Weekend Recap: Rooftop Views

Hi everyone,

            Lately I’ve been hopping from roof top to roof top collecting city views and this past weekend I found the best spot! Perch is a gorgeous restaurant/bar in the heart of LA with cascading greens framing the city’s view, its cool decor and delicious brunch its the perfect way to start your Saturday! This is why I love exploring LA because I always find new places to see and new things to do and this week’s choice was just what I needed!

I had brunch here with blogger and partner in crime Little Black Shell this past weekend, after having a busy morning she suggested we tried this new place and I am so glad we did! Food was delicious, the ambiance was casual but chic and we absolutely loved the view! I also hear that this lounge is even better at night so Im definitely coming back! If you’re looking to catch up with a friend, have visiting friends or family or are just looking to have some relax time while still in the city, I would definitely recommend you visit this place! Its my favorite new gem in the city and here’s why…

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…
