it payed off;) My absolute favorite though was meeting Devon Rachel. She was one of my mentors at the event and I cant begin to express how nice and helpful she was. Every question she was asked she answered in great detail and with such honesty! She was very encouraging and was not afraid to give us actual tips and advise, as opposed to the generic answers you always get. I am so grateful I was able to get into her group because I took so much from her. It is always wonderful when someone you look up to turns out to be so down to earth and lovely as she was. I simply had the best time and 100% recommend this event! Here are some photos I took…

Meeting Blogger Sincerely Jules

Hi Everyone!

     So yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting one of my favorite fashion bloggers! She is an inspiring woman with a great sense of style and who turned out to be one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Of course I am talking about Sincerely Jules. I follow her account on Instagram and a couple of days ago I saw that she was launching her very first pop up shop and I had to be there! A friend and I drove to LA and got to hangout with her, shop her new Tee collection and meet some awesome people.

The event took place at 313 N Edinburgh Ave, Los Angeles this past Friday the January 30th. I wasn’t sure how the event was going to be but I jumped at the opportunity to be part of it. Traffic going up to LA was horrible as usual but get we there and realize we were one of the first one’s to arrive so that gave us the opportunity to talk to her for a while. And truth be told, for such a famous blogger, with more than a million followers she was surprisingly lovely and down to earth. You never know what to expect and of course I didn’t want to bother her either but she was really easy going and happy to greet everyone. All this time I wasn’t even sure that she would be at the event so I was extremely happy with how things turned out.

The pop up shop was small but beautifully decorated. It was easy to see her unique style represented in every inch of that place. There were art pieces hanging on the walls, clothing racks on each side of the store with her new collection of tees, a dreamy Flower Bar were she would help you arrange your set of flowers, a mini cupcake stand and many cool people just as excited as I was. Among them were other famous bloggers such as Eat Sleep Wear who by the way had the raddest shoes.. I had to compliment them! and later on I found out that Lovers Friends LA and AnineBing stopped by as well and I happen to admire them very much so you can imagine my excitement!

All in all it was a very fun event and of course I couldn’t help but shop her famous CÉLFIE tee and left the pop up shop with a huge smile on my face. It was very inspiring to meet someone like Sincerely Jules who has one of the coolest jobs and is basically living the dream.  I just created this blog but it made me want to work hard at it and keep writing about different places, topics and people I meet and hopefully you’ll find it inspiring as well.
