Louise Roe Book Signing at The Grove

Hi Everyone,

            I’ve been working on a couple of posts and they will be ready very soon;) But for now I wanted to share an exciting event happening tonight at The Grove in LA. Lifestyle expert Louise Roe is presenting her new book at Barnes & Noble tonight at 7pm. Its very last minute I know but hopefully some of you will be able to make it! I just found out about it today, but I’ll stop by and of course will be adding to this post afterwards to share the experience with everyone who couldn’t make it;)

She will also be in conversation with Catt Sadler, co-host of E! News about personal style and tips on living a happier and more glamorous life. I love attending events and this one in particular sounds really interesting, plus it gives the perfect opportunity to add a new book to my list!

For all of you that live in LA I hope you can make it. It seems like its going to be a fun event! See you there!

Okay so this is the Follow Up

“How to be the leading lady in your own life”

        First I have to say Louise Roe is the nicest person! She had us all laughing and made the event that much more enjoyable. I thought she was very authentic and its clear she has that passion and motivation to succeed, which I admired very much. We all dream of the future but very few have the courage it takes to go after what you want and it made me think of something my dad always told me.. He said, you can accomplish anything you want in life, as long as you’re whiling to work hard for it;) and she clearly has. Along with Catt Saddler, she talked about her background, from her internship experiences to working for Vogue, to how she came to write a book. But mostly I liked that she talked about how we need to stop being hard on our selves and start celebrating who we are today. How most people think they need to have a skinny model’s body to have great style and how that’s complete ”Rubish” as she put it in that British accent of hers;) And I couldn’t agree more! I believe its important to embrace everything you are and enjoy yourself:) And her book covers that and so much more. She gives tips on preparing for a job interview, on style and even on interior design. This book is timeless and I am very happy I was able to attend. I can’t stop reading it <3

Simply Stylist

Hi Everyone!

           Last week I mentioned the Simply Stylist Event and it finally came! Was anyone able to attend? For those of you who don’t know about it, Simply Stylist is a Beauty and Blogger Conference held to guide women turn their passion into a successful career. The conference took place at The Grove LA this past weekend and it was a day of learning, networking, pampering and enjoying delicious cocktails on a warm sunny Saturday.

All these events I’ve been going to have meant so much to me. The knowledge I get from them not only takes me closer to my goals but on a personal level it has given me a stronger sense of self, of who I am, what I like and the drive to go get it. I must admit Im not very extroverted and its not easy putting your self out there, but its been so rewarding that now I couldn’t imagine not doing it. So I encourage you to go out and meet people, it doesn’t have to be a huge event because trust me as soon as you start connecting with others, it will set the ball rolling and soon you’ll have trouble keeping up with all the events you’ll hear about and people you’ve met. The blogging community is very friendly, supportive and genuinely rooting for you to succeed so go out there and make the most of it;)

The next Simply Stylist Conference is in Chicago July 18th and there will be another one in NYC for Fall, you can find more information Here. I fully recommend it, so if you’re in the area you should definitely go. Its a great learning experience and you get to support one another, which I have to say is kind of the best part! Love making new friends;) But if any one you have attended please comment below, I love would love to know how you liked it. Hope you have a great day!

As always thanks for reading,

Love, Erika
